weather was awful, everyone is complaining. 12:30 pm and the sun is coming out in Portland.

TT crashed in T2 in practice, he's ok, hi -sided and lo sided at the same time. Bike is back in working order. Casper smoked two cigars last night, Paula is hanging out.

Branson and Champ are chatting it up. Champ has a new in crate MT 125 that he brought to the track

Raining this am, I am going back tomorrow morning for races. Photos of the mosh pit later. Bring more wood for tonite.

JB, the 500 ran GREAT, but I let Camelhairy pass me on the 5th lap on his stinking 175 and I never got back to him, so came in 4th as Flach blew his motor or something. BUt it was great fun.

I Came in 5th in LWSV, that MT is GREAT. It's gonna be my "primary" bike. It hooks up in the rain, and is a blast to ride in that class. I was able to follow the line we're all supposed to take. A honda took 1st, I think Strempy was 2nd, Baker was thrid, and Jeff Marcoux had just passed me and we were playing around when we got a red flag for the chick in the bowl down, i think on lap 5 or 6. I also came in 6th in middle weight production on the SR500, which for me was an awesome place.

BAKER (Jaguar) got FIRST PLACE in cb350. He was stormin. I told him he won because his bike was dry in the garages all weekend. No more camping for him.

Aaron had some good times with camelhairy, of course, and his bike seemed to be OK for the day despite whatever it was was wrong . . . maybe he spent 6 hours on the bike just wantiing us to "think" something was wrong with it . . . interesting strategy . . . . .

Wankers did good, Rosko's first racing, Casper's and TT's bikes were a little out of tune, maybe, who knows.

Rained. Rained. But we all went out . . . and some of us crashed. Mike Elliot called it a day sun am, after he crashed in practice.

Matt Camelhairy (CHEATER) is getting faster and faster . . . somehow. That turd brown bike is stupid fast. He got two first's, I think.

JB is now officially a wanker . . . but a real wanker . . . cause he didn't wanna go out in the rain . . . ooooh, I might get wet . . .. .

sorry jb had to do it.

yeah, champ, the ulsv looked like a funtime . . . I'm going to enter it on the MT next time regardless of the fact that it's illegal . . . too much fun to miss.
aron, good to have you here, and a great vid, especially almost mixing it up with batman.
hey take it easy on me it was my first race on the mt and just getting off the line is a bitch.
Why do guys always hold their beers like it was something else?

And what is Aaron trying to decide?
