Hey bulldog, I was watching some vids from the last cmra round at TWS and came across this. There is a whole lot of you (atleast I believe it's you) in there after about half way, great race! Can't wait to join you all on the grid next season!!!



Also, congrats to n7heven for the championship and getting promoted to expert! Too fast after only one full year of racing!

Thanks bro, but I'm going to protest...
There's no way I want to race Expert in my second year, will be 43 years old, and will be on a 7 year old bike...

In all fairness and honesty, I'm really proud of what I accomplished in 2012, but there was a whole bunch of guys faster than me, that didn't compete the whole season; and who'd have put me farther back in points if they had.
Mechanical issues, crashes, injuries, family obligations, etc, kept several key competitors out of the points to challenge my placement in the four races that I compete in.

I say stay in expert. You'll get faster that way especially with a good tow from the seasoned guys. We all know your bike isn't an issue, we still have to 600 guys beating liter bikes at every track. If you were a front running expert, I'd say upgrade the bike. Mechanical issues and crashes are all part of racing. Congrats on the bump and staying consistent!

Valid points, but you know I'm really still on a learning curve...
I've only been on a sport bike for 2.5 years now, this month...
Thank you for the acknowledgement, it's been fun being out there with you (...if I can just get my Start launches down like you have)!

Congrats Greg.....

Past bikes - A LOT!

Been riding for 39 years, I have maybe 60,000 miles total in those years.

I do 3 - 5 trackdays a year, still faster than N7HEVN
