Castle Rocks about exit 49 if I remember right. From there up St. Helens and backdown is a little over 100 miles. So whatever the mile marker is at the border minus 49 would be your distance down here. Some of us will meet and leave from the Tacoma area and that's about mm138.

I'm thinking by 2015 Ducati should be ready to release the PANISTRADA RR - hard saddle bags. Knee down on the track and packing a tuxedo for dinner with the umbrella girl.

PANISTRADA coming soon to a dealer near you!

Something shorter may work better on 9 June, I think we have to get on the road later that evening so I can't be out too late. Ill be there on 2 June so if any of you want to ride any of those days from 2-9 June let me know.

Lets make this a little more interesting. Whomever rides the most miles to our meeting place in castle rock gets a FREE STARBUCKS drink of their choice. I'll buy. This comes down to Kevin vs. Frosty so far and Kevin's about 12 miles or so further. So gentlemen be honest and zero a tripmeter before you leave home and take whatever route you want to and add on any miles.
I know how tempting it is for you Pani riders to cheat for a free Starbucks drink.
And John we all know you live in Tacoma so stop that Ferris Beuller thing and take that Pani out off gear and off the stand. No putting on miles that way.
Thanks from gnance

Next weekends supposed to be nice. If it is ill be headed to the Ridge to watch the WMRRA races and do TOR on sunday. If the weather sucks ill still head down sunday and cornerwork.

For those that don't know what TOR is its " Taste of Racing ". You pay $8 entry to watch the races and $20 to do TOR. That gives you 20 minutes to play on the track during the lunch break. No need to prep the bike.

If you volunteer cornerwork, you get free entry to the races ( just tell them at the gate that your cornerworking and they'll tell you where to go ), free lunch, and as I understand it a free pass for a TOR session.

Just something fun before our ride.

That would be great. You could tow me around that track. I have no idea which way it goes. Your track day there puts you way ahead off me.
