I wanted to go to Freddy's school there (Miller). But his school went belly up I guess Too bad we can't get MotoGP to stop there(a proper reacetrack) instead of Indy.

GTU sounds interesting. I could stuff a 550cc snowmobile engine into a R6 frame and rule!

How big was that TULARIS?

I would love to go to freddies in vegas, only the $2200 tab keeps me back. Flights are dirt cheap and lodging in vegas almost a steal now. Jet blue was offering $14 flights to NYC yesterday, yes a $10 and 4 $1's. Think there were some flights to la for that price too.
