There are always people who pop-in that present in a manner that, well quite frankly does not fit within a forum, some stay despite the perceptions and others move on, few hang around purely to try to attack an individual or to try to 'destroy' the ambience of the forum.

Sounds like this could be an interesting place to hang out and learn a bit more about the world of motorcycle racing....and karts

It won't. As others have said, it gets feisty here sometimes, usually flame wars from trolls who have been butthurt in the past under different alias' and sole intention is to troll. Most of the time we don't bite, but in this case I had to set the record straight.

Thanks, I certainly enjoy it. The problem is most in the know thing karts are like the rental ones at your local theme park. The gearbox (or shifter in the US) classes I run in are mental, with speeds of up to 150mph.

I've owned many, many karts. I still have my first first one hanging on my garage wall. I sold my 250 superkart some time ago as it just became too much to maintain so I stepped back down to 125, here is my current baby:

He built the frame himself and it had twin Tecumsa engines, and was seriously fast for the time. In '88 I went down to Daytona to crew for a buddy of mine who raced AMA Camel Pro in the Daytona 200. We were pitted right next to Mike Baldwin a fellow AAMRR racer. At night to blow off steam we would go to the local Go Kart track, and there were on any night, a bunch of top guys like John Bettencourt, Wes Cooley and other serious pros. A lot of fun.
Not sure if he still does, but for many years Wayne ran 250 superkart at 'Guna and was seriously quick!

As for karts, the only experience I have is at an indoor facility near where I live, very quick circuit but tight and twisty. Fun as hell but I'd love to get out on a real track. I'd be slow as hell but hey, it's still fun.
Do it sometime, there are plenty of places outdoor you can rent. If you love bikes you'll love it. Whereabouts in the US re you?

!0K is an annual track day budget.
The reason why power wheel racing is so cheap, is because it's for kids.
You need to grow up, get an adult job so you can afford to race with adults.
Besides, if you were half as good as you claim, than you could get sponsorship and be able to afford to race a real series.
I think you just like to follow kids around, and bump their rear
Gee, why didn't I think of that?

Still failed to answer the question as to why YOU aren't in MotoGP btw.

I'm done, I proved your troll status, so back to being blocked you go.

If he scoffed at you doing track days in the past encounters to which you have referred you may have a point, but I donít recall him doing so in advance of you denigrating him in your current incarnation.
Thanks Mike, appreciated. Always have time for you as you know.

I have a school friend, among a group of such friends who bonded in junior high school because we were rev heads, who has found a niche in drag racing where he can be competitive and is still competing in late middle age, and more power to him I have always thought. He also has a beautiful Yamaha RD 400 he has painstakingly restored.
Exactly. I'm still racing 25 yrs later, none of the kids I started with at my club are and apart from a few who had the finance to make it to F1, very few of the kids I raced with nationally are still doing it. I know one thing for sure, I'm still enjoying it, unlike them.

Hopefully things will soon settle down. If you look at all other conversations ongoing, youíll see that they are civil and in the main, friendly.
My apologies, I kind of flared this up by taking the troll bait. I don't normally but sometimes you have to draw a line and take a stand.

Actually I do have multiple sponsors, but not giving a troll like you the opportunity to Google them and find out who I am.

That photo is during a shakedown test prior to my proper livery as I am a supported Tonykart driver.

Keep trying trackday boy.

Over time you start to notice the common theme with trolls is trying to shame people. Took me a while to get that. Then, it hit me, if you have nothing to be ashamed of, trolls have no way to get under your skin.
