I'm heading up to RA this coming weekend for the AMA races with $1100 worth of new camera and lens... Hope I catch some nice pics (although not as painful) I don't believe in reading manuals normally but I think I should make an exception just this once.

Namaste

Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

Nice to see people following the number one rule of trackdays. If you're going to crash, make sure there are cameras around!!

Backstory on the rider and circumstance? Or is this a new stunt that I'm unfamiliar with?

Keep an eye on the NESBA Midwest board over the next week or so. MattG was there taking pictures for free download (the site he uses does charge to do prints and whatnot, but he doesn't get any of that), Gron4 was there with their professional gear and experience, and then there was MoparBoyeeee. Gron4 will not get pics sorted completely up 'till after the AMA round (at least that's what I understand), Matt will be a couple days, depending on whether he sorts to number or just to group, and, well, Mopar's being lazy today
