A few pics
Here are a few pics from my GP weekend...
Headed south from Chicago...
First of many flats. I did luck out with being in the shade, at a gas station with free air, and a bar next door with a bunch of red milk crates/bike stands laying around out back...
After getting another flat on I-74 somewhere in Indiana in the middle of the night, the two guys on the left picked me up. Smiley and Emerson let me throw my tent down at their site. GrayWolf is on the right. Do you see the ridiculously large folding chair on the left?
Here you see Smiley's toy hauler I put the bike in, his diesel beast of a truck on the left, GW's bike recovery truck on the right (Thanks again guys!)
After getting all settled at GW's place and changing the rear tube three times I finally get to the track at about 6pm on Friday. I was trying to find bike parking, but accidentally get cued up to do a track lap. It's hard to see, but the line of bikes went all the way out the gate and on to the street. Luckily the ticket package I purchased included the track lap, I had no idea...
After the track lap, which was a great time, I was routed to the IMS After Dark concert. I didn't know there was a designated bike parking area. I just parked near the stage. Either the staff didn't care or they thought I was suppose to park by the stage...
The following are some terrible Meridian Square photos from my phone...
And the obligatory girl pic...
I didn't see any other DR's or KLR's the entire weekend, other than GW's in the front yard. I had a great time, learned a lot, met great people. I hope GW does it again next year.
