Deathtrap cycles, Austin's foremost experts on all things two wheeled and British, had a get together last weekend. Deathtrap had bands, food, booze and plenty of bikes to gawk at. Best of all, it was far enough away from the madness of SXSW to take a breath and relax. Most conversation centered around the F1 track opening soon here in Austin. Specifically, the lovely idea of getting some track time in during the off season. The plan is to get a bunch of folks to buy single cylinder bikes under 500 cc's with leathers and try to keep the budget around 3000 bucks per racer. Real racing on a real track with real motorcycle fans. Awesome. Keep in mind this is a long term goal, but I'll keep you posted.
