Wow,
You just brought me alot of memories, I have been a FTR rider/member for 10 yrs. now. I dont race much anymore but made a bunch of friends. Alot of fun. I too started in Beg. class only I was on a 86 xr600. THe first one is always the hardest to finish. 17th by the way for my 1st race.
My best races were in the old guys class Vet & Senior. class. I would much rather race with guys my age.Whats that they say about age and treachery? Besides in an age class you have no displacement rules.
Awsome story

Great, and well-told story, T-Bone!

So what was the pain reliever of choice for the next week...?


Hmm, maybe I'll see what's around next year...

Excellent report! I think you are going to disappoint a guy because I won't be buying his Tiger - I'll be getting a TC250 instead!
