Labor Day

I'll be headed to Springfield, IL to watch flat track racing at The Mile. Gotta love guys who throw a bike sideways at over 100mph with a boot down, grinning the whole way.

Correction.


That's probably true for the Texas guys. There's a reason they're all so happy to come out to the 123 and Eureka.

As a rule of thumb though Sumo riders are twisty specialists. Fastest bike through a corner. And we can't really go fast in straight lines so we put a lot of effort into being good around a bend.

You'll notice that those guys who live in open, straight, boring areas make up for their lack of cornering skill with wheelie skill. It's all they do, wheelies everywhere! It gets old after about 30 seconds.

Ahhh I see how you deceptively deleted a word out of my post when you quoted me to make some strawman arguement. See, anybody can do that shit.

It's at the end of the month, not next weekend last I heard. I might run down there one evening and hang out with some folks I know that'll be there.

Can I block posts, emails and messages from specific users?

If there are particular members that bother you and you do not want to see their posts or receive Private Messages and Emails from them, then you can add these members to your 'Ignore List'. There are several ways to do this:

Through your User Control Panel: User CP, Settings & Options, Edit Ignore List. Then, type their name into the empty text box and click 'Okay'.
