Kawasaki

Did you see, or better yet hear the green Kawasaki 2 stroke? I dont know what size engine, but at least a 500cc. That thing was awesome! Sounded like an industrial pop-corn machine.

I didn't get to hear it but it looked fantastic. Very well done by someone, and I believe it was the H1 500 Mach III version since the H2 750 block looks noticeably bigger, if my memory serves...

So this coming weekend I need to work on improving my action-photography skills. Can anybody suggest a motocross track where I have a good chance of seeing airborne dirt bikes? I need practice practice practice...

And now that the RT is back together, I plan to ride to wherever y'all send me, in case there's others looking to get out of the house this weekend (weather pending).

Cool2 Fond Fairwell My Friends...

The family and I are moving to WA, leaving Saturday morning. Glad to have met everyone that crossed paths here in the Q-City. Wish I could've ridden more and sat longer at Hawthorne's but sometimes life gets in the way.
If anyone makes it to Seattle, we're just a ferry ride across the Puget Sound. Let me know you're coming, we'll keep the lights on!

Adios Amigo's!

Stay in touch, Mike. It was very nice to have met you!

PS: take your umbrella. LOL

BALLS! I'll be in town, but pretty busy Sunday with my family for once at the Outdoor Whitewater Center.

But good news is I started dating a girl in Charlotte, so I should be up a fair number of weekends.

Better news, she's grown up around bikes and loves riding two up!

We'd like to meet this girl someday, so we can determine if you're good enough for her or not.

Hopefully she'll stick around for me to bring her by sometime. Hoping my life is going to settle down soon enough for me to get back up to Charlotte regularly again and I started applying to jobs up there this week (which I've been trying to do for 3 years ). Gonna try to make tomorrow's dinner, but it will be a big stretch. Game time decision.
