Thought some of you might enjoy some vintage race bike porn as we enter the cold and gray of the long racing off-season. If you have never attended an AHRMA event you should consider doing so as there’s just something about seeing and hearing these cool old bikes on track and strolling through the paddock, checking out the machines and talking with riders and crew members.
This latest episode includes interviews with pro racers Jason Disalvo & Shane Turpin who were competing there as well as some thoughts on the Barber Vintage Festival weekend. Also, some thoughts on the current state of the US roadracing scene both here and abroad.
