Keeping busy.

Luckily the snow turned into rain. They say it may warm up by the weekend. I certainly hope so.

ECTA, East Coast Timing Assoc. runs the Ohio Mile and LTA , Loring Timing Assoc. runs 1 mile and 1 1/2 mile events in Maine. Ohio is a little closer, Maine is probably a better vacation location. Would be nice to be certified of cracking 185+

Some of the guys from Atco (1/4 mile) go there, big names like Rickey Gadson and his nephew Richard Gadson. Steve Knecum who built the engine on Bill Warner's 311 mph 'Busa, is a regular at Atco too. If I go next year, I will be shooting for 190 on my '12. Whether or not it will go that fast, remains to be seen. You never know until you try sometimes, will be a ton of fun either way.

I'm still keeping my bike ready. temps may be climbing up to 50's next week.

That sounds like a nice vacation with some excitement built into it. I would be interested in hearing on how you do.

I used to go to atco quite often. One of my coworkers used to race brackets and I was his pit crew. Had my cars there a couple times too.

There is definitely some worked bikes at atco. They look fast but usually they hide their 1/4 mile times. You go there a lot?

Raced there for over 20 yrs mostly for fun, sometimes for $$, alot of times as a "jockey" for friends that want to know how quick thier bikes can go.

thanks everybody >.< and tom for now im just moving to pasadena, but we're looking to move back to the towson area some time soon. and damn it, was going to ride to school today, and came out to a dead battery, i guess the solar panel charger i got doesnt really work or wasnt getting enough light

i used to have one of those solar panel chargers. it didnt do much. well at least i think. i used it in winter like 2 years ago on my bike. the bike started after about 3-4 weeks of no use and on the panel. but i also have a lot of light coming in from the window where the panel is located. also having a long wire is connected to the panel is bad since it will be loosing current. but no way can it replace a battery tender.
