This is something I have been to every year that it has been at the Georgia Dome. If you have never been before, this is your time to go as we always have a blast. Between the tailgating, the race, and just spending the day with friends its a great way to get to know each other.

Last year we had 25+ people roll down with us and I cannot say enough about the fun we had. I will be picking up the tickets Jan. 1st. They are $15 each (general admission) and come with a Pit Pass as well. If you are interested hit me up via this thread or email and I will be sure to put you down. Hope to see some fellow IS owners roll down with us.

No replica, it's the actual bike. The one pictured above was the practice bike so it was minus a few parts that my race bikes had. It's kind of crazy really.

I got all the hand-me downs from them since I was just a support rider so to speak. Shae rode that bike into the SX title that year, however when I received the bike with all the papers and such it showed the VIN and that bike belonging to Ezra Lusk.

So when I went down to practice with him and Shae I asked them what that was about. Well, Ezra actually went into agreement with PC to leave his team and get back onto a 125. He was going to jump on the same bike as Shae. Well the deal didn't fall through but he already had the bikes. So that was how his name ended up on the title.

It was my most favorite bike ever (had 3 of the same bike, practice bike, SX, and MX). I ended up getting a little over 23k for all 3 of them which was a pretty sweet deal.

Some really crazy and nice tracks in GA man...thats for sure.

Nice to see there's some MX junkies on here! I'm on the west coast and actually work for the AMA as a track official. I work most of the races out this way including the SX. I was at San Fran, and Seattle the last few years and work Hangtown, Washougal, Thundervalley, and Glen Helen. I havn't riden much since I was a younger but I LOVE the races. I miss the sound of the 125's too, Lampson rode his old CR125R at Hangtown and it was a kick to hear that thing go buzzing by all day.
