Think I could peddle my bike around the track faster than that.

Why does this remind me of crotchrocket riders? Stupid ******* squids that think they're too good for a 600 as a first bike they've ever sat on so it's off the 1000RR and R1's. Idiots.

Just like how ever beginning rider should start on a 250 Ninja, every driver should start in a Miata.*

*i know the kart argument but we're talking "dual purpose" vehicles

I'm giving you a prop for that one pusha, right in line with my own thoughts.

I do not think every rider should start on a 250. I think no one needs more than a 600 though. My brother for instance is 6'4" and around 250lbs and there is no way he could even ride a 250. It is also good to have enough power to get out of your own way on a motorcycle because you often have to avoid other people who don't see you.

Also, I don't have a turbo yet, so this still applies (and I believe it too, since I bought this car). "It's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow."

Was Z Nationals yesterday at Barber - put on by Z1 Motorsports. I'm super glad I didn't instruct this one - stopped into see some of my buds and hit BassPro right next door. I've never seen/saw so much ***-hat arrogance at a track before. By noon, there were 5 totalled cars, four from the novice group alone. Sadly, none of them was a GTR...

A couple snaps of cars that succumbed to idiocy.. This 23yrold novice's porsche is fubar... pushed it in the kink and got bit..

the 300zx should be easy to fix, so long as he doesnt have to replace the valve cover gaskets:

We had an S2k out here a while back catch fire during an Autox... lol

Apparently their oil filter seem to "shimmy" off when you constantly drive flat out.. or something like that.

I like the few places where he pretends he needs to track out all the way.
