Not I! Wish I was, but I just do not think the Tiger is cut out for it!

If I have nothing materializes that weekend, I will make every effort to head out and say hello.

I have been busy trying to figure out life! Funny how that happens sometimes.
I have not talked with Dayrock in a while. I think he was/is in Aus for a while.

Be prepared, Dayrock and Gbord have gotten awfully quick!

He was going ok last year too, but I had him covered. If he goes better now I may have to let some air out of his tires

At the beginign of the year, i had both of them covered. Then I broke my collar bone. Next thing I know, Gbord found 5 seconds on the north course and Dayrock finds a 1:40!

Next year should be interesting. Suddenly, i am the slowest guy!

Dropped the 1:40's to 1:39's man... G-units running 1:37's! I hate that bastard, hahaha. Gonna be fun to just do a trackday with everyone and not have the pressure from racing. Or the other chuckle head racers rubbing you.

Grand course will be a hoot! See ya there Jim.

aaawww, Don't be a player hater.

Should be a damn good time cruising around the Grand Course with you guys!!

I still have the gearing from Daytona, it might be just right for that back stretch from the north to the south!

So what are everyones plans? We should all try to pit near each other. Tuna, are you guys getting a garage? Not sure if myself, sleazy, and dumbrock will be there Sun. night or Mon. morning, but we'll figure it out. I also know a couple others that will be there. We usually try to pit across from the building with the concessions and bathrooms. Who ever gets there first can try and save some real estate. Easy, are you bringing the cooker? To bad your not going to be there the 7th, I remember how excited you got when you saw him at the AMA event.... http://cornerspeed.net/forums/viewto...8d2427ff892e7f

No ****, Greg's gonna be there again?

He went out in front of me as a control rider and I almost punted him through T3. He was going pretty quick but really back off there. Scared me and scared him cause he put his head down after that. Was pretty funny running around North with him.

Jim says he's staying at the lodge for the night(s). But I don't think the garage / lodges. We camping at the pits? May be a little cold for this kid.

Yezzir!

Probably Saturday during the day. I am still 50/50 on skipping my game... We'll see.

Tuna, they put in a cell tower so phones work pretty good. You have PM.

I'm an idiot and so talk to Gboard about this.

I think he's tried everything from 16/43 to 15/45 and 16/45. I think 15/45 is a little short and you'll peg out at the kink. Something a little longer so you can still stay on the power till the brake markers. I think Gboards running 16/45 for the weekend.

Sounds like D rock might need some PT too! Hey watch out for those steps, they can sneak up on you. Especially when walking up stairs.

All that talk and no contest eh? I have to give you some **** after you made me eat that friggin brownie.

Good to meet up with you guys as well. Still had fun on the Grand Course but was looking forward to the North. Remember to keep in touch for a Jennings trip and possibly that new school Aaron is putting together. Maybe something in December.
