I just called Dish network and they won't have program schedules untill Saturday. We will be at the track then. If we had the correct race time (CDST) to program the DVR we could still do it, I hope.

If you go to the mile don't get seats close to the track. The wall blocks some of the home straight. We usually get seats in row 32 and don't get stuck behind a post.

There's a 1971 xs 650 sitting next to it, that my dad bought new, that's been sitting since '93. It gets restored first. Oh I forgot the '66 Bultaco Matador in the basement.

I've had my Killimanjaro jacket for several years, at least 8 or 9, it's still in great shape. I'm pleased with mine, the only complaint I have is the velcro around the neck is a little scratchy.
