+1 on those board track racers, there is a small M/C museum near here on Route 66, there is a board track bike there set on a little section of board track, 60 degree bank. Scary just to look at that thing. Dallas is not usually a slick track, I think they have pretty good dirt there. Last interview I saw with Tomac he sounded undecided about riding a 450, but I'll be surprised if he doesn't ride 2-3 rounds of 450 class. Like someone said, KDub's bike is just sitting there, riderless. .
