Going up on Sunday afternoon and camping at the park accross the street from the track. Riding Monday and Tuesday.

I'd like to actually meet some of you guys this time around. We keep doing roll-calls but when I am at the actual events I don't know who is from CLSB...any ideas?

I drive a ugly old beat up maroon van and my bike is a scratched up red/white 01 CBR600 F4i. I wear white/black/red SYED leathers and I'm the bald guy playing guitar in the avatar. A free beer to anyone who stops me and says "HOWDY"!

I don't think you can miss me; I'm the vertically-challenged guy that looks to be about 21 and I'll be there with my less-than (visually and audibly) quiet CBR. Let me say Hi first though, so I can get that free beer

Welepro and I will be arriving late monday afternoon, camping across the street and riding tuesday. I'm easy to spot, all white leathers on a black/silver 954rr, the only one with yellow RRs. And welepro is the only guy with chrome rims on the track, lol, he is also on a 954. I tend to be shy, so don't be afraid to stop over and say hey. I always have extra beer too! see ya...

All right fellas - I will see you there.

As for camping - just make sure you guys call ahead. Some other thread made it sound like the popular camp ground across the street was closed this year - I don't have any facts, I'm just passing on what I heard.

I'll be riding Monday. First time on the track at RA. Looking forward to stretching out the Gix1K.

Go easy when cresting the front straight. Bmoney looped it there last year!

I'll be there shooting both days.

that's because Bmoney doesn't like it when people pass him on the straight so he sticks his elbows way out...next thing ya know he's doing his Flying Nun imitation.

Tuck! Bmoney, Tuck!

Did he ever! I remember when he walking back into the pits without his bike. His bike was waaay down the track. He had come off at that pavement stripe just where the rise is on the front straight. On my bike, I can just barely hold it wide open there, but with his GSXR1000, the extra horses make that a very iffy proposition.

He thought he was basically ok, then he turned around. We saw his underwear! There was a nice hole worn through the leather back there, so he wisely went to the med shed to get it cleaned up. He will sure have stories to tell his grandkids. I still tell folks about that one.
