    Track Day @ the Rally

    All: Since the news is buried on page 3 of the old track thread we're starting a new one here.

    Information on the track day and a special "laps and lunch" session is now posted here: http://bmwmoa.org/rally/rally05/trackday.htm

    Hey!

    I haven't got my copy of BMW ON yet.

    What should I do... cover my eyes?

    conflicted in Atlanta.

    And... oh yeah... way to kick ass and take names, Lorazepam. This is sweet!

    Some shots from the Trenton Track Day

    Steve -- feel free to use these on the rally site if you'd like.







    Can't wait for this year's event!

    It would be good to put a correction of the phone # into the announcement or a "sticky" here on the forum so people have the right number.

    I just called Monte at 888-390-4020 ( correct #).
    He said to use the website to signup and call if you have questions.

    I just signed up for my first track days at Talladaga GP. Very easy to do on their website.I plan to signup for the Laps and Lunch.

    They will have a registration on their site for the "Laps and Lunch" soon, he said

    Thanks to all for getting this set up.

    The phone # has been corrected on the web page.
    One other item, they'll be providing a registration link. They're working on it as we type...

    This is one of those times I wish I wasn't a vendor!!

    All summer I get the "Gee, I wish I had YOUR job!" comments... you envious folks! But there are one or 2 times a year that I HATE being a vendor and having to work! I'd be signed up for this in a flash if I could!

    Sue, I think your goal was to haveso many things to do at the National that people wouldn't mind not having Rocky Mtns Roads to ride during the day. Well, dammit!, You've done it now!!

    The Track at Mid-Ohio is fantastic... I've watched some great races there over the years!!

    Wouldn't somebody want to be Queen for a Day or at least Bag Lady for a Day and let me go ride the track???

    I feel the same, Helen. This will be the first national that I will wish I wasn't tied up at the Beer Garden. Would love to do a track day.

    OK, Sue, now how do we get people to volunteer or will the committee chairs and vendors be the only ones left at the rally???

    tb who can't do a track day.

    Tom,

    I know it is just a *bit* out of the way but the Yankee Beemers are hosting a track day in May.

    See www.yankeebeemers.org for more.

    I look forward to my shift at your service with my fellow board members.

    Last year that was one of the best evenings of my rally. The highlight was when they decided to "cool me off" with the bucket of ice water.

    I am surprised a photo never surfaced.

    Best,

    Rob Nye

    Nice offer, Rob, but its one weekend too early for me. Final exams on the 2nd of May and an adult ed session on the weekend of your track day. After that I am free for most of the summer.

    I'll try to have my camera ready this year for both the Board and the Forum.

    All: There's now a link on the track day page to the MOA schedule and online registration. The direct link is: https://www.sportbiketracktime.com/c...Cbr%3E%2BDATES

    Back Protectors

    I noticed on the STT web site that intermediate and advanced groups are required to wear back protectors (the padding inside a riding jacket doesn't count). There was no mention of this in the BMWMOA information. Does that mean we're considered novices and can get away without one? It may not matter since I've been thinking about buying one anyway, but I'd like to know what the official policy will be. Does anyone know for sure?

    Please contact Monte Lutz for this inquiry... His contact information is on the Rally Page.

    STT Membership??

    I'm so confused....
    Anyway, it's asking for membership numbers and such for the "Laps and Lunch"...
    Is there a way to sign up for this without going through all the motions that are needed with the full track day registration??

    Also, the guy on the R90S was in my group at Trenton's track day.. Very cool photo...
