    Yeah, the sliderule site was taken down a while ago. Chris, Paul, Graham and I stopped racing regularly, so it made sense to let it go.

    Thumbs up Re: Slideruleracing.com gone?

    I think it was my PM on SBN that instigated this post? Thanks a lot. Looks tricky. I'm just gonna do the hose clamp on the oil filter. Thanks for such a great response to a total stranger's question!

    Graham's a great guy, not so sure I'd call him a 'regular guy' though....
    He has a lot more fun during his week / month / year than us 'regular' guys.

    Re: Slideruleracing.com gone?

    Speaking of which... Those sliderule days were some crazy times. We had a loose affiliation that owned the entire lenght of the fence along start/finish. It was a loud, but exciting place to pit.

    Tony's set-up and bike had me in awe. We raced ratbikes that made the EX crew today look like showbikes! My first EX was hideous. 16' bias ply tires, and bodywork held together with steel mesh and safety wire. The Yoos race a series of incredible ratbikes, culminating with that nasty 400. I remember them rebuilding that motor one rainy night out on the pavement and racing it the next afternoon. It had ingested a healthy mouthfull of T6 gravel in one of their countless crashes.

    Speaking of crashes, do you remember how often those guys went down?! Like 3 times a weekend. Their method was to latch onto a faster rider til they crashed, or finally passed him.

    Ken had an infamous series of crashes, promptly followed by my 3500 dollar EX crash fest!

    We felt like we owned the place back then. I rollerbladed the track, skateboarded it, ran it, walked it, biked it. I learned every crack and crevice that way.

    Those were the days...

    That video you made on a 125 was insane, it gave me a whole new outlook as to how fast you can go in the bowl!

    Yes, indeed. My RD400 was a magnet for fallen riders in front of me. And the Yoo brothers were something to see, for sure.

    Here are two photos. One with Paul, Chris, and me lining up for pre-grid before a race. The other is of Chris' and my bikes during Penguin School. Jack stand is vintage race spec.

    You can see the EZ-ups in the pre-grid photo lining the fence along with Tony's Maxima canopy.

    We actually had four Maxima canopies at one point--tony had two i had the other two. we sort of bookended the crew. Lots of people don't remember lots of other lost racers such as Andy Rigo, Mike Haggerty, and Paul Gilbert. Don't forget that Gus used to be part of the original fence gang on his Aprilia.
