I can't make it but have fun. one of the guys who is currently banned was saying he was buying a bike this week and would likely be there Friday afternoon to practice with it, so you may have some company anyway.

Don't worry. When I get a little older and more brittle I'll move on to TMGP.

I would love to see Kib out there, that is one place that maybe I could actually catch him, and he might get a look at my rear end for a change.

I really do still want to. I have a blast on the minis. I'm just spending so much time on the big bike that it's hard to tell the wife I'm going to spend the other weekends at a track too.

yep, I know the feeling.. I was considering buying a 125 or a 250 (aprilia) and the wife asked me when I thought I would get the time to ride it.. .she came up with a better plan, buy a second TMGP bike, set one up for endurance and one for sprints... get more racing in and not tie up more weekends. Smart woman, hard to argue her logic.

I can't get her to give up those 12s on that 100. The ground clearance to the pegs is abysmal as it sits. She just wants to stay in the parking lots racing around cones with it.
