I'm riding up several days during the week from Merritt Island as weather permits. I'll be at the Ducati Party Friday, March 5. It will be same place as last year - at the kart track behind Hooters at the Speedway. Starts at noon. Also plan to attend the Daytona 200 on Saturday.
Depending on what's up in the evenings, I'll probably head home most afternoons to take care of the young'un. If something special is up, I might be able to make arrangements to stay into the evening.
Hammer, PM me with your cell number. I didn't hang on to it after Biketoberfest. Also, are you still looking for the choke cable to replace yours?
I intend to go to the party on Friday (trailering up with a buddy and his '76 900SS). Oneducs, I'll look for you there. I hope to meet some of the other people on this board and experience a taste of Bike Week for the first time. Don't forget to bring something for Paul Smart to sign!!!
I was at a bike week in Myrtle Beach a few years back- crap 8 years ago, I am getting old. Look up on top of the hotels and scan they area for snipers. No kidding, the cops were EVERYWHERE that weekend, and they had snipers up on top of the hotels on the strip.
I won't make it til raceday, will try to sit at start/finish line up high in the bleachers. Probaly take a Breemer down, the old lady dosen't like to ride on the back of the Duc.
P.S. My daughter loves it though!!! Daddy, let's take the red Italian Stallion and wheelie!!!
My daughter and I will be at the 200. We're going to be in the unreserved grandstand moving around to keep an eye on the Turn 1 area and be able to see up the front straight as well. We tried this last year and liked the view.
Next year when the kid is 12 and I have to pay for her too, I'll get the good tower seats. I can't see having to pay for an extra reserved seat as long as she can get into the general grandstands free
