BULLSHIT. IT DOES.
More bad from motorcyclists.

Booking events you can't pay for, taking membership $$ from people when your not sure you'll be around next week, and writing bad checks is just common in business? Tough ??? I don't agree. They knew this was coming and they kept taking. Plain and simple.
i agree!

The Boss don't post too much, but when he does, it's worth the read!

Well-put bossman!

The thing that bugs me the most is that there was no "warning people" of the impending issues; if you did that, you were accused of instigating or poor competition.

Too bad.

I guess this is what everyones been waiting for, a chance to throw someone under the bus and hop on the next band wagon. I agree it sucks to go out of buisness but it happens to big companies too. Claim your losses on your income taxes or get in line for scraps left over after the lawyers divi things up.

I don;t think there is a need to warn people or post up certain peoples contact info as some kind way to gain favor or vigilantism. These guys at brought us more track days and I don't think they would have started out if they did'nt think it would work or if it would end up like this. Good buisness makes good friends, bad buisness does the opposite; and every buisness transactoin I had with them went well. I paid them money for time on the track and they brought more opportunities to ride to the area. If things did'nt go so well behind the sceens that was between them and whoever else, its not for me to be preview to and certainly not worth selling someone who I have had good buisness with out over.

They deff made some money somewhere, if they were not paying the tracks where was all of our money going? In there pockets. I do not see how everyone keeps saying they were not making money and could not afford to stay around.

, $9000 is a hard hit.
Came into town like a Gypsy caravan and cleaned everyone out.


Sucks that the orgs that do business the right way will likely be the ones who are punished.

I can assure you, we knew nothing of their financial status or their poor standings with the tracks. As the end neared, we became more aware that things were foul, but had no idea what was coming, or how bad off they were.

Although I am proud of the friendships I a made there, and in the efforts I put in, I will say I am ashamed and embarrassed of what's become.

I really hope that M&M make things straight with all of you guys.

I didn't say differently...

Perhaps you meant to quote someone else? Or is it something else... guiltly conscience?

Not accusing, just saying.

These gypsy type used to roll into this poker house I played at. They all drove nice cars, had a ton of money (or it aleast it appeared that way, I think they were into CC fraud), would try to bully you out of pots...all flashy and .

They always lost.

If soo, we can probably all look forward to more expensive track days and less flexible schedules in the future.
