Yeah, OTMX did a great job for 2 days of racing. The GH crew did an excellent job with the track. I had a blast both days. So yes, SoCal OTMX is a fun club to race with.

The Place / 5 motos today
« on: April 14, 2018, 07:02:26 PM »
So I decided to try and race both with REM and SoCal OTMX today. Was not sure if the schedules would work since the races were on different tracks but went for it anyway. Yeah really not a smart thing to do when you are talking about some rough and tough tracks and you are old and out of shape.

Well, first moto was with OTMX then had plenty of time for my first REM moto, but only 10 min after the REM moto and the start of my 2nd OTMX moto. Then plenty of time again for my 2nd REM moto and after that had a 20 min break before my 3rd and last moto of the day with OTMX. Glad my Husky's TBT suspension was dialed pretty good, as both tracks were gnarly at the end. REM was not quite as rough as the National track, but man, I know I'll sleep well tonight.

Of course, I still have 2 more motos to do tomorrow with OTMX. Got 3rd OA with REM and scored a sweet 3rd place 20th anniversary plaque. So far I believe I'm in 5th place with OTMX, but basically I threw away a better finish on moto two, as 2 fellow racers crashed pretty good and I pulled off the track and went to help them. Glad they were relatively ok and no broken bones, but they will really be sore tomorrow  :shock:

So anyway, overall, I had a great time with a couple of great groups at a awesome and tough Glen Helen.

Glad to hear you are doing well Mike. I was close by when that happened and watched the ending of your not so good landing. Only give you a 2 on that one though, as your form was not that impressive. And yes, McGrath hit the brakes hard, made a u-turn around you and got himself and his bike in front of you so you would not get hit. I was trying to get there, but this old guy can't run these days, but luckily there were a lot of people that got there quickly to help and make sure you were ok.

As soon as more people got there, McGrath dropped his bike and was there with you. It was really good seeing you get up and walking after what seemed like such a long time on the ground. But please, refrain from showing off that way anymore, as you almost gave this old guy a heart attack.

The Place / Re: Milestone tomorrow - Thursday
« on: April 05, 2018, 03:27:22 PM »
Milestone was a blast today. Had a great time riding with Wags and Mike10. Mike was hauling on Wags YZ250f, he seemed right at home on that bike right away. And I got to ride a new '18 350 KTM courtesy of Wags, as it was the first time the bike had been on the dirt since he picked up Tuesday.

That is an awesome bike and it felt just as powerful as my '15 Husky 450, but way lighter and narrower. I couldn't really flog it since it was brand new and need it to be broken in by Wags, but can't wait to give it another run once he puts some hours on it.

BTW, I was going to go into the parts store, but I noticed there was some strange dude leering at the girl in there, so I decided to go ride instead  :shock: :lol:

Took the day off tomorrow, so going to Milestone. Parking by the parts store under the trees. Anyone else?

The Place / REM is back on this Sat 3/7
« on: April 01, 2018, 08:05:41 PM »
REM is back on this Saturday, April 7th. Come on out and join the fun.
There is also the LL Qualifiers on the main track, so gate fee should be $10, and probably should get there early, as I would imagine there will be a ton of people there, so the gate might be packed and also might be tight parking.

And don't make other plans for next Sat, 3/14, as REM will be having their 20th anniversary of racing at GH and the celebration and racing will be great.

The Place / SoCal OTMX at GH (REM) this Sunday 3/8
« on: April 01, 2018, 07:58:14 PM »
SoCal OTMX will be racing on the REM track at GH on Sunday 3/8. This is a shared race in conjunction with OTHG. This should be fun and also get to race with both clubs if you want.

The Place / Sleetdawg took a header at Trans-Am Saturday
« on: March 25, 2018, 01:20:25 PM »
So Mike was in the 2 stroke race and was kicking ass with McGrath right behind him. Then on the jumps in the back when the main is going towards the REM track something happened and he lost it and down he went really hard and he was out. He was on the ground for a few minutes and finally was able to get up with some help. It didn't look like he broke anything, but he looked pretty dazed when they took him back to the pits in the Rhino.

But McGrath sure did show a really class act. That section was really fast and where Mike landed was pretty much blind. McGrath, who was behind Mike at the time, hit the brakes turned around an put his bike in front of Mike to block anyone else from hitting him. Very cool to see for sure. The rest of the race was red flagged.

Hope Sleeter is doing good. If anyone has any info, please post it.

Always brings a smile. That was a good one, but you had to know the characters.

REM's been cancelled, so looks like we're going to Cahuilla Saturday-

Do you know if the rains have affected the track? Sunday I'm planning on racing with OTHG at Sunrise.
