Back yard, handler bar banging, country boy motorcycle racing.

Check out stevenaceracing.com.

I'm sure there are some 12-15 year olds (that aren't all boys) that will show you how to ride a motorcycle.

By the way, you will need a four stroke, set up with 19s, and the correct suspension to even be close to competitive. It's just like road racing, but a totally different style of riding. You will have to use the other side of your brain ride a flat track bike.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Obviously. The board wouldn't let me log in and it took A WHILE to receive the email confirmation of my email change.
