This thread is totally going off the end, and off topic.  So, I'll add to it...

I motor bike spinning the tire is still going to trench the course, just like the cars, right?  So, an all bike event or course is not going to change anything...

Glad to hear JH, Stainless and Stoney are on the mend. Thanks for the update guys.

Think I saw Stan a couple of times while I was at the Red Flame for breakfast and lunch. At least Im thinking a guy in a safari hat with a San Berdoo Roadsters patch on the front of it and a front license plate to match on his truck might be Stan  :-)

Cant wait to go back next year although im sure the Wild Weasel will be done by then and Ill be busy doing between runs chores on it  :-D

Finally got some pixs posted: https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/111053800401265205999/albums/5914619327776635281

Well crap! Here I go being dumb on computers again. I try to look at the pictures you posted and the thing told me I didn't have permission to see them. Go figure.

Hey Woodie, I thought we were buddies. I also can't see your pictures because I don't have permission.

 See if I take you to dinner again. LOL

Thanks Woody. I always enjoy your pictures but I have an aversion to joining most sites as I explained in my rant the other day. Just getting old and cranky!  :evil: :evil: :-D

Heck-fire even I could open all those. a lot of good pictures.

That 1448B SC/1650cc ran several runs over the record, but I didn't see any thing for backup runs. What's up with that?

Woody, you should have said hi when you shot the 416 pickup, we never know who has the camera pointed at us!

I was looking at the pictures that WOODY@DDLLC took and wondered if some one could tell who's car this is?
(pictures 104 thru 119)

It's always easy to find Stan, he's the guy with mischievous smirk on his face and a camera in his hands... It was good to hook up with him and chat at the goose in the evenings when he was done for the day.
