I know of two guys here in Tucson who are planning to participate: a Helix in the 250cc class and a patchwork Granturismo in the 200cc class. I'm helping sort out the latter's gremlins so that it can make a brave attempt at finishing.

At least you can ask here without getting downvoted, unlike that other site. I realize that Alan Spears isn't exactly known for being genial, but at least he's hosting events.
At what point does a hobby become an addiction? I'm uncertain, but after the twelfth scooter, it sorta feels like the latter...

Seriously...I've lost count...

Seven mopeds ...that's still manageable...

3rd Salton Sea T.T. 320-Mile X-Treme Endurance Race

Eric,

Thanx for not deleting my registration.

The 3rd Salton Sea T.T. was a helluva lot of fun. Here's the link to the San Diego Union Tribune article by Photo-journalist Joe Michaud:

He attended pre and post race functions, and rode the event on his motorcycle.

There was some extremely close racing.[/img]
