Congrats Clayton!

Something needs to be fgured out with management about the picture situation. Not only is it just plain cool to have pics taken at the track in turns etc... but they are a great learning tool as well.

Irish's 1000rr was having issues keeping up with me coming outa the corners. but its my ENTRY SPEED that i REALLY need to work on.

young, you only got it while you have it. Fearless, ... i just think i've had to many concussions to know any better hit your head hard enough and fear disappears
