Yep, the weather goes to crap very shortly. Oh well, at least we had a loooooong riding season! Too bad a lot of it was almost 100 degrees. How's a bruthuh gonna ride a motorpickle in full leathers in 98 degree heat?!??! I know what you're thinking,I should ride without leathers and I'd be cooler. I've felt the asphalt, no way.
There are few things I have come to regret in this lifetime. Among them is my decision to not join the military when I was younger. I have grown to realize that our military is filled with some of the most impressive people I've ever known. Please know that we, the citizens of this blessed country, admire and love you. You are our heroes. Thank for your shining example of how a life should be lived.
I race my motorcycle (turbocharged Suzuki Hayabusa) at standing-mile events across the country (www.texasmile.com). I've gone a little over 200 mph, but now I want to go 225+. The bike is undergoing some pretty serious upgrades over the next couple of months to get it done. It produces 322 hp in its current form, but the plan is to kick that up to about 500 hp.
We'll be installing a secondary fuel system, an air-to-water intercooler, methanol injection and various other tricks. I'll keep you updated!
It's official. I can't wait to see how this works for them! Wow, ballzy move.
It's an Indian Summer! No, I'm not talking about Harley-Davidson's latest ballbreaking announcement, I'm talking about this gorgeous weather! I've been able to get on the bike almost everyday. I slammed through a few gears before coming to the Rock Penthouse today. I have to exercise some restraint, however. An improperly-placed deer could really mess up my day. Not to mention the WABX airwaves would get reaaaally quiet at 2 pm. lol
We got up early on Sunday morning and made our way to the track, which is a military landing strip in Goliad, Texas. Bill is the kind of guy who likes to make a pass early, before the wind kicks up and the heat becomes oppressive. My cousin and I walked to the MPH board, which is close to the finish line. Many people were leaving and beginning their long trip back home. Suddenly, in the distance, a howl erupted. I focused my digital camera and strained my eyes to see the bike almost a mile away. It began as a small dot and quickly became a blurry bullet.
The SWIRCA & More Southern Indiana Brewery, Winery and Spirits Festival is SATURDAY NIGHT, August 21st, 2010! This will be my third year as Master of Ceremonies and I can't wait! Music will be provided by Better Than Nuthin', plus there will be over 100 brewers/beer crafters, wineries and makers of distilled spirits. There's also A LOT of food of different types for everyone! It's indoor (cold A/C!) and outdoor, so don't let bad weather talk you out of showing up! It's an awesome time. Call SWIRCA & More for more details.
Last year, with the help of Action Cycle and lots of friends and companies across the country, I rode my turbocharged Suzuki Hayabusa at The Texas Mile in Goliad, Texas, where I acheived a top speed of 200.917 mph in a standing-start mile. It was a huge accomplishment for me, but I want to go faster now. I am going for 225 mph at The Miami Mile this winter. Preparation has already begun. The bike already makes 322 hp, but that will be kicked up to about 500 before the race. There are many changes planned.
The Motorcycle Song
words and music by Arlo Guthrie
I don't want a pickle
Just want to ride on my motorsickle
And I don't want a tickle
'Cause I'd rather ride on my motorsickle
And I don't want to die
Just want to ride on my motorcy...cle
It was late last night the other day
I thought I'd go up and see Ray
So l went up and I saw Ray
There was only one thing Ray could say, was:
CBS News just released a list of the nastiest hotels in the country...and why! Holy CRAP!
