Mid-Ohio 2008
Warning: Dial-up is not recommended..go broadband!

It was a last minute decision so I didn't get a chance to make a big announcement about this trip to our members. As a result, our member's attendance is low. We also missed RB this year. On the bright side, the weather was fantastic for this time of year and we had tons of visitors and recruited 9 new members to the club. The XTR brought so much attention and it had to be the most photographed bike at Mid-Ohio. The common questions were: "So, what is it?", "How many horsepower?" and "How fast is it?".   We don't really know the answers 'til we dial it in and take it to the track in 2009.  We spent most of the time talking to visitors and met all kinds of characters.
