I'm not talking about winning here. No one wins first time out. (Unless they have zero competition). And most of the uys who THINK they are fast out on the street discover they are nowhere on a race track.

But it's a small and exclusive club. With historic racing you can enter a fantastic family for very little money.

And even if you never win a thing, you can say, "Oh yeah, I raced."

It really is the journey.
I found most of it too political for my taste, I don't tolerate much BS.

I often consider getting back into some form of racing. Maybe when the youngest grandkids are a little older and if I'm not too old to ride hard still.

I mostly just looked to improve my own performance each time, if that puts me out front, fine, if not also fine.

Now that the sportster is a second bike, who knows!

Is that parts and labor?

I can attest to the integrity and experience of the shop. Pete Hill is a legend. Look him up.

I don't think he did the trans by that invoice. Never doubted Phil. It was done a few years ago as well.

Many ironheads I have done will get that much in parts.

They don't call me Ironhead Rick just because I'm hard headed
