As well as my favorite food its also the nickname of one of my Favorite racers

Here is a little bit of text I found about Gene.....

Gene Romero was once one of America's Greatest Motorcycle Racers. Nicknamed Burritto, Romero raced Motorcycles on the AMA Grand National circuit. In the old days when Men were Men this included all types of racing, Flat track (mile/half mile/short track) Road Racing, and TT (a type of motocross and flat track). Romero's skill earned him wins in each class including the king of them all the Daytona 200 road race in 1975 and Grand National Champion #1 plate in 1970 as well as beating the pants off of racers like Paul Smart, Giacomo Agostini and even King Kenny Roberts. Romero has raced several brands of motorcycles including Harley Davidson, Yamaha and his personal favorite Triumph. Gene was also the head of Honda's flat Track program in the 80's. Although Gene does not sling his leg over a motorcycle any more (because he's been there and done that) He now runs a Flat track motorcycle racing series on the west coast.
