    HAHAHAHAHAHA.........let's get it straight, correct, and no mistakes here.
    I won the China 2 stroke
    And, I won the Trophy Dash 'ultimate race'
    1 bike and 1 racer, won 2 different finals

    Doesn't someone have to show up to a race to defend their win, #1 plate?

    If the trophy dash, 'ultimate race' is not a priority why bother having it?

    LOL, Yes you won and congratulations for 2 well deserved
    victories. More than a few riders learned the hard lesson
    that you have to finish to win!

    What is your hurry? You have 86 days to make up a #1 plate
    before the next race. lol
    Please read carefully, I never said that you weren't getting the
    # 1 plate, just that the above named board would make a decision
    soon.
    I wouldn't want anyone to think that I was running some kind
    of evil dictatorship.....LOL

    Hey magrider, please gimme a call sometime. I don't understand your post edit.

    There are a couple of issues I want to discuss with you.

    In prep I've bin mod-ing the motor and have lost weight so I'm hopping to make a good show, last time 4th in my heat but blew the 10t key and could not run in any more races so you know I'm chomping at the bit for this event looking foreword to seeing all you there.

    I am really pleased that magrider and Pablo have agreed to be
    on the SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing board.
    I had a long conversation with magrider about some basic rules
    for the next race.
    Still have a few things to work out but we will be announcing them
    soon so you know what guidelines to build your race bikes to.

    The current SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing board members are:
    agk
    BigBoy
    magrider
    MotorBicycleRacing
    msrfan
    Pablo
    Samford&Son
    Strotter
    SoSauty (eBike advisor)

    Let it be noted that bairdco is not a member just so there
    is no confusion.

    We are continuing in the direction that any rules will be simple
    and mainly to keep racing fun, affordable and safe.

    Rules will only be instituted as needed.

    There will be no association fees charged to race at any
    SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing event.

    no, i'm not a member. thanks for clearing that up.

    it's a lot less hassle to just build a bike and race it, instead of butting heads over our different opinions, so that's my plan.

    i hope my involvement in any other racing orginizations won't affect my ability to race in yours. my intention is to compete on the track, not on the forum, not on the phone, and not in anything else.

    i just wanna race and see it progress in a positive way.

    Congratulations to magrider for winning the Ultimate Race at Willow
    Springs on June 18th and for not being afraid of having the #1 plate
    on his bike at the upcoming Oct 22nd race! lol

    Of course magrider gets to keep his #8 plate as well.

    A new tradition has been established that whoever wins the Ultimate
    Race of all the classes gets to claim the #1 plate.

    Hi Dave, only 84 days to go! LOL

    There are only very simple rules for the 2 stroke Chinese engine
    kit class and the 50 cc and under 4 stroke class.
    Unlimited engine modifications are allowed and shift kits too.

    1) Must have fully functioning pedals.
    2) No motorcycle tires. ( This will be defined more )
    3) No multi-speed motorcycle type motors.

    so yes you can run any kind of fuel that you want for the next race.

    magrider and I had a great chat today and one of the agreements we
    came to was that we did not want to stifle innovation with restrictive rules.

    scotto- wanted to be involved in setting the direction of
    Motor Bicycle Racing in Southern California so;

    The current SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing board members are:

    agk (Sponsor)
    BigBoy
    magrider
    MotorBicycleRacing
    msrfan
    Pablo (Sponsor)
    Samford&Son
    scotto-
    Strotter
    SoSauty (eBike advisor)

    PS: I wanted to clarify that if you show up with a motor bicycle that
    has motorcycle tires or a multi-speed motorcycle engine or is outside
    of the few rules in any way you will be in the Unlimited Class.
    You still must have functioning pedals.

    The Unlimited Class will be not be racing in the Ultimate Race which
    is all the 5 classes competing against each other at the end of the day.

    The only two bikes at the Willow Springs race that would be in the
    Unlimited Class this next race is #81 agk's 20hp 4 stroke and #100
    liveforphysic's eBike with the motorcycle tires.

    Hi MaxPower

    I gave you # 43 and your 33cc Robin Subaru would be in the
    50cc 4 Stroke Class. Should be interesting to see what that
    Staton crank shift kit does for your performance.

    There are a few 35cc 4 Strokes so there is a sub class for you guys.

    I will be starting a Carpool thread and I hope you can make the race.

    You got lucky #48 lol
    There is a nice showing of 4 Stroke Briggs 5hp and similar bikes.

    You would be in a Mid Class between the < 50cc 4 Stroke Class
    and the < 11 hp Class.
    Not sure what to call it yet and all the types that it will include.

    Only 82 days to go!

    STTARS Supermoto are racing on Oct 23rd which is the Sunday
    after our first SoCal Motor Bicycle Race at the Grange Track.

    Check out this video of STTARS 2006 Winter Series at the
    Grange Race Track on which we will be racing;
    http://www.grangeracetrack.com/video/STTARS winter series 2006.mov

    Note that there is a dirt section with jumps in the course that you can see
    in the pics in the post above.

    I am going to be camping Saturday night and staying to watch the action
    on Sunday.
    This new track is going to be way more challenging than the Willow Springs
    go kart track and a lot more fun.

    I was informed yesterday that I've been suspended from the prestigious SoCal Motorbicycle Racing Association due to my suspected involvement in an as yet undetermined and unofficial rival association that doesn't even exist yet.

    my number (33) is officially in "limbo" so I'm retiring it. if anyone wants it, I'll send you my custom aluminum number plate, free of charge.

    if you want to race me, I'll be on the streets. :)

    That is not true and is not what I said to you on our phone conversation.
    You are twisting what I said and you know it.

    I have been sitting back watching the post pop up and just can’t imagine what you are trying to achieve by the comments you are posting. Can I ask Why?

    You are forcing people to second guess you as a race organizer. Me for one.

    I personally think this needs to stop, the past is the past.

    If you need volunteers start a list and see who is willing to help and what they can offer. I am willing help.

    BUT:

    If this continues the way it is going I will withdraw myself, my kids and tell the rest of my local riders what a joke this racing is…with its present organizer.
