Maybe we can hit 50mph.

But I bet Dog wins. With or without the gravy boat.

When I saw the title, I thought it was a new oxymoron entry, like jumbo shrimp or military intelligence....

I thought the guy that won did an admirable job. It was a short track with very little opportunity to pass and the guy in the lead most of the race had a big bagger the size of a truck which made passing even harder.

To see the winner hang the back end out like that on every corner and then end up passing on the outside at the end was pretty impressive. Regardless of the bike, that guy had some skills.

It was an exciting, interesting race with more competition and suspense than some MotoGP's Ive watched.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid

Sign me up! Is it okay if I wear my racing leathers and full-face helmet though?

Full helmet okay, but we'll have to tall about the racing leathers. I mean I'm thinking the whole point is to actually not look like we know what we are doing!
