FVOR Rider appreciation play day

Anyone going this Sunday?

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

they get a bit of a crowd as this is the awards for the HS racing, and they do free lunch! , but not too bad and everyone is competent / no one riding in overalls ,, I would go sunday and maybe ride Byron Saturday ,,, I rode Byron last wknd and had a blast, even jumped one of the baby doubles on the big track, hilltop track is fun too

I'm thinking about Byron on Sunday. If a group goes, I'll do that; otherwise I'll ride with Club57 on the turn track. Last Sunday the turn track ruts were brutal. Let's get a group for one more ride before the snow flies.

Take care and ride safe
Brian

Since I'm not expecting any awards, I'm going to head to FVOR Sat and avoid the madness. Might be the last day of the year with temps near 60 as well.

Now remember how much fun we had today so in the future when I ask you to ride, I only have to ask once.

Beautiful day for playing in the dirt.

Great day of riding at Byron yesterday boys!

It was almost like an old SBK2 reunion with all the old SM folks out there. Good to catch up with you guys again. (Too bad Natola had another injury to his nether region that kept him from joining us!)

I'm clearly never going to make it to the ISDE with my 1hr tire change. At least I found the root cause of the problem and ditched the crappy rim strip in exchange for some high end duct tape! Brian, thanks for the assist on the paper towels and lube!

Your welcome Colin; although, I'm not sure I like the way that sounds

Had fun. It was nice to meet a bunch of new guys (new to me). I am still pulling burrs off my jersey after helping Roman. I will let him explain.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian
