    Short and skinny:

    My money arrived the day after Cornerspeed in March was considered "sold out"...I'm currently first in line on a waiting list.



    Aaron went so far as to personally call me to discuss the situation and some options.

    He told me not to worry and that I should still plan on making this trip.

    He suonds like a smart man, plan on making the trip!


    PS. for those going, when are you draining the coolant out of bikes (assuming you have coolant in) Is it worth leaving it in for the trip down and doing it there, or should I not worry once its loaded in the trailer?

    Generally speaking I pay no attention to that...

    OH YEAH!!! 2 VALVE AIR COOLED ...NO WORRIES!!!

    Seriously, having made the trip several times, unless we are in the midst of a really cold snap, you should be OK. But I would watch the weather and make the decision as late as possible!

    There will be no loss of life, Dave.



    Since there's some curiosity about Plan WTF, I went ahead and explained it below.



    Plan WTF: We follow the game plan, I follow the RV with Carlton and his equipment down to VIR. Instead of bringing my 929, I'll pack my FZ1 (with bags) and ride to Deal's Gap from VIR. Spend time exploring that area for a couple days. Ride back up to VIR, strap the bikes in, get my motors and drive home.

    That does not sound like a Bad either Well Played.

    Deals gap is How far from Vir 4 Hours Maybe?

    Blue Ridge Pkwy all the way...I'd say 4hrs isn't out of the realm...

    Gotta see the sights if I don't get a spot in this class! Either way it's gonna be great.

    Yep.

    School on Monday, Track time on Tuesday.

    Aaron said not to worry which is great, but in reality until I get a confirmation I'll remain slightly concerned.....nature of the beast.

    If he knows youre coming from MA, Im sure he would be more straightforward if there was a good chance you werent getting in the class. At least say, theres a pretty good chance we wont have space

    Re: V.I.R. - V.I.R. - V.I.R. WHO'S WITH ME?

    Hence Aaron saying "don't worry".

    He's aware of my location and even mentioned that it was a definite consideration which put me in the #1 slot on the wait list.

    Going on my first impression of Aaron, I feel pretty confident that if he wasn't going to be able to accomodate the situation he would have said so on the phone the other day.

    See, I'm kinda worried but I'm kinda not...ya know?

    Not to get all environmental-ist on you but drain it where you can collect it, its a big time ground water and everything else poison. And for god's... make that dog's sake do not leave it for an animal to drink!

    and I'm still big time jealous about this trip.

    Ok, dont feed it to the dog, but I can still make coolant pops right? I mean, they're one of my favorite summertime treats
