Finally put some pics in the photo gallery

A recent post made me do it. The only photos of my bike that I own thanks to a track photographer. I've used several of these in different posts recently.

One post in particular, encouraging guys to take their street bike to the track, was lost in the BIG CRASH of '03. The point of that post was, you don't need the latest and greatest to go out and have fun on the track. If your bike's in good working order with good tires, you can go out and run faster than you ever have, in a reasonably safe environment, and improve your riding skills. All that while having the most fun possible! There really is no reason not to give it a go.

Encouraging as it is, the only thing stopping me from a track day or track class is $. That requires wife approval and availability.

Whenever I do have the funding, I'll post lots o' questions to the Track forum.

Like the pics, Dad. 'bout blinkin' time

Great pics Dad!

Unfortunately I am in the same boat as kanwisch, only I don't even have money to get a bike yet.

And I'm not even going to consider trying to take that f&%$ing Buell Blast to a track.

Hopefully in '04 the Mrs. and I will get back on two wheels.

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

Great pictures!

Dad, I was thinking of a new paint scheme for your bike... You should paint it like a dinosaur. I feel the explanation is self-explanatory...I thank you.

That's what dinosaurs DID look like. You guys go to a couple museums, read a few books, get the opinion of what some college educated, glorified ditch digger geologist thinks it MIGHT have looked like, and now you know it all. Did you ever think to ask someone who was there?! NOOOO..... ya' prick.

You're right, I've been a bit presumptuous with my college degree and cable TV, I thought I knew it all. So, being the amazing resource you are, can you tell me if Jesus was as cool as all those bumper stickers say he was and does he really love me?

Does he love me love me, or does he just love me? I'm so confused.
