I guess now you'll HAVE to rebuild the BSA to beat him fair and square. Yeah!!! Cant wait to see it out there again. Kinda funny that John is still proclaming himself the best when I hardly ever saw him on anything on the track bigger than a 50cc! It'll be so long til he rides that canoli roller again he'll forget what to do on it!! He does take great pictures though. Too bad you didnt get that Benelli John. Did you get my email?? That was you bidding right?

dude, youre funny. God, dont inflate his ego anymore than it already is. I think aaron might take you up on racing you with your eyes closed, if youre not careful. John, since we are in a relatively closed forum, any thoughts on belly pans from you?? Im not looking to start an argument here. Just wondering what your feelings are. I probably wont put one on my bike just out of shear laziness. If they mandate them, I'll do it no questions asked. I have had oil leak from my bike once in the 4 years ive been racing. Loose cam chain tensioner assembly. So an oil pan wouldnt have done a damned thing to stop that. it rolled across the engine case and onto my footpeg. A slippery peg alerted me to the problem otherwise I probably wouldnt have noticed it. I dont really know how much got onto the track surface but no one crashed anytime near the incident. I did alert the corner workers but there were no oil flags or anything like that displayed. I think the cars were really bad this year. There was so much oil in t3 from them. Then the antifreeze incident in t2 was really bad. I can understand the purists like yourself or aaron who dont want to use them becasue it affects the look of the bike. The same reason I think they dont mandate some of those open wheeled vintage sports cars to have roll bars. Well, that and a sports car costs alot more to cut into. Then there is always the 2stroke issue. But to be honest, I see a crap load of those 2 strokes barfing oil from the exhaust ports. Anyway, any opinions?? Anyone else should opinionate too if they have one. But remember, we dont make the rules, so I just want an open relaxed conversation.

the reason i got the oil shower from jeremy was from his pipes. i think the idea is to collect parts and pieces and oil from a thrown rod etc... the question is how many times have you seen that?? id agree that the oil just blows right on through. that was my point with the cam chain tensioner leak, if i had an oil pan, it wouldnt have made it in there anyway. it did oil my boot and tire nicely though. i dont know how i really feel about the entire thing. id hate to see a nice old true to form bike be wrecked by having a turkey roaster pan bolted to the bottom of it though.

<<I rather be turned away for being a stooge and properly preparing my bike, than to have my look like a Gixser wanna be.>>


fortunatley they dont fail you for that. or having a zebra striped furry seat. (although they did threaten once)


man, the uscra board is getting hostile. the sound issue has now come up too. these guys are really trying to make enemys. and some of us know how i feel about the sound issue. maybe aaron and i should start our own club....non gixxer as loud as you want to be non dual diskers racing. the only rules are, you cant look like gixxer, and you can only have one disk on the front. maybe some sort of displacement or hp/weight ratio break down just to make things fair. anyone wnat in?? that would be one crazy acronym for a url though. www.ngalaywtbnddracing.com (?)
