    I'd sure like to still be racing, but quit 6 years ago when I was 70. Here's what I used to ride. I built all of the bodywork, disk brakes and exhaust from scratch.

    So what are you going to ride now, trials bikes?

    How was the racing at Mid Ohio? it looks like a great track, fast and wide on YouTube vids.
    It’s one of those tracks I would like to travel to.

    Not too shabby for an old guy

    ... I imagine Kansas doesn't have many places to ride that are not flat and wide open anyway.

    I like the layout of the track. There are some rough spots from the cars and a portion of the track that is shiney and polished. Almost looks like glass.
    Practice on Friday was great. I was race 3 on Saturday and the track was dry. A little nerve-racking because some of the patched sections are right in the middle of the racing line, but it was a lot of fun.
    Started raining during race 7 and that shiney surface turned to ice. 7 guys went down and the race was red flagged. They ended up cancelling half the races on Saturday due to incoming storms.
    They tried running them Sunday morning before lunch, but I believe it started raining again and they ended up cancelling. We left early Sunday because my race got pushed back and I wanted to get
    home at a reasonable time.

    The AMA rep said they were in negotiations with Mid-O to resurface the track and hoped something would happen in the next year.

    I'd go back, but would stay off the track if it was wet.

    As an event, it's definitely worth the trip. It's like Barber but less rules and less refined.

    I like my shocks like I like my carryout. Cheap and Chinese.
