I gave him a clean and free trip up. He can't get off work now. I did everything but try to kidnap him. He carries a gun, so I'm not going to try that.

You have till about 3:00 am Wednesday to change your mind Dean.


Oh yea.... I'm IN!

66 and sunny! Gonna be a great day.

You guys suck. I have to work. K3 was rubbing it in my face last night when he stopped over for a couple beers. Someone make sure and crowd him on the race track, make sure to give him absolutely no room into every corner.

By the way. How is the track condition this year at BHF? I haven't been there since last fall when I crashed the shit out of my bike chasing Paul James in the rain on a 5 year old set of rain tires. DURRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!
