Here you go, looks like fun to me.http://www.metacafe.com/watch/92090/...ce_roadracing/

wibbly haha oh man, this winter is going to be expensive.



i have to finish (well not really finish, but at least progress) the rc... gotta install my carbon bodywork as well as pick up my ohlins shock, mori link, kyle clip ons, sato rearsets, marchesini cast mags, and brembo radial master. there are a few other odds and sods i have to get as well, but that's most of it.


and then i also have to get the new race bike ready for the track next year... (fortunately that's mostly little stuff like paint )

Yea those backroad twisties in central Florida are killa!

I'll be catching up on my home renovations (as usual ), I have a new kitchen to put in and a 6+ yo brand new family room to finish up (it has a structural issue that needed fixing first).
So on that note, if anyone's got any great ideas for kitchen lighting or appliances gimme a shout!

Dansrc51 I was actually happy it was raining today. that means the temp comes up and it will be around 50 degrees as I ride to work today, versus the 27 degrees it was last week. riding year round isn't always fun, but unless it's snowing, I'm riding, so F#ck living in the south. I've been there done that, and it's not my cup of tea. besides, we have the aufderhyde freeway here just for starters, and that is our version of the dragon. Not to mention that beautiful wolf creek is right outside my door.......

Thanks for rubbing that in. You cock.

On the other hand, the skiing in Whistler is great!

thatkindasux This years trip to Breckenridge or Whistler this jan was subsituted by plasma TV. I do like twisty roads, but ill give up some twisties for being about to RIDE ALL YEAR LONG, while you all practice up on your skillz with the PS2 or Xbox.

What would one describe the winter the midwest gets? We get two months of off and on cold, but they get at least twice that. Mass. is my version of Florida after being a former MN winter fanatic.

Well, not to shove it right back at you, but a hobby that doesn't reach the incredible mountainous and snowy areas of Florida.... snowboarding

See, there are tradeoffs to having warm and sunny all year.
