Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

I'm happy to report that Jack and I will be shooting and riding with ROGUEat Barber. Should be a sweet couple days!

The release date for the new GSXR600 is mid to late March from what I've heard, so I'm not going to make it next month.

Sweet you will have a blast. We have been doing this for about 5 years now. This will be the second year at Barber. Having the private dinner in the museum is worth the trip in itself! We use to go to VIR and do both courses.

Yes, it's a private club event. There are a few spots left. Definitely a good time. I've been to a few but my fav would be Pahrump when Colin Edwards showed up after winning the WSB Championship. Was a good time.

Wife's birthday... so I am out. She is cuter than you Ron.

Not to mention my middle daughter has SuperSectional Dance Competition the same day.

Have a great time! It should be warmer than this past weekend was.

10 - 13 hours. Depending if you miss traffic in the major cities.

Just secured my ride, I am all set.
