Glad to hear you are on the mend and headed in the right direction. Please don't hesitate to PM me if I can be of any help to you while you're laid up.

I fully agree. The first-hand account of your incident is well worth the cost of a meal!

Two wheels, but only one man (or woman) power...

Don't know if any of you even know this was built in Rock Hill but they have an Olympic class 250 meter velodrome that's been in operation about a year. Well, August 22 to 24 they are having the Elite National championships there. Fastest people in the country competing on a 42 degree banked track. The guys can self-propel about 40 mph and the ladies about 35 mph.


Here's the flyer for the event:



So it's free, you can buy food there or bring your own. BTW No booze, city facility...

What more can you want? Oh wait, that's right... women in spandex. What's not to like? (the pic below is Masters Nationals from last week)


Every Friday night at 7 they have racing in Rock Hill. Never any admission, part of the city parks system. No food there yet, but eventually it will have retail and restaurants around it. This place is right across from Competition Accessories if you know where that is. Today there were 20 riders competing in 6 races, took about 1 hour 45 minutes which was moving along at a pretty good pace. Lots of fun, I'm there every Friday I can make it helping out, and my wife races there every Friday she can make it. Lots of fun, exciting stuff, for us anyway.

Turn left, go fast.
James

Eighteen Years In The Making

My son and I took our first overnight motorcycle trip together this past weekend over to ride Deals Gap and the Cherohala Skyway. It was his first time -- taking an overnight trip on a motorcycle, riding in the mountains, riding in the rain and fog, riding on an Interstate and riding in the city.

See you guys Thursday evening at Hawthorne's.

camping in the Smokies

Just a quick post to note that I am still breathing - the purchase and subsequent remodel of an older home has hijacked all my free time lately...

But, I'm still on 2 wheels: just got back from a great camping trip in the Smokies, mostly riding with members of the Honda Super Magna forum.

Supposedly this will open for non-Spacebook members, we'll see:

In other news, my old Dirty Bird just rolled 75K miles on the trip back home!

Depending what time my flight lands, I may come straight from the airport, in the cage.

I won't be able to stay too long - need to leave town again around 6 on Friday morning.

I was thinking / hoping for the same thing! We've been hearing about it long enough...
