Hi everyone,

As the last step of my recovery, which many of you helped and inspired me, especially that cranked-up roller-guy, I have entered my 750-F1 for the June 15 Loudon Road Race Series new P89 Lite class. I haven't raced in 16 years so I'm entered as a Amateur. Like others, I want to support the new class. It's not IOM but oh well.

Here is a picture from a recent shake-down test.
Rich

p.s. pantah-goodie lets go

Hi Rich,
I'll be there. Your bike looks great.......maybe too great. Is that very shinny paint some illegal high tech super slippery stuff? You know I'm aware you old AMA BOTT racers were notorious cheaters, right?

Rich:

The bike looks fabulous! And it's remarkable that you're able to go back out into battle with it after the stuff you've been through.

I'm looking forward to pics and a full report from both of you guys after the event.

Regards,

Yes Rich, in all seriousness, your bike is looking beautiful and I'm really looking forward to you being there. Don't forget our races are on Friday this time around. My novice race is the one right after your P89, so I'll try and watch as much of it as I can. See you on the 15th.
Bill

Hi guys,
Thanks for your encouragement. The shiny paint is special anti-mass type applied just like the body treatment. And they said I wasn't a 250GP rider. Those other AMA-BOTT guys were all cheaters but not me of course. I'm gonna do the Thursday Penquin day before the Friday race day.

Happy to report Rich had a successful return to racing after a 17 year hiatus. Not only did he compete but showed some of those modern bike riders the fast way around! Who says old bike and riders are slow! Also of note our own Bill (Pantah-goodie) also had a great outing significantly improving on his lap times with the TT and looking to advance to Amateur status. Well done gentleman!

Hi Guys, I agree with Steve. Glad to see you out there, we all know how much work it is to get those bikes and our old bodies ready for the track. The bikes look great and you kept the shiny side up! Lou
