The First Roadracing
Season of the 21st
Century is Off to a Great Start !!
OMRRA racetrack promoters
hosted a swap meet the same weekend as the races. It was
a great idea...the event drew bike
enthusiasts from both Oregon and Washington in by the thousands! Suddenly the
grandstands started filling up with bikers and sportbikers that sat there
with their newly purchased used bike stuff... most of these people were seeing
the very first time !!!
Portland is a lot different than Daytona. The pavement, climate, and track
design all change the tuning requirements. It's a roadcourse that has a
horsepower zapping long front straight. The kind of track that tests the
new equipment in a different way.
These new roadracing fans weren't disappointed as the top OMMRA racers rode the wheels off their Yamaha R6's...
