Yah, we are looking at destroying, but enhancing, your image of what CMHC ia all about. Sam, correct me if I'm wrong, but the end of bike week 2008 is the scheduled date, earlier than past years.

If I can get the backup the HPR will rise again, working on sponsor, money, location, and the rest of the usual hangups; bigger, better, more challenging, etc,etc, ya!.

Do you know what it looks like? go to: http://www/consolati.com/hpr/hpr.html and feast on the past figure-eight. I'm rebuilding the website so watch for more.

Keep us updated because I'll pull any string I can to get that up and running again. I've wanted to go balls out on that track since i was literally in my early teens.

****, I really haven't posted that often, and when I do I double it up.
That's what happens when single malt slides down the gullet so smooth I get fuzzy in the eyelids.
Weather permitting I hope to be at Moonbeam at noon tomorrow. Maybe I'll finally meet some of you folks.

Traffic Jammer: At age 90 you will perish under strange circumstances involving a gallon of lotion, two nine volt batteries, and a photograph of a bicycle. that is so rad, better than being hit by a beer truck.

Hmmm.
Real name gets At age 72 you will die fighting the Interplanetary War on Terrorism on Camp Harmony, Venus.

BF name gets pyze-guy: At age 57 the artificial intelligence software you programmed becomes self aware and devours you. You will be saved to disk though, so no worries.

And last but not least chocolaty shatner: At age 80 you will realize that you actually died three years earlier, and have been dreaming all the events since then.

Wicked. See you in the morn at moonbeam.
