What Sunday is this??? I might make the drive (in my GP of course) just to meet up with you guys, since there aren't any Bonneville clubs around here.

Man, you must pour all of your cash into that baby. I'm really impressed with what you have done in such a short time.
Hope the headers work out in time and you can make it. Good excuse to try them out on an hour drive.
I'm not age biased.....if you don't mind chilling with someone more than twice your age.
Looking forward to it, no problem hanging with older/younger people. You have more knowledge and experience for me to learn. Knowledge is good.
Hopefully my TOGS will be on so Well be close in mods, me rockers, you DHP, going to PM him and order them tommarow.
As for my mods, I'm fortunate to get a high paying job while in College, my shop is booming and I've been working 55-60hr weeks for roughly the last 3 years, 40hrs is like a holiday, So this year is the year of the Bonneville for me, next year all my cash goes towards my property, buying 4 flat and renting, got big plans. I always liked the poster of "Motivation for Higher Education" and the picture is a nice house and garage full of Muscle cars and Exotics.

I can get there whenever, just might be a little hung over before noon. I'm sure there'* some place close by to catch an "eye opener" and shoot the breeze for a while.

Shawn it'* Sunday May 23, probably around 3 hrs from you, about how long it took me to get to your house.

Ok, May 23rd. I can probably make it to that, just have to take it off work and hope my car is fixed by then. 3hrs. isn't much of a drive to me, and its worth it to hang out with you guys and talk Bonneville for a little. I just don't know the area, and I'm not good at giving or understanding directions, so I would need some good directions once I get in the area or I WILL get lost.

Ditto; I may be able to make that. (This gives me enough lead time to try and get the rust stains off the rear wheel openings... )

Am mainly replying to this topic now to ensure that I'll get reminder notifications about it whenever someone else posts here...

Driving directions through this Yahoo link look easy.

This conference center seems to have all the amenities right there.

If you read a little further up on the History, it'* perfect for a "social event" with plenty of room to get some good group shots.
Bring your cameras for some photo ops. I'll have mine for sure and will post them when I return home a week later.
I'll PM my cell phone # to Steve and Taylor and anyone else who wants it when we get a little closer to the date.
Hope you can make it Shawn too. I need to learn some tricks on running with my Autotap and other things.
Sharing knowledge go both ways. I don't even pretend to know everything.

Yes, Sunday May 23.
Anytime before my seminar begins with dinner that day at 6:30 pm.

I land at the airport on Saturday night around 8:00 pm and should be at the Harrison Conference center hotel by 9:30 pm

I know most of you young bucks like to sleep in till noon but if you forced yourselves up and could make it there Sunday for lunch between 11-1pm, we would have all afternoon to gather before my dinner engagement. Then it would give you all time to return before it gets too late. You probably have school or work on Monday.

I was thinking I would leave my house around 7:30-8am, which should put me there sometime between about 11 & 12. I'll be taking the day off work tommarow, and just have to make sure I have the $ for gas, and I will probably be there!
