All of it counts...editing the list is WORK..
We do have quite a collective of 'T'-types here in

I find it quite interesting that a couple of us know each other without ever realizing we are BARFing together..that is a Thread bonus!
Back to do the editing..

In the flesh, so to speak ... I was also Rider Rep for a season or two.

I think we've met a time or two, but I'm not positive. For all the stuff I did for CityBike, I never actually went into the office ... never met Brian in person, I think I met J ... hmm, can't remember her name now. Wish I'd stuck with it, but I got burnt out and just couldn't do anything of any quality anymore.

I used to kick Kneedrag's ass all the time
I think it was 1991 when I would have done my first year of AFM.
I was all set to take the racer school, but mt ex250 took a dump on me, and I ended up never going
So now I'm content on doing track days, but you never know

Since you're counting, I'll chime in here as well.

Spent the summer of '83 racing with a club in Phoenix. No nat'l affiliations or stuff like that...just join the club, show up, pass tech (such as it was) and race.

Used Phoenix Int'l Raceway and ran it backwards! Main straight and the banked turns 3 & 4 plus the infield road. Track surface was extremely abrasive back then and tires were burnt toast in 100 miles. "Box stock" class with a 83 Honda Interceptor (God I loved that bike).

Second place trophies all summer. Never could touch the guy who always won, but I sure had fun. Quickly taught me that regardless of how fast I thought I went on the street, it was nothing compared to the speed generated on a real track under racing conditions.

Thanks for bringing back the great memories. For me these days, that's as close as I get to a track.

Harold...

No doubt..........

I think it was that mentality that started the thread talking about it only takes money to be fast.

I know one thing I have never experienced on the street, and that is the g-forces from the tank slamming into me as slow down. Nor have I ever experience on the street the feeling of my arms falling off from being so tired from racing all day and using all my strength to manhandle the bike through hard turning and braking.

Nor I have ever experienced brake fade on the street.

And I think only on the track is where I could have crashed at a pretty good pace, tumble like a zillion times, get up, and walk back to the pits.
