Back in the day... Mid 80s to mid 90s I did the Canadian Battle of the Twins. Heavily modified RZ350 which was prone to blowing up every half dozen races or so!!! Now just track days and road ridin'... Racing sailboats now. Totally different pace but the emotions are the same!!

I do however have a goal to race a bit of speedway again before i die ( maybe I can find an old codgers league or something.?) ......... bugger the anxiety speedway is just so fun. Not sure I could last 4 laps these days though When folk ask if i still race these days I say "no, I can't find a track with a motel on every corner"



Still ride profusely, much on road and much bush (tight, hard, steep, rugged type bush and some wide open dirt roads ).



Refuse to do a track day ....... too frustrating, you go on a track to go as fast as you can, and they seem to frown on that at track days and want you to just cruise around in a single line ...... I don't think I'd get it .



I'd also strangely love to race minimotos ..... have one but never went through with racing it.
Sniff sniff, what's that smell?? Oh it's BULLSHIT "Thought of making a comeback when invited" my arse.
