NWGP Round 7 - RA - Sat 9/8

Who's in for Sat Races with NWGP? - Anyone doing SBK2 on Sunday too?

Looks like I am running a solo shot up and pitting with Ryan from NWGP for Gennie Access to run the warmers

S'up Nukkas?

have not made a firm plan yet, might do both days, 450 mx bike is apart for susp work, 250f is feelin a bit tired last 2 times out, time to check valves, so sumo may be my best option, is sbk2 the sunday club? camp overnight? whats with the pitbike rules? are they strict about that? million dollar liability? who carries that on a pitbike?

My Lord - Do you guys ask all these kind of silly questions before you drop your pants and take a shit too?







j/k tittays - Pitbikes are fine - Not sure about camping as that to me is a 1 story motor lodge WITHOUT HBO

you can camp overnight but you have to pay for the vintage car admission and camping fee. come ride on sunday - race - youve got your options as for SBK2 classes - vet 35+, 450SM, Open they all run the dirt section - im racing all 3 so that means 6 races for me, lots of track time - Northwoods youll only get 2 races.

Looks like FP1 starts @ 9a which puts us on track about 10a - Leaving the City @ 6a and meeting Ryan in Mil to caravan up - Should be there by 8:30a

Sunny and 70 tomorrow ladies - Should be nice

Tnat, I have no where to put the tires as Roman is not home for storage - I can send you the $$ if you need it

Great band Bro - Been in a Joy Division state of mind lately which of course led to the OTHER Cocks ie The Buzzcocks and of course, just like Ferris Buehller, "Cabaret Voltaire"

Vid of #3 Mike Harlow. He got some great footage from race 2. More imortantly he get alot fo footage of me at the 5 min mark on. LOL I pitted with Mike and his dad and had a blast as usual. I am glad he flipped the camera around for race 2 because race one I was on his as and lost to him by a half a bike length.


This weekend was great weather and I was having a blast with everyone. I only had 1 issue and it was my front tire. I have been slacking on swapping it out as it has a whole season on it and is sliding out ever corner. It bit me in the ass this weekend and it showed. I think I had 2 4th place finishes. Could have easily been fighting for a top 2.


I felt the front slipping out during practice and I wanted to test and see how far it can go. Well I did just that LOL In a slow left hander I lost the front and lowsided. Me and the bike only slid about 20 feet the bike causght and rolled 1/2 a turn and landed, no damage what so ever which i love with these motards. This pic is from Ryans go pro as he causght it on video as he passed me. We were all laughing and the announcer I guess wouldn't shut up about it he was so amazed what happend. All in all a great time as usual!!!!!!!!!!





Its amazing what adrenaline can do as I was so busted up from last weeks ordeal and could barley walk and get on the bike but once that flag dropped it was all business.

I shoulda stayed home! Woke up at 230am to piss and never got back to sleep - got there late - mounted too hard of a new rear michlin 22 on the rear and the front was i thought still good was toast - both sliding everywhere - fuckin qualified like 17th with a 1:28 best - by race time got it down to 1:20 range but every other corner was washin the front and slidin the rear - i coulda spent that $300 or so dollars on new slicks for next season! I hope glenn keeps SBK2 going but all we had was like 21 riders total so they combined all the classes for 2-12 lap races and one 6 lap sprint. oh well!

21 is better than the 13 we had girding up and that included a few of the little 2t minis that run faster times than 1/2 the big bikes

13? that sucks even worse - I shoulda taken pictures of the whole Farm and fleet trac area- camping and we could send it to Obamas and Romneys campaign and tell them their full of shit that were better off now than 4 years ago as you know very well that we had full camping area - bigger grids - this was a ghost town for both sumo and car racers and campers

Yep - Konitzer did not race due to $$ as he puts his kids racing before his own - Zac was back at school with no $ - Roman was out - I was out after (3) laps in R1 (no upper body strength form being laid up for 2 months) and we had NO ONE for SBK2 running with us either
