D's Dirt Bike Birthday Party

D had his birthday party at the race track.. it was a few days after his actual birthday but Monday and Tuesdays are the only private days. When I showed up he was getting dressed.. hmmm? His dad shown in this picture with a bright orange safari hat- found his old gear, helmet, goggles and chest protector from the "old" days of racing. D thought it would be fun to wear it for his party and show it off. Look at this face mask.. ancient. If he would have had this one when he wrecked last year his braces would have been torn off. Oh how he hates the camera. Who could resist these pink and red bone pants.. WOW how things have changed. Although a lot of the guys wanted this gear to come back in style.Then he got serious and changed into his new birthday suit.. New Thor gear. ahhhhhhh..now that feels better. This guy is training for the heat with a sweat shirt on.. wow it was already hot.
This is Mr. C, seen in previous post on the Flops well without the helmet of course.
The little guys hanging out waiting for the storm that passed right over us.. Not a drop of rain hit the ground.. Thank you mother nature.
Mr. C again giving a little guy a lift.
And then there is G... our resident model also seen in previous Flop post. He hurt his back the day before and wasn't feeling too well. So he sat and watched most of the day.
D with the dirty mouth and his ever present gallon of water..which is a good thing.. I think I bitched enough this spring that he got the point that he needs to drink...drink.. I would say that to him. It gets so hot, then them in their gear, they come off the track blood red.. I am always yelling.. " GET SOME WATER" They do good, once in a while I have to actually force them to drink.
The camp. He had about 30 riders show up, some parents and a few little non riders which his dad then took off to the side and was throwing them into training.. His dad is always up for helping the little guys.

I took more but that's it for now.. Next week..races. yeah...
