    I used to race a Henry J like that back in the 80s. Never could get that car to go straight after I put the big block in it.

    The camera is a Nikon D90 - pretty dammed old by todays standards but I have an excellent lens. To give you an idea of how old, it was the first DSLR to record video

    :lol3

    but it takes good pictures. Ive shot many weddings on it.

    and the event - oh dood - it was the coolest event ive ever seen in SB. I ran into people from Long Beach, San Fran, Germany, Japan, Ireland, Australia.... and EVERYONE was smiling and happy. Everyone was stoked, taking pictures, cheering. It was amazing.

    I dont want to flood this thread with a bunch of photos of mine so you can just go here to check them out if you like.

    The night before the event, I snuck in on my Speed Triple. Nobody stopped me from riding into the pit area, then I was taking pictures of the track etc

    and I literally stepped on an All Access pass. I had already paid for the ticket for the next day but I went down early with the pass and they let me go almost anywhere I wanted to. I even made it into the Cycle World article they did about it because I was everywhere that day - 12 hours on my feet shooting

    :thumb

    but there was just SO much to see.... I wanted to get pics of it all. I love being in the middle of it all, I like breathing the exhaust and getting oil and grease on me. Im a petrolhead

    Not when I was racing, but I probably did in the early 70s

    Curve drags. This could be the genesis of a whole new sport.

    It's been awhile since I was a regular visitor and poster to Advrider. It seems that every time I start hanging around the forum, I start spending too much money.
    I blame this thread...
