Hmmm. crickets chirping....

I got a trailer full of bikes and a truckload of CRs. This might be a good weekend for those of you who want some personal attention. I used to love that 2 CRs to each member ratio at Mid America.

I'm on the fence about this one......Gingerman is not my favorite track, but I do love the Thirsty Perch and the area and the fact that it's never very crowded.....decisions....will the GF abandon me if I do my 20th track day?

Jim, you really need to put in the request for a weekend leave from the senior home and come play.


I'll be there both days.

Slicks mounted on the gixxer ready to roll on the track.


Regarding the drive there, how long would you say it takes from say Schaumburg?
Is camping free at the track?

Isn't there a minimum height and age requirement that you have to make Steve? You better bring an i.d. and your KISS platform shoes.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

Nah, the longer you are around the more fun it gets. Throw out a slow pitch and let Steve swing. It's not like he is going to get around the diamond. Historically speaking.

Ps
Just finished up putting the new clutch plates in the Mille. There are a few more loose ends to tie up tommorrow and she is ready to load.

Welcome to the end of your disposable income. We are planning on getting in to Gingerman late afternoon/early evening. I think we will be pretty easy to spot. 24' black trailer w checkered flag awning and another 10X20 canopy set up for the 6 bikes we will have with us and a 10X10 easy up for our tire change/work table area.
Stop over and visit, we will do what we can to help get your weekend off to a smooth start.

ready ......set....

We have most of "our" stuff loaded. Our guest team members will be loading before noon friday, then the fun kicks off.


I hardly wait to get back on my bike(s). I have not ridden them since Nelson Ledges at the end of June.
