Hastings ROCKS

It is a long trip, but it is a very fun experience. The track owner is ... I can't explain George. I am guessing it would sort-of be like Wink owning his own track and bringing his margarita machine with him. There are go cart races tentatively scheduled for saturday night, after the next Nesba day. They don't have drink holders yet, so you have to hold your own beverage

oh the track is FUN, but it takes a while to figure out which way and where things go.

I played with my gopro and got a few neat videos.
this is sorta cool looking back at me.

Thanks Brian. Too bad there is not one corner on that track that I can say I have dialed in. For riding pretty badly, I still had fun. Next time I may actually go fast or do a better job faking it.

I am pretty sure a TZ 250 would go very well at hastings(me want TZ)
