Just Like Me @ WIR

This Vid @ 4:38 in reminds me of when I use to make easy work of Roman and Tnat out at the old Waterman Indoor Raceway when we rode the Dirty Dirty indoors over the winter - I miss that emphysema inducer and crashing Mopar's old 250 with no front brake

Man I miss making passes like this - Me on a clapped out 250 and the above 2 mentioned cock knockers on all done up 450s

God I love these vids - Cannot imagine gridding up like that

Do you ever talk about the "one that got away"? - Of course not, too painful

i sure miss our "locker" at WIR you know the one where we would get naked and moan alot after riding? The moaning was from being to exhausted and couldnt get my gear off as every muscle was fucking drained of energy and a sweaty mess and gear that was stuck to me like load on the floor of the admirals jerkoff booths!. that was the hook up, after work just drive the car and have my gear and bike there and rip for 2 hrs get my fix in all winter 2x per week! long live WIR!

I agree with most of this - I binned it a few times out there and rang the bell enough for my entire body to hurt - I just abused Mopar's 250 - Never road the KX out there but joe did I think.

I remember my lungs feeling like a coal miners after breathing in all that exhaust

Awesome

I hope you didn't ride the KX out there. When I bought it, you said it was never down.

Hahahaha - Joe rode the KX there (or at least stored it in the locker there) and by the time I got it, it was spring and we ripped FVOR and Cerk's Fav Rocky Glen - I also set records on it out at KI - When the snow began to fall on me and mean green, WIR had closed for business
