    Nice Yamaha parade. Good for their advertising, but that's about it.

    Good to see that two girls finished in the top ten.

    Now on to the real racing venues, assuming the series continues.

    Assuming his bike holds up, he won't have any trouble out-scoring them both from here on out.

    I would go in and delete whatever you downloaded. Not needed. Spam. Just click close [X] on anything that asks you to download. It usually has an ad that runs for about 20 seconds before you can watch.

    I would go to Avast after deleting the download and run a scan and delete malware too.

    Try clicking on the directions to the TBA race, you get a link to Tabibuga Airport at Papua, New Guinea. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=TBA, TBA, TB

    Sounds like Dave Despain is also getting tired of the Daytona 200 Debacle by AMA c/o DMG. It was quite a shot over the bow in his report on wind tunnel lamenting the status of the event. Between that and his and others resignation from the AMA hall of fame last year the AMA used an cannon to shoot themselves in the foot and missed hitting their torso instead.

    Yea, I saw on Wind Tunnel where he talked about how the race is a shadow of its former self. I think DD is getting tired of Speed as well. They cut his show to 30 minutes, and he just doesn't seem to have a passion for it this year. I think they also cut his webcast after the TV portion of the show. WTF Speed would do that is beyond me. Guess they need the crew and airtime for more PINKS reruns.

    Interesting story: I emailed the AMA HoF this winter to express my thoughts about the Nobby Clark fiasco, and prior to sending in a donation I asked them to tell me if DD, Kenny Roberts, Dick Mann and others were reinstated. I never heard from them. So accordingly, they never heard from my check book.

    Dave D is a shadow of himself too. He's been nothing but drivel for a decade at least.

    I ran into D.D at Riders Hill in Dahlonaga, Ga. about a year and a half ago he was out trail riding on his KLR with some Yamaha race guys, He still has a passion for bikes I think the other stuff pays the bills. At least he was able to ride to Alaska on his KLR on speeds tab. Nice guy to talk to.
