I live less than 20 minutes north of the track, and I always have a houseful of buddies from the vintage Suzuki forum. Good times.
Motorcycles on Meridian downtown can be some fun people-watching.
If you are willing to risk missing out due to being out of stock, waiting till after the race on Sunday is where you really can find the good deals. For alot of these guys its the last big set up they will have for the year and rather than pack it up they will make a deal. Case in point, two years ago I picked up a AGV AX-8 helmet they were selling during the weekend at $329, I got on my way out for $175. I also picked up a pair of A-Star gloves listed at $89 for $50.
