Hey Racers,
Everybody ready to go?? Did any body go to Shubie or Mid Ohio?? Parker Heath #61 is running at Mid-Ohio. I hope he kicks Butt!!!
I heard from a friend of Aarons that he was interested in running a stock Ducati Monza. That would be a good match against the BSA 250. I raced a stock Monza my first 2 seasons and beat the BSA that was running at the time-#251 Tom Hemeon. Because I'm great!!!!

No Shubie or Mid-Ohio for me. I really wanted to go for 2 reasons. To race the 200gp and to support Parker. I think he'll do very well.

I definately think a stock Monza is competition a BSA 250. Not mine though. In fact I'm looking forward to the August event and putting a stop all this greatness crape.

Aaron,
What did you do? Put a 5 speed and a Ducati top end in it? If not just add some pasta and some real good marinara sauce. If you are waning in the race, I'll wait for you. Just because I'm Nice and I don't want to discourage you from trying.

The Greatest old guy racer.

btw i wear an XXL shoei helmet........

No Italian parts on my bike, nor japanese. I'm a purist... I specifically made a point not to use anything but the finest. It took me a year and a half to find that Rickman rear hub. I hope you get your Honda running for the 200gp so you'll have something to be competitive with next year. Are you going to be running in the 350gp... I'm going to need a confidence booster when I'm up against some of those faster bikes.

Thats right Joe... but looks aren't everything. I appreciate you waiting up for me in the 350gp. I wouldn't be waiting around for me to long when your that close to Mike. Although I'd be cautious of how far you follow Mike in to corners. He might just bring you to the point of no return. You don't have to worry about that with Mr. 250 Champ, he rides like he is a right angle. Although I would too at that age.

the real fear i have is that mike is so crazy, he'll risk crashing just to try and get me to! i will not try to out brake him into a turn. he just scares me too much since i never know what hes doing on there. i dont think i'll be waiting up for you this time. since there are so many people now, hopefully, i'll get drug along with them. but youre deceivingly fast out there. the only way i have of comparing is that i know im way faster then rick, the guy you ran with last time. he usually gets me bored so i take off. youre bike can run great or like crap, so if its running good, i think in the pack, you'll keep up no problem. if we get some air between us, hopefully i'll be able to walk away. ehh....we'll see. you are great fun to race against though. its a real blast to be behind you and watch how you ride. you are super smooth and get over so far. it cracks me up to watch you bounce your knee off of the ground. a real kick.
