Kind of funny story...

So, my last session I wanted to ride a wheelie, I was the only one out there. So after diamonds egde, I clutch it up. By the time I got to the paddocks, some old dude walked up and starts giving me ! He says it aint cool unless you are draggin knee, then wheeling as you come out, then ride it over the curb, down the front straight and set it down just before turn in!"

Then the other guy comes and starting owning me.

Then here comes larry riding a wheelie on his bicycle, with me. All the while Curt is laughing at me for being puit in my place.

I was emabarassed and apologized. I wont do it again.

This goes on for 3 or 4 minutes... then another guy pulls up and what does he say??? "Heck, I thought the lady was out there on the bike...." They weren't seriously upset, but they both made their point and it was damned funny.

Total pwnage.
