Trackside today

Rode to the Zandvoort track to meet up with a mate who was riding his SP2 today and take some pictures.
It was 'KING hot (33C in the shade), but ATGATT





I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but GD!!! what are our SP's pretty....
(with a little help from Adobe even more....)

That is a transponder so lap times can be assigned;
and those with too noisy exhausts identified


Robert did get "black flagged" at the Assen track earlier this year when he went out with de db-killers removed. So he had to report to Race Control, sign a letter that if he got caught again today his track day was over.
So he re-fitted the killers..

I knew we were due for a Hot summer up here. We've gotten off easy the past 4 or 5 years. Oh well, believe it or not, July is actually a hotter month overall than August up here in NorCal. Not by much, but average daily temps are a hair lower for August. Plus, overnights are lower for the second half of August. Not much I know. But something to look forward to anyway. Nice bikes Dutchy! August is almost here, and I haven't even been on a ride yet! Taking Miss Piggy to town and back, is all I have been able to do lately.

2002 SP2
2005 750 Katana
2000 KX-500
1984 VT500 Ascot
1977 RD-400

Nice Old Harley you got there! Mind if I kick it over?

Your bike looks great! I’m 45 minutes from Road America if you’ve ever heard of the track. I hope to get there for a track day this fall otherwise it will be spring.
