Ride Share to Barber?

Looking for anyone interested in going to Barber in October and November.

Lockharts are already full, so anyone else wanna go? I'd love to save some gas money. Have trailer big enough for a few of ya.

Second best track in the country, prettiest one for sure as well.

(Also, they have the only "A" SED days in the country on the following Monday of both dates.)

according to the schedule on the Nesba website the SED on 10/13 is an "I" day. Not sure if I can afford it though. I wonder if any of the Lockhart travellers are interested in it that way I can take their spot for the journey back and get back in time to work.

I'm interested too but it looks like I is full on Saturday for both Oct. & Nov. Am I silly for still wanting to go down there & only ride 1 day?

If the one has an I SED day on Monday... you'd get two days.

Hmmmm. Food for thought. NESBA site still shows space avail. in the I SED day. Definitely ups the ante though...

Understand there a a few top tracks I haven;t been to yet. BUT, of the many that I have been to, Miller is the safest, fastest and the best track. Barber is second. COMPLETELY different experiences, from the same track designer.

WSBK riders called it the top track in the world. I wouldn't know, but they would certainly have a better perspective on comparisons than most of us.
