one thing i love about motorcycle racing is the fact that there is such thing as too much power. riding is all about finding a balance (no pun intended)

-only 75 daze away...

-the Peruvian government has declined to host stages for this years' DAKAR because of El-Niņo, which hasn't happened yet...but could bring historic rainfall to the region later in the month, after the race has been finished.

I remember when we first got true digital cable in the late 90's... Wood always catch the Speed channel playing those races all day long.
