    yes, champion speedway, jason bonsignore's track.

    i rode speedway 3 seasons, broke too many bones, hung it up.

    took a few laps as the "swinger" on a sidecar......... more fun than any rollercoaster ever. something about 130hp no brakes and flyin around like a bat out of hell.

    its a great time.

    its making a pretty decent comeback in so cal, with lots of younger talent (what the sport needs)

    brian motis, the driver of the number 2 car, is a paraplegic.

    911 is a ducati, #1 & #2 are gsxr powered, and the red bike is a wore out old KZ1000.

    on a good turn out for sidecars there is 12-16 teams,

    not as good as regular speedway (track is too narrow to really pass) but its a great show. they really hook it up on a longer track

    Just got my first sidecar. It's just sitting next to the bike here. I'm messing with the mounts now.

    Just checked their website, looks like I've got a weekend trip already in the books. Not far from Watkins Glenn where the Finger Lakes BMW Rally has been going on for (hate to count how many) years.

    That is one cool platform for your passively active or actively passive monkey.
    Plush, with multiple rope wrapped hang on points.
