Cool Dream Garage

Well, mine anyway. We're heading down to VIR tomorrow for two days on the South course. My buddies are all staging their bikes in my garage since I am the keeper of the trailer (lucky me). In the front is my F2, to the right is my Falco, back left is a 996S, and in the middle is a 748. I've always dreamt of my garage looking like this, so I had to immortalize it. Just thought I'd share.

(my camera sucks- sorry)

Don't try to keep up with my life, you'll only get hurt.

Itís the bikes that are a dream, not the garage.

Duc asses do look good.

I forget have you been to VIR before? I did a day & half (rain 2nd morning) at VIR N with Nesba last Oct., nicest track Iíve been on and lot of fun. I took it easy down the roller coaster though.

The garage is a freebie (gov't qtrs). I had to spend 3 months on a waiting list, renting a room from a neurotic divorcee, to wait for housing with a garage to open up. So I aint complainin'

Never been to VIR before. That explains why I won't be able to sleep for the next 2 days- the anticipation is killing me!

You loose sleep 2 nights before a track day? I only loose it the night before. Donít worry, Nesba is great for learning a new track. I was tense the first session at VIR N, then started having fun.

Youíll be doing a day each on VIR S & N? On the N course when you go from the infield back onto to the main course you canít see the track, just pine trees on the skyline. Aim for the 17th tree from the right. If you canít count that fast follow the braking rubber. I was lucky, just a week after the AMA was there, all the rubber was pointing the same direction.

Nope. 2 days on the South. I can't stick around for the N on Monday. I've watched that video of the S course probably 100 times. Leaving in less than 8 hours. Yahoo!
