Yes. I'm not happy about doing monday and then racing Friday, moving stuff twice in the van, but it's a good wacko way to start the season. Not to mention spending too much $$. But at least its good practicce before the vintage celeb.

yeah, then you also get a couple of days to fix things that are broken! having the jump on the club for practice is going to be huge. you'll beat alot of guys i bet you wouldnt otherwise. ive never done one of those things but they sound like alot of fun.

350, lwsv, and 500. i got tanner to run 500 and rick randall too. im excited. im still shopping for new stuff though.

aaron, i'll give you a call one night next week to setup pick up for the scoot. ive been wanting to get into another project this week. thinking about winter.

anyone seen one of the r32's on the street yet?? the cicadas are out here. started today. they say there could be several hundred thousand per acre. i'll be sure to get pics. it should make summit point quite interesting.

I won't be dicing with you in lw this year joe. hopefully the new owner will be out there on the bike though. get that 160 together for next year and we'll be back at it

I have seen a few r32's. still haven't heard one in person.

I'm not making hawk either but will be at the track friday

230hp in that little car. man, that thing will probably just about kick everythings ass. i wonder how the box is. i didnt know you got rid of the 350. man, i really liked that motorcycle. a very sexy machine. thats too bad dude, i was looking forward to trying to run you down again. at least the last race we had together i have pictures of us. (im in front!!! woohoo!!)

it's rated at 240 and many think that's low. but there's always something faster.

yup, phinney had a buyer and I needed to pay the insurance on my house. it was a good bike, needed more poke but still good. you should have a chance to really beat it now that a new guy will be racing it. send me those pics you got, will ya

fag. i only have the one picture, since i was able to be in front of you for all of about 2 laps before i crashed. a pic in t1 after i chased you down would have been cool though eh? its me, some guy with a bcm ducati stickered helmet on a honda 350, then you, then matt tanner, then steve d'. if i actually never win a race, at least i'll have all of these pictures to brag about when i get old...er.

Yeah its easy to stay in front of someone when your waiting for them in the grass in in turn one. "Wait her comes JD... let's see if I can stay in front of him until turn 2".

Ha, ha - Sorry Joe, I coldn't resist.

meanie, i cant wait. im even excited about making the drive up! mikes such a loser. i cant believe hes not going to be there. are you guys planning on comming down for summit in june then going back up??? were having a party that saturday night. im going to get faster the movie and we'll get the grill going. you guys are all invited and we'll make room for you. then haul up to louden on sunday for the monday race.. whatchya think?? im curious about what the cicade thing is going to be like at summit. it should make things interesting. and any of the guys from the phili/dc area are are welcome. there are even guys on the street here that are invited. so it should be fun.

was it aaron yates who pulled of at vir a few years back after taking the checkered and ran into a spot-a-pot during his cool down lap??

later
