    Speedway

    A couple of years ago, Speed showed European Speedway on late night. I wouldn't suppose anybody might know what happened. It was great fun to watch.

    And then we have these crazy bastards!
    http://www.fim-tv.com/page/TrackRaci...926271,00.html

    I guess I need to search online some.
    Bikes:
    2007.5 Tuono-Black, with 1102cc's of micah's badness!
    2012 Griso-Silver and black, Agostini pipe, some carbon bits.
    2006 Vespa GT200-bitubo suspension all around, Malossi big-bore, head and cam, Akrapovic pipe, all put together by Micah.

    gone 2002 Caponord-Oyster gray (as faithful as a hound dog)
    gone Futura-Red (on the AF1 showroom floor. Get some.)

    The more I learn about people, the more I appreciate rocks.

    That Speedway show was real freaking fun. My brother ice races sometimes (or he used to) but they only use sheet metal screws. Those crazy European bastards have like 2" spikes or some crazy shit. Awesome. And I think those motors run nitro or alcohol, but I might be bullshitting.

    Some say a comet will fall from the sky. Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves. Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still. Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits. Some say the end is near. Some say we'll see armageddon soon. I certainly hope we will
    I sure could use a vacation from this stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit... One great big festering neon distraction, I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied. Learn to swim!!!

    The European Speedway season starts soon on Fox or Speed.
    One of the reasons I pay for it.

    Last year was a brilliant year.

    There is no mention on Speed or the Speedway website about TV.

    Kwinana ? How the hell do you know about that? It is a shity little track that does not get used any more for solo`s. North of Perth 30 mins there is a new ish track called Pinjar that puts on events.
    Speedway in Perth used to be quite big. Claremont was a big track and the Poms would come each year and kick our arses. I remember watching Ivan Mauger.
    At the end of the Euro season we get a few of the big names come here and race an event. Its getting bigger each year. Last year we were meant to get the young aussie gun. Forgot his name. he got accused of rape so had to stay in ol blitty to fend off charges. Havnt herd what happened. Christ he can ride.
