I must say I was taken aback by your comments to me after the races. You have a winners attitude and I did not expect such a response from you. This vintage racing stuff is supposed to be fun. May I suggest you take it all in stride and enjoy the essence that it was meant to be.
hey aaron, you shouldn't retire the bsa. what you should do is keep working on it. i agree with john here. you know i always have the fun mentality. take it easy, ride the thing. work on it. and remember, have fun. you have the rule book memorized, the 1st paragraph says, have fun! the bsa is too cool and i know everyone loves seeing it. its a beautiful little bike. i for season after season hauled all of my shit up there, 8+ hours one way for my bike to run like crap. imagine how frustrating that was. hang in there man, take it easy, mellow out, get your honda running and have fun.
i know you were pissed off at me too. i dont know what you wanted me to say. then you just split. i'll forgive you though. because i love you man.
jeremy, youre catching up to me.
turns 3 (2x), 2 (2x), and 12 (1x)
anxiously waiting for august
My rule book doesn't say that. And if I try to run it more it will mean that I've to keep working on it. I have a great idea why don't you put push rods in your Honda. There are a lot of pretty bikes out there, the only reason why they like mine is cause they have more time to look at it.
theres a reason why hondas dont have pushrods. and its the same reason i race a honda. you knew what you were getting yourself into. it's always easy to give up and youve developed that bike so much it'd be a shame to see it die. belive me, once you get the 175 reliable, you'll be back poking your nose around the bsa anyway. the japanese stuff really takes a beating as you know. pretty reliable if not way overbuilt and fun fun fun. i always think about starting something else, and really do it up nice. 500 triumph or something of the sort. but they are too much work for me. i most definitely do not have the attention span. being stuck in a boring 350 honda is a blessing and a curse ya know. man i swear i reved that thing past the tach readings at gunstock trying to gp shift. and i was still able to pull past other hondas on the strait at louden. sometimes so quickly i felt like i was cheating.
