A race where a HD gets first place is a race where only HD compete.
See how awesome they handle in the corners?

Actually, Harley XR750's have long been VERY successful ar flat track racing.

I thought the guy on the FLH (dresser) who led 3 laps did an admirable job, as did the guy with the chopper.

They reminded me of the bull runs in Pamplona the way they drift around the corners: The chopper dude was wild. I think rather than the Millwaukee Motorcycle Company, it's the Millwaukee Brewers who should be given the credit for the interesting races though.

Yeah, must be in one of those nanny countries, you know the sort, the ones that pass laws telling you where and when you can do simple stuff like cross the street.

I think my scoot could have beat them. What's up with the hootin and hollering? They reached a top speed of 45?
