AFM 2015 – IN THE (trash) CAN

Posted: 23rd January 2016 by GoGo in RACE STORIES - 2012

Today I searched my 2015 race folders for pics.  Typically these folders are filled with laughter, Tracy half dressed, a few wrecked bikes and lots of pics at speed.  This year’s folders are filled with pics of asses.  Everyone’s asses.  Nearly every pic I took last year shows somebody bent over working on our Superduke.  That was […]

Thank You

MEETING OF THE MINDS AFM round 5, 8/02/2012 As racers, out on track, we are programmed by flags.  They represent change.  Called over the airways, pulled from wooden stands, they are waved by our guardians to warn us of what lies ahead.  When you think about it, if you think about it, these are very […]

What do they say, if you want something done right do it yourself?  Yea that’s all well and good but I found a problem with that – sometimes doing it yourself takes a LOT more work… When the first KTM RC8R pics showed up in magazines I felt like I was in trouble, the bike […]

2012 Prep

Posted: 18th February 2012 by GoGo in ARTICLES - 2012, RACE STORIES - 2012
