I never felt so worthless as when I owned my 1976 360 Husky and my riding buddy had a 370 Pursang, both bikes which had seen better days, and we were pretty evenly matched, and he bought a brand new 400 Magnum just like that one. I couldn't keep him in sight on a track.

Beautiful fall day here in the Northeast and I was able to put my socks on by myself this morning so what better reason could there be to go for a ride today?

The view out my office (trailer) makes it so hard to concentrate...

Thanks. Evansville, Broome-Tioga & Southwick are on my list. Have to check out the others. Considering the ARHMA race at Unadilla too, although that one will get a bit pricy with a one race membership to ARMHA.
