Well, the big weekend in my mind has come and gone again for the year. The Steamboat Vintage Motorcycle Races were a permanent calendar date in my life for 15 years. I rented a condo for the week and never quit smiling. I would see folks I'd met there and only saw there, and I renewed distant friendships for a week every year. I got a new coffee cup at Market on the Mountain each year. I still have two of them and use one every day to remind me of the good times in life. I still have all the T-shirts.
I don't know why you quit; probably the locals got tired of the big crowd. But I never got the feeling it was too roudy. I went to Sturgis once, and that was half more than enough. You put on a classy week of bike races, and I'll always be grateful. They tried it in Utah, and it pretty much flopped from reports from friends who attended last week.
I sure wish you would reconsider. I know you could get any support you need to start back up again. I would rent a condo for that week instantly and ride my '67 R69S BMW all the way from West Virginia. Please consider having us back.
