Sunday Sunday Sunday!

I rode the Bonnie about 100 miles today.

Started by riding up to Coffee at Dawn about 8:30 this morning. It was pretty quiet up there today. Those morning rides gonna be really cold in a couple of weeks.

Then I rode out to the Sandia Classic AHRMA race out at Sandia Motorsports Park out past 98th & Central. The event was mind blowing. Wish I had a small camera to ride with. I took some cell phone pix I won't bother to post. Here are a couple pix from years past.

The quality of the bikes there was amazing! I expected "real" racing but I was shocked by just how hard they go. I saw one guys go down in a banked corner at conservatively 80 MPH. Racer of the day IMO was riding a '37 Indian Scout. Just buried a Vincent and was hangin' with early '60's Norton's. Incidentally, I decided for the record. "I AM a pussy."

This was also a classic motocross event. Maybe if I lost another 60 lbs. I could be competitive on the old RM 125... I'd MUCH rather fall on dirt.
