I can vouch for the product personally. It's great for the building professional or the rookie weekend carpenter.
I know, I used one when I built my deck. They come in many colors too. So they're
"Easy to use, hard to lose"! Check it out!
Thanks again George!

We now have a new category indicated by the button on the right: "Businesses we support". Some of you guys have businesses and we would like to help you promote them. We think it's a good idea to try and "keep it in the family" so to speak. It doesn't matter whether it's motorcycle related or not, as a matter of fact, the only criteria is that it's legal, (or you'll get to be one of Steve Parker's customers). So, let me know if you have something to promote, company, service, product etc. Check out the first, GP Racing, owned and operated by Steve Gibson!
This site is honored to now be affiliated with the American Vintage Dirt Racers Association. AVDRA has been in existence since 1990 and under the leadership of founder Dave Boydstun, the club has flourished, holding races primarily in the Phoenix AZ area. From the AVDRA website: "Our race director David Boydstun is former National Off-road Director of AHRMA, known as the "World Leader" in running vintage cycle events. Dave has traveled the complete AHRMA National Off-road series for many years as a competitor, and three years working for AHRMA setting up and running the Off-road National Series. This is a lot of experience, and week in and week out he can be counted on."
This is an exciting time for us as, most of you know, post-vintage, at least in California under AHRMA was all but dead. Our AHRMA post-vintage race coordinator, Ric Tipton has stepped down in order to become coordinator of the Northern California region of AVDRA.
Our new affiliation will enable us to experience many of the things we have wanted for years but were not able to attain: Vintage and Post Vintage (or the GP class as it will now be known) will co-exist, just the way it should. As well, we'll have the opportunity to have a modern support class and kids class if there is demand for them. Ric is currently working with the Sierra Old-Timers and the Over the Hill Gang to work out a schedule that will enable us to race with them instead of the side-show status we have had to endure with the other club.
Feel free to contact Ric or myself with questions, concerns etc. Our contact info is at right.

This site is dedicated to and for the benefit of, our sponsors, who make it possible for us to go out and play in the dirt!
For the tireless volunteers who give countless hours of their time, energy and sometimes even, their money, scheduling, scoring, flagging, teching, cooking, listening and never complaining! Well...maybe just a little, but they deserve it.
For the racers, who drive long hours, pay inflated gas prices, brave heat, cold, rain, even snow and always manage a smile!
