It was great having VIP status...  use of a tent to keep dry and some BBQ to feed the hungry race fans.

 


Between events we roamed through the paddock taking in the race atmosphere as teams prepared for motorcycle racing.

 Alright! A Buell in the paddock. Ride on...

Pete Donegan of Calgary, racing his #70 Buell did well in the race later that day. Too bad some of us missed it. Had to head West before the day got old and too rained out.

It was great seeing a Buell in the paddock!
