Dickie, keep up the work and have blast man.
Jeff and Andy, come out to one of the GP events. Share what you have learned with the opportunities you guys have to get on tracks so often. Some of the people there will probably be stoked to get another perspective and the challenge on the track.
As far as the mopedGP events go, we get all sorts, just like with anything. There are always a few super competitive people who are giving their 100% and could maybe even benefit from a diet.
There's people like me, who really only do it to challenge my imagination with bikes. I am not really into "racing" and I help set one of the events up. But if I am not mistaken pros have very well paid mechanics and engineers behind their machines. For me it's just an excuse to try weird shit.
Ultimately there's something to engage in for anyone at the event I help with. People get serious, people have fun. Cool bikes show up.
If you like mopeds come out. If you like racing, come out. If you like just hanging out, come out.
Dickie, I am sure the dudes setting up the East event are stoked on your thread. Keep adding to it!
