    Well....three years riding in OHIO doesn't allow for the best cornering experience does it. But....I'm guessing in the midwest the range of racer talent is much more broad than say in CA because we can ride year round and in canyons.
    Yeah, Texans have just natural talent.... Polen, Schwantz, Spies, Edwards, etc etc etc



    As far as the msf is concerned, I'm a big fan of education. I'm a bigger fan of practicing that education in a controlled environment.

    You'd be surprised... get in the southeastern part of Ohio and you are getting into the foothills of the appalatians....

    When I lived in Newark in the eastern half of the state there were already some monster backroads.

    My point is that Texas doesn't have a monopoly on turning out racers...

    You have ONE best dealer in the US - AF1 Racing for Aprilia.

    California has San Jose BMW. You know, the BMW dealership that actually raced the bikes and were even competitive.

    Amauri Nunez, one of the mechanics that used to work Aprilia Supermoto racing team, is at Long Beach Aprilia. Not as good as AF1 because they don't have the resources as AF1 but Amauri is as good as Micah if not better.

    Pro Italia handles Ducati and MV Agusta.

    Hell, even the best Hardly-Ableson dealership is in California: Bartel's. Last I heard Shawn Higbee rides for them. You know, the Shawn Higbee that Erik Buell mentioned by name.

    California rules!!!

    I am not a Tennessean, therefore, Spies is not a Texan. No matter what he might think.

    Yeah but you have to admit though you are not the norm. Damn Betty Spies :
    LOL - thanks for the laugh.

    Nope - not the norm in ANY way...that's me.

    Proving the impossible possible.
