Old timer checking in

Hello all, just found the forum.

My name is Eric and I've been in Houston area for a long time. I retired full time racing in the CMRA in 2001 with two expert championships (GT lights and LW sportsman - 50hp Laverda) and one novice championship in 2000 (Supertwins, on a SV650). I've done some mini endurance with a friend on and off, but I may try to get a little more serious in a year or so. I've also raced many liter bikes and middleweight 600s in sprints and endurance - too many to list here. I also used to be an instructor for LSTD for about 3-4 years.

Anyway, with my youngest daughter now a little over 2 years old I'm getting some time to ride here and there. I mostly just hit the dragstrip (low 10s, I'm not interested in stretchnig this thing out) and did 195mph at the last Texas Mile. My 2003 GSXR1000 is silver and is basically a KWS stage 2 bike (cams/ported head) - nothing fancy.

I hope to see some of you around.
