The Indy 500 is the same these days. The old days of a guy running a diesel or a turbine or some other crazy contraption are gone.

I agree, I remember the last wide open Formula USA race at Willow Springs, when Richie Oliver riding a 250 GP Yamaha spanked the likes of Graves on his fire breathing monster, and a couple of turbo charged CBR 900 RR's from Texas! What a show. I also remember Baldwin, Sam McDonald and Dave Roper blasting around Bridge Hampton in The rain, and never letting off the gas going into turn one, what a display of balls! And on period tires, no less.

Those were the days. Don't get me wrong, todays racers are a great bunch (remember DuHamel winning Daytona with a broken leg?) and racing has come a long way, but I get nostalgic some times, I guess it comes with getting old.

Hey kpaul, they posted your entry, what's the secret?

Will the stands at Daytona continue to remain empty? Maybe they should offer free tickets to any European willing to come over here to watch motorcycle racing in the US. Obviously, we're not much interested.

The Corprate mentality is no where more visible than NASCAR.



What used to be a bunch of rabble-rousing moonshine runners is now a bunch of yankee pretty-boys. Jeff Gordon... Jimmy Johnson... Makes me sick everytime I see them.



Like watching a Leonardo DiCaprio movie.



Racing is fun because its not predictable, and because those involved are of a rare breed.



As it becomes more regulated and more controlled, the personalities become more watered down, and the product...



becomes more and more boring.

I wanna see the K head to head with the ZZR-12 and the XX.



I wanna see the GSXR-750.



I wanna see real honest to God dual-sport duel between the DL, the KLR, and the big honda.

Default HEY!

I'm riding a 2003 Mille from Morgantown to Pittsburgh this saturday. How about I write a review and take some pictures? That way, at least we stop looking at those danged Yamahas. I afraid those pics are starting to burn my screen.
