Title: Thank You
Post by: plain1984 on December 02, 2019, 04:42:25 AM
Thanks to John Allen and all of the PRE staff for all of the behind the scenes work done for all of us. I can only imagine the time it takes to get these things all together.  I had a great time this year riding with you all and am glad I got back into track days with PRE.  Very excited for next year.  Thanks once again, John.

P.S.:  Damn, March seems like a long ways out.  I did some bike maintenance the other day and that seemed to make the waiting even worse.  I might try watching some racing on tv.

I don't dare mention this as people think I am crazy when I start talking about this game/sim racing as a training tool

You're welcome John, and March will be here before we know it. And thank you for helping out with the airfence this year. That is something I really appreciate. :thumbup:

Yep, this is an awesome family with which to ride, for sure.
The off season is painfully long, and Kyle’s right that nothing compares to the on track stuff, but a little street ride here and there and watching Isle of Man TT reviews helps me suffer through it (I’d LOVE to get the TT game that came out last year or so, but I don’t have a console and would suck at using the game controller anyway). I just bought and downloaded the Classic TT reviews from the last two years, so that’ll be some races I haven’t already seen. I could maybe watch some Moto2 races, too; missed most of those.

Thanks for all of the suggestions.  Dirt bike for the win.  The more I think about it the more I like the idea.  Happy Holidays to everyone.

A motogp video pass helps ease the winter blues.  There is nothing like going back to the early 2000's watching Rossi's brilliance. Reliving Nicky's rise to world champion. The Rossi/Giberneau/Biaggi battles are a must watch

A new dirt bike is on my list for on/off season riding as well.

Ruhe, the poor video quality is stunning! How did we bring ourselves to watch!

Just watched Assen 2002 last night... very cool seeing the two and four strokes battle it out.

Thanks for coming out and riding with us this season!


A dirt bike can definitely help the off season a little more bearable.

Look forward to riding with you in the spring

Alright, ... alright...  I broke down and bought a Grom to see what all the fuss was about.  It is fun as hell on the street.  Thought I could use it to commute to work and teach the wife to ride.  Damn thing is sucking money out of the parts budget.  The neighbors are probably now certain that I need to be committed.  Why is a 52 year old man out on the street practicing wheelies on a mini bike at 11 o’clock at night.   To hell with it.  The friggin thing is fun.

I hope to join you guys if you are running these types of bikes at some tracks this year.  Appreciate the advice and “guidance”.  Best wishes, John.

Chalk what do you want for the crf150f sm?   Price on 150r also.  I’m looking for a small bike to do some training on.
