As James said they usually open at 6:30am. The riders meeting is normally held around 7:45am and the first group goes out to the track around 8:15am

Re: How are you getting to the track?

javier called a place that would let us take it on saturday (closed sunday) and let us return it tuesday morning at 7:30am and only charge us for two days. $23 a day but its only a two bike trailer.

ill be calling uhaul tomorrow to ask about the big trailers and if you guys can pitch in for the trailer, the bigger one we can get for more bikes. we're taking an 04 expedition, FYI.

i hope syd gets that trailer. supposed to be 8x10 i think.

Re: How are you getting to the track?

I bought a trailer about a yr ago but its just for a single bike.* I go it from Home Depot believe or not and I only paid $350, and bought th wheel lock and attached it to the trailer.* works great! I can fit all my stands, tires, cooler, and other stuff on the side.

sorry I didnt post the link to them! I dunno what I was thinking.* The trailer is this one..*

http://snowbear.com/html/7500.html

This is a little different than the one Home Depot carries but I think the one they have there is the 9000 model. I bought it and went to home depot and purchased the wheel stop and installed it on there and it works great. If I have any pics of mine I will post them later...

As of last time I checked H.D. did carry these.* I havent been back in about a month but I dunno why they wouldnt have them. I paid $350 and it has done the job in my opinion.*

Re: How are you getting to the track?

Ok im home now and I managed to find a few pics of my snowbear trailer I was talkin about...
The pics are really of the bike but the trailer is shown a little here.* These were the only 2 I found that had some portion of the trailer showing so im showing u all what the trailer is like...* Ignore that fool in the back he was in the way when I snapped the pics. Also keep in mind that you can SCROLL the pic over and see a little more of the trailer.
