    After two years of not competing, coupled with avoiding being "just" a spectator, I had some free time Friday night so I went up to NHMS on a whim.

    I was welcomed at the door and was instantly jacked for $25 for my meager 6 hour visit. It stung but I couldn't have given a shit less. Admittedly, I have dropped a whole bunch more cash than that on completely ridiculous stuff in the past....so the $25 was a drop in the bucket, if you will.

    Parked my 4Runner in front of North 10, got set up with bacon pizza from Brookside and a 6'er of Stella Artois and, when he arrived, helped DBConz get set up.

    After we meandred over to a fire where I met some folks I've never seen before and talked with other folks I've seen before.

    During my time catching up and talking with Brett and a few others, it dawned on me......I'm an idiot for living 30minutes from a race track and not racing.

    As people were wrapping up, I went home that night, walked straight to my basement and wrote the words "fix me!!" in the dust that had settled on the tank of my F4i then went to bed. Woke up way too early Saturday morning to be in Boscawen for 7am to pick up wood.

    As I was driving I thought about everything that was said and talked about around the fire the night before knowing there is no way I can reasonably expect myself to continue to ignore the passion that I have for motorcycles which had driven me to the point of competing.

    I have found that I am able to get around some of the concerns I have with certain things that have been implemented at LRRS in recent years so long as the goal of turning laps in achieved.


    That all said, many of you will be seeing my tail section in 2015.


    Thank...fucking...God! Glad you finally came to your senses. Welcome back.

    Oh, and I can't believe I missed you. I had to get tires for the truck. Maybe I'll catch up in October.

    So I guess there are other advantages to my season being a disaster :-P

    [shut up novice] I don't see any reason for you to do the basics course. Sign up for advanced and ask for a license evaluation. There's no reason for you to spend a weekend racing against me. None. Replace your effing water pump seal and get out there for October. [/shut up novice]
    If I weren't out of the country for the next 3 weekends I would have ordered it.

    That route works for me, Todd. Thank you.


    Jason - October is not in the cards as the bike and rider are nowhere near being in shape for racing.

    Rider? Shape?! I think I'm missing something here..

    You have a full 31 days including FOUR weekends. Bring it over. I have an open garage bay and sum tools. I'll give you a hand in exchange for advice on how to prep mine.

    bubba, you need more than a month to get your body in shape for racing. At least at Berg's pace.

    Awesome dude. I'll give you a ride to the track Round 1 next year in your old trailer.


    To be clear, both your bike AND you will be in the trailer.

    What town you live in? I am under 30 mins from the track myself.

    I think thats cool you are making a commitment to yourself to get back to the track next year!

    To be fair, round is considered by most to be the perfect geometric shape :-p

    Get out there and ride!

    Sorry you gotta take the floor. My niece already claimed the second biggest bedroom and a couple others have claimed to be moving in and there's only 1 more room and 1 couch. Recliner is mine so don't even think about it.

    I'm noticing, based on forum posts and conversation, that not much has changed in the last couple years with LRRS so, I know exactly what to expect going in.
    You will get your beer. My apologies...last year I did not make the effort to get over to NHMS.

    Still in Epsom.
    I think you and I had a conversation in your Intro thread where Black Hall Rd was mentioned...you have a friend up that way or something, IIRC?

    Re: bergs - 2014 LRRS - Round 6

    So, I think mumma B might have sensed this was coming.
    Many moons ago I was waaaaay deep into cross country mountain biking...so much so that my cycle was the preferred method of transportation for me until I was 18.
    Well, I held onto the last MB I bought, a green Univega Alpina 506....the last year of a the real Univegas (before Raleigh bought them), because I dumped far too much time and money into it but was set up perfectly for me, had all the right parts (Shimano XT and XTR goodies, Spin carbon wheel, Indy XC fork) and I clocked a ton of miles on it (rode 4 seasons until I decided to get my license). One of the more memorable rides was a trip from UNH Durham, NH to Hudson, NH that was completed in just over 3hrs total ride time. Biking was all I did and in short, I bought this bike, tore it down to the frame, dumped excessive amounts of money into it and never let it go.

    Fast forward to this past weekend when I was surprised with my old steed being tuned up! Timing for this could not have been more perfect as I am surrounded by trails that offer many levels of challenges as I build my strength up over the next several months.

    Ahh I remember now, Yeah my buddy lives on New Rye.

    If you read the Suncook Valley Sun newspaper they post locations for wednesday evening trail rides. My cousin tells me he meets up on occasion. I have yet to go to one, and actually my specialized mtb is still in pieces in a box from when I shipped it back home from Washington a couple years ago... lol
