Well, I never really wrote much this year for AFM…In fact, I only did one write-up, and that was last round (R6 @ Infineon). I’d thought about it, but never really found much motivation for it.
I read once—in a blog—that if you are going to have a successful blog, that you need to write shit constantly…and that you shouldn’t spend too much time on it…just get it done, blast it out, rinse, repeat….F-that. I spend, like, 4-5 hour per blog that I write. At LEAST!
I’m not really sure WHY it takes me that long…I mean, I type decently fast, I never pre-plan what I’m going to actually say, I barely proof read my posts… I simply think of a topic and go PEW PEW PEW! Why the hell does it take me so long?
In this case, my topic is the the entire 2012 year of AFM.
Lawdy lawd, where do I begin? I’ve got the memory of an elephant—that’s been mortally wounded and had it’s tusks poached—so it’s not like I can actually remember many specifics about round 2…or 3 or 4 or hell, even round 7, just a few days ago.
Someone crashed…that’s all I remember.
Someone else crashed…Kinda like R2.
Okay okay okay…more happened.
Metz used his brakes
GoGo did a wheelie
Someone dressed in drag….ish
And Ricky showed off for the camera
Now lets skip forward to Round 4 where we were at a different venue…a track that I enjoy shooting MUCH more than Thunderhill.
Kinda like R2, someone crashed…wait a minute…that’s the same guy from R2!
And GoGo did another wheelie! What the hell? It’s like the same shit as past rounds… hrm…
Garrett Willis showed up this round tho, and let some of the top 600 guys know that there’s always someone a little bit faster…even if he is riding a Kawi.
And no…I didn’t purposely shoot a bunch of pics exactly like this as a shameless plug to GoPro for all the help and support they’ve shown me over the last few years… oooorrrrrr did I? ;)
So much for Round 4… Let’s go back to Thunderhill for Round 5!
Dave Raff did a wheelie!
So did Dan…and I nearly shat my pantalones when he did, cause I was certain I was about to get ker-plinko’d by an upside-down SV.
Umm…Round 6…I already posted a blog about it. See it here, if you’re not tired of reading yet.
And onto the last round of the year…
I got the bird.
I got the bird again.
Doing the Bernie
If Metz hadn’t scratched up the side of this bike…this would be a cool shot. But instead, the shot looks like garbage.
And lastly, this is probably my favorite shot of the whole weekend. Maybe the whole year: My good buddy Tim
That’s it. I’m done. It’s taken me 3 days to write this. Thanks for watching. Maybe I’ll see you guys again next year.
