With Great Pleasure...look inside

With great pleasure i’m announcing our new venture “Team Geriatric Racing”

I’ve given many minutes of thought selecting my pit crew.

Jonathan (Ducdodgers) Sawyer will be helping me prepare the bike (though he doesnt know it yet and will probably be doing all the work).

I have an unlimited budget of $2K to prepare the bike with the best used Ebay parts we can find.

I will be doing all the track days i can. Every waking moment will be spent watching videos and reading books on racing to hone my skills. All of this will be done for 1 purpose and 1 purpose only.

“TO BE THE FIRST MAN OVER 60 AND 200+ LBS. TO QUALIFY AND WIN A MOTOGP RACE ON A 16 YEAR OLD GIXXER 600”

Your prayers and encouragement are needed to help me achieve this goal. Probably more prayers than encouragement since i’m thinking is the only one that can make this happen.

2k should be plenty. Suspension, brakes, brake lines, likely want to replace the chain and buy extra sprockets, and stickers. lots of go fast stickers. Tires are part of running costs and should be omitted from initial budget. If better half doesn't agree with this. Too bad, It is what it is.
Fun bike. Enjoy.

Keith's better half supports this type of addiction... If his hallway wasn't so narrow, the bikes would be in his bedroom so he could sleep better, knowing they are in eye sight... he'd probably surround the bed with all the bikes and buy a little 50cc to ride it to the restroom in the middle of the night
