    just about perfect out in the desert.

    Only 32 days to the next SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing Extravaganza

    The weather on Saturday Oct 20th will be absolutely
    gorgeous out at Grange. Average temperature is about 80*
    I love it out there in the desert at that time of year. We
    got the whole track to ourselves and at night it's just us
    and the stars. No neighbors to worry about.

    The hot tip is to arrive on Friday and camp overnight and
    I will get you on the track at 7 am Sat to practice or just
    cruise around if that is your preferred speed. :)

    AirEd serves hot coffee out of his RV to all the racers at 6 am
    Thank You Ed!!! :) Please donate a buck or two to cover
    his costs.

    Heats start at 10.15am right after the riders meeting.

    Yes, there will be an entry level class for any newbie track
    riders or if you just want to try it out with no pressure.

    On Friday we get to play and party with a smaller group of
    early arrivals. BigBoyCycles, Nashmoto, SoSauty, scotto,
    AirEd, Piston Bikes Crew,the Arrow Motorized Cycles wrecking
    crew and more will all be there.
    Even The Aleman is promising that he will be there. :D

    Come on out and make a weekend of it cause I got some very
    fun plans for Sunday too.

    3 days to the SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing extravaganza.

    Everyone who has been to the last 3 Grange races knows that
    Jim Granger takes orders for pizza and delivers them to the track
    for lunch.
    Jim has been working on opening his own pizza restaurant for the
    last 3 years due to the difficulty of opening a business in CA.

    Finally, Cross Eyed Cow Pizza has opened so Jim will be taking orders
    from the full menu and delivering to the track.

    Every spectator and track rider will be entered into a raffle for a free
    lunch that will be drawn at about 11am.

    Large 16" gourmet pizza [enough for 4], four drinks, garlic bread, etc

    Only 2 days to go and the weather is looking great at the
    track.

    Although it's hot today and Thursday the forecast is for only
    78* to 82* on the big day Saturday 20th.

    Perfect weather for a day at Grange Motor Circuit with just
    a bit of a breeze.

    I am going to be there on Friday afternoon and camping overnight.
    No extra charge after 5 pm on Friday.

    I got a box of Sick Bike Parts prizes in the mail today! :)

    Huge thanks to the Pablo and Jim for supporting the races
    all the way back to the first one at Willow Springs in June 2011.

    I really like their throttles, such a big improvement over the stock
    junky throttles that come with the kits.

    After looking at their new nylon sleeve model I like it better than
    the all metal one they have been selling for a long time.

    I have one of each to give out as prizes so you can check them
    out at the race for yourself and maybe even win one or some of
    their high performance air filters for the 2 and 4 strokes.

    I don't know how they sell their throttles for only $23.95 which
    includes the cable in a choice of 3 different lengths. :D

    I would post a lot of pics but there seems to be very little interest
    here about the races.
    Aside from my buddy MotoMagz who I trade parts with and talk to in
    real life no one has replied.

    There are a lot of pics posted here.

    I'm interested. I don't post much about it because I'm over here and can't do anything about it.

    One point I will make is that if the pictures aren't out there, who will see them, who will be interested enough to find out more and take part?

    Another point is that I don't know about the history between this site and Motorbicycling; I don't want to know. I'm here to enjoy seeing what people do and to learn how to do a motorised bike for myself. I'm not at all happy at the minor digs I see on both sites about each other. It serves no constructive purpose and only perpetuates lingering animosities. Gentlemen, put your big sticks down and sit round the table, eat, drink and be merry.
