So I thought I'd ask - what kind of things have you seen at other motorcycle rallys/events that you would like to see at future NASSIR events?

We've all heard/done/seen things like "slow rides" "burn out pits" and "dyno testing" - what else?
Let's hear your ideas!!!!


In case you weren't sure what any of my examples were here are some links to help you out.

Dyno -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuq7Brj9SbA
Slow Ride -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95nosCHWI2c
Burn Out -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1U9k...eature=related


by the way - you will NOT get me to enter a burn out contest - to many videos of burn outs gone bad.

got a couple ideas. Involves 6-8 perferably 8 construction cones and the same amount of tennis balls,couple of stop watches. Timed events
1.- set up 4 to 8 cones so far apart with tennis balls on top of the cones. driver and passenger go through the cones like a sholom course while passenger trys to pick the tennis ball off the top of the cone, the couple that has the best time and the most balls win. in the case of a tie--bring the cones closer together.
2.- timed also, set up all 8 cones, 2side by side in a staggard pattern, wide enough for a wing to go through.put tennis balls on top all the cones, have the rider go through the course as fast as he can without knocking any of the balls off.

That was my recipe last year at the campground. Seemed to work out okay.

It sure did work well! It is a formula hard to beat. Not sure I can make it for Nassir 5, but I am trying. I am working on the details (read $) on this trip. Got laid off and need to make the resources stretch even further. If I am able to swing it I will have stops in Spearfish S.D., Omaha NE, Lanagan MO to visit friends, the rest of the trip will be camping along the way. Need to travel frugally for this large of a trip. Guess I need to read all of Dusty's traveling threads

Let me know if you come through the Topeka (or NE) Kansas area. I'd be thrilled to catch up with you.
