So what class for all us CLSB peeps?

We can't all run one class, because of Brian and his 2-stroke. But most of us can run the supertwins. So shall we make that the class for all of us to race against each other?

We would have:

YZFRob
KBOlsen
Grasshopper
VTR996 (if he gets bold enough to bring the hawk)
Grover
johnny (don't know his screen name yet)
and me.

Then we can also run the LWGP and swap Rob, and Kimmy for Brian.

So what do you say, who's in? May 9th is coming up quick, if I'm going to be going head to head with all you fast people I'm registering early to get a good grid position.

Dave, you should grid at the back, you're the fast one

Nick I told you about smoking that cheap stuff man. Wait until after the first race that Brian absolutely smokes me on that fast little 2-stroke and you'll see first hand I'm slow.

I'll grid in the back though, makes it easier so that I don't hold up the fron runners.

C'mon now, we've got more people on here that are racing May 9th don't we?

Damn dude, you're not going to race on May 8th. I don't think I'm going to run on the 9th because it's Mothers Day. I dont think that'll go over too well taking my mom to a Road Race.

Look man, your mom needs to just understand that you RACE her mothers day gift could be coming to see you race you can pay her gate fees.

I'll be there May 8th but there is only one race that day and that's the GT Lights I think it is, Sunday is Supertwins (Won't be competitive but I'm going to run it just to beat Rob), then LWSS, LWSB, and LightweightGP (Where I'll get my arse kicked by Brian) but I'm gonna try like hell to keep up with him. Hey a man can dream.

My mom's out on the west coast. Advantage is I can call her at 5-ish and it's only 3 out there. Who's got the balls to call their mom from the track..while a race is going on??

Better yet, lets see the turn out of Moms that we can get at the track on Sunday. Mabe we can get all of our moms to be safety workers.

My mom would completely flip her lid if she saw me crash!

Better you than me, my moms still pissed at me because I told her not to let Ethan get too far from her last time she came out. Apparently she just couldn't understand that HELLO there are bikes running around everywhere.

Thankfully Ernie took him for a while which was a releif compared to worrying about my mom keeping an eye on him.

My folks came out to Blackhawk at one of the CCS weekends last summer. They had a great time - Mom was skeptical about my new passion until she got out into the paddock and started meeting my new friends. Now she's a real fan!

Dad died before I could get him up there but he loved hearing about my "adventures" and would share them with all of his buddies down at the general store.

See ya'all in SuperTwins... remember, "LADIES FIRST"!

This is gross... but I heard it at the track:

"You know you're a racer when you can pinch a loaf between second and third call and make it to the grid in time for the warm-up lap".

Dave... I can't wait for Blackhawk. I'm pissed and that weekend will be my redemption time. Oh by the way... I got a great start in LWGP at RA and came around to start off lap 2 in 3rd after starting in the second row. Hopefully I can get a good start at blackhawk too.

Brian, YOU SUCK!! So much for me even trying to catch a glimpse of that 2-Stroke.

Lot's of classes are available, but I was trying to figure out which class the largest number of people can all run in and be somewhat competitive.

Yes, Jim - unless you're running an I-4 litre bike, you can run Heavyweight SuperBike.

I'm pretty sure that heaveyweight is for 750's and that 900 would have to be in unlimited. Plus GP bikes are't aloud in superbike. GTO is the only class everyone can race in.

Then again, supertwins implies you have 2 cylinders. My CBR has 4 cylinders.
