Holy cow, it's a track day and it's at CMP! It doesn't get any better than that!

Now you might be wondering, "but did they rent a garage?".

One weekend last year we waited until the last minute to rent a garage and when we went to grab one they were sold out. So we were forced to set up camp out in the sand with the little people. And let me tell you about the ants. Ants ants ants ants ants ants ants. They attacked with ferocity and carried off my car to be eaten later.

So this year, the day the tickets went on sale way back in January, we bought garage tickets for every weekend in 2022. Because ants.

Hoping to see more people on SV650s and MT-09s ... and maybe fewer people on nuclear-powered R1s. :)

Are you offering spots in the garage? Is the weather supposed to be 80, no rain and low humidity? I haven’t bought yet but leaning that way.

Well now I feel like an idiot. Which is nothing new to be honest. I posted that ^^^ because yeah I thought we had room in the garage but I just remembered we are already splitting it.

If there are garage tickets available you should grab one because they will sell out. And you won't have any problem finding someone to split it with if you want - we aren't the only ones that don't like ants!

edit - and we can ask John to put our garages next to each other.

Last chance to have me in your garage space if anything has changed?

Are you getting ready to book a garage? If you can hold off until this afternoon I'll check. Even though we only have three bikes in the garage I think we have three tables, four chairs, and four people. A fourth bike might be too much, but Alan has more experience at this sort of thing than I do so I'd like to ask him first and see what he says.

If you book your own I can ask a few people if they're planning to attend and interested in splitting a garage. They're good people you wouldn't mind garaging with. Also, we can ask John for side-by-side or back-to-back garages.

That’s cool. I had another offer to split a garage a week ago and I am not positive that still stands. If I can’t split with you I’ll see if that’s available still and if not ask around or post on the PRE website.

Alan said we should have plenty of room for you, so we've got room if you want to join us! That would be great!

Alright Matt, I'll be bringing a signed, first edition copy Saturday. Note that this book contains only new, never before seen Motorcycle Haikus and not anything that was recycled from a certain track day organization's forums.

Hahahah! That is fucking hilarious! I really like the second ant haiku though.

“Ants ants ants ants ants
Should have rented a garage
The ants ate my gloves”

I can’t tell you how many times Tracy asks me what are you snickering about?
Only answer is some nonsense motorcycle shit! Haha!

Are suzi and yosh not haiku writers too?
