Sat OCT 20th 2012 @ Grange Motor Circuit SOCAL MOTOR BICYCLE RACING

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

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

Of all the races I have put on and been to this was the most Fun of them all
and that seemed to be the consensus of everyone that was there.

Great people, sponsors, weather, track, food, bikes, track action, dyno, just a helluva fun weekend ..........

Nice Job Neil I sure bet it is alot of fun!
It really was the best race yet and everyone had a blast.

Too bad we can't get you and your fantastic bikes out here somehow.....

Hey you are the first one to say something over here in the dead zone. :)
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.
