Glad to see another Oregonian on here. I'm from the coast area (Florence, awesome dunes), but am currently in hawaii courtesy of the United States Army. I just recently got into sportbikes being a dirtbike kid all my life. Love the Honda CR's for dirt, but I'm thinking about waiting for the new kawa 7R before commiting to buy any sportbike. Anyway, glad to see another person from the great state of mud (lots of rain). Trails and dunes kick ass in oregon. cya.........mac

WOW! Thanks for the welcome, I had a few emails from other members so I came by and to my surprise sombody saw my post. As for the Chandler bashing, don't bite your lip just cuz i'm here. I dig the guy, he's one of the most down to earth riders i've ever met and feel that his performance of late is not all his fault, the bike is dated to say the least and he's old enough to have fathered most of the field! but he is one of the smoothest, non crashing riders there ever was and if pushed (for the right reasons) will perform, but he is still human so give him credit where credit is due and he'll retire when it's not fun anymore.

Welcome to SBW.

Glad to have some behind the scenes insight. We have probably met in passing. I have helped(when my real job allowed it) Steve Grigg since '96 with the Muzzy Raptors(one of the years on FBF Ducati but we won't mention the D-word) and have been in the Muzzy tent a couple times.

I must say that seems to be two class acts you've worked for in Chandler and Yates.

But if you have met John, you will know he was in the back part of the tent, and wasn't turning wrenches. He was earning those signatures!

John - older guy with glasses? What do you look like, I only remember 2 guy's with Grigg and one was Vic and the older greyish guy with glasses.

At least he got the poster signed!
