I'm going, leaving Friday and staying all the way till Monday. Do you need transport for yourself, or yourself + bike + equipment?

Travis is a good guy. He'll want to stay all three days and will need transport for bike + equipment but he travels light. He'll be coaching as well.

Sorry I can't make it Travis. I checked tonight and looks like we have plans. Is this the maiden voyage for the new bike? Have fun!

Ohhh wait, Travis, with the MV and the R1 right? I just talked to you a bit at the last STT... Jon, Asian guy, talked to you around lunchtime with David. I can give ya a ride, the trailer is a bit small but I've seen other people transport 2 bikes with it before so I don't image it'd be a problem, just lemme know in advance so I can add some eyebolts so it'll accomodate an extra bike.

Grattan is a track. http://www.grattanraceway.com/

Supposedly one of the most technical and difficult tracks around. It'll be a blast to ride it for the first time!

Oh and Travis, if you end up getting a ride from me, you better be willing to be my personal instructor for a session or two and teach me the fast lines

If you can get something with a hitch you can take my trailer.

to be honest i wouldn't know a fast line if it jumped up and hit me in the face! but I'll do my best

actually grattan is pretty easy once you get use to it. the problem is having the nerve to deal with all the blind corners. but with all the elavation changes it's never boring
