I'll be there. Waiting to sign up though. Normally there is not a tire service there for BHF days. Unless one of the businesses show up from Wisconsin, doubt there will be anyone there. I have extra tires if you need them Mopar.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

I'll be there. Gotta sign up one of these days. If any ccs racers are there....would you mind checking out my bike for me? I want to double check that it'll clear tech on the May 10th weekend. I'm pretty sure I got everything (other than the stator case cover), but wouldn't mind having someone other than me check it over.

Neither. Just Blackhawk's day.


I usually bring a few tires just in case and some manual tire stuff. I can be there early in the morning to get that done. Early....like 630/700AM.

I think so. haha. There were a few things that I was curious about. The axle pinch bolts, the way they're sunken in on the R6, how on earth do you safety wire those? I still want to safety wire the brake pad pins in. Other than that and the case cover, I think I should be pretty close. If not, Then I'll be drilling some more holes.

I'll have my 748 there. Just finished putting the engine back together after a broken timing belt & four bent valves. Cross my fingers & hope nothing blows!

If forgot about the bathrooms! I'm in! Can't wait to use them again.

They're so very clean. Heated to 72 so when it's cold out, you can for a long rest and warm up in there

They just need more TP!

They're heated!?!?! Awesome! I can't wait to take a shit at Blackhawk. How many stalls are there? More I hope. I hate waiting in line in the morning during CCS weekends.

How about the showers? No 120 volts AC running through the shower head is going to be wonderful.
