Darla your husband is one fast MF! Had a chance to see him last weekend and have been into MPH to get some Water Wetter once. Nice shop! Have a few friends "can't use names" that have needed some "straightening work" done. Racer boys of course.


The name is Kathy and I have been riding since I could walk. Started on a fifty and have graduated to a Ducati 999. I'm 29 yrs old and I live in Bath. Hang with some crazy CORE people and love twisties. Trying to get my racing license this year. I run a successful E-Business and hope to die with the most toys!

hi

I'm ashley and i am 17. I met the group of guys at Mid-Ohio during the bike races. I don't ride a bike...partially because I don't have one. I do love cars though. I enjoy a good car show now and then. I love working at Mid-Ohio. Its an awesome place to be. I go to school. That is about it. thats me.

Who am I????????????????? I think all of you know who i am but if not. Im Dan DeFrancisco I live in gahanna ohio, just out side columbus. I started riding motorcycles at the age of 6, one day hopefully ill learn how to ride. lol Im part of the localriders.com endurance racing team. I started racing 5 yrs ago on my gsxr 750. About 3 yrs ago I met 2 really great guys at mid ohio who had big dreams of some crazy web site (every one wanted to be a web millionare that year), not long after that the web page was open and started to grow, they made the offer to me to start helping me race, and thats what they did out of their own pockets they started sponsoring me. Ive heard many times the reason I was recruited to be part of this mess, was cause im loud and out going and the year they met me out of the thousands of people at mid ohio i was the loudest person there. LOL. Now i get to hang with my best buds every race weekend, I always get to meet alot of members that come to the track to watch, hang out , and help out, all that plus we now have help from www.fssuzuki.com and many others that makes our race season more enjoyable. So really this is just a reminder THANKS to dave and mike..........


Thanks for all you guys have done for me and for being the 2 great friends you are. Thanks for making this kick ass site, one day it will really pay off big time!!!!!!

I came a very long way

My name is Vera, 38 years, born and raised in Germany. Lived in Australia from 1997 - 2000, then moved to Cincinnati/Ohio.

My love for motorcycles started early as my entire family has a license (even my grandparents rode!). So my parents made me go for my license at the age of 18. Unfortunately, I never rode, mainly because I was too sick (endo) and getting worse over the years.
But then, 2 years ago, my life changed after my last surgery. Trust me, I had to learn how to live a normal life. AND I LOVE LIVING!!! After I discovered that I am finally able to do all the things normal people do, I thought, ok, now I finally want to ride. I signed up for the MSF in July 2002, passed the test, got my endorsement and then ......... after 20 years of waiting, I bought my first bike in August 2002. It's a 600 Yamaha Seca, 1996 model, and the best looking bike in town. It's used, but it's mine.
Some people say I am too slow and should take more risk while riding, but - to be very Australian right now - I don't give a ratsarse! I know I don't have the experience and need to practice and mostly - need to get more confidence. I will get there. Slowly, but I will .............. I've come a very long way and I don't let anyone telling me how fast I should ride, how far I should lean and I won't let anyone forcing me going faster than I want to.
Trust me, you don't want me riding the same way I am driving my little car. I am known as "leadfoot", "petrolhead", "tailgater", and other nice descriptions.
On my bike, I don't have these "ambitions".

I am glad that I found this group. Most people are VERY nice and very helpful. Thanks!!!
