O.K. here it is.......my first thread.......I think. 40 years old and recently find myself suffering from short term memory loss.....oh well. So MotoGP, Rossi, Hayden, Stoner, Pedrosa and the rest of the gang are going to bless us with their presence at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Laguna Seca is no go for poor white trash like myself and Indy is a stretch but we (me and a bud) have committed to make the trip. The plan: Leave Alabama the Beautiful on Wednesday September 10, 2008. Ride 8-10 hours without benefit of an interstate. Camp on Wednesday night. Meet the rest of our gang (Hulsey's Angels) named to honor my 67 year old dad who still rides trackdays at Barber and Talladega GP on a REGULAR basis. Anyway, meet the rest of our gang in Indy on Thursday. Do the race thing (staying in a hotel) Thursday-Saturday night. Big race finale on Sunday. Leave the track after the races. Ride 2-4 hours and camp on Sunday night. Wake up on Monday morning and come on home. I will be on an 07 DR650 and my buddy will be on his KTM RXC 640. Not sure if I need help planning or if I just wanted to tell the world that we were gonna be able to go to the race All I have at this point is a DR650 and an intense itch to go on this trip.......so bring on the guidance, advice and well wishes. Oh yeah, I mentioned that I'm poor white trash; the total trip budget is $600 not including tickets or bike and supply preparation prior to embarking. With that in mind I need your best LOW BUDGET guidance to prepare for my first significant road trip. So.......Lets get it on!!!!!!!!!!
