Default You made this story up, didn't you?

The picture with the cardboard cut out of Kevin Schwantz was a nice touch. You expect us to believe that you chose the SV650 over the GSXR. What do you take us for? A bunch of jackasses with nothing better to do than sit by our computers and wait for your next story?

You guys must have been saving up all your juice for the FNG to show up.



Funny how much gets done when at least ONE person is WORKING, isn't it?



My congratulations to "the processed fish product" on dragging that puck, no matter how briefly.

You guys owed him after riding his bike MUCH faster than he could then posting it on-line.



And as for bike choice... don't yah have to buy 'em if you break 'em?



That and as I recall JH was riding a Ducatti last he was humiliated here on MO. He was going for the familure. 90 digree V-twin with great midrange... must have missed shelling out 8 bills for the privelige of having the valves adjusted though...

What I really want (need) is the school. This is a fairly timely article for me. I have been researching a number of options. I had looked at the KS school and I am interested in attending. I will probably attend the California Superbike School. Simply because they conduct a school here in Texas. That way I wouldn't have to deal with Airports and Hotels. They are about the same price. There is the celebrity appeal however. That would be sweet (intimidating) to have Kevin Schwantz following you around.

Ah, that was a trip down memory lane.



I took Reg Pridmore's CLASS school at Road Atlanta (before they rearranged the track a couple years ago). Rained almost the whole day. There's nothing like going 125 down the back straight, in heavy rain, knowing the Gravity Cavity is waiting for you.

I am looking forward to reading more pieces by Mr. Hatch. Well done! His style reminds me of a certain other moto-writer before he became Bitter, and somewhat jaded.



Suggestion: plop The Fish on a Hawg and send him to Sturgis. I am fed up to the gills of Sturgis Stories and the whole Hawg Scene (which will be crammed down our throats by the popular media next year during the Big 100 Birthday, fer sure), but I betcha Hatch can come up with a fresh angle.

Default Here here!

This narrative on racing school was terrific. Let's hear Mr Hatch's take on the other end of the motorcycling spectrum.



Even if he doesn't go to Sturgis, just put him on a bike and give him a laptop... excellent reading!
