practice at katy this weekend 6-30/7-1?

anybody gonna go out and get some practice time in this weekend?
I need to get some run time on the bike. I put the 115 kit and a new carb on it and need to get some run time on it before the denton races...
the wife does not want me out there by myself and it looks like she will be busy and not able to go out with me...
if anyone is going out, let me know what time and which day....I am not going to push it, just get some3/4 or less throttle run time to get it broke in.

I still need to get a membership. Which requires me to stop spending money on the mini first.

i doubt you will ever completely stop spending money on the mini, or any other bike for that matter....
but you can go as a guest, though you are technically supposed to ride the bike that belongs to the member, and you do have to sign a release....neither is a big deal.

Oh, I know I won't completely stop spending money, but its still not where it needs to be for me to even call it "good enough." Hopefully with this last round of parts the suspension will be sorted well enough that I can ride it...even if it'll still be down on power.

I can meet you out there Saturday or Sunday. I'm planning on taking New Rider out sometime to let him test ride the KX65. You can add some peer pressure to make sure he buys it.

lets do it as early in the morning as we can get everyone together... oh, wait.. it is supposed to be back down in the 90's for the weekend...
just pick a day and time... since it is for Ivan to check out the bike, we will work with his schedule....and since I don't need to go fast, we can let him move out ahead of us and maybe let him lap us a time or two...nah, even Ivan would not believe it....that KX would be a of a first TMGP bike.

and it may be sunday, i thought Ivan was going to do WHoops trackday at MSRH saturday...
anyway, either day is fine with me.

I'm still planning on being there at 8:00 on Sunday if it's not raining. Any of the members will be able to unlock the gate. You won't need cash to ride there as a guest Ivan, but you will need cash to take the KX65 home with you
