    So what was the deal with Salem? Were there different classes? Cause there was the RSD Scout 60 and the run whatcha brung and something that looks like a single. WTF?

    Plenty of non-AFT races look like real races to me.

    BTW, sorry about your exclamation point key being broken. Hope you get it fixed soon.

    There's the ossadmr I know. :thumb

    Because 1) the Hooligan class gets as much attention in this thread as anything else;
    b) the thread is about ALL motorcycle flat track racing;
    thirdly) some of the same hooligan racers will also race AFT events and;
    finally) I have respect for anyone who makes the commitment to go racing on any level.

    OK ossa dmr, I have to partially agree with your critique of Rich B. At least he has himself shown with a real motorcycle as part of his bio. As much as the
    hooligan name and all that goes with it turns might stomach, I do support amateur racing in our area. I know June 9th is a ways off but, mark that date
    to be at Peoria for a District 17 TT.
