    Sounds like a great time! Sorry to be anal, but the flyer says Indiana Motor Speedway. Are they referring to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway? Also, would this be a ride for my V-strom (stock deathwings) or my DRZ400S (50/50 IRC Gp-1s)?

    Looks good to me. I don't even have any gigs booked that weekend! (At least not yet) I'll have to see if I can talk Pinktoad into it...

    I'm going to try to make this ride. I'll probably trailer the bike to Indy though. 2.5 hours on I65 in December doesn't sound like fun, but the rest of the ride does. If anyone else from NWI wants to hitch a ride let me know.

    Looks interesting, had surgery last week on my right elbow so not sure if I will be up to it or not yet.

    No accident just 1/2 inch bone spur on the elbow that put a nice rip in the tendon, should have had the spur removed along time ago.

    We might opt to catch up with the group at some point along the route. I'm not so keen on riding in Indy if it's not completely necessary..

    It did sound very interesting, maybe in the early spring.
