The frame was snapped, the #3 rod was dangling from a hole in the cases, and what was left had been consumed by fire.  I said, "Hey, we've got all night!"

Your idea of sitting down with a good book involves anything with "Twist of the Wrist" in the title.

Guilty!

...and you fall asleep while telling racing stories, only to do laps in your sleep while the people around you giggle as they watch your hands pull in imaginary clutch levers and open the throttle...

Uh, that 440 between the seats would make her a MOBILE HOME, son.
In some neighborhoods in Michigan, the old girl would be the nicest house on the block!

+1 on this, I do it almost every night, except I can never get through an entire lap, I always end up stopping and trying to analize a corner or remembering a pass or a misktake, then I cant fall asleep damn!
 
anyway, you know your a racer when....

Everytime you see someone win money on a game show you immediatly know what you would purchase at the bike shop  :biggrin:

+2 on this...until you reenact a highside and your pulse races forcing you to start all over again.

....when you lean toward the right front wheel, look through the lower right part of the windshield, and turn the wheel slightly left on exit of cloverleaf on-ramps during my morning commute.

I need some seat time real bad!

i did do some gocart racing recently and smoked all of the employees to their dismay!

Having all the race wiring done on the bike, you start wiring essential components on your truck... just in case

You use safety wire to put buttons on costumes, (or any garment for that matter).

and you make braking noises going way too hot into a turn, and yelling "S*@*!"  right before you crash.

Never interrupt your opponent while he's making a mistake.
