See you there?

I'll be there for the Sat. race.
Last time I was at this track it was Beaver Run, I think. Concession stands etc., still under construction.

Weather for the weekend looks good. How about a  ST.O non-meet at the Honda tent?
See you there?

After Sat. race we will be staying here, > Days Inn - 1370 West Chestnut St., Washington, PA..
Those familiar with that area, any suggestions for a good route from the track to hotel?

As a side note.
Stopped yesterday at my local MC dealer to inquire about tickets, discount coupons etc..
Asked the sales manager, "Eddie, leaving for the MotoAmerica Fri. AM, got any tickets or coupons?
Ed's reply, "what's that?"  :facepalm:

Guess that's why MC Road Racing in the USA is in the state it is.  :shrug:

Thanks.

Great weekend of racing and riding. Just under 900mi., all on some of PA's finest roads.  :thumbsup:
IMO - Pennsylvania has some of the best mc roads in the NE., and the miles of new pavement I rode was impressive.

Weather was perfect, MotoAmerica is trying it's best.
Average age of the people in my seating section, about 60yrs..
It was nice seeing all the ST.Org members who attended.

Just saying...

Wait a minute, I'll spend a few hours recapping all the roads I rode and list them for you.
I did a 900mi. loop, all in PA..
The gas money rebuilt quite a few roads in my area, the increase in the gas tax and registration fees etc. is helping the rest of the state.

 I guess we don't ride the same roads.

You should have PM'ed me I would have bought you a beer, I live not a half hour from there, went riding instead of races, but could have took time to meet with you after.

Sounds like you had a great ride, sam.

Found a few of those fresh pavement roads yesterday.

Sam, the crowd looked pretty good on TV.  Both of the 1000cc races were excellent to watch. 

I'm glad you attended and had a good time!

Found the races last night on Youtube (it's not easy). Looks like a pretty cool track. Race 1 was awesome. Race 2 was fun too, though that Hayden Gillim crash was horrifying. Glad to read that he's okay.

Thanks guys, and ya it was a fun day and a great race. (Sat.) The weather both days was perfect.

The crowd was OK, and it's a good thing it wasn't much bigger.
Only four job johnny's and two food venders on Saturday, hope they brought a couple more in for Sundays race.

I hope the event returns, The race action was great, viewing area good, and a big screen for parts of track out of view.

Like I said before, "MotoAmerica is trying it's best". I hope they continue to grow. :thumbsup:
