I had 3 daughters between 2015 and 2019.....
Just too old. Freaking 70.
Yep, this is how I'm feeling right now. I have bikes in the garage and even a sponsor shop that will fix them up for me, I just don't have the desire. But I'm still holding on to two transponders just in case I get the urge again. If I sell them, I know I'm officially done.
Got bit by the LD bug.
My leathers don’t fit anymore
This thread really doesn't apply to me anymore ......Dam that felt good to say!!.....Just get yer dead-arses back out there ya lazy facks!!! I dont take it as serious as I used to, I'm slowing down in more ways than 1, but its fun! I'm smart enough to stay out of the way, but run mid-pack.
9 yrs off, but with a ride here and there. It feels good to be "Back".
I bought back one of my old bikes over the winter. It feels really good to be back in the pits. I plan to hit a couple tracks I've never been to this year (Grattan, maybe Blackhawk, going to Sturgis and Montana from there)....I started off with a couple "old reliable" tracks this year, Roebling and CMP.
I'm equipped better, and not on such a tight budget as I used to be, that helps (more relaxed), which makes it fun. My expectations are lower
I'm planning to retire at 60 in January 2022. I need to figure out healthcare, but it could be a good year. I plan to go out west if it works out.....I'd love to do Road America, we shall see how that plays out.....Mid Ohio is on the list.....Laguna / Willow.
I guess documenting excuses could help with drive , but biggest thing for me was "Just frikkin relax"!!!!!
Unloading at this point HURTS !!
I'll let you ride your old 300 anytime you like!
Now I have the perfect job for racing weekends... but cant go solo. Though I have a friend out west that has gotten bit by the racing bug so I might be able to do some AFM or CVMA rounds soon. That might parlay into some SE wera rounds.
I blew my back out at Roebling last weekend. I was scrubbing in a new set of tires in the first practice, came back to the pit and did it when I was getting off of the bike. I laid down in the trailer and stretched, went back out in the second session, but could only do four laps before everything started locking up. I got lucky with the guys I was pitted across from. They helped me load up - I can't remember their names, but I'm pretty sure the riders bike # was Ex 17 and he had a beard like he was in ZZ Top. I'll be bringing a six pack for those guys in July. In the meantime, all of the entrance fees and expenses that were going towards Cycle Jam are going to my chiropractor so he can get me up and running again.
Because I last raced at Road Atlanta in 2010 and haven't ridden a motorcycle since that day.
I'm not currently racing because it's Saturday and I have to mow the lawn. However next weekend I'll be racing at Heartland Park with Ahrma.
Didn't Peter Data can say "Racing makes heroin addiction look like a vague wish for something salty.” I guess I'm too weak to quit.
Is that in cars, or flat tracking?
I still have two transponders, but I’m so lame they are from when Tyler raced. When I raced they used an abacus and paper.
Well those tires I was going to give you are probably too old now, but let me know when you come out and maybe I can come out and help. Who knows there is a 50% chance I may even try motorcycle road racing again.
Kids and no time.
I feel lucky I've been able to do a few track days with STT here and there. Still love it.
Does being at VIR this weekend allow me any cool points?
Really don't want to add to my concussion count.
I understand these words.
Because you’re not the boss of me.
Flat tracking. I think the 450 singles would be a fun class to work towards.
