Man, I miss it too. I wouldn't take anything for my wife and kids but I miss the days of no responsibility and only worrying about when I'm going to replace my back tire. All I did was work out and ride on the weekend. Now, all I do is work and pay bills.

Snapper man, there is a difference in a stock publicly available busa and a road race bike. And actually, there are very few or zero stock bikes that can run with the busa for what it was made to do. 90mph without shifting the bike is pretty impressive and the fact that they limited the power bikes make to the public says more.
Punt, buy a ranger, champion, or bass cat before you buy another skeeter.

When I head home this week for Christmas break from college and I head to the indoor mx track, I'll get some video and post it up. And yeah I basically do all the bike work, that includes my brothers's 85s as well.

I'm guessin the Suz is you? ha

Here some pics from over the years. They're from a bunch of different tracks.

The reason I don't have any from 04 and 05 is because I dislocated and broke my right shoulder in May of 04 and only raced a couple times that year after I healed and I didn't race much in 05 just because I wasn't all that into it because of my injury, but I came back strong in 06.

2003 back on 65s, man I sure miss those days!


2006 back on 85s


2006


2007

Railin in that second pic!! And can you say, I've done a very similar thing in the first pic? haha.

How'd you crash?

When I broke my shoulder it was muddy and I went off the face of 75 ft table absolutely pinned on my 85 and cross rutted off the face and couldnt bring it back for landing so I landed sideways and hit the ground hard. Dislocated my shoulder into my back and cracked the humorous and got knocked out for a few seconds until a track employee came over and woke me up and brought me to the ambulence. Had my arm immobilized for 2 weeks in a brace with my arm at a 45 degree angle with my torso, then got moved to a sling, couldn't ride until the end of july and I was very tenative. To this day I can't though a baseball more than twice without my shoulder hurting for a couple days.

Yeah mx is dangerous ha. And my friends wonder why I'm a cautious rider after that crash....

And oh yeah I race C class. Top 10 every race pretty much, staying in C for 2010 and we'll see how this season goes, I probly won't go to B until 2011 or even 2012, because I'm slowing down on the racing and focusing on work and school. I'll be able to pick it back up more in a few years after college.
