500 miles to watch some racing!

My buddy and fellow Versys owner, Vince and i decided to ride to Hallett, OK to watch some CMRA racing. 250 miles each way and our first overnighter.



Loaded up the saddle bags and rolled out at 4am.




Love to ride the sun up!



Our route takes us through lots of small towns. I love the little trips back in time.



Some are quite fun!



Got to the race track a and watched two endurance races.




These guys were doing 5 hour races in close to 110 degrees. Yikes!!!



Day 2 sprint races brought out a few classics. Loved these 60s and 70s era Triumphs!




And speaking of old, a couple of other 60s era classics!


Me


Vince

Around noon Sunday when the temps cracked 105 we hit the road for home. 5 hours in the blistering heat but still a great adventure and well worth it.


100 countries or bust...80 so far.
Rides: Ecuador, Haiti, Laos, Sri Lanka, Tibet & Vietnam

So did you camp at the track? I love camping there but the heat can be brutal. I race cars there every year and I usually camp at the track. It looks pretty dry so the huge mosquitoes probably didn’t swarm you.

No we had to get a hotel. Way too hot to sleep outside.

With all my international travel i'm not a big camper at home anyway. Got enough of that growing up in Haiti and traveling in Africa.

We plan to go back in the fall to watch some of the auto racing. What do you race?

I finally put together a "mashup" of the footage i shot at the races.

Love the sound of the KTMs and the old Triumphs!
