If anyone ever decides to attend one of these,,,,,,just get the nose-bleed section seats.
Goddamn chuckleheads in the lower levels felt the need to stand up when there was stadium seating. No need to stand.
Diann and I spotted some unused seats up high behind the starting line and we had a great view of the entire track all the time.
The pomp and circumstance combined with the racing IS better than sitting at home watching it on TV.

I'll go back next year too if the level of competition is as close as it is this year.

Really,,we ought to go in together and reserve a skybox.
Price would be workable with 15 or 20 of us.
Lets do the skybox thing next year!

Rick, I did a quick search about getting a skybox.
It's more than I was lead to believe.
Pricing starts @ about $175 for bare bones nothin supplied if 20 people sign up,,,, to many times that amount for servants, booze and pretty girls.

Still sounds fun.

Just talked to Mark about the Treeman Ride. I'm on call and told him I'm sick about not being able to join in.

I'm planning on getting there some time on Friday. Does the DS ride have a lot of pavement?

I'm going to shoot for a kitchen pass, but as I'm currently printing my flight schedule for the week I'm probably going to have to make it a day trip on the DL, and just shoot the c.h.i.t. with you FF's at Mark's for a while and head home.

Barney, I still have these KTM rad guards I'll bring for you.

Madhouse, I have something for you too Sir.

Thanks skid=mark!!

Finding out tomorrow when the ETA is. Just missed the cut-off to ship it today. Man those guys don't mess around.
Apparently they are liquidating KTM's just like Daphne did, opting out of the product line.

Ebay listing
Delivers for under $8800.
Fixed my profile reflecting the newborn's arrival.

You are gonna like this scoot. I have never ridden one but other think they are great. Let us know if you want company on your virgin ride - or maybe you want a honeymoon for a few hours...


BTW - did you notice you were the 23,000th post! Awesome... go PAR! Where riding the the MAIN topic!

I have a tradition of bringing NEW bikes into the living room where I can cristen it with wine and review all the new stuff....

Have fun!

Cool beans!
It would be a hoot if anyone else were there to give me a refresher course on using a kick starter Been eons since I had a bike with that provision.
Since the # 23000 sort of looks like 000"E5" in in a mirroer, guess I'll call the bike Sergeant.
The living room tradition is great! Might plagiarize that ceremony. Good one!


Having it delivered to Commstructures 101 E Roberts Road in order to avoid the extra fee for lift gate equipped truck for residential delivery.
Time and exact day of delivery should be known by EOB today.
