Blake that is too cool
Wow Blake. Had no idea you followed in your bro's footsteps. Thanks for putting all this together. Thanks to all the Yahoos for takin this to next level.
Got some fresh gas in Skully, cleaned the spark plug, and now the POS is running great. Still backfires like a pack of pissed off firecrackers on decel, though. I also bent my foot pegs so I don't pole vault when I lean it over dragging a knee!!
Here's another short one to get you guys fired up for this weekend. Clif and Kathryn hosted a minibike 'Test & Tuna' Saturday... to get the sickles all dialed in... and to eat tunafish.
Laura Webber comes in a little hot with Buzzard on her tail, followed closely by Clif and Joyce.
Damn! That bitch is crazy!
You guys have way too much fun . /\ /\
I got mine out of the storage building Sunday and to my surprise the damn thing started. I brought it to work with me yesterday with the intentions of putting a 5.5hp honda that I laying around on it, but my clutch wont fit the honda and I am too cheap to buy another clutch (that and I just sent a large check to the IRS). So I tuned up the 3hp briggs that is on it, I may actually be getting all 3 horses running at the same time!
From the looks of the weather we should have a large crowd of spectators in the show barn. I can hardly wait!
Good deal, Wesley! And good point about the crowd in the barn... if the weather is lousy, we'll have 'em packed in to watch the races!
I think that the most spoken words in the staging area for the mini bike races will be "hold my beer"
Nothing quite as fun to watch as a bunch of middle aged men acting like teenagers!
Not me! That's why I put my throttle and brake on the same side to leave my left hand free for BEvERages.
Buzzard I can not believe you would do that to DW wife! (make note to my self stay clear of Buzzard) This might get crazy, but fun. See yall Friday.
a few from the pits...
Here's a video my buddy, Zue, took of my heat race. I was so busy blocking the outside, Wesley passed me on the inside.
I promise it feels like you're going alot faster!
It was great meeting everyone yesterday! I had a blast! I tell ya what, a chopper doesn't turn too well. I think next year "Skully" will be reincarnated and come back as a bobber or maybe even a flat tracker!
We are going to have to do that here in Florida....guess it's time to drag out my old '60's mini-bike
Thanks for the videos, hope you guys have more!
We had a blast out there guys! Thanks for making this so much fun... all the feedback indicated that the minibike races were one of the highlights of the weekend for a lot of folks!
GARY - those pics are great... DEFINITELY destined for wall prints!
BUZZARD - great video! That's some super-hot minibike action, fer sure!
Looks like it was a blast guys. Can't wait to see more pics and vids. Mini bikin fo life.
I am thinkin that next year we may want to add a "seniors" division. That way anyone of 30 can be competitive!
damn I am sore today.
I had a BLAST!!! that was definintly the highlight of the show... build my bike OVERNIGHT with a frame/wheels that i bought from a vender at the show. Well worth the 3am friday night for the races saturday... now if i can only keep the Chain on my bike i might have won!
The ultimate parkin spot!!
30... try over 50, everyone, including the women were kickin my butt
I suggested 30 just to keep the kids,,, ummm,,, I mean ringers in a separate class. Besides I dont heal or recover as fast as I did at 40, much less 20.
Buzzard it was a great race even thou I lost. I want to thank Blake and the Yay Hoos for doing a great JOB! Does any one have a better shot of all the races?
The races were a blast. I'm just glad that I was even competitive and not bringing up the rear, or getting lapped.
Gary, great pics of the Yay-Hoo pits.
Round Up Racing Footage
Ha! Excellent video, BIGGY... I'm glad you captured that sprint to the photo finish at the end of your video... what a freakin' riot!!!
Minibike guys rule.
Why do I feel like that comment is directed at me?
Here's a link to all my Round Up pics. The minibike stuff starts around photo #40.
Haha, it wasn't directed at you at all. But when I read it back after all the grief I've given you in person, I could see where you'd think that.
You, Joyce and Kathryn did awesome. It was great to see ya'll out there having fun and giving it your best. For reals.
