I can't speak to motorcycle road racing but after this summer's catastrophe at road america with SCCA there are a lot of owners who are skittish abotu racing their prize cars against replicas. In case you didn't hear about it this pic should give you the gist:quote:
yeah, and d'angelo doesnt really race his 200 and 350 hard.
get a clue. i dont know how much racing youve done, but ive done a little and trust me, there is plenty of racing going on. obsolete doesnt sponser guys who cant or wont win becasue they dont want to wad a bike.
dude you get worked up too easily.quote:we race for a piece of plastic. we all do this for a piece of crappy plastic. unike you sitting in your garage, or basement, or shop, we not only build the bikes, we then proceed to drive hundreds, and in alot of cases, thousands of miles in a few days to race for a piece of plastic. yeah, maybe thier piece of plastic is nicer and more expensive, but its all relative. and people still crash, get killed, seriously injured, and fucked up for life. it just pisses me off when i hear people say, "its not a real race" you just dont know until you do it. i hear people say vintage racing isnt really racing and its not that dangerous blah blah blah... and they think we tool around on the track because we ride 40 year old bikes. yeah, i get a little defensive. the first thing that comes to mind is, hey, if its so easy, you do it. trust me, theyre racing out there. for real.
