Hey Turbobusa, your bike ready yet?

Its not hard to get a high enough Lic. to run at RT66. Getting the gloves okay'ed are harder.

I got the papers for a physical.

When I was at rt66 the other day I asked them about the requirements to run faster than 125 and they gave me the forms for the doctor exam.I still am thinking seriously about doing it because it's so close and I don't have a trailer to go to the more distant tracks.We'll se what happens,but first the bike has to be finished.

Dan, Go fill out the form and do it!!
And you need a tether line on your bike. Its even more worth it to you with a turbo, you don't need to be make a bunch of runs. Your pipe will be glowing, and your clutch will turn to dust.

Rt66

There are many reasons why people have gotten away from Rt66. The tech inspection is one of them. So many requirements, and just when you meet them all they add some more.
I'm working on it though. Bought a chain guard, just got leather paints, and I need to have my tether installed. I swear though when I go faster than 125+ on that track if they hand me some forms for my doc. to fill out they are getting shoved up somebodys ass!

DID I LOG ONTO CLSB OR TMZ.COM WTF???
