Always available at BHF. Hey Jordan, I just might come out and watch tomorrow since it's going to be so nice. Not quite ready to ride yet, but hate the thought of missing a track day.

The vintage group are from the ChiVinMoto email list...a few of them race AHRMA vintage road racing...The Big guy on the Honda 750 won Daytona this year in Heavyweight Historic production and is currently in the points lead. They do at least one track day a year...last year they did it a Autobahn, but I get the impression they like Blackhawk better...You're right, they are very cool guys. AHRMA will be having 2 vintage nationals in our area in June...the week after the AMA/DMG race at Road America and the weekend of June 20/21 at Gratten. Alot of the guys you saw at the trackday will be racing those events.

Tom, its all good, I will get to ride all year there!

The fries from Beef a roo were pretty tasty, but the Philly Cheese Steak wasn't the best I have had by any stretch of the imagination. How is the 750 coming along?

Didn't get a chance to meet you guys but it was an awesome day, learned a lot about the track and my bike.
Thanks mikdivad for renting me the power generator, the eu2000 is the way to go. Attached is a quick shot from my pit.
Looking forward to my next track day!
