Yes, great selection of bike videos, Flatty!

I used to love to go to Daytona and see the Wall of Death show, when I wasn't distracted by the other "attractions" (this was 2001, I think....):



p.s., that year, did a saddle sore 1000 on the way back. No trailer was involved. Just a Harley.

Pit is just amazing to watch!

Pit and his wife Ester are just the greatest people, full of energy and always upbeat. It was a real treat for me to get to spend several saturdays at MotorcyclePedia with such enthusiastic folks.

And I am Certifiable!




In the whole world there are only (about) 14 operating wall-of-death shows and I had the oportunity to ride in one!

I am looking forward to december when Pit returns from Germany!

I haven't ridden in about a month. This displeases me.

I'm actually worried about my battery? It's a big GSA battery but its been pretty cold.

Anyone think I have anything to worry about?

I have not ridden in four months..but I knew it was coming. I got both bikes on battery tenders and now the truck too. Everyone of them starts right up when needed. I highly rec' the battery tenders.

think your bike is fairly new so will likely crank and start. But not good for battery to consistently drain and sit. Best to put on a battery tender during those periods. My bikes go in the tenders and Stabil in the tank even though I try to ride as often as possible through winter

Do I need to be hooked up to a power source for that? I don't have electricity in my garage.

Yeah, whether you will remember how to ride!

Why don'tcha do a Polar Bear on Sunday to charge up the battery? You're young. Should be able to handle the cold weather with some long underwear. You snowboard, right? Most skiers/snowboarders are actually getting too hot when it gets above 32 degrees. Roads have been clear for about a week now in your neck of the woods.
