Land rush at Laguna - Wed afternoon

Discussion in 'Motorcycle Talk' started by beansbaxter, Jul 7, 2005.

  1. As of 4:30pm Wednesday, who's in line at Laguna? EVERYONE!. Nobody is allowed in (Reserved or non-reserved sites) to get to their campsites until tomorrow when they open the gates at 6am. There are at least 300+ cars in front streaching to the SCRAMP office at the front straight (~a mile.)

    I'd called last Friday and confirmed that camping is/would be permitted but the sites were controlled by the Monterey County folks for non-race weekdays and weekends. Guess the, um, -anitcipated- crowd is changing their plans already...

  5. On my way down there, the bearings in my rear axle gave away. A $40 prevention that never happened on the bearings there resulted in over $1500 in a broke-down motorcycle. Need new swingarm, chain, sprockets, hub assemblies, rear axle, and all the guts/bearings/seals of the inner wheel. Sold my paddock pass for $500 to someone else going up there. He got a steal on it...word is the paddocks are going to be worth $700-$800 on Friday evening.
     
  6. Damn :pale: :crybaby: :cussing: Sorry to hear.
