    Great job on getting out and racing Pasta! Glad to hear you are not seriously hurt. I have found the DNF's arent nearly as bad as the DNS's. Glad to see you still at it. Hope to cross paths sometime in 2012.

    So I was semi compassionate yesterday, seeing how he was wore out and such, but this is a new day and the internet was created for the sole purpose of abusing your friends.

    Dood, you ran the fastest first loop out of 8 guys in your class and 2nd fastest loop2! You have the speed, you just need to pace yourself a little better (look who's talking:rolleyes). And maybe race some scrambles where you get to run the same loop twice.

    yeah, since I have taken all of your other advice..... and dammed if you havent been wrong yet....im going to start layering down.

    and holy crap was I really 1st again on the first loop? thats crazy. I was completely wide open for the entire bomb. I passed a lot of guys....

    the KTM WORKS SO WELL, its almost like the faster you go, the better it works. I cant believe I even got 2nd with a flat front....

    :evil

    Obviously I need to spend some time toughening up and riding more. Can hardly move today.... tomorrow should be interesting.

    I was carrying a spot. here is the hill that I finally couldnt make it up.

    sad thing is, it doesnt even look like its that far from anything but MAN..... it might as well have been on the moon

    I am officially gonna race my first "off road" race at the Elsinore Grand Prix...and yes i am pretty sure i will be puking after...this fat boy is out of shape.

    i told the wife to be ready with some water and some towels soaked in water for afterward :D

    They say they are running the same basic course as last year. That means lots and lots of turns.

    I am looking like I am going to miss the GP. I'm tired and out of money, and it won't do anything to improve my standing in points. Besides, the Coyote Dual Sport is a couple weeks after that and I need to get the 525 going again.

    having you out for the races next year would be awesome. I know that after a few races once you get the hang of it you will be really fast.

    I think im done for this season..... the wife pointed out that we havent had any chill weekends to ourselves in a VERY long time so we are going to take the weekend off.

    plus the fact the dammed KTM is STILL in the truck..... I desperately need to wash it, change the oil, screens, filters, etc etc and fit new tubes and tires.
