So, it's been a crazy week, and I haven't had much time to update you folks. Last weekend I went to the first live race ever, as a spectator. MRA race #1. The Motorcycle Racing Association is the Colorado club racing body. I also decided, on my way there, to explore a road I haven't ridden before. Turns out it was dirt, and it was not comfortable riding. It would more comfortable with everything tied back much further. I couldn't move my body on the bike, or stand up, which made it difficult. I chose to camp out between Saturday and Sunday, and tested a luggage configuration on my 250 for Felix's trip. Decided I didn't like it, and am in the process of reconfiguring it. So, here are the pics:

The camping config.


The dirt road:


The little town of Gold Hill:


Me in the pits, on Sasha's NSK39 knock-off, and goggles, going to check out the rides. That's Sasha's kid, and BTW, Sasha is a bad ass. He totally took me under his wing this entire week-end. I learned so much, and he fed me! CSC is freaking cool! Colorado Sportbike Club....


The man heself - Sasha and his kid:


Some bikes in the pits, ready to be raced:
Thruxton and 675


Bastard of a bike, 500cc dirt bike engine, Ascot Frame, Honda F3 forks, and F2 wheels, etc,etc


Moto GP 250, freakin fast ass 250 I tell ya!


The 250's computer:


Bad ass Van rig:


250's chain, 418, crazy small, like a bicycle chain:


RD350 2-stroke engine in new upgraded chassis and stuff:


Champion of ROR, a brand new RC8. HOT!:


These guys showed up out of nowhere and won the race. A van, mechanic, rider, wet and dry bike. Freakin fast kid!


The wet bike:


HARDCORE: THis guy got injured in a MotoX accident 2 months ago. He still has a few opperations to go, and he's out on the track haulin' balls! He got 4 overall, not bad considering he was in a wheel chair when he wasn't on his bike....






Ricky Orlando's bike, the racer sponsored by my local shop:


Just look at those clouds. A little cold, but almost a perfect day!




Gridded up:


Haulin' ass:


unfortunately out of focus, but this lady was fast as hell!


The top 3, last ROR race, second lap. The gap increased significantly during the race. And wheel-chair guy was healthily in 4th, far away from 5th...


The winners, the top 2 got sponsor ships, and RC8 took the $1K purse. Not much, but a great start to the season....


And that's the wrap.

How about a rig like blackboars? the gizmo or gividi or whatever its called?
Givi. I have not tried an overnight with that yet, you'd have to be pretty creative to pack the gear, but you'd still need some other way to stow a sleeping bag and roll.

Looks like it was a great trip Spooph, thanks for all the pics. Off the race bike and into a wheelchair? WOW!

Felix, Boar and Delta, I am thinking about racks, in a very similar fashion as Boar's, but without having to sacrifice a seat, and also to rigidity with meta, as opposed to the seat's plastic.... I'll post up when I get there. For this coming week, it's all about the Loser, time to get 'er done!

Ratty, I know, right? Although it might be a gamble.... Which some folks are willing to do. The boss seems to have done for a long time now, and the rider is hot off a couple of motox wins....
