A Whole Lot of Nothin'!

As I sit here writing this, it's about 9:30 on Wednesday evening. We were unable to ride today because of a recall on the refrigerator in the motorhome that needed to be fixed, so we had to find other things to keep us busy. Julie and I worked on school work quite a bit today, after a little field trip we went on.

Where did we go? The Chaparral Racing headquarters in San Bernardino, CA. I thought the shop that I work at was big! Chaparral has a heavy history in the motorcycle industry, and is still quite popular out here. They're shop and warehouse took up a whole block! I couldn't believe how much motocross gear they carry.. I think they covered every brand!

Hey John.. Can you imagine stocking these oil racks!?

After going to Chaparral, we made a quick pitstop at walmart.. only to find a replica Honda Red Bull Racing CRF 250r on display on top of a bunch of Red Bull. It looked kinda cool! The ratchet belts holding the bike up were starting to rip though.. ut oh.

Tomorrow, our plans are to ride at Perris Raceway under the lights from 4-9 PM. I got to ride the track a few weeks ago, but it was pro day. Needless to say, the place was stacked with pros! Tomorrow should be more mellow. After we finish up at Perris, we're going to head to Pala for our last day of riding in California. :[

  1. Wow.
    That place is H.U.G.E.
    Dig those crazy squiggly overhead lights.

    Yeah, Katie, stocking those oil racks might require upping the ol' training schedule, eh?
    I'd probably have to take an extra vitamin, too.
    Do you think they have a can of chain lube in stock? :)

    Those guys better make sure their labels aren't peeling off all of those red, pointy Honda HP Trans Oil bottles! :)
