    How much does it cost? I'm new to the bike racing world. I don't know much. It'll be just me and my wife.

    Don't cost anything other then your time and gas to get here. It's a nice ride and my wife and I will provide an after ride BBQ dinner and drinks. Just make sure your bike is up to a minimum 50 miles of riding. Hope to see you and your wife here.

    It's certainly worth the trip (and I drove from OKC)! You'll meet folks from all over the country.

    Well...only around 8 weeks to go. Hope everyone is gearing up to come do the Scarecrow Run. A lot of riding...a little food and beer...a fun day hanging out with fellow riders. Mark your calendar and plan to attend.

    It's up in the air whether or not I will be there. Need to get a bottom end case w/ seals before the meet. Blew one out and fixed several issues from last year. Need to get it back together and greased up, but it's been on the back burner since last years meet.

    Been a hot second since I worked on the bike. Hopefully it's... well... Like riding a bike. LOL Just gonna slap it together properly, but ain't gonna look pretty. Just be functional. Back to the whole 14:1 compression on 110 octane.

    When your fast...you don't have to look good! I once lost a 1/4 mile car race. I was driving my pretty 77 Pontiac Trans-Am with hopped up 6.6. Got my butt kicked by an old rusted out Ford Galaxy 500 station wagon. Guy intentionally kept that wagon ugly to entice people like me to race him. Didnt know till after I raced him he was punching over 400hp and even had nitrous setup. It was quite embarrasing to lose to a rusted out grocery getter station wagon.lol
