I think I have a bad head gasket on my Yammi Sumo. Had issues with it yesterday while I was at the track. So it looks like I am done riding it for the rest of the year.

Could not have asked for a better day - Sunny and 70 - Great Bunch ah Fucks to rip with - Never more than maybe 8 bikes on the track at once - Usually like 4 at any time - Not to mention the surprise visit of a 3 time AMA Supermoto Champ and X Games Winner, Mark Burkhart on one if Mitch's bikes - Husaberg 570 with, oh, $18K WP 52mm Forks - My lord the bike was a beauty and fuck me that guy is fast - Passed me up the hill going into the chicane like I was going backwards - Cool guy too

Thx for the lift Equalz and if was fun riding with ya - I enjoy your bike with wrong gearing as I can FINALLY pass you - Please leave it the way it is

Made me remember why I love Sumo all over again - When the bike runs like it did today and the Sun is shining and Tnat is running his mouth, it just makes it for me

+1 to that - i was excited, due to the fact that

1. Beautiful day to ride sumo
2. My Oldest son was with me - hangin with the fellas
3. Bike was runnign great
4. this boot camp shit im doing is obviously working as i pounded hard lap after lap and didnt even get tired or out of breath.
5. got to meet Burkhart, ride on the same asphalt as the man and chase him - Supermoto god # 2 - Jeff Ward is # 1!
6. Finally got to hang with the fellas as its been a while and riminds me of the fall days at Norway with the other fellas!

It was a great day guys!

I don't think he is doing much at all other than living in Iowa

Roman: - "Still riding SM"
MB - "Ah, not really"
Roman - "Still riding Dirt"
MB - "Ah, no, not really riding at all"

Said he had not been on a Sumo in almost 2 years - He IS going to Mettet though and leaves Wed I think

I like this track too - Funny when the Euros add wacky music (now stuck in my head) and what they call "woops"

They are a riot and when a day like yesterday goes down, it is even more fun - Like any other track day when all goes well, just less crowded, less money, all the track time you can handle and an AMA Sanctioned Track to ride on

Looks like a good time guys! Sorry I couldn't make it once again. Next year is gonna be my year!


I will be going to Byron on the 16th. Roman are you going to be there too?

Tony, are you going to be running Vet, or did your recent birthday bump you up into the Super-Vet class?
