I've done this before...it's a blast. I'm going to change your heading to read sept 6/7 to eliminate confusion

If I got my bike together I'll be there. Got to redo the trans. Even if the trans isn't done and it's together I'll be there doing timed runs.

I'll probably be there Saturday and possibly sunday. If I get the electrical gremlin figured out. Look out for a black 99 R1 in the back of a blue F-150. Stop by and say hello.
