4th Team, is it possible

Could the LocalRiders.com pit team handle a 4th bike in the pits?

Trying real hard to get a race bike end on July. The deal has been struck, if I sell the two old Honda's "I can buy a race bike"

So over the next two weekends I'm putting that bike together to sell it. If you want them let me know.

I've been seeing alot of GSXR 600's and F3 for sale on E-Bay for right around 2 grand, ready to race with spares. The good part is most of them are around Detroit and Grattan. So a relatively short drive.

Lightbulb Can't speak for everyone

Sounds like a good idea to me. The way I see it, with you _and_ JetWrench there we'll be able to save enough time before the race in safetywire time alone that we'll find some way to work out the pit stops!

I know that the pits are already kinda busy but i'm willing to give it a go. Sounds like there may be 5 if Team Squid runs 3 ppl, 2 bikes.

What's everyone else think?

I'll start working on the :bathroom: break schedule.

Its doable for sure

We may have to bring 2 bikes in at the same time and pit them side by side.. We should have enough hands most of the time...

I am all for it!!

Bring it kid. Actually do you have a teammate yet? If you got some track skills Team Squid may be willing to chat with you. Let me know.

Also, if you are looking for a used race bike really consider the sv 650. Lots running around for sale and they are suppossed to be awesome to throw around the track for cheap.

AS FOR THE PITS.

More of localriders members are going to have to show up and give us some love in the pits. Can you guys do it?

No doubt about it... Davey and Corey (CORKY) could easliy be drafted but I know thier missing the next race at end of June for a trip to NY then they should be back on track......

We will get you some help Pam... I don't know how hard it is to score 3 teams so while were at it maybe we should try to ease your load and try to keep you at 2 teams to score but you'll have to keep us posted... Don't want to take too much for granted...

Scoring 3 teams for 3 hours isn't much of a problem. The view is pretty good from Nelson Ledges' tower, and it helps if the colors on the bikes aren't similar to other teams!

That first race I picked up a 3rd team and it wasn't too difficult.

Let me know where you've been seeing the SV 4 sale. I'm not looking to spend a ton, All of the used race bikes I looked at are fully prep'ed with spare for approx. 2 grand.
It would more than likely be me iron butt'ing for right now, Not for sure when my future team mate will be able to start doing it?

As far as the TSR thing, You better talk to Rob, after all the Kawi trash I talk he prob won't let me near that thing. But my Honda leathers would prob make it go faster.

Thanks for all the input guys/gals, Keep your fingers crossed and hopefully it will all come together in July.

Baker can have a good teammate if he would just buy me leathers, boots, race school, and oh yeah, pay for my divorce!
