    I'll try to have something put together over the week end. For intermission we may have a "street bike" class, maybe 20 bucks to enter "run whatcha brung" 100% pay back to the first third of the field. More info to follow.

    First I want to thank SEMDTRA for the opportunity to host an event and on short notice I will strive to put on an event that will be the first of many. Flyers and stuff will follow shortly gate times will be whenever you show up but the flyer says 3:00, practice and racing will start around 5 and 7. Admission will be 10 bucks and everything else will look just like a SEMDTRA event.

    NOW!!! This is the deal... Tar Heel Spedway is doing what we call "Racing For a Reason" Sept. Is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and THS is going to donate a portion of the race proceeds and our take on the 50/50 drawing to St. Baldrick's Foundation for Childhhood Cancer Research. Our Grand Marshall/Honorary Starter will be Hanna Markham, the 4 year old daughter of a friend of mine, she has been fighting cancer almost half her life and has what her Dad calls "The most ferocious fighting spirit he's ever seen in anyone" We've set a goal of 2000 bucks and if that goal is reached I will sit on the flag stand and have my head shaved... Go to http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/655335/2013 to get a head start.

    Matthew 6:19*Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
    20*But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
    21*For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

    It ain't about the motorsickles...

    Not Outback, but did get some riding in today with IFixFords, Mike (not sure his adv handle), and fast Rick, who continues to live up to his name. :-)

    Mother Nature had taken her summer toll and demanded a pre-ride sacrifice, so we took on briars and brambles a rabbit wouldn't venture into in order to make a few of the sections passable.

    Only one blister, but got the initial round of arm pump out of the way before even getting on the bike. :lol3

    Post ride - my handicap pass is nearly expired. I do feel guilty using it now, so I guess I better stop before I jinx myself.

    It's only fitting, since I set my personal best time ever on this trail today, less than 4 months since my surgery - doc and physical therapy lady both say I'm way ahead of the game in recovery, almost feels normal except for the stiffness, limp, achy pain, tingling toes, 4 screws, and the bone chip still floating around in there. But other than that, it's great! :lol3:lol3:lol3

    Had a great day of DS riding in the mtns yesterday till about 4:00. Left Morganton about 9, did the usual FS road stuff. Rode the rocky Uwharrie type trail that crosses Yancey Ridge, hit Blowing Rock for a cool lunch about 3. Headed down Globe and saw a trail and did the WWTG? ( Wonder Where That Goes). About 10 min into that one we were missing a rider. Backtrack and tried to find his collarbone on the trail someplace.

    Getting him out of there with a broken collarbone and to Morganton was a miserable experience.

    All good. Clean break.

    Magellan will be back riding with some extra sheet metal. :muutt

    Glad to see you're back in the saddle NB. :D

    Sorry to hear about Magellan's broken collarbone EDK. :eek1 Guess he's not going to be up for the Ryan Young clinic here at the farm in Oct. :cry

    Cool bit of news...NCMP stepped up and will no longer allow quad-tards at the facility. Heard that the only ATV's allowed are those owned by member who previous held annual memberships.

    Way to go NCMP! :clap:clap

    "Back Wheel Bob" and me marked 2 Trials sections for upcoming CVOTC event here at the "H" and built one of the sickest play areas you'll ever see. :evil Will try and remember to snap a few pics when I'm back there next time.

    Great weekend to be riding! :clap:clap:clap:clap:clap

    Yea..
    Amusingly, I think I saw more k wads there today than previously... They gave a few people that drove there a pass to ride trails... People claimed they didn't know.. But at least the quads were off of the tracks

    And the quads that were there were friendly...

    Had to get the Triumph inspected. I decided to do it today. Wouldn't you know that Ray Price Triumph/Ducati is closed on Wednesdays? Glad I called.

    So now I'm waiting for an inspection at a Harley dealership....again. The only thing slower than an HD rider is an HD service department. This has been a common theme at every HD place I've ever entered. I should have just rolled over to Meridian.

    Yeah, I elected to check out the HD dealership in Pinehurst. I haven't had anything inspected there in a while. It took them an hour to get to it, and then they walked in and told me my rear tire will fail. They didn't charge me, but the bike never moved either. Guess I'm changing a tire during lunch.

    Honda of Sanford is THE place to get stuff inspected. Lynn is very accommodating to say the least. :wink:

    Noted. Next one is going there. In the meantime I've got a Metzeler 880 that WILL NOT come off the freaking rim.

    Donkey,

    If you're just looking state inspections, just about anywhere that inspects cars will inspect MC's now. I take everything, including my Ural to a Citgo station in Salemburg, or Black's Tire (hate to give those jokers a plug... but it's just an inspection) which is right by my house. No problems.

    Some places are still afraid to inspect bikes, but now that it's all computerized (no sticker) any inspection shop CAN.

    Morgans BP at HWY 5 at US 1 did my bikes. He likes Urals :norton (the first time I took it there he really liked reverse) He usually doesn't mess around and lets you get in and out so you don't get run over by everyone getting tire work.

    As for the Harley dealer... I've been dealing with them off and on for over 25 years. SOmetimes we friends, sometimes we're not. I guess I've mellowed in my old age and I don't let them get me wound up like I used to. I just wish they'd quit sending sad sacks to me about Urals :) Zach seemed OK to deal with, Sherrill and I always tussle. Joe won't sell anything and Darrell is just Darrell. Did they have any used junk worth looking at? I'm fixing to send the RE away and looking for a T-Dub. See, I gotta plan in mind....
