Saturday night under the lights. by: Dave Lehl

Dave Lehl is a customer of mine. He mentioned he took pictures and asked if he could come shoot some flattrack. He took these last saturday night at our local Bangin Bars races in Dacono north of Denver.

We lost a good one in Kansas. He was a true gentleman. A fast very fast one. His bikes inspirational. His attitude admirable. I am lucky to have met him. Flattrack racing is real. The walls, the bikes, the speeds and closeness are all very real. The form of racing has not changed at all through the years. It is pure and unharnessed. The danger is always there and that is part of the race form's great allure. It is not to be taken lightly or raced with out respect for what it really is; real.

carpe de checkers

Did some flattracking last saturday night at our local Bangin Bars meet. Not on the twin pictured but on good ol Pink to Purple CRF. This was the 3rd set of different style wheels used on this bike in the last month. Pikes Peak- 17"supermotos, Hill climb- 21/18" knobblies, and finally good ol 19" Dt-1 CD5/CD3 stickies. I crashed in one money class heat. Figured out that my rear brake linkage jam nut came loose causing my pedal to be sky high. Higher than Cheech in a space ship. (Thanks Ant!) Any hoo, glad I figured that out because I was having hell getting the 450 through the corners with any kind of smoothness. In the mains I got punted out to the wall and finished near last and In the 30+ class I took the win. So I have won in the last three races I entered in. Kinda cool for a ol married grease monkey that grew up on a farm. All right enough about me, lets talk about me some more :) Time to get ready for Kansas.
