Post: Independence Day Weekend Pictures!

Finally got some pics up from this past weekend. Nothing too fancy but everyone like's pictures of them at the track. There's a smattering of all groups, in no particular order, from both days.

FULL ALBUM - BHF JULY 4 WEEKEND







Peter killin' it in the bus stop.


Someone isn't drinking all their beer.


Track walk...this helped a lot for the Sunday sessions.


Myself and Nolan in one of the afternoon Sunday sessions. One of the best sessions evAr! Thanks Nolan!


Another infamous 2-UP picture.


It helps if you can keep you're feet on the pegs.


And last but not least...

Jordan must have been worn out.

You were riding well out there. Look forward to seeing you next time.

One of these days, I need to put some faces to these screen names. I was standing there watching the beer shotgunning, and had no idea who anyone was.

LOL. You'd think figuring out who the girls are would be so easy... but, I'm not Alexa/Spyder Leatherworks.

Thanks! I was enjoying myself immensely especially on Sunday. What a f'ing blast! I was sad to leave. Btw, I'm the second one from the left in the shotgunning pic.

True..you got me there. When I first met you, a few year ago, didn't you have a lot "bigger" hair? Maybe that's why I didn't recognize you. It was good meeting you though. See ya next time.

I got pretty familiar with the sticker under your tail. You were much better in traffic than I was and every time I'd see the DK come around me I went "doh! he got me again!" Great riding this weekend!

Yes, about 2' worth of more hair, and a size bigger helmet to fit the giant wool sweater in.

Yeah I was loving it. I keep saying it but I don't know what the hell took me so long. Something just totally clicked this weekend. It was actually fun being in some traffic. What bike were you riding? Do you see any pictures of yourself in the album?

I remember you and Nolan passing me in traffic, and I was going to chase and try to hang with you guys but the session got red flagged. I'm behind you in one of the shots - white/orange/blue 600RR #33.

No idea. As far as I know they only offer CD's during the event. I'm sure someone on here has a contact for him to find out if he has any pics still.

Wait a few days and the pics will be online on both sites... you can still order from them.

Germany looks like he was carrying the bike around the track like a chick carries a baby on her hip.

I love you, Stefan. You are so damn funny.
