    For those that know Troy

    I was cleaning out the garage a few weeks ago and found this old article from my Westwood days (I think this is from 1987).

    The flying "W" in the back is Troy Burstyk (Riding School Instructor, Track Day Organizer Supremo, & General Good-Guy)...

    Troy does ride much better these days.

    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    He looked a lot better on the cover of last Thursday's Mission City Record:

    Troy Burstyk races his supermotard around the River’s Edge Road Course at Mission Raceway Park Monday afternoon during Westcoast Superbike School’s Track Daze event.

    I remember the environmentalsists fighting the track over and over saying it was unduely disturbing and causing to much stress on the wildlife. Oh man those were great days.

    Wonder how that wildlife is doing now?

    I asked Troy once how many times he's crashed. He wasn't sure but said he would guess "Over a hundred". Then added that was pavment crashes. If he counted dirt bike crashes that number would be a lot higher. Crazy bastard.

    Broken neck a few years ago still hasn't slowed him down.....Man of steel!

    Alas I never got to see Westwood
    I can't see Vancouver ever getting another racetrack now, but I'd be all in favour of Vtwin Vince's idea of flattenning the houses on Westwood and rebuilding the old circuit

    I'm of to the Centenial TT at the Isle of Man next year. Anyone else going?
