The foyer in our room at Ho-Jo's makes a good spot for late-night bike prep on a mini road racer.

Stuffy racing instructors frown upon looking back, but they never taught Kevin Schwantz or Valentino Rossi.
IMG_7269editScoot.jpg
Okay, barging your way past a scooter may not be enough to gain hero worship, but at least we're out there.

Duke Danger rides off into the sunset at Grange.

Here he comes to save the day...Duke, Duke Danger's on his way! (Yeah, sometimes we're dorks.)

Honda XR100s are a popular bike at CMRRA events, and the racing is usually this tight.
IMG_7519web.jpg
A contrast in style. Knee dragger versus moto - just beautiful.

Say it with me now... Soo-pur-mo-to. It will be huge soon, trust us.

As the leaders on more powerful bikes streaked away from our stock NSR, we had a few lonely races at Grange.

Although down on power compared to some of the others in its class, the NSR50R has the corner speed to keep up with anything out there.
IMG_7563web.jpg
Duke Danger says the NSR50R fits like a glove. Well, he sure looks right at home on the little Honda ripper.

'Mind your Ps and Qs Duke, and no stuffing the kids!' Al Lyons runs the CMRRA operations.

Supermoto kicks butt no matter who you are or how big you are!

It’s not just boys who have fun with their little toys, as Kitty Brooks (16) demonstrates.

While everyone at CMRRA races are super-friendly in the pits, most of the racers are completely focused once on the track. Check out the intensity in the eyes.
IMG_7643web.jpg
Small bikes and big egos lead to close action on the track.
IMG_7628web.jpg
MCUSA’s NSR (67) had a tough time hanging with the XR100s that boast double the displacement and three times the torque.

Whadda-ya-know. Here's more Duke racing action from Grange.

48 looks intent on keeping his spot.

Honda XR100 dirt bikes make surprisingly strong mini road racers, and the action on the track can be fierce.
IMG_7662web.jpg
Duke valiantly tries to keep a more powerful Honda XR100 behind.

Sometimes the only way to get to the front is to barge your way through.

Kenny knows that he and Duke were stuck in second place.

Like the fearsome Canadian Bottle-nosed Dolphin, Duke Danger toys with the opposition before taking them down.

Full tuck is not so easy to attain when your belly is bigger than your bike's fuel tank, as Kenny finds out here.
IMG_8665ed.jpg
An eclectic mix of racers and mini machinery head into Turn 1 at the Streets of Willow.
IMG_8666ed.jpg
Anxiously waiting on the starting line...engines bumping and thumping in time. In mini racing you can have your cake and eat it too.

Duke Danger defies his huge age disadvantage on the way to a second-place overall in the Formula 50 class.
IMG_8676ed.jpg
A quartet of NSRs led by Radly Baird (320), Justin Ducat (83), Scott Gilbert (119). Their combined ages don't amount to that of the author (67). Baird and Ducat split race wins, but Duke would go on to take second-place overall in the Formula 50 races with two runner-up finishes.

A bunch of grown kids riding mini-sized roadracers fulfill racing fantasies inexpensively and with relatively low risk.
IMG_8663.jpg
The start is where races can be won or lost, just like in full-size racing.

Kenny's antagonist during his four sprint races is this guy, number 20 - Benny Solis jr.
DSC02411ed.jpg
When all was said and done, both Kenny and I had ridden the bajezzus out of the NSR50R, won second place in the endurance race, and scored four overall podium finishes in our sprint classes. Not bad on one set of stock tires and less than $10 in fuel.

In the heat of battle, Danger looks the part of a factory racer.
