And IMO, the good riders through out time have always been talented, but none had the brass ones of the board track racers of the early 1900s! No brakes, no helmet, no throttle, 100mph and just a kill switch to bump and racing on a 60 degree bank of oily giant splinters!?!
+1 on those board track racers, there is a small M/C museum near here on Route 66, there is a board track bike there set on a little section of board track, 60 degree bank. Scary just to look at that thing.


Dallas is not usually a slick track, I think they have pretty good dirt there. Last interview I saw with Tomac he sounded undecided about riding a 450, but I'll be surprised if he doesn't ride 2-3 rounds of 450 class. Like someone said, KDub's bike is just sitting there, riderless.
