Anybody Out There???

I know we're in the off-season, but sure seems like this place turned into a ghost town!

Surely there's some racing to discuss???

I don't know how I'm going to make it to March!

The Destroyer is getting a refresh, upgraded my trailer, not sure how many times I can reorganize the garage. The snowblower is gassed up and tested, truck is ready for 4-wheel drive.

Any suggestions on how to kill time???

What are you guys out there doing for the winter?

Hey Dennis,

I'm here, just laying low, unwinding from the end of race season events.

No major plans for the bike, I only had 76 passes in all of 2012, I'll take my chances on skipping a tear down this season, having done all the heavy issues last winter I think I'll be OK.

I scored a Good Year rear tire from Sam last week, since he will be down for a while longer no use letting a great tire go to waste, I'll put it to good use.

Work and the current political climate issues have me watching the budget closely for 2013, I hope to make the Rockingham races at least, the rest are up in the air depending on how things go, we may have an 8 to 10% cut in operations & staffing, meaning up to two days a month off duty w/o salary through all of 2013.

Good news, Marie has applied for and been approved for early SSA retirement, basically she has no future working potential at the young age of 62!!!! All the manufacturing plants in our area do not want a manufacturing tech with 45 years of experience, they want youngn's who are cheaper to pay, fiscally this is not an issue for us, she will actually earn -MORE- collecting on her retirement savings and SSA, I'm hiring her on as my Crew Chief, she gets half our winnings.

I need to do some personal improvements, get off my butt and cut some weight @ 245, would like to be under 200 by spring the lower the better, we'll see how well I do with that goal, seeing Rich do it last year is inspiring!

We'll get more posting going on after the winter doldrums and what ever happens in January becomes more clear and have taken a toll on my mood.

Whew! It was awfully lonely out here. Good to hear from you, hope work goes well and doesn't negatively impact your racing budget.

Lou tore my engine apart and surprisingly found no issues other than worn valve guides. That engine had more than 200 passes and turned a 9.62 in Valdosta.

I'm with you on the weight reduction program. We have the same goal.

If you know anyone interested in a trailer, mine is for sale. Upgraded to a nice toy hauler that will make life easier next year.

Enjoy the holidays Noel. See you soon!

Hey, I don't want to be a smart arse but living south of I-10 is plus. I installed a swingarm I purchased from Lou and D&G is making some spacers this weekend.Kicking the old belt aside and going with a chain and an extra 4inches of wheelbase. It's looking good so far and working on a rear fender mod and back to the track. We have a track 20mins down the road and another 1hr so we have something going on all the time.Two weeks ago a couple of AHDRA suspects (Drapp&Huffman) came over to Bradenton and won the Harley class 1&2. Guys March will be here in no time.....

Yeah, yeah, Taco if you weren't a smart arse, you wouldn't be Taco;-)

I know all about the I-10 latitude. A friend defected to Venice from Dayton and I get a freakin weather report every day.

Good to hear your progress on the bike. Keep us posted on results!

Can't wait to see you guys in March!
