Garner some mojo at the start and let the big dog eat.

What's old is new!

Here is the some 90 minutes of the 1984 Paris-Dakar. Watching the Rothman Porsches primarily, but plenty of bikes as well.

I am getting the itch for something interesting to fix and ride. Trying to buy my 72 Eldorado back but will have to see if they even want to sell it. Other than that I just don't know, but I have the itch.

I have the itch to buy this back from my cousin and fix it up. I just don't have the $$ to fix the itch.

911 'RS' clones are popping up everywhere, how cool would a backdated AWD Rothman clone be!

I think a Beta Techno is just the scratching stick you need. Enquire within.

Damn. . . I'd like to watch the entire thing but the music is turning my stomach and nearly muting the exhaustt notes (~35 min in).

(Back to riding then!)

Any Bama boys on here

The Alabama-Auburn game just finished with one of the best endgames of all time in college football. Tied at 28-28 with 1 second left, Alabama tried a 57 yard field goal and an Auburn guy caught the missed try in the end zone and ran it back 105 yards for a touchdown. Amazing and now there are 105,000 fans on the field.

And the touchdown to tie when he was 1/2 way across the line of scrimmage was super as well
