It was indeed a blast, but it wasn't HardNox so it missed that closer personal touch. Nothing wrong with how the EMRA runs, it's just that Hx is like family to me. What was nice on Sunday was that there were no 5000 hp top fuel dragsters running to blow our eardrums out. I like them, but my ears are more sensitive now so that's a bit of a downer when they are running.
My Hx pals were all out in Oliver BC on the weekend and I didn't have the available time to attend such a long distance event. It's probably the premier track in Canada and I will get out there someday (gotta be soon since I'm not getting younger as the days fly by) but it is what it is. On a down side, two bikes were nicked right out of the paddock early Sunday morning: a super hot Ducati 998 and my friend Mike's R6 Yamaha. Mike is the guy I did my Intermediate check ride with a couple years back (after my race license certification) and he's like a (kid) brother to me. I think I feel almost as violated as he does over it. Hope they catch the creeps that did this and use some terrible form of punishment to show them the error of their ways. I wish I had a better pic of him riding, but somebody hogged the limelight the day of my test.
grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!
