Is it true Suzuki (Japan) has new leadership and they are more open/interested in racing? I hope this is the case.

Reply to First race you ever attended or raced 7/30/2020 8:11 AM

First attended was 1985 High Point. I got a new KX60 for Christmas that year and my first race was 1986 at Pyramid Valley in Lost Creek, WV.

I'd get all those parts stripped completely. Not only do you not want it inside the parts, but the quality of the job looks terrible IMO. The finish on them is terrible... orange peel anyone? You should not have to pay for that shoddy work.

DC has already said it will be different IIRC.

Reply to Alternates for Loretta’s 7/24/2020 2:26 PM

I got in as an alternate once in one class. That was my first experience at LL. I also gave up 2 spots last minute one year when my broken foot wasn't quite ready after having the cast removed the week before. There is something to be said for going ... more »

Well, it was about that time that I noticed that he was about 8 stories tall and a crustacean from the protozoic era...

Reply to Keep Weeknight Racing? 6/24/2020 2:01 PM

Move arenacross to Wednesday nights. Made for TV, prime time racing. Run events within a regional distance to the SX events. Would allow for privateers to run both series and potentially score some cash. Maybe use weekday AX events as qualifiers for ... more »

Some of these teams are going to have to go to 3 or 4 guys or there will be several "top" guys without a ride next season. Maybe Yamaha goes with DF, JB, and AP? Kawi and Honda could also expand to 3. If Barcia puts in a solid outdoor season, he will ... more »

Put JB back on a Honda. He'd be good at Motoconcepts I think.

Reply to Now this is a track! 6/21/2020 7:04 PM

I thought the racing at all SLC rounds was pretty good which tells me overall the SLC tracks were pretty good.

Steel City BBQ sandwich. It was nothing more than deli ham in sweet BBQ sauce from a crockpot on white bread but damn was it good. I'll second the Burgers at Dade City as well.

Reply to As Emig would say.... 6/17/2020 7:31 PM

So, does Kawi find a way to get a couple Kawi guys to ensure Tomac finishes no worse than 18th?

I felt like Coop sorta lucked in to his championship last year... he has proven me wrong. Dude is the real deal.
