Dirty Girl's Past Road Racing Seasons


Five great years! Wonderful vintage racing with my Honda NS 250 F, which is still running vigorously after 5 years of road racing; pretty good for a two-stroke street bike that is now over 25 years old. Mind you, I'm over 25 too... and I'm still eagerly learning more about racing, about my bikes, and about motorcycling, and this season was a good year for learning.

Another fantastic season of vintage racing, the NS and I enjoyed considerably improved performance with last winter's updates. My lap times, particularly at Mosport, improved considerably over last year. This is also the first year my silencers have remained in place on the bike throughout the entire racing season.

Third Season; Yes, it still takes me a month to find my packing list and get organized for racing, but by now at least I know what I need to organize! In 2007 the NS 250 benefits from updates to the front suspension, which turned out to be quite overdue.

Second Season; well, I may have learned a lot in my first season, but that didn't deprive me of the opportunity to learn and re-learn in my second season. The NS 250 F runs very reliably, apart from shedding silencers, but by the end of my second season I'm starting to contemplate updates (well, 'period correct modifications' in the vintage world).

Rookie Season; my first year of vintage motorcycle road racing. Yes, in theory, racing is about going fast. Turns out there's way more to it then that. It's also about standing in the right line up at the right time, which was considerably easier than learning to back up a trailer. Let's just say I had to learn a lot of new stuff to go racing!
