    Man, I'd love to come over. That picture promoting the day...if memory serves me correctly, he ended up flipping the bike over the front bars at the end of the burnout. A little too much front brake after an out of shape burnout. I think that guy is actually the Modified champion from last year.

    I used to race my XR Fairmont for a bit of fun out at AIR in the late 80's early 90's
    Then it closed down for year's.

    So all i'd need to do to my bike is a catch can for the coolant ?


    These pic's are from the comp meet March 24
    This guy i used to see at every street meet racing his bike back in the late 80's early 90's, look's like he's still racing now
    That little 2 stroke goes hard and he still has that same race suit 27 year's later !

    Apparently a friend flipped his Kawasaki too, was his first time out without wheelie bar's i think, not sure why he wasn't running them though
    Guy in the background here

    Yep, I've seen this guy too. I hope the day is a huge success and they schedule another one. I haven't been to AIR since back when Bob owned it.

    Nah, i'm broke atm.
    i put my car on classic/historic club rego 2 week's ago so would have had money if it wasn't for that
    Hopefully next month they'll have the same $50 deal so i'll put some money away for it

    Looks like AIR have monthly test&tune meets, so hopefully they do the $50 bike fee again. HPR is $60 for bikes, so too easy (unless it's super crowded like yesterday!).

    That's great. It's one of the few motorsports where you can keep competing well into your retirement years. And, you don't have to be on a strict diet and spend time at the gym (unless you want to)!

    Well, that is for 2 days. You can test and tune all day Saturday and qualify and race on Sunday. Not too bad really!

    That's too many pennies for me. Half that would be sweet.

    Hard to say no to that. Bikes always have better RT than cars.
