I'm excited (and somewhat apprehensive, since the clock is ticking) on finding a "new" steed to race in this years series. :thumbsup:

And he keeps saying he wants an EVO bike but everything he likes is LC and has a linkage rear suspension... Real men run drum brakes...

Planned on racing the YZ, but that project stalled and the RM was so much fun. Drum brakes just bring back bad memories !

Boy this thread took a turn. LOL
Suddenly Steve's manhood is in question. I guess that's the life of a retro class winner.

I think that's the natural progression. If you win retro you get bumped up to Evo. You win Evo you get bumped up to vintage. Eventually everyone will end up in the vintage class and that's what it's all about.

OMG I think I just suggested a rule change

Exactly. I started out in vintage racing at ACR on my 89 CR500 then after seeing the true vintage stuff hauling ass I knew I needed one so I ran out and bought my 73 CR250. Never looked back since.

Darrell, your onto something there! Course then what do Jeff and I do? Do we get a free pass to race Evo or Retro?

So the sidecar never made it on? That's a shame.

You never know Steve. But I doubt it.

You mean this project? I'm sure he has another up his sleeves.

Cary rode a 77? YZ400

Nate will have to chime in on what he wants on the list as he had a IT200 for the first half and a TT600 for the second half..
