In!

I'll be joining FTB and riding up on Saturday. Hey, one night's MC camping is better than none right?

This will be the camping debut of the new 990 SMT since I had to miss CroMag!

Technical first?

Not necessarily changing terrain (although having big-bike routes has merit), but how about changing order? How about getting some really good technical single and two-track out of the way before...

A fellow racer, in another class, just happened to catch FTB and I in action on May 19th at NHMS. The camera angle misses a lot but if you start watching around 7 minutes you will see FTB and I pass...

Belly pan...

The belly pan is my own design, rendered in fiberglass. The current design, on #280, houses the battery in the rear. The tail section and fenders on #280 are, similarly, my own design and execution...

In Vintage racing we need to use vintage designs. Our bikes compete in classes that are restricted to roughly early 70's technology. #91's frame is basically stock while #280 does have a braced...

#91 is essentially stock
#280 has a warmed over crank, Carillo rods, Venolia HC offset-pin pistons, big valve heads, cam, 36mm Mikunis, shortened cylinders and a partridge in a pear tree :D

Am18

Yes, the AM18 designed as a rear tire, so is the AM22. Both are also recommended as front tires but are not designed for it. I tried the AM18 because at that time there seemed no better choice in...

Am26

I just want to reiterate, and again YMMV, but the AM22 was solid as a rock until I was on my ass, literally. So far, on the AM26 I've done stupid stuff at least 4 times. I hit the elephant toes on...
