Indy MotoGP Kick Off Event - LOCAL RIDERS NEEDED!!

I've received this from Mike Pflum, a local bike enthusiast and organizer of last year's kick off event. We took part last year, it was great fun and I encourage all local riders to join up this year. Let me know if you're interested, send me your contact info via pm or email and I'll forward it to Mike and get you signed up.

Scott

Here are the details:

Event Date: Thursday, Aug. 27th.

They would like for us to assemble on North Street, between Meridian and Penn (where the XDL event is held) no later than 10:30 am. We will form up there.

We will be led by Ducati 2 seater, down Meridian. We will ride around the circle and on down to the 125 South Meridian Parking lot where Red Bull will have their Energy Station set up.

The ride will launch at 11am.
The media event is scheduled to start at 11:30am.

The event itself is to run through the lunch hour and we are expected to be on hand til at least 2PM. About 3 hours in total.

Our target number is between 60 and 75 riders but we can go slightly higher if enough folks are interested.

Same drill as last year. Riders should be decently dressed. Helmets will NOT be required but are recommended. No offensive statements on clothing. No branded logos (that compete with MOTO GP).
We are seeking reliable riders who understand it is a media event and that best behavior is required.

Any one wishing to participate is welcome but they must be accounted for. My preference would be to use e-mail as the principle means for doing that. If you have riders who would like to join us, please get me their names and phone numbers. I will need to monitor the count as we get closer to the date. I'd like to have your lists by noon on Tuesday, the 25th. You can however, forward me names & numbers at any time.

Thank you for your assistance. It was a lot of fun last year. Lets pray for good weather again!

Mike Pflum

Not too late, I'll get you signed up. I just got another email from Mike today...

This is a reminder to all that I need more riders to participate in the opening event of MOTO GP on Thursday. Anyone who wants to participate is welcome to do so. Type of bike is not a qualifier. All brands welcome.

If you are interested or have someone who might be, please pass the word.

Looks like the weather should be perfect this weekend! High is going to be 76 degrees!

I'll plan to see everyone there at 10:30 tomorrow morning, downtown on North Street, between Meridian and Pennsylvania. For those of you who don't know me I'm the tall guy with a beard and long hair on the black 919, Gin's the cute short girl with big curly hair on the yellow 599.

Slight change of plans for me, I was contacted by Mike Pflum this morning and he won't be able to be there tomorrow, I've been asked to be the onsite organizer for the local riders. I'll be the guy up front with the bull horn telling everyone where to go!

Found out the following MotoGP riders will be on hand:

Dani Pedrosa
Andrea Dovisizio
Chris Vermeulen
Cameron Beaubier
Aaron Colton

Should be fun, see you all there in the morning!

I also have to lead the pack, right behind the GP riders and the motorcycle cops. All those Harley guys won't like following a Honda! Maybe I should ride the FJR instead, it's big like a Harley anyway.
