Awesome pics! I got air like that one time. Hit a wheelbarrow on 59 on my V-Max and somehow rode it out! I donít think I held form as well as those guys though, my nads were aching afterwards.

My guess would be 2nd (maybe lugging 3rd) gear. I'm not sure but they are haulin .

Yes sir, someone usually post a few days prior in the events/meets section.
Sorry about the heat, it should start cooling down nicely in a month or two.

He noticed a little dandruff or something on his left shoulder there. He’s thinking about brushing it off since he’s not busy at the moment.

Yessir...an NC30. Neat bike a bit heavy. Loved the V4. Road several as me mate was a Honda dealer so I got the use (for days at a time sometimes) of demo bikes.

I got to ride a ton of bikes nobody knows much about stateside...like RGV250, CBR400RR both tri-arm & gull-arm versions (probably one of my favorite bikes of all time!), GSXR400, the ZXR400RR and KR1S.

I had so much fun over there. I will be back again...probably for good.

I haven't even gotten into all the GPs and WSB races. Most yanks don't know what they are missing.

you should come out to the track in angleton on the 7th. That is probably the closest track for you to come watch.
