Its thew weekend of the 8th and 9th of May. North American Warhorse is having an open house. They will have the Starboyz performing. Its a good show and draws a huge crowd. If its anything like last year, they will have demo rides and food. Last year like 5000 people showed. It was awsome. We spoke a little about meeting in Allentown PA Saturday morning and doing a back roads ride to Scranton. This was talked about for PA people coming from Mid PA and Phili area. We can stretch that ride to over 100 miles on the back roads and end at Warhorse with a show and food.
Then on Sunday we head to Pocono for a Team Pro Motion Track day. I will take the orders. Once I have a firm list I will talk to TPM and get a price per person. The more we get, the less it will be per person. But I would say it will be around $150 or less. I will talk to Glen or Linda this week.
Nobody has to do both. But it would be a fun and full weekend. I will be doing both and Photographing the event. Anyone from DML who goes, will get a free Picture CD from Race Day Photo(the people I register). A $70 value.
Come for either day or both. It will be a great time. For people staying over, I suggest you room in Wilkes Barre. It is between Scranton and Pocono and has all the main chain food places. We can even work out a nice group dinner Saturday night. Its only 20 miles fom the track. The hotels are cheaper in Wilkes Barre then the places near the track too.
I think this will make for an excellent time and who know, becaome and anual event. Its a great location. The same distance for the New Yorkers and Phili people. There is no reason we should not get a big crowd.
Herb, don't book and charters. This looks like it will be a firm date.
It would not be an EAST Coast DML gathering with out you.
As for gear, full leathers are a must. If you are going to need to rent leathers from TPM, you will need to contact them directly. 2 piece suits must have a full circumferance zipper, not just a shorty across the back.
You will also need boots, gloves and a full face helmet that will pass tech. http://www.teampromotion.com for further details on track day rules.
Since this is more then just a track day weekend. Maybe we should change the subject line of this string to "DML East Ride weekend and Track Day". It seems we will attract all kinds for this weekend. SOme will enjoy the ride and Starboyz. Other will lose their minds over the track. All will have a good time.
I think we will get more people as we get closer to the date. But we will have to collect the track fee by April first or sooner. I need to get a price based on a number before asking for money. When we have 10 semi firm people, I will get the price. If we get to 20 people it will bring the price down further. But maybe we will put the money towards food. They do not serve at Pocono. With a little extra we can get food catered or at least Pizza's. Or we can give some cash back.
