1. Pack jeans, The ride to the track in the a.m. can be mighty chilly  Roll Eyes
2. Don't stay downtown, while fun and convienent. They stick it to ya hard on parking  Cry
3. Take a GPS, ending up on the south side of Indy after leaving the track is a little stressfull
4. Just because the red bull is free, does not mean you have to drink it!

1. Take rain gear to track, no matter how good it looks in the morning Roll Eyes
2. The newest-released-Ducati, with some carbon bolted on, WILL win the best of show award, regardless
3. Whatever it is, BS will forget it
4. Mother's got no game
5. Charge the damn camera batteries, no matter what the meter says
6. Don't let the missus ride a new Monster 696
7. Get to the flat track races EARLY... everyone who went said it was awesome
8. No matter where he goes, Jared knows somebody
9. Indy locals rock: Patrick, Liz, Drew, Stacy, Indy Ducati Wrecking Crew, etc.

1. Don't ride a Multistrada
2. Keep track of your shit (I "lost" my keys in my jacket, "lost" my gear claim ticket in my jeans pocket, and "lost" my jacket on a chair)
3. Get fuel before the red snake ride - even if you don't run out, seeing the fuel light come on will make you sweat a bit
4. If you don't know where you're going, don't just ride for 2 hours going the wrong direction

1. 14 lbs of pulled pork will feed more than you think
2. Patrick is the dog whisperer
3. If you want to own something just take a dump on it
4. When the guy at the ticket window says the flat track race ends in 45 minutes don't believe him.
I'm not 20 years old anymore. I Passed out 3 times from being too tired...
5. Getting Mario to wake up is almost as hard as getting him to go to bed
6. Stacy learned Cheering for the opposition (Rossi) is OK when he takes the lead over someone you really don't (Pedro)
7. Inviting hooligans into your house is inviting sleep deprivation into your life. But like a junkie I would do it again.

1. Don't offer waitresses someone else's pizza as a "first date."
2. Don't let Jared handle your gas pump  (Sorry Jared)
3. Forgetting your license on your bike = getting sleep. Sorry I didn't join you guys at Chumleys.
4. Try not to forget your SD card for your Hero 3 Helmet cam. Walgreens is expensive.
5. Reading posts from Horse will liven any party. Same goes for Shitmydadsays.
6. IMS crew will try tearing down tents with you under them, regardless if you're ready to leave or not.
7. The speedlimit for the IMS group lap is 30mph. It was not obeyed. A hyper and I hit 100mph on the straight-a-way.
8. If you're tricky, you can take multiple laps. 
9. Do you know how I own Mario? Just ask.

1. Make sure your License plate is attached
2. When looking for your missing wife, be sure to check the track , she may be doing laps on her bike (duh)
3. When Kevin S asks for your phone number it means you are Volunteering for a turn in the booth ( I would have done it any way)
4. Mario is a "man whore" and will get his picture taken with a racer every year! Roll Eyes
5. My bike does not have a parade gear the Red Snake ride should go FASTER  Grin

1. If you shit on something and/or somewhere, and you are the only one YOU OWN it!!

2. Not a good year for the multi riders.

3. If you DESIGN and BUILD all the parts yourself for your bike, your bike still is not good enough to beat a bike that has every bought and bolted on piece of Carbon Fiber in existence, even if it did have the carbon/ceramic rotors (drool).

4. Barking at girls who walk by Chumleys on broadripple does not get you a date, or even start a conversation for that matter.

5. Not going to the track on friday meant I stayed nice and dry while those of you who did go well um didn't...

6. Things are not good when you get back to Patricks and the drunk lady is asking "What's going on over here?" and "I think it's great that you are soooooo passionate about this stuff, I have never been passionate about anything!"  and then continues to say the same damn things over and over for the rest of the night... thanks Jared and Patrick for throwing me to WOLF!!!

7. NO MORE BANANA RUNTS, DAMN IT!!!

8. Red snake ride not worth the loss of sleep.

9. Posts on shitmydadsays and Horses post are worth a night full of fun.

10. So there's still a chance!!

Some of these are self explanatory others you had to be there for it to make sense...
