Almost ready for Monday

Well, today was exhausting. Tomorrow at noon I gotta be at a B-day party for my girlfriend's nephew, so I started gettin shit together for our track day... And it's a good thing. I should've started that like last week...

I put almost 200 miles just from running out to different places, to get shit I didn't realize I don't have what a pain in my ass!

The bike is basically ready... just need to take off the center stand, but we're leaving for BHF tomorrow right after the b-day bash, so I think I'm just gonna take it once I get there. So, any other track-newbs gettin caught up in a clusterfuck of preparation?!?

Time to pass out...

I should know better, but I procrastinated a bit. The bike is ready. Still have to load it though. I have bought nothing really to eat tomorrow, I have nothing organized, and I have a double header that starts at noon tomorrow. I probably won't get home until 6ish. ARGH!!! I'm looking at getting to BHF by about 10:30-11:00pm. I really should have thought ahead!

Oh Man - I can't wait for tomorrow.

Weather looks real good.

Bikes is physically ready - but I'm still not organized/packed.

Yea - stuff ALWAYS takes longer than it should (espcially the first time you do it). So take that center stand off & do what ever else you need to do today. Otherwise you are gonna be up late tonight - or you'll be rushing around tomorrow.

See yall there

well, I'm ahead of schedule
Got the damn center stand off. Exhaust was in the way on the right side, so had to take the exhaust mounting bracket off.. props to suzuki for making it a PITA.

Now, just gotta pack, load all the shit onto the truck and survive the b-bash. Hoping to leave for BHF by 3:30pm

I've been getting ready all day. I probaly have too much stuff for only 1 night and 1 day, but I like to be prepared.

Bike is loaded on trailer waiting to go. Just have to double check my list to make sure I didn't forget anything.

I'm so exited! Its like I'm going on vacation or something.
