Back from Barber

Well we got back from Barber a few hours ago. What a blast. Weather was great and bike was running good. First TD of the year and a little rusty, but late afternoon I go the hang of it. Sunday was better as for my riding. Even took in the museum to see some bikes.

I will post pictures in a second.

Had a great time at Barber. What a way to start off the season excellent track, beautiful weather, and a new track bike. Big thanks to Jon Smail for helping me sort my suspension, Tom Tiernan (turnoneracing.com) for getting me the parts needed to complete my bike, and Peter Drott for the all help and dragging me around the track. Had a wonderful weekend looking forward to this season.

Barber is a wonderful track. Jon and I went there a couple years ago when was about 98 degrees with 90 percent humidity, so lets just say it was hot. Its was a great time though. One of the best tracks out there.

Was there last month with some friends i have in B'ham. Awesome track! Been therethree times for TD's. Love the elevation changes.

What if I told you insane was working fifty hours a week in some office for fifty years at the end of which they tell you to piss off; ending up in some retirement village hoping to die before suffering the indignity of trying to make it to the toilet on time? Wouldn't you consider that to be insane?
