Yeah, this is thread is small enough and I didn't want to write a new one up when fuckall really happened last year. I also put a lot of time into that LeMons history and don't want to see it just be forgotten.Are we just continuing the 2012 thread into the new year?
So what's the weather like in South Carolina in March? Should I start ordering arctic camping gear or buy some new shorts? Or both?
Personally, I'd prefer "sunrise to sunset", but I'm sure everyone will find new and creative ways to get hurt with mere bicycles.Departing from our previous after-hours paddock safety policy of sticking our fingers in our ears and going "LA-LA-LA-LA," we've added official anti-stuntin' legislation to the LeMons rulebook. This was done after reading insurance-industry studies that show Razor scooters have killed more middle-aged car guys than the first-gen Dodge Viper; after seeing one too many LeMons drivers in Speedos doing dirt-bike burnouts in the men's room; and after realizing at Summit Point '12 that police supervision actually makes things way worse. Oh, and after realizing that if you hurt someone in the paddock, you can go to prison. Like, real, shower-stall prison.
The new regulation (Rule 1.8) is about as simple as it gets:
1.8: NO CRUISIN' OR STUNTIN' OR 'SPLODIN:
Except for street vehicles coming to or leaving the facility, no motorized vehicles may be used on track property from one hour after the checker until sunrise. No firearms or fireworks may be used on track property. No "razor"-type scooters allowed ever.
So, the next time you see a liquored-up, Speedo-clad motorcyclist after hours in the paddock, make a citizen's arrest. Or at least shout a warning from a safe distance.
