We're #1. Again.

Well, it's been a good year. As of today with the last Willow Springs Motorcycle Club (WSMC) race of the year, my racing season is now officially over. I just took my second championship of the year. This one was with WSMC in Vintage Lightweight (0-650cc) class. That's me with #1 Vintage Heavyweight Championship winner George Beavers.

mo WSMC Alazurra

...Looks like WSMC might be keeping the Lightweight Vintage class mostly the same...possibly with a 1987 cutoff instead of 1990! [Hmm... Which fast bikes under 650ss's were around in 1987? ] We are saved!

WSMC Alazurra

Willow Springs Motorcycle Club just changed their vintage cutoff for 2007 from 1985 to 1990. The Alazurra's reign in Vintage lightweight (<650cc)is therefore over as there will be lots of nasty bikes like FZR400's in the class. Alas!

You can always tell

Inexperienced used motorcycle buyers

By the questions that they ask

When they call you

To inquire about

The Moto Guzzi or Ducati that you have for sale

“How many miles are on it”

“Does it need anything?”

“Is the title clear?”

All of these are acceptable questions that

Cut to the heart of the matter

That is,

What condition the machine is in

And what troubles one can expect from it

In the near term

“Why are you selling it?”

“Are you the original owner?”

“How long have you had it?”

These are queries

From the ignorant and inexperienced

Who fear the unknown mechanism

Who shy from mechanical matters

Who pay other people to ponder their bikes

Why dally.

If you really want to know

The hidden history of the mount

That you consider for purchase

Ask directly, then.

“What is the farthest wheelie you have done with it?”

“How many beers have you consumed whilst riding upon it?”

“How many times has your Brother-in-Law Bob, that sod, dropped it?”

“Have the police ever chased this machine?”

“Further, have they caught it?”

Be bold.

And perhaps

I will tell

you a story

About the bike

that you are about to buy
