attn: endurance team guys

Was thinking we should get together before the TC day to discuss what we're doing/riding. Was hoping to talk you guys into riding the Hawk cause I think it'll be cheaper (less tires) and a lot harder to hurt myself on. We also talked about getting a set of tires for whatever bike we ended up using, is that still on and if so we should get on it ASAP - dunlops OK w/everyone? Also - got some great tips on how to make a quick-fueler out of a 5-gal bucket. Sorry for the dis-organized rant - what else do we need to figure out??

Preach on brotha!

I'm pretty sure after the other boys do a lap or two around grattan (and beat their "big bike" lap times) they to will be converts to the LW bikes!

more endurance dates and sprint races at Grattan here:

fasttrax schedule

Would be a great place to get a feel for endurance racing (theirs are 3 hours) before we do the 8 hour monster....

How you found us: VTR 996 - in '02
If I'm still on the short list, I'm in. Although I'm hoping you're doing one of the May dates. Can't go on a weekday in April, but May is open for me. Also, no problem with chipping in $.

Let me know.
