    What I read in a magazine some years back was that when Kenny was the junior member of the Yamaha American roadracing squad, he was asked why he was faster than Gene Romero and Don Castro. He replied with something to the effect that they had better mechanics than him. When pressed for an explanation he told them that his throttle didn't close all the way.

    "Gary's racing this bike today, (then points to bare frame on milk crate) I'm racing that bike tomorrow!" - Bay Area Cycles owner Mark Robinson to Kevin Erion when Kevin came over to tell Mark that the rules didn't allow two riders to use the same bike at an AMA event. Gary won the 1988 Loudon Classic BOTT Modified Production class using a frame borrowed from a street bike, handing Erion his first defeat.

    I think one of the Bostrom's said this: "Every time you crash you set a new limit."

    Paraphrasing a response to a new racer on the beeb a couple of years back,

    He asked " What should I do to get prepared to go racing?"

    Someone's response was something like:

    " Put on all of your gear, gather all your money in a large pile. After setting it on fire, hurl yourself off of a moving 18 wheeler!!"

    How true!

    From the pitlane:
    Alll you need is WD40 and duct tape. If it won't move and it should use the WD40. If it moves and it shouldn't use the duct tape.

    If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
