.......Eric Bostrom? He was racing this year and then just disappeared. What happened? Thanks. Ride safe.
Something with funding for the team and being able to pay his salary. He left after Daytona.

I thought I remember reading somewhere that he might be showing up in BSB soon.

Thanks Turbo. Nice work on the bike (bicycle) too. When I was sick, cycling and swimming were two things I could use to rebuild my strength and stamina. Cycling is a phenominal sport. Good work. Ride safe.

It was more than him not getting paid. He thought that the team couldn't put enough into the bike in order for it to be truly competitive if he stayed on with them so he actually retired from Motorcycle racing in favor of his bike shop and bike race team.

Didn't he leave racing for a few years to start a farm somewhere in South America?

I believe he then came back to the US, raced for a a couple years and jacked his leg up big time. I think it was a foot peg or something that caught him on a lowside and tore into him badly.

Him and Ben are still making their guest rider visits on Cafe Racer though, haha.


- edit

yeah here we go, farming in Brazil in '08
