Going to the LBGP?    (Score: 1, Normal) 03-16-2012 00:15

Hey... enough bad talk...

Anyone going to the LBGP this year? We're planning to go.

On an interesting aside.. I just got a really good job 3 miles from my house... I'm thinking of getting one of them Honda Scooters to go to work. May ride it slow through UCI so I can get enough time to at least smoke of them Short Story cigars.

Scooter and helmet to be RED and a jacket that proudly announces me to be a member of the Irvine Infernal Seraphims. The 949/92603 would not allow otherwise.. must be intelligent, well bred and genteel before you cause hell, dig?

"Sorry officer, never saw who did that... awful really. It must have been some punk from Santa Ana that did that... We would never do that, see? We were just drinking our Stoli with a dash of Campari all along and discussing how to keep Dante happy..."

(PS, if you don't understand that, then you should move to Oakland and get a loud, smoggy Hog).

Just planning to go, not 100% sure at this time. Have been there a couple of times including Michael Andretti's win in a Honda a couple of years ago.

Anyhow, Tamiya is back with Free Friday tickets. http://tamiyausa.com/LBGP/

As for the scooter, I crave for the Honda Ruckus, in black...

I wish I could go to cheer Honda on, but alas, no funds. Also, I'm not sure I could force myself to root for (cow) Chip's team.

Before I tried the Tamiya link...

I thought Tony was going to Lesbian Bisexual Gay Pride...

Here's a neat red scooter that came as accessory with '80's Honda City. It folded into the trunk!

Hey, can someone attending please post an opinion of the engine sound? The spec is now 2.2L turbo-V6, right? So much for Tony's plan to reduce cost in Indycar by eliminating turbos. I'm curious how Rubens will do.

Speaking of Michael, he and Penn were the reasons I'd been checking out Celebrity Apprentice this year. My take after Sunday:

Michael = 1
Trump = 0

Which Tony? I assume you mean Tony George?

We've seen Micheal win.

We've seen Micheal go off the right angle right turn, off the track with blown tires.

He used to be hard on his tires.

I like the Ruckus too, but it's currently only available with a 49cc engine.. I thought they offered a larger one before? If it came with something over 160cc, in a twin, I'd be all over it.
