 Kansas County Fair Circuit
Here are some shots I took last month at the kansas county fair series or the I-70 series or what ever you want to call it. for the last four years It has become the most fun week of the year for me. Missed Twitch and Andy but I am sure they are up to no good, having fun, and going fast elsewhere. Good to see Garrett getting around good. Hope to see him on a bike soon. Come out to Kansas if you want to race some great 1/2 miles! Hays is 9/13.

The one wolverine portrait pic was taken shortly after I watched the fellow run off the Finish line. And then receive cpr in the back of a flatbed plow truck. That was not the first time I have seen chest compressions at the races. It was the first of this summer but not the last. Racing is real. Deep and real.

Hope you guys are well.
We've been back at the track, continuing with testing and riding. I've finally had a couple of opportunities to get my Buell 1125R track bike out.
We brought this bike as a stolen recovery & writeoff. It was a mess: leaking forks, still hot wired and damage all over. Added to this was the crushed exhaust and cracked engine case from when the police salvaged it with a forklift!?!?
We pulled it apart, rebuilt and repaired components as needed. Freshened everything up, including suspension and brakes, then added a couple of minor upgrades for good measure.
So far it's running really well and the only issue has been a fuse that decided to blow at random.

We're off to Phillip Island GP circuit next up. I will update you guys after that.

This weekend I rode the 3rd round in the europeian extreme-enduro cup.
My bike had some issues so the beta guys sent me a demo bike.
Normally I ride a 300 4 stroke.
The beta is a 300 2 stroke.
We changed the rear tyre to a goldentyre and raced. 
16th overall in the pro class in a europeian extreme-enduro event on a demo bike. Needless to say I'm satisfyed. And beaten to death. 
Best regards Martin

Mid summer update;  Just had an AWESOME two weekends of some great halfmile cushion dirt surfing. first was the Mid-Ohio Ashland Vintage national and the next week was Wauseon Vintage national which always has great rider and spectator turnouts. Got on the podium at both nationals, so needless to say I was PUMPED!  As always thanks for the support!

It’s been winter here in Australia and the weather less than ideal for riding. 
So, with the promise of some sunshine we headed to Supermoto Magazine Australia and Motorcycling Victoria’s Supermoto ride day.
We loaded up the bike, drove over 2 hours on roads that were mostly iced over to find a cold and wet track. Fortunately the sun came out and it turned into a great day. 

Unfortunately I couldn’t get close enough to the dirt part of the track to get any good photos of the jumps. Hopefully someone else did and the photos surface online.

Simone's supermoto is a 2010 Husqvarna SMR449. We bought it from someone who was using it as daily transport. Standard these things have a crazy seat height, so we set the suspension up for Simone. This was a little tricky as it needed to be lowered but also be able to handle jumps. Custom Eibach springs and tweaking the internals seemed to do the trick.
Aside from a few outings in the forest, we really haven't used it much. I hadn’t even bothered changing the mismatched old road tyres that were on it. It was still a great day out and Simone rode really well.

Thanks again for your support.
