I'd agree with you, but then we would both be wrong.

Back in the 70s all the pros at my track puffed hippie hay like it was air. They'd bust out of their vans in a fog of smoke, hop on their bikes and haul ass. Steve Stackable even endorsed his product by running it's likeness on his lid.


So I guess we can't rule out beer as a performance aid. biggrin

Ha! I really am trying to train Skiddie! Trying .......

I been at this sh*t for twenty something weeks with what I feel is little progress. I know, I know - it's called OLD age but regardless, it's starting to make me angry. LOL I only share all this so you don't get upset when I pass on the adult beverage. (If I do) wink

Boy, those were great days to the best of my recollection. But they were really different - normal motos in the expert class were in the 25 minute range, and people rode at a much less energetic pace. Nobody ever REALLY, REALLY went WFO very much. I see kids riding these days and I just can't believe how fast they are. I'm thankful for my advanced age, because I wouldn't have a chance against the fast guys these days even if I was still 20. At least I have a valid excuse. And, to some extent, I'm kind of sad for all these fast kids. How many of these young guys ever spent all Satuday watching the Allman Brothers at Jeppesen Stadium, slept 4 or 5 hours and then spent all Sunday racing, then asked, "Where'd I get this sunburn from? Oh, yeah, yesterday..."
