Don't I know it. President Slacker is motivated to generate some bling for us!

It's been a crazy 2019. I spent a lot of energy, wrenching and cash on Ice Racing this winter, with the AMA and Wisconsin area racers on several lakes north of Milwaukee. Then I went to Cornerspin racing school in North Carolina to learn how to back in the rear end in on the ice and learn to corner a bit differently than one would road racing. Its a camp where you are expected to go to the limits or traction small 100-125cc dirtbikes with street tires on them on a tight GP all dirt course. I had two mishaps grabbing the front brake too hard during drills and really bruised up my ribs and hands going through the front door. A couple of outings in the woods several weeks after and I was finally not in rib pain anymore. The bruises were epic. My three Laverdas are all in a state of panic due to the new to me 2004 300 CC GasGas 2 stroke showing up last fall. But they are happy to go on short rides, and now all are in need of some repair, repaint and other replacement parts due to ragging them out for a bunch of years, and my triple is still getting a going over with our pal Mr "AIG" Colbert. I travel a bunch now for work and he's a good man to take that on for me. I also picked up a 1994 KX 125 to use on the ice but I haven't pulled it apart yet, it was a barn find, got it for nothing, so it will be a money pit for sure.

The NALOC sticker comps showed up, looked nasty due to my file sizes not being at the right resolution for the screen. 4 weeks to find that out, rats. My family and I are off to a long stay at the family cabin in the woods today, I will re shoot the tank badges and get the stickers reordered over the weekend.

Hope all of you are having a blast on your bikes, enjoying pleasing outings with friends and family, and enjoying the lives you've made for your selves.

Cheers and happy riding,
Bob

We really should have a better President, right?

Nobody in Australia has a cabin in the woods. Although they might have a shack in the bush or a humpy in the scrub.  :D
