BHF - Where yall gonna Pit ??

Started a new thread for this one - to make sure people take a look.

Where yall want to pit ?

Under trees will be too cold in April (want to be in the sun)

The hot pit area is always crowded - hard to reserve a lot of space.

You guys want to try & pit BEHIND The Tech/CR area. There is that little road that swings around to that other garage (where the Polar Optics guys usually are). Maybe we can put along that road - the very back part of it is also close to T5 to watch all of your friends

What do yo all think ??

Me and Underdog will be there Tonight, That sounds good, behind or close to Tech.

I'll be in a black S-10 with an open Trailer with a SV, a Gixxer and a XR650.

You'll see us Struggling with a huge frikin tent in the dark half wasted.

I like T5 - espcially when its really hot out. But I don't like parking the bikes on that gravel/lava rock road !? (call me a wuss)

Hey Ken/Kruz - It you guys stay in the hot pit area, try to take up a lot of space !! Even if we all don't park there - maybe we can move some EZ-Ups over there and keep the bikes on the pavement.

I shoudl recognize Kruz's trailer &
I'll look for the Black S-10

I've got a black tilt-bed trailer (pulled by my little Honda Accord ) and a Blue/White GSXR #749

Oddy, are you and K-man going up there tonight? If so, we'll figure out a spot when we get there (9ish?) If you get there sooner, save us a spot.

You'd better at least trash your room rockstar style to save some face. What happened to sleeping in your van heavily armed? Oh well...if you need us I'll be joyriding Nick's XR while he's soldering tent poles together.

Thanks! Although, I'm talking about putting on race glass and tires. That's about all I have to do. Although, it's a task. The glass doesn't fit perfect.

I'm trying to iron out my membership whoas w/ NESBA. I changed email addresses and I forgot my password. So, I'm unable to signup for the event and update my membership. I'm going to give them a call in about 15 min.

Looks like I'm out. I can't get ahold of Garth to get my issues straightened out and I don't want to drive all the way up there to be turned away due to a full intermediate group.

Maybe next time.

I can't...I have a baseball game. I left a voicemail w/ Garth...just a waiting game now. If he calls too late, I probably won't be able to get the bike ready in time. We'll see. BTW- Is Cheryl going?

DOC - Garth posted this morning that I is only 3/4 full.

Get your bike ready dude - it he doesn't call you back, just head up there early. I doubt you will get turned away - especaily if there was some confusion with Garth.

More like mid to high 70's. I'm looking at things and there is a chance for the "R" word. There is a little storm moving through Minnesota right now and the southern end might brush us tomorrow around mid-day. The jet stream looks like it will carry the majority of it north of us, so keep your fingers crossed. I'll check again tomorrow morning.

I don't want to take the chance. My gf is going to come up there w/ me and I know she wouldn't mind going up to watch everyone else ride, but I know there are probably 1,000 things she would rather do. However if I ride, it would be worth it to her Or so I think....
