Well here we are closing on the first year of PSDA running events and I think they have done a great job and going forward will continue to do a great job.. HOWEVER, there is still this ever looming question (and by all rights needed) of minimum weight requirements. Is PSDA looking to implicate this for the 2013 season.

This is JMO. But not only do we NEED these limits but they need to be achievable by a normal person. We dont need to weight K&Ts half Ti bikes, and Menz's bike, and Gardiners junk, and their jockeys then set the limits at that amount. (nothing against these guys) Im all for a minimum rider/bike combined weight but these numbers HAVE TO BE reachable by many!

INPUT PLEASE... Keep it clean

My two cents is if you own the bike then ride it why own a bike and have someone else ride it that's just crazy piss on the jockeys ride your own stuff that's my two cents on it

Every form of drag racing out there has weight requirements for the vehicle with rider on or in it. Those requirements are there for a reason. I agree that the limit should be a reachable amount without spending tons of money to achieve it. I know a lot of people want agree with this but more rules and regulations will help the sport grow.

because right now we can't and be competitive. i am 175-180lbs and there is no way i can ride my own bikes and win in the 775- 825 classes i haft to find a 120-140 rider and its bs.. but when everyone is doing it you haft to too..

will there ever be a rule made not likely when its all about the ## and not the racing
