I had fun in TMGP unltill I was rubbed the wrong way. I just let someone get on my nerves and I just stoped having fun. He was old so he will be dead soon and i might give it another go out there.
I am allowed to ride as hard as I want and that makes it fun for me.

Ground clearance to pegs.


Most importantly she doesn't seem to want to get out there and race.

that IS the important part, it is supposed to be fun.
Currently there are 3 women racing, at least that I remember. They race in all the regular races and they do have 1 ladies only race.

Gabriel is always fun to ride with.


Even if he catches you later on in the day to tell you he hates you.

well dang, I never knew there was so much tension in the undertow...

every event I've done since like '06 or something it seemed that everyone had a good time and got along...

but I'm quiet and stick to myself for the most part.

Yeah, it must be lonely at the front of the pack.

You need to hang around with me more, Mike. We can still goof off at the front together, but you'll go home with a lot more drama.

Well there is one Mr. Cooley who is giving me fits and I did chunk my bike at the scenery in Denton so I'm not always alone

Hey Linz are you taking pics at the all girls boot camp this weekend? I hope they properly restrain Joe P; I can't see a good outcome with that - kinda like fighting fire with gasoline. BTW Joe has a new nickname, Backyard Sweeper but you gotta get the story from himů

you are quiet, but you do speak when spoken to...
you would seem more social if you would at least wave at all those behind you once in awhile.

>>>Tell him I said hey. Ask him to give me KTM parts for Pikes.

>>>I will be there. Raynie made get some seat time in, but she's been sick lately, so she's probably going to do golf cart duty. I'll keep an eye on Joe (as if I can ) and I'll definitely get the story from him. Come over at the end of day, brotha!

Thanks for the invite but I've got a really busy schedule and won't be able to make it. Bummer about Rainey hope she gets feeling better.

Obed - I don't want to come across as pompas so I just focus on the job at hand but as long as it doesn't offend I might in the future!

man no body is going to think you are a POMPASS...I wave on a regular basis, of course in my case I am waving at the guys pulling away from me. after a few more races, getting the experience and learning the bike, I will put the kit in it and modify the brakes and suspension, then I might not have to wave.

yep, hoping for a good turn out too...I expect it will be good... in Denton a huge number of the guys were from here, so with those and all the folks who could not make Denton it should be good....
don't feel bad about not seeing me, when I walked in, I walked right past you over to the parts counter and then looked back and saw you....I know that there are a couple of guys coming from San Antonio and Austin, and i expect a couple of new guys too... one or two CMRA guys coming to check it out. I would not be surprised to pick up a few more riders before the end of the year..
i am hoping to see a few more endurance teams start up giving more guys a chance to ride and get the feeling for it, then they will get bikes and we can see more in the sprints too.
