sorry I was being a but here is something straight out of the TTBC website to clean up my douchness

This camp is where you will learn the fundamentals that will transfer to any motorcycle...dirt or street. We use Yamaha TTR 110s, 125s and 230s with semi slick rear tires on clay tracks. This alone will help you with balance, body position, where your eyes should be looking, and most important of all - feel. My instructors and I have done exactly this for years and I wouldn’t be where I am today without this experience. For those of you out there saying '110s and 125s and 230s? What can riding a kid’s bike teach me about going faster on my 450F or 1000 Twin?’ Well, I make my living going 200mph on some of the fastest and most exotic bikes known to mankind, and I'm telling you that I honed my skills and built my fundamentals riding small bikes on dirt tracks right here in Texas. Everything we will teach you here at the Texas Tornado Boot Camp will translate directly to whatever bike you are riding today, or plan to throw a leg over in the future! So what are you waitin' for? Pick a date and sign up today...I promise you won't be disappointed!”

Longdraw and I will be caging it there Saturday evening. There is a liquor store down the road from the camp too. Anyone from cypress area want to come with us just post it here.

I will take along a pair of bicycling padded shorts and a stay dry tee. They even provide clean riding socks. Their gear is inspected and cleaned at the end of the day...

Aren't you getting this free for doing all the "leg work"? So you should be able to pay for at least one person right?

There is a reason why Jimmy and I and all others who have done it before, can't wait to do it again. I bought an RM 250 immediately after doing my first bootcamp. It is a crazy addiction.

1. You can come back on Sunday evening. This is pretty much done by around 5pm, and you can leave anytime anyways.

2. I don't know if you can get up the next day to hit the track again. You'll be beat, i mean barely crawling on your knees beat!

3. Jimmy, you don't know what you got yourself into. This guy Umayr is a total track junkie who would sell his for a TD. So, expect him to say no when you ask if he liked it.

I was already prepared for that... He knows not to lie to me.. I'll make his life a living for that...
