Highlands MX was one of the few local tracks to give the MX ATV guys a place to practice. . .I miss those Wednesday nights under the lights.

V, when you decide to go out there and run one, let me know. I'd love to try it out....just not on a TMGP bike.

Awwww come on man!

I will be riding an F7 bike and I've heard from several sources that it is NOT a horsepower track. That being said I'm still not dreaming of a top finish but rather just have a little slideways fun.

Come on out - we can have our own little race at the back of the pack

Cliff, a TMGP setup will do better than an MX setup IMO. You guys come out and I'll help pit for ya.

17's with a rear rain tire and since I do not have a front rain tire - prolly gonna roll with a street tread up front, and I'll carry my stock 19 with a different tire selection so I have another option for the front. I know the rains will work but don't really want to spend any money. The track will get blue groove hard by the end of the day - if what I've been told is right, you know how racers are

No kidding. He'll be there, you know he will.

I'm working on my POS now. but it's looking less than ideal for me this weekend. Too much to do, not enough time. But maybe by next weekend I will have a little more of chit in gear. Chain, flywheel, maybe a massaged head, pipe. One more horse than I have now, which means I can blame me for getting smoked, instead of saying, "Oh man, my stocker bike is so lame," I can say, "I suck."
