As luck would have it, the CHP checked the VIN and found out the bike had been reported stolen (insurance fraud). Guy lost his job with the CHP and left the club...
One of the best "Stolen bike" stories I've heard.
What about the dude at Sonoma a few years ago that got his bike repo’ed at the race round cause he failed to make the payments.

The only thing A group at a track day and Saturday Practice share is that they are both at the track. A group has street bikes, people who should be in B and a track day environment. Saturday Practice is 100% licensed racers on race bikes practicing for races. The attitude is different and the intensity is much higher.

I laughed...HARD! Thanks Rob! That guy STILL drops my name around FB when he's feeling punchy about the AFM. That was one of the funnier "Oh-My-GOD" moments in the AFM...two big dudes from Oakland Repo'ing this guys bike, getting in a shouting match/ altercation and the CHP happening to be there on site (Sonoma) due to their recruitment booth being at our event. Things escalate and someone ends up in the back of the Chippie's cruiser...

Epic stuff, really.

And then there's the one time a guy started and raced Afemme until he was black flagged half way through the race. Apparently he was black flagged due to having "illegal" mods on his rider...

I remember him removing the wheels thinking these dudes couldn't move the bike without them, but I think they were ready to pick it up and carry it with him on it when Poncherello came over.

I dont know but if you are not paying bills in order to pay for racing you might have a problem. Just a thought.....

Getting your shit repo'd at the track is honestly pretty hilarious and humiliating.

There is a lot more to the story, but not for public consumption...
