Seeing your MA bike all shined up is NOT doing me any favors on my indecisiveness about having a clean endurance bike...

It is always those that use their brakes the least that want to upgrade them the most.

Two bikes is the answer....

It's fine for an endurance bike to be a little rough around the edges. Shes like the dirty little girl everyone would bang under the bleachers at the HS football games but never marry.

And then there's your queen bee... that you dump money on dressing her up in short skirts and high heals.... The one you parade around and are really possessive of.... yet all the while wishing she was as kinky as the dirty girl ...

So much truth in that it hurts...



But yeah, you're right, I don't even flinch when you guys take it out. OK, maybe I twitch once or twice when Will slings a leg over it...

Was up there a few weeks ago for a track day. That track is amazing, I really enjoy it. A local guy from my main track org will be racing a 1000RR up there. Jeremy Cook.

Really excited to watch how the pro's take their lines through this course.

Qualified 17th.

I picked up .7 tenths today even with a poor tire choice. The hardest tire they have is the way to go for the race.

How is Gerloff so freakin fast?? Qualified 1.2 seconds ahead of Valentine and 2.7 seconds ahead of JD!! That's not something you see everyday especially since JD is usually really fast. Gerloff was only 2 seconds off Hayden's pole position in Superbike!! lol

How is he not being recruited by a WSS or Moto 2 team??
