Iraan Rally 2010 -- Report and Pics

Despite a cold morning and overcast skies, the rescheduled Iraan Sportbike Extravaganza went off mostly without a hitch today.

We arrived around 11 o'clock this morning, and when we got there, Carl was directing riders into parking in his bright yellow hall monitor shirt:



The turnout was smaller than in years past, likely due to the reschedule and weather, but there were still plenty of bikes and motorcyclists on the set:



Look! An old-school ZX-7R! Tim Kreitz must be here somewhere:



Heavy Bus Racing making a show of force:



That great Texas band Dingo Sanctuary donated copies of their new CD to the charity raffle:



Bikes lining up for the top horsepower dyno shootout. I don't know who won, but I do know that an N2O-equipped ZX-10R was verified at 201 horsepower early in the day:



Prepping the dyno for a run:



A rather groovy, very stretched ZX-14 gets loaded onto the dyno:



The stunt show featured some tandem trickery this year:



It was all fun and games until this happened. The guy being thrown into the air tried to leapfrog the approaching stunt bike on-foot and subsequently biffed the attempt. Don't worry, he was fine:



Good times. A big thank you goes out to all the sponsors and organizers. I hope to see more of you next year.

Carl and Tim were side by side and snapped the almost exact same pic!

Man, I bet it got LOUD at the dyno!! That's where I would have been, hehe...

I did not see any food pics... How can you have a rally with no food!?

Did you guys play at the rally or just donate the CD's?

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Iraan Rally 2010 -- Report and Pics

Carl made a point of positioning the Dyno kind of away from the main area and pointing the back door AWAY from town! hahahah but fyes your right it was insanely loud. Carl Ran the HeavyBus and even with the exhaust baffle in it sounded like it was going to come out of the trailer! It's funny it's like moths to a fire the Dyno just sucks people in, and every time a Top HP Shootout Bike went in the crowd doubled or tripled! As for the food thing, in the past years Dana and Nancy (The Promoters in years past) prepared FREE food and gave away BBQ and Chips and drinks. This year they didn't want to do all of the extra work to bring food out so, we sent everyone to their BBQ stand about 5 blocks away. It was kind of nice that way they got some huge return even tho they took a break from doing the Rally. Next year there are going to be some changes among them, Bike Rodeo stuff and food would be a great idea too, now if I can just get about 3 clones of Carl,,,,
One for the Stunt Show, One to help with the Dyno, one to cook, one to, Raffle, one to set up the HeavyBus,,, yeah you get the idea. Probably the only one at the Rally working harder than Carl was Fletcher in the Dyno. He spent the entire day doing Dyno runs in the trailer hot loud sweaty and under appreciated, THANKS FLETCHER!

Nah, we just donated disks. I wanted to ride. Besides, between the dynomometer and the stunt show, I doubt anybody would've been able to hear us anyway.
