Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Jake Weimer won the 250f's followed by Ryan Morais who made a late race charge nut never was really a threat.  Dungey led for 15 laps before being passed by Stewart who looked like he was just cruising and being patient, he had more speed in reserve.  Windham was 3rd, pretty good for the "old guy" in the field.  Anyone else following the series ?  Anyone even care ??  haha I'll post results from each round if there is an interest 8) See ya, Bill

Bill
I have to say I envy you and your fine collection of bikes.  It is quite difficult to find somewhere to ride here in the uk (midlands area).  I have tried green laning but most of the other countryside users hate bikers and are straight on the phone to the police, even though we are riding quite legally.  I had a section 59 (next time caught have bike confiscated and crushed) issued a couple of years back after being hunted down with a police helicopter for riding on some waste land miles away from any houses etc.  Anyway, back to the super cross.  I have satellite TV, but have not found any racing being shown as yet, Iím sure weíll get it eventually. Watched the FIM motorcross championship from Italy on Saturday (not sure how old that round was).
I have now given up riding dirt bikes and just ride a Yamaha R1 on the road, but with the amount of speed camera popping up everywhere, its only a matter of time before I hang the boots up for good (after 34 years). Perhaps I should move to the USA (Iím sure the better weather would suit me as well as the amount of riding opportunities available).
Keep posting the pictures, thereíre great.

Hey Larry & Gazza, thanks for the kind words, I feel very lucky to live in southern ca. and be able to ride year round.  Larry I hope you find the time to get that Norton.  I race motocross with an over 40 MX club called the Oldtimers, the have 40, 50, 60, 70, and 80 year old classes.
Anyone who is 80 and still racing gets a free membership and the class is called "80 Expert", no matter how slow you are haha. Right now there are 3 guys over 80 that still race on a regular basis, one guy has 2 fake knees and another has a thr. They say their Dr.s tell them there out of there minds, but why quit now you made it this far :o They are inspirational to say the least...

Gazza, Section 59 ? your bike confiscated and crushed ?  Oh man thats cold blooded right there what a heartless bunch of bastards your cops must be, ouch !!   I thought they were cracking down around here, guess its not so bad. You'd think they have better things to do with a helicopter... Sounds like maybe renting a bike is a good idea for you, just in case you get caught again :D,

SX Round 2 was in arizona. Weimer won the 250 class with Morais in 2nd just like last week.  The 450 class had some drama, Reed and Stewart got together and both went down, Reed is out for who knows how long with a hand injury, and Stewart (who was landed on in his heat race and had to ride the last chance qualifier) was near the back of the pack and went into the pits after the race to confront Reed and pushed his bike off the stand....hahaha too funny, I love rivalries!!
Ryan Dungey got his 1st win in the 450 class and took over the points lead. Next week they're back at Anaheim. It looks to be a mud race since its supposed to rain here all week. Were going back the desert that weekend, hoping it rains during the week out there and clears up for us on the weekend. I'll try to get some more riding pictures. See Ya in cyberspace, Bill
