This shitstorm was opened back in April, regarding the currently suspended masters phenom, Kenny Williams, who was suspended for a positive dope test. I wrote some of my thoughts down in this post when the story first broke about Kenny. Read this article by Charles Pelkey of Velo News. Williams has apparently showed up at a few local training races, to the objection of a few local, non-cheating, ethical type bike racers. It has thrown the Northwest scene into a tizzy over the definition of “suspended” and the definition of “cheating” and the definition of “race.” After Pelkey’s article, there is a sounding board of comments. Here’s my take. Other racers on the scene are criticizing the rider who wrote the letter of objection. Kudos for Mike Hainsworth for speaking up. Suspended means suspended. There should be no place for dopers to keep racing, to keep their fitness sharp for when they make the big comeback. You know Kenny can’t wait to get back to racing when his suspension is up. What do you think?
I recently posted a look from Bike EXIF of the new BMW F800 GS 30th Anniversary model. It’s a throwback color scheme, and the red saddle really completes the look. It also comes stock with the BMW bash guard and hand guards. I took these photos while down at BMW Motorcycles of Utah in Sandy. They were having a big open house event, and I spied this baby being hoisted from the crate. One thing that is lame: it should come with knobbies. Why not spec it out with some TKC 80’s?
