Thanks for the warm welcome!  "Buy a rule book...Check one".  "Hard packed dirt road" Sounds slippy...but still fun.  I'll definitely be checking into the other forums, get familiar with the rules, and continue to watch in awe until its my turn on the salt.

Have a terrific Sunday!

Welcome Polly, be carefull hanging around Salt Racers, we are addicts you know, easily consumed by the addiction to speed and salt. 
Bike racing on the salt is easy, setting records is a little harder.  Start with having fun and being safe, the speed is easier after that.
As I always tell the kids.... if you're gonna play be sure to wear protection  :roll:

Welcome, Pete and Stuart.
The more the merrier - looking forward to seeing new faces at Bonneville and on the Dry Lake, respectively.
Good luck with your builds,

Willi

While Im a newbie to the forums here myself, welcome to those of you who have joined since Sept 18th ( when I joined ) Ive already found that this group of people are very supportive and informative and a very unique group.

Ok...unfortunately since I've posted my interest and made the decision to race next year.....the one that was going to help gear up my bike, and race with me, work on my bike, and be supportive while he raced has raced away into the wind. (my sweetness, and being overly accepting and supportive does that to people) ha ha

Not only do I need to do more research but I'm tuned into this sport now and DO NOT want to miss out on participating in an exciting sport and see just how far I can go!

Anyone out there live in CO that could lend some time/effort in helping me to prepare?  If there's even a CO group of you that race every year together, perhaps we could talk?  GOTTA be clear though, I'm not on here for a date!! (I can get that by myself, thanks) I sincerely want to race and experience the excitement first hand!!

Thanks,

Polly

My name is Tommy, I am from San Diego. I have always loved motor-sports and I am taking a step into LSR! I have a 1982 Honda xl100 that I am starting with and I believe I am building towards the 100cc A/G class but I am still learning what is involved in each class.

I hope to learn from all of your years of knowledge!

Thanks! Where is a good source for specs for each class (motorcycles specifically)? I have read there is a rule book, where can I purchase one?

Tom, welcome to LSR - and be careful, the salt bug can be virtually impossible to shake!
Order your rule book here:
www.scta-bni.org

Also, if you are planning to run locally in SoCal (El Mirage Dry Lake), you might want to join one of the SCTA Clubs.
The Gear Grinders have lots of MC guys as members . . .
Have fun,

Willi

Mark, stop by and chat, we are running an I/GL at the Finals.  Red, white and blue named Bockscar, after the last airplane to drop a nuclear weapon in anger.
