Default Houston Peeps

     

Miles and I will be down for the weekend to do a little moto. We'll probably hit Skeeter's on Friday night (though I'm reluctant to give that bum my money). Then we'll either be at Highlands or Three Palms on Saturday. Might have some changes to the bike if my stuff comes in in time.

Let me know what's up.

Oh, and just thought I'd toss this in:

I'm not sure what our weekend plans are yet. We may be up for 3p's on Saturday. There's an EVO race at Splendy on Sunday that I'd like to give a whirl. Lucky they have modern support classes, otherwise I'd have to bum Howard's Maico..

Congrats on the job... That's actually very cool. I thought I saw you waving at us from the press box on Saturday.

Hah... you did see me waving at you. The guys really liked my report, so they told me that they'd throw me in as a contributing writer and probably send me to a few more races. I just have to fill out some paperwork and stuff. They also said that if they had any other work they needed done I was number one on the list. So it's a start...

Great work on the article!

The contacts you are creating, coupled with your education and hard work will ensure your success in pursuing a career in the industry.

BTW, think I could get an autograph before you get too big for the little folks?

So what's the deal guys? Are you the only one that's gonna come Charlene?

Steven might be able to come with us, so I'm stoked about that.

Only problem we might have is that they're having the TORC's race on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend, so the GP track is gonna be reserved. That's no biggy for me, but how do you feel about that Charlene? You gonna come stomp up the main track with Steven and me?

Shoot, I forgot about the TORCS race being there this weekend. I'll have to double check with my man and see what he wants to do. The main track isn't my favorite

Nope, sorry, I'll have to sit this one out. We've decided to take the day to get some stuff done around the house, planning on racing Sunday at Splendora.

Ya'll have fun and make sure someone takes some pics.

You missed out Charlene, it was fun.
The river track was really muddy at first..but a little later the dirt was awesome.

So much fun, I think I improved alot on my corners.
Awesome day.

Glad to hear you had a great time Steven!

It was a beautiful day and I sure would have rather been at the track. I guess I'll just have to hope tomorrow is just as nice.

You guys get any pics?

Yea... I gave a few of the berms a piece of my mind. I'll be in Houston this weekend but I'm dropping my stuff off at EBR, so I won't be riding. Plus my sister's gonna be down there so I'll be spending time with her.

Skeeters sucked as usual. They broke their water pipes so the track is bone dry and dusty as hell.
