    "I've been layin low, the wife downloaded a 2011 baby boy so I only got about 5 days of trails and 1 race in last year."

    Hmmmm...this is disturbing on so many levels......just 2 quick thoughts.....1. Have you figured out how she ended up in that condition :rofl and 2. have you thought of the implications of your gene pool replicating? :evil

    But congrats none the less :clap

    I was thinking about being down that way for Daytona this year...but looks like I will on a road trip to Algeria and Finland about that time :eek1

    Tom,

    I have seen that Quadrant in person that is pictured. It definitely doesn't look like a CB motor in a Trident up close. Actually very well done by someone.

    1-I dont think you want me to explain how it happened:lol3
    2-Hopefully his momma's side prevails.

    It's a little funky now that the AHRMA road races arent until October. Still got MX,CC and Trials over @ Gatorback which is a good time. We are gonna run the CC race and possibly take a stab at the Alligator Enduro.

    Not original it's a knockoff but, yeah.

    :deal
    Rattlecan paint job on an extra tank that I did 2 years ago.
    Back in 84 I never got around to doing any graphics on the original blue.

    [​IMG]

    Would you speak so kindly still if I was running the old tank?
    But I do agree, with the addition of red/white/stickers, it "makes it".
