1. Sorry for any interruption today/tomorrow. We'll be upgrading the site software. The usability will be very similar, as it's just an upgraded version of the same software. It's a necessary upgrade for security purposes. The exact timing is a little uncertain as there are a few moving parts. The most likely time that we will be taking the site down will be Wed 6/3 around 9am EST. The upgrade should take 2-3 hours. Thanks for your patience through the update.

    I talked to my brother last night and there is a good chance I have to work on this day so you would be able to go with him.

    I'll be rolling in Friday afternoon. It's going to be tight having both the 50cc and 196cc bikes ready - especially with the big bike needing a new rear wheel laced up over the Memorial Day weekend. My wheel builder is hating me. Chain issues should be solved (photos). I might even be able to see Scotto- in the final race this time!

    I think I may have gotten the "wobble" out of my rear hub adapter. it turns out the 3 sprocket mounts were .020 thou different in height! (someone bumped the machine, or something) Top notch QC... Anyhoo, the Grey Ghost is faster now!!!

    The only thing I want you to see of me in the final race is the back of my jersey :D

    Isn't that what it's really all about? ;) It's about 4-strokes and 2-strokes racing in harmony......or somthing like that. The real beauty of these awesome events is you see the most insane builds ever and meet the coolest people that like doing the same thing.......motorizing bicycles. High performance or otherwise, you see them all at the races. Ya gotta be there to know the feeling, sorry to those that can't attend.

    Only 5 days to the Grange event.

    Another over the top Joker Machine GC 160 build is almost finished.
    Check out those double discs, that has gotta be a first for a motorized
    bike. :D

    That is one pro racer, beautiful!
    You may be the first to get all those brakes up front but I’ve been thinking about just that as of late. Expensive hub is not made for it. I just printed out the instructions for adjusting the pads. We’ll see if I can depend on it then. Had to drag my feet to stop after the break in.
    Are yours hydraulic? Mine is an IRD dual banger?

    Almost ready, er, maybe not.

    I hear we'll be running the opposite direction on the track this time - brakes will be critical, not just top speed. Should be fun! Heat will play a part in the races too. 90's and more.

    Friday arrival ...see you then.

    Hi Brian
    I am kinda surprised that you are coming all those miles again.
    I will be there on Friday and will be great to see you and
    your bikes again. It wouldn't be the same without ya.... :)

    We are expecting some cool videos on that GoPro you won
    from KW Machine Works last race.

    Yep, we are running the track clockwise for the only time this
    year. Slightly downhill with maybe a tailwind in the afternoon finals.
    It's going to be a blast!
