Yesterday Dwight, Trilby, Jay, Elaine, Martha, Scott and myself went to the Suzuki Big Kahuna's race at the VIR track in Virginia. The rain held off even though it was hotter than S$%^. [/emoticons/emotion-6.gif]

We met for breakfast at Mc Donalds and then headed off for the track. I guess it took somewhere around an 1 1/2 or so to get there. We had a blast on the way up and back. Martha is a wild woman! Darting in and out of traffic and pushing speeds in the double digits at times.[:0] We had a ball just trying to keep up with her!

The ride was very scenic and took us through some beautiful country. Very hilly with lots of old barns and fences outlining the landscape. The track itself was nice too.

We watched qualifying, walked around the place to check it out and then decided to go into town for some grub. Someone turned us onto a killer pizza joint. It was in a small down just up the road and reminded me of some place out of the past. It was old and somewhat small but the service was good and the pizza was off the hook! Oh and the beer was cold too. That counts for something, right? [/emoticons/emotion-5.gif] Dwight kept flashing his **** at everyone that rode bye. I think I'd wreck if he did that to me. Must have been the beer.[/emoticons/emotion-5.gif]

After getting our bellys full we headed back to the track just in time to catch the first of two races. The action was as hot as the temperature. Man those guys can ride! I'd love to get out on the track and have a go at it on an R1! Scott says once you ride a sort bike on a track like that you don't ever want to ride on the highway again. I can imagine how cool it must be to run wide open and not have to worry about oncoming traffic or some idiot pulling out in front of you.

When the race ended a couple of guys on sportbikes put on a stunt show. If you've seen one you've seen 'em all but we watched it anyway.

Then we mounted up and headed home, after Martha found her bike that is. It seems someone had taken the liberty to relocate it for her since she left the steering unlocked.

It was getting late by the time I arrived at home and cool but it was a welcome relief from the days heat.

Anyway, we had a blast and I look forward to doing it again next year.

Here are some pics. Hope you enjoy them.[/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
