If we get a few guys from this area that want to head out for an open day next year, that would at least split the cost of a hotel I would be up for that.

Snik how much did it cost you to ride it?
id be done, need to get this speed out of my system lol

what i pay for 1 weekend, you guys will pay for 1 day.
tire warmers for me can pay for maybe a 1/3 of yours.
lets not get into car lifts, vs bike stands

what i pay for a set of slicks, you guys can barely buy one. avg bike has a 4 gallon tank, you may use 2 tanks all weekend, try that with a car.
lolwut?

+1 on the lolwut snik, I was with you for a little but now I am just

I figured it would be cheaper for a bike. So maybe the three day instructor course for 350+ isnt soo bad after all...

and that video that u posted... repost saw it a few days ago, great battle to the finish

Are there any meeting spots for car people? I'm not a street racer but it would be nice to go chill with some people with similar interests. Thanks!


P.S. Any place local here I can get some yellow fog light bulbs? One of mine just died

I know where to get yellow tint spray if youre interested

I just noticed this post, must've skipped over it by accident.

Welcome to the area, this is your new home if you are in Hampton. We are just as active than the guys up north. Enjoy!

Glen has them...



so this is what it would look like when not on, which would be all the time...

I say go for it, the bulbs are relatively cheap, the worst that happens is you sell them if you dont like em.

WOW..... That sucks.... I couldn't believe they would BAN him over something like that. Maybe he didn't know the answer. I LOL'd at that episode.

this^

and I talked to a few guys who have gotten reckless driving tickets here before for speeding (one guy 80/60 and the other guy 79/45). They said it would probably be dismissed to a regular speeding ticket because the judge here hates the guidelines and rules for reckless driving. So that coupled with my first offence, a lawyer, driver improvement = a good chance of walking away with just an unproper driving ticket

no one here street races.. at least as far as I know. Just some of us including myself like to drive a little too fast every now and then

True story.

I don't even realize how fast I'm going until I look down at the speedometer and it says 90. Oops
