    Feeling nostalgic? Come on in!

    Recently I was looking for a specific picture from ages ago and ended up taking a trip down memory lane...couple that with a PM exchange with a forum member a few months ago mentioning the days of BoMo and I guess it was time to put a little picture show together.

    In no particular order:

    I'd put this pic well within the top 5 of my favorite motorcycle-related pics. Some may know who these two riders are, I leave the others to guess.

    Ye olde racing bike. My trusty 2002 F4i. Thing was bone stock minus suspension so I had plenty of incentive to find corner speed as my skillset progressed.

    The day I picked up a new Ducati Hyper. Still have that bike, actually.

    The coldest temp I ever rode in. My 2003 FZ1 (and for the record, the nickname of that color scheme was known as the "Bee"...NOT the "Kenny Roberts special")

    A member on this forum managed to somehow park their bike between T2 and T5. If I remember the story correctly, there was a cameraman and a wheelie involved. This was the result.

    Dang I miss that bike! Only vehicle I bought brandy new...had 4 miles on it when purchased then kissed it goodbye at VIR 45,000 miles later.

    I lunched the transmission on my Honder so ScottieDucati kindly offered his Duc 800SS. Coming from inline 4's, I had a lot of trouble getting my brain to understand that those twins max out at 5k RPM. Still, it was fun to cruise around on that for a couple races.

    My good friend Eric warming up some knee pucks at the Hooksett ice rink. Between the book "Total Control", my good friend Eric and that parking lot, I would learn there first what it was like to drag a knee.

    I worked with Jake at my first job...Hudson Cycle Center. Knew him for years until we had a disagreement and stopped talking. I learned last year that he'd passed away several years ago...had me wishing I took the steps to patch things up. RIP Jake man!

    How the Butcher was born. Picture edit courtesy of Trick Mike. Racing in HW, this little incident was a bit unsettling to me at the time because there was a group of 3 or 4 racers that were known to possibly bump people out of the way during a race. Being a Novice, the last thing I wanted was to be lumped in with that group so of course someone happens to catch 3 frames of a pass I was setting up for in T10 however rider 289 made a mistake in T9 so I went for it. Thankfully no one crashed out.




    Be awesome to see the memories from other members here so, post 'em up!!

    I see your T9 and raise you one with a Boston Moto suit. Note the logo above the knee
