I'm putting together a nice ride up to Madison for Sat. Lets meet at the DQ at Highlander Point. Time will follow.
Racer says buying your tickets early cost $5 more than at the door price, but you get $10 in food tickets.

Hope it don't [email protected]#n this year.

We got lots of room for campers, but the facilities are primitive. Hopefully by next summer we will have the shower and restroom ready.

Its so funny hearing you guys talk about how nice Madison is. I guess Im just use to it..........

Anyway, Let me know when you guys plan on being here, I can save you some parking spots, it gets really crowded down here when events like this are going on. Im only 2 blocks from the action so you wont have to walk so far

Im gonna save as many spots as I can, its a public street so there are plenty, I just have to find stuff to put out there so others dont park here. Im sure I could save spots for 10 to 12 pretty easily. PM me and I'll get you the directions

I waiting to see a weather report for this weekend. This event takes place outdoord (duhhhh) , so if it's going to be very hot (90's) we'll wait to ride up till evening. We'll meet at the waffle steak in New albany, and procede to Madison from there. Matt will lead us up some beautiful back roads.I'm guessing we'll meet at the latest 5:00 P M. Parking has been offered by a rider in Madison, so lets get ready.

Offical departure time by friday afternoon at the latest.

O K, Looks like the temp might give us a break. So lets meet at waffle steak in New Albany at 5:00 saturday afternoon. We'll have a nice easy ride thru the country to Madison and park in a "saved" area, walk a block or two to the get together. Don't forget to carry some kinda lil folding chair . We'll sit on the big lawn and hear some really great blues..................see ya!

Hey guys, I forgot they moved the ribberfest a couple of years ago when they expanded the parking lot down by the ball field. Soooo, I'm actually 3 blocks away, not 2. Tonight you may find parking a little closer but I'll save you some spots just in case. And I'll leave you some spots out here tomorrow too.

I went Saturday morning. Had a lot of fun. Got TONS of free food as the pros got their dishes ready for judging and had a lot of food left over. Bought a crap ton of bbq sauce (thank god for saddlebags).

Parked out in front of your house Cadeyz.. thanks man.

PS. Did you sell your 1300 and get an 1800?

That was it. Thanks for the props. That paint job was only $950 by Bob Taylor of Taylor's House of Color in Louisville. Kind of wish I had done a red theme (U of L) instead of orange but oh well, my bike will be sitting next to a $21,000 harley and when people walk by they don't even see the harley. Infuriates my father ;)

Thanks again for letting us park there. Your door was open when we were leaving so I was gunna knock but didn't want to intrude. We'll definately be there next year as well, all had a great time.

950?!?!?!?!?!?! Thats a great deal!! I may have to look him up, Im not exactly pleased with my paint, want something black and like a graphite color, not sure what though. Did he paint your whole bike or just lay the graohics over the stock paint?
