I'm not sure I could buy enough flowers for wifey to get clearance to go to the races on Mothers Day !

Now if only I could convince her that smelling 2 stroke oil all day is the best possible way to spend the day......

A few of us from Az. go every year. I missed last year when I tore my ACL. Now, this year I have my house up for sale (fsbo) and may have to miss it again. :)
There is nothing that compares to mx. Those guys are so insanely fast it's unbeliveable. Still can't get over watching Larocco and RC coming down Ocelot Mtn., upshifting and wheeling over the holes and bumps. We could hardly walk/stand it was so steep.

Damon, tell her you are taking your Mom to the race!!!!! :D

See you there,

I will try to make it. Man, What a bad day to have a national in our town. Motocross or Mum. Hmmmmm. And I just bought my new Digital camera.. She'll always love me right???
Steve, You poor guy, now that you live in Socal im going to be bugging you to go riding with me and my posse. I'll wait a couple of months for you to get settled in then the bugging will start. I need to take you on a Laughlin ride. You'll love it!!!!!!!!

Steve, I will probably be on the downhill by the flagpole. You can overlook the whole track from up
there! Dig yourself a custom seat into the hillside and your set for the day!Don't forget the cold ones(cans only!) :) :D :D I'll look for your signs.

Went last year and I'll be there again this year.

Not going would be lame, since it's 10 minutes from my house.

I'll be the one with the Thumpertalk! tattoo on my forehead.

I might make it. We usually try to hang on the downhill somewhere.

helpful tip:

If you mix a bunch of diet Cokes in your ice chest with coors light cans on the bottom, you can usually get it past the gate.

beached1, You are allowed to bring in beer as long as it's not in a bottle,they don't want any drunks using them as a weapon! Every year i've been there i have seen fights :) :D They are just trying to keep it safe :D You will see people at the gates pounding down their beers,because they are in bottles.
