Mike O. crashed out early on with his Honda 350, but took a 3rd in the side cars with Spinney.

Johnny B. took a 6th in Lightweight, a 12th in Middle, and a remarkable 7th in Heavyweight all on his little Honda 350four.

Tony C. took a 3rd in the Open, a 3rd in Master, and a 1st in the Eurocup. Doing it with ever so much style and grace.

Aaron P. took a 2nd in Ultra Lightweight cause there was no one in his class and BSA's are the dung of the earth, but did do an impressive smoke show that ended the life of the little Ceefer permanently.

Joe C. was missed and was needed many times.

Also I've never seen such a nice bike pounded so many times in one weekend. The new Phil Busch Honda was put down by Johnny and then straightened out, and then I smacked it down like the bitch that it was... I did end up with a little crack in my rotator cup.

I've driven several modern and vintage bikes around Loudon, but that was probably one of the best built bikes I've ever driven.

You know thats the worst part of the way the season ended. I never got my chance to beat John fair and square, so now I have to listen to him talk about how great he is for a whole winter. John... I looking forward to next spring.

Relax this! Joe you know I like you so I don't have to worry about offending you... What a fucking stupid idea. I mean the intentions are good but doesn't follow the "in the spirit" of things approach. Plus most oil, when your at speed, isn't going to go straight down. And unless you have a full fairing that goes above where your leak starts, its not really going to do much for you any way. Do you remember racing Jeremy and needing to use degreaser just to clear your helmet. You would need to cover his whole bike and him to protect yourself and the track from oil. Bret would probably run out of glass trying to make something like that for Jeremy. I think the idea behind it is in the right intention, but if you sat back and looked at the whole picture and realized if they just used the already exsisting rules we wouldn't have to make our classic bikes look like modern ones. I think oily tracks suck, but I think bikes that have the potential to leak should be stopped in tech. Tech Inspection has turned into more of a conversational piece that lets you know for next time what you might want do. I rather be turned away for being a stooge and properly preparing my bike, than to have my look like a Gixser wanna be.
