Oh nice! I might have ridden with you once last year on a ride with Sean White. That was the last time I rode my bike LOL. I had lasik done the next day, that got me out of riding for a few months due to eye pressure. I need to start getting out again soon.
Racing has defiantly been different the past few years. It will be nice to have a big race in Barstow with the Mint bringing a race there. Hopefully there is a large turnout, and more people will be motivated to go racing.
