I am a racer and new to this forum.I started racing with AFM in 98.I only did a few races this season,took a little time off to get a new bike(GSXR 10hundo)even though it is my streetbike,I got the idea to do the AFM 4hr on it.It was kind of a last minute deal,Gary Jaehne helped me put the whole package together THANKS Gary!
I am trying to pick up a 01 750,so I don't have to change the 1k back and forth from street to race in order to get to work.I must say that the bike and the team did really well,for a bunch of "old guys"I am planning to race the 1k next year,but am still undecided as to go open prod,or keep running open GP.I still have my trusty YZFZR 7/1000,but it is a little tired.I did a little tuning for Ed Milhausen this season,and when he was'nt taken out,or fell down,he did ok.We only had a few transmission issues,but the junkyard engine we got was a good one.If any of you have a question,and I can answer it,I will.....Robbie

No and Yes...I am your E-boss

I compiled it as a query to how many racers were here on

Steveco recongized that were a bunch and decided to give us our own little forum...which he did! Then he needed a real bastid to keep all of the adrenilin junkies in line

I am the basid

You know a tire guy that would by it...

I think I am in the same boat as Superhawk2000. Paid registration, took the class part of the AFM school. Mounted up my 96 GSX-R 750 and proceeded to spit and sputter around the track with carburetor problems. Could not take my rider test. I believe it was Thanksgiving or some other holiday of 98 and it was windy as hell. Let my friend Jessie Broadway take the bike and I was going to come back but never did. We were going to share a ride and do different classes throughout the season. Track schools are about all I make time for now.

Super Motard racer here.... My first experience on the track was good and bad. I was comfortable and fast until I got a little overzealous and highsided resulting in a broken ankle. That was aug 25 of this year and I'm home now from motard race #2. I was not comfortable with my bike today until the last race. It felt squirmy all over I'm sure I wasn't the same today . Without riding for two months waiting for my ankle to heel and then jumping into a racing situation I know wasn't the smartest thing to do.I was slow compared to alot of other racers. I managed to keep my bike up all day but with a few pucker factors( damn front tire stick STICK) I raced but not at full pace. I chocked every start to hang back from the field and when fast guys would come up on me I would let them by. I wanted to get back on the horse today. I feel I did, also I learned and played with suspension and tire pressures and was able to feel the difference and know I was going the right direction. I look foward to the winter dirt riding season to get practice on slipery surfaces. The new year is almost upon us and I will be there on the grid next year being a better rider.


Am I a racer?
