    my new hero!:lol3 hell, I can't tell you how many times I've hopped on the yamaha 660 grizzly 3 sheets in the wind and pulled half mile wheelies, but that was on private property...mine. never took a vehicle on public roads intoxicated though. BTW, I sold the grizzly before I really got hurt, do miss it sometimes!

    I could very well be in the background of that photo. Fun rally. Have not been there since the pros left. Still want to though. Maybe this fall.

    The complaint was about the stipulation that the tire marks be removed. I suggest that there are a lot of people who would find them to be a blight on their neighborhoods and strongly object to any future similar events. What's the argument against loud pipes?

    I'm going to guess that anyone who WOULD complain about said skid marks, don't notice stuff like that.

    For all the petty shit that you start threads about, you don't understand this issue?

    Nice response there, and yes I do understand it. You seem to not understand this is a conversation about it. I am responding to the debate over skid marks on pavement. And I'll add that said marks and the caring of the fact that they are present is totally locale driven. in fact I have never been anywhere I have NOT seen skid marks on the roads. What I mean by locale driven is, those skid marks in say Tennessee would be something to brag and talk about fondly, in San Francisco, they might be an eyesore to most of your residents IF they ever noticed them.

    Informative video for the people who think this.

    it's a race car, and play car all in one. Remove a restrictor, reprogram the engine, change a few suspension bits, and you have an all in one car.

    Random thing to run across. That was the year I co-drove with Dave Grenwis in the 654 "Deloris"

    Unfortunately our night ended early like this
    [​IMG]
    We could not reenter as way back in 2006 gopros didn't exist and we were still filming with a mini camcorder run off a power supply. The power supply cracked the inside of the windshield in the rollover.

    Here's a video they put together of Ojibwe forests last summer.

    Been there the last two years crewing for him still and really looking forward to the national return this fall.

    I drove over the spot today. Looks like harmless enough rubbing on the asphalt, but I'm not down with doing it mid-day and stopping traffic like that.

    That is probably a group of young people who haven't had positive role models. Things could have gone very wrong very fast.
