Yeah, I have met Don, it has been a few years ago, didn't know he was mrmom9r ? Everybody hides behind their avatar? I was good friends with a lot of the old racers, like Bonnie Truett, Dave Campos, Boris Murray, Leo Payne, etc. Dave Campos is about the only one left still alive, I talk with him regularly. I still buy cams from Jim Leineweber. His cams helped get me in the eights!

I too would like to here what you have to say about your past experiences. I would think it takes quite a bit more effort to make an IH live in that one 1/4 mile pass, than to live in 50K of street miles.
As for the pissing contests, I say **ck them, only you know what you have done and what you have accomplished. Most on here probably have never even got teary eyed around a nitro burning bike or felt the ground shake around them, never even mind turning a wrench on them. I think it would be a real eye opener to what can be done.
Please share.
