Why the heck did they put the racetrack in such a desolate, cold area? I found the site on Google Earth, and it doesn't look like there's much of anything nearby aside from one small town.

It must be open only a few months a year.

Whilst we were there elk cows were roosting in the sun trackside with their calves,
Were they on Huskys? Or just some crappy old XRs?

I find your colOmbian stereotype very disrespectful and unnecesary.

Huh? There's nothing in the article I can find that even suggests Colombia. He says: "whilst" about 3 times a paragraph, but nobody's perfect.

My manager just went to Colombia for a 2-week vacation. He said it was awesome, beach and mountain resorts, horseback riding, diving, fine dining. With the exchange rate dinner at a top restaurant is about $10. He's been very excited since he got back.

It's all the "Snow", Morbo. The "Snow".....

Anyway, I have no idea WTF this guy's talking about - if he's referring to MY first post, I was making a play on words.

(FYI Senor mateo, Roosting is a moto-term; it refers to a sort of "rolling burnout" on a dirtbike where the back tire is kicking-up SO much dirt it resembles a Rooster's Tail. It also refers to birds "bedding down" to rest on an elevated area. As both in-reference to Elk are completly Ridiculous, the term I believe Tor Sagen was looking-for is "Sunning".)

no...

i'm refering to the "like a long lost girlfriend returning after being kidnapped in the Columbian jungle." part, but thanks for your clarification.

And morbo, i like your statement.
