Weekend at the Races #31

Tom S. wrote: @mdscott Thank you. No Quail for me this year. It conflicts with the AFT flat track race in Calistoga. I've shown bikes at Quail the past two years and no others are ready. I'd like to go back there again next year w/my RD350. My DT400 is so far away from being a show bike. :lol:

How about you? Are you planning to go?


Yes I I'm,

May 19th is the Sacramento mile, I actually prefer 1/2mi over mile flat track.

Thanks Mark

@MarkT Thank you. I'm having the time of my life. I post these photos and race reports on a couple of different forums and on Facebook. I was drawn to this site to find info and support for my DT400. This flat track stuff is a quite bit off topic here, but it's really easy to share and I always hope that other gearheads will be interested.

Thanks for asking, and for sharing the link. I have not been to the races in Auburn. I've heard of it, and it looks like a great time. Have you been there?

I'll be at the Sacramento Mile this Saturday (it's one of my favorite races) and at Lodi the night before. There is also a race at Prairie City on Friday and an amateur mile at Sacramento on Sunday, but I couldn't fit either of those into my schedule. The last couple of weeks have been busy. I went to the Calistoga Half-Mile two weekends ago and the Arizona Mile last weekend. I'll post some photos soon. Lodi is going to have a vintage class. Perhaps there will be a bike or two w/Yamaha enduro power. I'll be watching, for sure.

Here are some photos from the Calistoga Half-Mile. This fun track is at the Napa County Fairgrounds in Calistoga, which is at the north end of the Napa valley. Wine country and all... It's also the area where large deadly fires have burned many homes, businesses and lots of countryside. The area is healing, but there was still plenty of damage visible along the highway between Calistoga and our hotel in nearby Santa Rosa.

The big bike class had a close race for the win, between two Indian motorcycles. Indians are really the big deal right now. You can buy a brand new, race-ready bike for about $45,000 and they are very competitive. The small bike class was won by a young man on a Honda, but second place went to a woman riding a Husqvarna.

One guy had a very nice, 3,000 mile, '69 AT1 pit bike with autographed Joe Leonard number plate. I always enjoy the rider track-walk.

nice pics from Calistoga, 1/2mi is really fun to watch. Is the Calistoga 1/2 in Oct still going on, I heard they canceled it. A friend was in the housing track in Santa Rosa that burnt down, his was one of few that was spared.

Thanks Mark
