    I didn't know there was a camp 6 that close to where the show is being held. I was going to camp to save money but the convenience of staying that close could be worth it.

    Most of the ramps are full anyway.

    If the interest is strong enough, perhaps someone will start over with a competing show. I've heard some other cities are starting their own version, but don't know any specifics nor do I care enough to research it. The more shows the better. We are the beneficiaries.

    I'll probably put the $8 in my gas fund. I had a good buddy display one of the coolest rigs that has actually seen years of racing without even a mention from the organizers. I like riding bikes not looking at them, not that it matters as it'll be a great event regardless, just not my cup of tea.

    Hopefully within the next few months for the hitch but not going with a bike rack. I'll tow a small trailer.





    Everyone needs somewhere to call home and river banks are nice to hang out on.



    Are you buying?

    If I go, I'll pay for a cup of tea.

    If you come to So. Oregon I'll pay for dinner and drinks. :-)

    Go light with that rig. If I remember, I think you are about 2000lb tow capacity. That gets eaten up fast on a small trailer with a bigger bike (or two). Doable, just watch the numbers. Those newer aluminum trailers might be worth a look. Make sure it comes with "grown-up" wheels/tires.

    What do you mean "IF" ? No reason not to unless of course you get a better offer then of course you'd have to take that. :wink:

    2400 lb. I'm being very careful of what I'm putting in it - no plywood flooring (just carpet over foam), no plywood bed frame like so many others have, etc. I need to put my trailer up for sale and buy a lighter one. I agree about the grown up wheels/tires, they make a difference. Just like riding the Superbug :pynd with the van there are trade offs but worth it.

    Maybe we can share a room since we're both driving long distance? I'll buy the tea this time and then you can come down to medford for dinner?

    Alright, I shit. Or I got off the pot. I'm not really sure which one is better, but I'll see you there (the lunch gathering and One Moto show, but I can't make the race). I guess that means I owe Ladybug a cup of tea!

    You can stay over at my place. I'm the one in the brown tarped high rise. I have plenty of room for company...and for Earl Grey.

    Haha, found my own room. It's an Airbnb. The owner described it as a small blue bungalow near a brown tarped high-rise????

    Too many people for you? Make sure you go early one of the days. It seems all the hipsters and 'scene' types come out at night.

    Me, I've found a mid-morning visit after a nice breakfast with friends and a ride over there is the right move. Typically, that's when you have the passionate types there to really check out the bikes and not just to be seen.

    I'm looking forward to it as there are always a pile of rad bikes to check out.

    Hopefully that's enough time to see the One Moto Show, have lunch visiting with friends, and get to Salem for the Flat Track Races for those that want to do it all.
