    I find myself here more than the open Oldshool so I thought I would post a reminder. Corsa Moto Classica at Willow Springs in Rosamond CA April 27-29.
    Lots of this:

    I have been to VIR for vintage days, I really think its better racing then anything out there. The time and effort the guys put into these bikes is huge.

    Excellent! It is also reasonably family friendly (depending upon where you camp)

    Fun weekend, if you don't count that I seized my bike in a practice session Saturday morning. Thank God for beer.
    Hung with Renner and met Kaiju. May have to start a thread on the teardown and rebuild, unless I did something really stupid to cause the failure. Then I will begin my work of fiction.
