3 hours to play 18 holes today, all of the posers and parolees were at home or at the bar.
Flug you wouldn't believe how over the top it is....and it starts at the 50 level, if the kid's brain isn't fried by the time he ages out of the 65 class it's a minor miracle.

Too many talented riders (and to skwidd's point - marriages) have been ruined by overzealous moto-parents, rarely do they ever return to the sport.
