Forecast looks cold, otherwise I'd be in for at least one day. I have to go look at an apartment in naperville that weekend anyway.

Weather.com says hi of 54 on Saturday and 58 on Sunday with no rain in the forecast. That's better than last year. I'll more than likely be there both days.

accuweather says it'll be highs of 47 and 50, respectively, with lows near freezing.

Weather.com is saying a high near 60 this weekend. Looks like decent weather to get a knee down.

I rode Grattan Saturday. It was Sunny and 45 with no wind. Decent weather to give the bike a good shake down.

Yeah, accuweather is showing 63 now, looks like its trending up. Maybe in for sunday, but I've got to check on some things first.

I'll be doing Sunday depending on the weather. This will be my first year doing STT (did Nesba last 2 yrs), because I wanted to hit Autobahn some since it's so close. Do they days fill up pretty quick? Is signing up for the Sunday day on the Thursday before to late? That's what I usually did with Nesba to avoid bad weather.

You'll just pay a little more money if you sign up late. Just like NESBA. A lot of dates do sell out so its hit or miss. If the weather is really nice count on an event being sold out.

I know sometimes Monte will allow people to ride last minute if some people are no shows.

It's going to be in the mid 60s down there according to the forecast.

It's looking like I might ride Sunday as well. The weather looks like it's going to be perfect.

The event is not sold out. SIGN UP!!!!!!!!!

Grosshopper...mind if we pit near you? Though we've done NESBA for a few years, this will be our first with STT, so we're not to sure what the processes and procedures are...we could use a guide!!

There are plenty of spots open. Monte was trying to pawn off spots in advance on the wera board because he has so many.

Look for the big ugly brown van. I'll be there bright and early Saturday and Sunday morning. I can help anyone walk through procedures and sign up. Don't be shy, come by and say hello.

Steve are you riding?
