Anyone interested in going to Calgary June 17-19 for a round of the Canadian Superbike?

I'm also thinking of riding to Sears Point in May(?) for AMA and possibly (depends on $$) Laguna in July.

I'm assuming you mean leave Calgary on Sunday. Not a problem as I was thinking 2 days there, 2 days back or even quicker.

Camp or Motel? Makes no difference to me.

I think Human was going to ride up for it. There's a thread on Events I believe. I'd like to go, but I'll be picking and choosing my rides for time and financial constraints. I'm hoping I can get down to Laguna Seca for the SBK round down there in July.

I'm thinking that it would be fun. Stop of in Nelson/Rosland (sp?) and ride for a day then to Calgary. The Kootneys have amazing roads from what my cousin tells me. If I can book it off, I will if it can be firmed up.

A group from the Groundpilots in Calgary are looking to come out this way for Sportbike West in August. If the Canadian Sportbike thing doesn't happen, I may go to the Kootneys in Aug and hookup with them on the way back.

OH YES ! OH YES ! YES ! YES ! YES ! <~~inspired by the "Clairol" lady....Well ya I will definitely come out with you folks,
my interesssion is in May and so by mid June I should be free as by July I am going back for my 2nd intersession.

I would like to leace on Sunday....but we will see as time gets closer....so it's 3-4 riders so far....I most likely will be able to get cheap rooms in Calgary and wil see if we need something on the way....cheap as in $35 for $159 room...:D:D:D:D:D:D...and if it's just 4 guys then we might only need one room...
