    Cool Motorcycle racing.

    Anyone here follow or otherwise interested in it?

    I follow the american series (Motoamerica), MotoGP, and World Superbike. I might get a subscription to British superbike this year, but I have enough trouble keeping with what I follow already.

    This year, I'm the volunteer coordinator for the local racing group (Utah Sportbike Association), and I just found out yesterday that one of the perks of the position is that my entrance fees are waived for races. This means I get to race for free (for the record that's about $300/weekend for 6 rounds worth of perks). It also pays $30/hr, which is what I was planning to use to cover the race fees. So this means I can get more stuff for the race bike!

    Here's me in 2015 when I won a championship in WA.

    I'm pretty stoked. I thought I might only be able to afford to race 3-4 rounds this year. I think I'm going to even get an extra set of tires/wheels for racing on weekends when the weather is crap.

    Motorcycle racing is for pussies who need that extra wheel for *air quotes* stability. 200 cc unicycle is the only racing I recognize.

    I don't follow it much although I do enjoy watching the Isle of Man TT.

    I'm more into auto road racing. I sure miss the Speed channel.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Like Jimmy says, too many wheels.

    I watch (but don't "follow") some of the car series, like the Sportscar GT series and the Aussie Supercar series. I find Formula 1 snooze worthy most of the time.

    Looking forward to racing this year. With the fees waived, I will probably be making some minor upgrades to my bike. I'd like to sell it/trade it for something newer in the same class, but I doubt that will happen this year.
