Who's going in what class this weekend at BHF?

Just wanted to see who is definitely going to Blackhawk this weekend and what class you're riding in. Hopefully, if I get to know a few of you, I won't be a stranger if I show up at Strats.

I run in the Intermediate group (although as far as CLSB is concerned, I'm still just a scarf wearing Vespa rider).

So who's running in what group?

Tom.

No shock here..

Beginner. Most people on the board will be in this group. Aside from Jim and Jeff, almost everybody else on the board is still in that group.

I'm sure a couple people are ready for intermediate in the near future though!

Hiya Tom! How is the ankle doing???

I won't be at BHF this weekend....Getting ready to do Grattan next week!!!!!!WOOHOOO!

I usually run Intermediate but I'm dying to run advanced....much cleaner riding and no jerks on Gix1K's to blow my 52hp hawk away ;-) jk jk

Q: Do you still miss the 500cc two-strokes?

A: Always, yes.

Hey, Mark. I was wondering what happened to you. You got that great track bike, then I never see you at the track anymore. Grattan should be fun, but can't go on a work day. It's a great track, especially for a bike like yours. Man, I wish I was going with you.

Took the cast off last week, so the ankle is still kinda sore. I have a couple friends giving me sh*t for not moving up to Advanced, but until this foot heals, I think I'll just hang in Intermediate and maybe meet some CLSB guys. (And blow away guys on little Honda Hawks ).

Nesba has a weekend at Putnam Park next month. If you've never been, it's by far my favorite track and I encourage you to try to go for at least one day.

Grover, I'll try to be on the lookout for you. If you need anything, I usually have extra gas, etc.

See you later, Tom.

Speaking of avatars, mine needs updating. The gixxer now has all white race body work. ($550.00 through Nesba, can't beat it). Look forward to seeing you Sunday.

Awesome!!!!

The RC isn't actually broken in until it's seen a racetrack. Just like a Gixxer or a R6.

Hey, Jim. You surprised me. Big guys aren't supposed to go that fast. I think it's written somewhere in the Nesba by-laws. So knock it off.

See you at Putnam. I'll get the first round of beers.
