  1. Trip Reports / Write-Ups
    As many of you know I enjoy flat track motorcycle racing. Every year the AMA has a National Championship for all amateur flat track racers. Usually it's in Springfield IL but this year it was in Ohio - just like me! So what else was there for me to do but ride up to see some racing. I rode up...

    As many members know, I enjoy the flat track races at the Allen county fairgrounds in Lima Ohio on an annual basis. I was a little worried when the Mees' took over but really the only thing that changed was that the former Nichole Cheza calls every year to ask if you want to renew your tickets...

    Okay, who is going to the Red Mile? It should be fun to see if Carver can beat Mees again, if the King of Cool can get another win, and if the Harleys make the main :whistling: Jimmy and I went last year, it's a good time. I'll be riding down from Cincinnati if anybody nearby wants to join...

    As per American Flat Track, Jamison Minor has succumbed to the injuries he suffered at Charlotte Saturday. He seemed to be a nice kid and was definitely a super smooth, very fast racer. Not sure what's going on with AMA Pro/American Flat Track but the last year and a half have been brutal...

    Went to the Lima round of the AMA Pro Flat track series on Saturday, now promoted by Mr. & Mrs. Jared Mees. It was good. They've been running this race on the last Saturday in June since I've been motorcycling and this may be the best one I've been to. It was a beautiful day and night and the...

    Okay, so the story is a little thin but it is from John Burns, a guy that knows what he's talking about. Over at motorcycle.com they've posted: What?! We didn’t know there was an Indian 750? The smallest engine Indian makes is the 60-incher (1000cc) that goes in the Scout 60. And yet, this...
