They do charge a handling fee if ordering on line.

Yep, $5.60 but worth not having to wait in the ticket line. I invariably get in a group of Loudpipessavelives advocates.

It's BS to charge a handling fee...for what???? To print your own ticket. What handling?? That just irks me. Noticed also mentioned that prices increase on Friday, but no mention by how much.

Anybody know when the Century race is? I looked at the website, but all I get in a circular run around.

Depends on how occupied the security guys are..lights, plate and helmet are required on the paved roads.

We'll be there, camping in lot C. I'll be on this:

Ill be there

Ill be there but not camping. Staying about 15 minutes away at the Hilton Gardens. Bought tickets online for the Ace Cafe and the parade lap on Friday. This is my fourth year. Its gets better every year. Im looking forward to the Ace Cafe. Get your tickets ahead of time and avoid the lines and hassles. The museum is worth the trip but all the other events are very cool.
Im looking forward to having the GoPro on the bike this year. Hope to get some good video and share it with the grandkids.

Ride safe all, see you there.

Bud

Also, I remember a long wait in a long line at the ticket gate last year and it's be nice to (possibly) avoid that.
but might have out smarted myself. I'll still have to contend with that long line from the highway up to the T-intersection at the Museum when I'll be in sight of the ticket booth. Hopefully I won't get stuck in a gaggle of Cruisers whose solution to idling in a LONG line is to blip the throttle...

I'm going to be filtering around and have no idea where I'll end up. Likely I'll spend some time at a trailer which may be near the Vanson tent in the Paddock. Or somewhere...

Cool...I'll look for y'all. Unfortunately I won't be on an old bike. The lure of electronic cruise control for 400 miles it too much. I'll look something like this:

I stopped by the museum and picked up tickets yesterday. If you are local this will save the 13% BS.

I'll mostly be in the pits with these guys,



but will hopefully find some time to wander about too. Dunno what I'll be on, look for a silver Norton Interstate or my "92 GS bumblebee.

I'll be there but unless my master cylinder is here I won't be on my bike....again. I go every year I can though and I'm looking forward to it. I'll be wandering around with a couple cameras and I'll try to post some pictures.

If I could pull the money, some leathers and make my motorcycle run all at once I would enter the single class. Alas not this year.
