Just received the next issue of Road Racing World magazine. Cool write up about differences in track day versus race day mentality. Congrats again Marshall!

You've got a new career in motojournalism if you want it. Really, you've got a good flair to your writing. It's the most entertaining article in the whole rag. I'm going to write in and tell them so.

Thanks a lot guys! I really appreciate the positive feedback. I'm hoping people will write in to Roadracing World and tell them the same kind of thing. It would be awesome to get the opportunity to write and ride, but only time will tell.

I just wish my copy would get here!!!

Thanks again, glad y'all are digging it.

Is it Spring yet?

Marshall, if you'll hop on a plane and come out to Vegas today, I'll buy you a beer tonight to celebrate!

Darn. I don't think my subscription was processed yet. I'll have to go buy it. Yes Marshall. I only got a subscription after reading your first article. Now I cant miss any and bought a subscription.

For anyone else that isn't a subscriber. Go get your Nesba 2006 handbook. There is a handy coupon in there!

I did the same thing!

Great writing Marshall, your article is by far the most interesting part of that magazine. Kudos.

OK, "kicked off" may be a slight exaggeration. We were looked upon with extreme disapproval and reprimanded for, as the flight attendant called it, "swearing so loud I can hear you six rows up".

DISCLAIMER: TheGrouch maintains his innocense in the above altercation. "I plead da fif, bish".

Why can I see this happening? I guess somebody forgot that long drive from Atlanta last year!

I can neither confirm, nor deny, the existence of any such activities. And in the words of many a famous politician, "I don't recall."

So much for the friendly skies.

I haven't got my subscription processed yet. So I had to have my courier pickup a copy for me. I just read it and already can't wait for the next issue. Thanks for keeping me excited till the riding season arrives!

"like a chainsaw through a watermelon" I'm outta here.
