UMRA 24 Hour Race – Grange Motor Circuit, September 2017

In Travel by AbhiLeave a Comment

I was enjoying a margarita at lunch at Gilbert’s El Indio when my phone lit up with a number from Lake Forest, California. Kawasaki is in Lake Forest, so it must be them, right? They’re probably asking when I’ll be returning the Vulcan S loaner, so I just let it go to voicemail. Another margarita later and I felt bad about ignoring the call, so I listen to the message. It’s not Kawasaki – rather it’s someone who used to work there. I hear the voice of Jeff Herzog, former Senior PR Coordinator of Kawasaki, and he tells me “I’ve got a super fun project if you want to do it…doing the 24 hour mini bike on a Z125.” There was more to the message but I skipped it so I could immediately call Jeff back to say yes.

Here’s one place to catch the entire story and see how it went:
