    A club called AFM in California. 7 rounds at tracks like Infineon, Thunderhill & Buttonwillow.

    for those that aren't familiar with AFM, I present the 2010 banquet video

    Motivates me everytime i see it
    I don’t need to trek through Africa and I don’t need to climb Everest — I need to ride every f***ing curvy road between here and there. That’s far more powerful. Far more majestic. Far more of a journey.

    Picking up this topic to make a small resumé of the fantastic G.E.S. championship.

    Back in 2012 Aprilias dominated the races and an RSV took 1st place overall

    In 2013, some very well ridden GSX-R 750 and ZXR750RR showed up and won most of the races. RSV´s were getting no more than 2nd and 3rd places. As a consolation Honda VTR SP1 were way back in the grid...
    In some races, Simpson brought a RC45 ex-racer and won by a big margin!
    A GSX-R750 got the title.

    This year things got a little more difficult and a very competitive YZF750SP and a fresh ZX7-R joined the GSX-R 750 at the front of the races.
    A couple of VTR SP2 also managed to get some podiums shared with RSV´s.

    Very interesting championship to watch!!!
