Wish I could make it down there. It's only 3.5 hrs each way for me...

I think I'll go up to Bankhead NF instead. I keep meaning to check that place out more.

well the only riding I did today was on a 1980 Honda ATC70 that's a tiny 3-wheeler for any that don't know. yes I still have my first gas powered ride. Also had my smaller racing quad out for a spin. I sure miss that. i know all of y'all are motorcycle people and so am i but I'm yet to get the rush on 2 wheels that I do on those 4, That little quad is like having powered skates on your feat.

spent the rest of the day moving things around in my shop. found the battery in the little CL100 was leaking acid, so I pulled it and cleaned up the mess it was making. then started moving things around to get more space to lay the Raptor motor out when i take it apart. it's time for that monster to come alive again.

That would be eatalotapeaches if I had to guess. He's the only guy here who autocrosses that I know of. Silver Miata, beard, one functional arm?

Just heard tonight that he is 100% and the bike may be salvageable. The frame appears straight at least...

One arm is right - but he was in a rental that day

How's the arm coming along?
Its still attached and casted. another check up in 2 weeks, we'll see how that goes. I went on a 6 mile night ride last night thru inner Jackson, past Fondren down Bailey Ave, but i was peddling... I made sure I was nowhere near the back of the pack.

that was me. been doing the car thing a lot since I cant ride. Took third place for the season in street tire. Not bad for only having one arm since July.
