    Thank God for the Affordable Health Care Act!!! After the CAT scan, Biopsy and verbal stroke job the ENT gave me, I'm only out $3,000 I'm so happy I shit myself when I opened the explanation of benefits statement today!
    Only 2 Grand to go before I meet my deductible...
    No Pomona. No nothing for a while.....

    Perris the day after the flat track reunion was great! The high point was seeing John Kocinski ride his Knight framed CR250!

    Hey willie I had to skip out early do to mothersday activities but it was good seeing you..looked for you on the way out but didnt see you.

    John is one fast dude....holds the track record on a '79 CR..pretty amazing rider. I guess he is a world champion rider for a reason.

    Hey Jeff, Great seeing you too! I was probably over trading old racing stories with Scott Sivadge and Bobby Hardison.
    I'll PM you the next time I get down that way.... And I may bring my riding gear the next time :evil

    Man I must have been blind..while I was there I was wondering where all the old racers where. I didnt see scott or sammy tanner or anybody.. but I did get to me Dave Aldana so that was cool.

    If you ever come down to race let me know.. I got a spooled front wheel for my turd Kawasaki ... It may be slow but I am sure there where a few guys out there I could be faster then. As of right now I am doing the vintage MX thing ... but may go a run what ya brung thing for fun at the tiny Costa Mesa track in august.

    I'm really surprised this beautiful bike hasn't sold yet...You could throw it up on the Boise Craigslist too, if you haven't already...

    Yeah, I'm surprised as well... I've had one person in Calif. that really wants it, but funds are tight at the moment.
    I hate putting things on Craigslist as you are open to all kinds of scammers and nuts.I like to shop there, but hate to sell. As a last resort, CL and Feebay and I'm sure it will sell...

    Just got back from the Horsepital... CT scan and they never brought the cat out for me to see!!
    This is a silly Bump...
    My DT1 is still for sale and this time I NEED $$$ to pay for that Dam Cat Scan.
    I was asking $3,000. but...
    Come on, make a reasonable offer and take this thing out of my family room!

    Just got on "MediScare" and not real sure what kind a health care I'm in for...
    Turning 65 in 4 days and never expected to live to this age!!
    Pass the word about the DT1. Thanks for recognizing that it is worth the price!
