Ive always thought that two strokes were easier to work on and generally cheaper to build. What does everybody race here? The RD400 I have in the garage seems quite a bit lighter than CB400f's Ive had kicking around. Wouldnt that be really helpful on the tracks? Can a CB400F race on a 350 class?

Whens the wheel starts awhoblin start thinking about stopin.

as joe said earlier, there's usually slow guys in most classes so it wouldn't matter much which class you started in. just pick a bike you feel comfortable working on when it breaks or you crash....because both will happen eventually <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
yeah, and lose <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

just kidding. check the uscra rules. we've got guys on our team that race in 250GP, 350GP, 500GP, OpenGP, ULWSV, LWSV, and MWSV in either their specific classes or bump classes so you'll always have someone you know at least on the grid. I can't say how close they'll be after the flag drops though. we've got riders like the ULWSV champion, Aaron "Look at my knee pucks" Phinney, the grizzled veteran, Tony "the Knife" Coccoro, and the silky smooth, Joe "touch my zebra" Clancy who ride like crazed two-wheeled terrors. and to keep up with the likes of these fellas would take the reflexes of a cat and a set of plums even your mother would double-take at.

getting bored at work, can you tell? really though, its a ton of fun. aaron is the only one who would put you in the grass if it meant getting by you in the chicane.

LOL, just kidding
