    Gainesville is on the 2010 schedule for sure ….. we will come straight from Daytons Bike Week and hit the Gatornationals on the way back west.

    FYI: We are headed to Panama City Beach next week for the Thunder Beach Rally and the new car will be there as well … come on out and say Howdy if you are in the neighborhood.

    Over & Out,

    Don’t know Jeff personally but from what I have seen from Jeff on these blogs and his web sites…He is the man to get behind and be supportative.

    I had PCB on the dance card after the Leesburg Bikefest (riding out in the morning), but it looks like we may have a buyer and closing next week on another business in the motorcycle industry. Worst case we will see you at Myrtle Beach next month or PCB in the fall.

    I hope you make some nice sales at PCB and I am looking forward to seeing that baby run down the track.

    Please let me know what rallies you are displaying at this year.

    A couple of weeks ago I saw the new “Desperado Camaro” during a testing session at one of our local drag strips. The car was absolutely screaming fast! I watched the second pass on the car and it ran a mid 7:50’s at 190 mph. Outstanding! Later, I was shocked to see Jeff Nicklus climb out of the car back in the pits! I did have an opportunity to talk to Mr. Nicklus, as he was signing some autographs, and he told that The Desperado Camaro was going to complete the rest of the 2008 NHRA on a limited basis and they were doing the entire NHRA circuit in 2010. A motorcycle company doing a race car, very cool.
