I'm already going to the show, so I'll be sure to stop by and sign up for it. Anyone here working the booth or is it likely going to be staffed by the east coast guys?

I also got that email today, very nice of them to let us know.

That email also has a code you can use to get $3 off the ticket price here ----> www.motorcycleshows.com, please use this code when you purchase your ticket. Using the code will help us to come back to the show year after year. I also heard through the grapevine that quite a few track days will be given away, so make sure you register. See you at the show.

The discount code is: nesba

signing up or not ill have to stop by the booth.

Im already anxious for IMS this is just going to make it that much better

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

Your right, I won't be able to sign up if the booth is at an apex. I'll just look for you, and you can show me the way. You will have the recognizable orange CR shirt right?

Looking forward to the show! I'll most likely be staffing the NESBA booth at least one of the days, schedule permitting.

King - I would surmise that the track days given away are the full deal, not the usual free intro sessions. Come on out, sign up for the free day, check out what NESBA's all about!

King,
It will be a full track day just as if you had paid full price. And we will be giving out several days, not just one. The booth will be staffed by our Midwest crew, so familiar faces won't be hard to find.

I encourage everyone to come by, even Fera!

Is the NESBA booth strictly informational or will you have the ability to register new members on the spot?
