My ever suffering ZX12 & I am planning on making 2010 BUB our 1st foray onto the salt.

Q:  is the hotel situation as tight as I hear it is for Speedweek?  Any tips?

sorry to be such a noob, but I hear that white stuff calling  cheers

nowhere near as bad as speedweek. Shop around for best prices but they are usually under $80 a night

come on man.....do it right....

bring a sleeping bag, you can sleep for free at the bend in
the road.....rough it a day or two...then you can get
rooms easily a day or so into it...

for some reason....bub 2009 had virtually no bikers camping
at the bend......whats the deal with that...?...

I had a medical emergency on Tues. of Speed Week and had to go home.   If that hadn't have come up I would of been there thru all the meets.  In my opinion the Bend in the road is fine, if you prepare ahead of time for intermitent crappy weather! The food at the Salt Flat Cafe is good and the people that stay at the Bend in the road are the finest of peoples!   See you there next year!!!    Crow.

I have done a couple of nights at the bend in the road during BUB but with rooms being as little as $45 on a week night it is hard not to take advantage of it. Friday and Saturday tend to be much higher. This year during Speedweek I camped at the bend and it is a completely different experience (thanks Willie, Old Crow and others for the great hospitality!).

My experience for BUB is the Nugget for $45 and the EconoLodge $35. Makes it worth a hot shower at the end of the day.

Entropy, after a good nights sleep to think on this I have a clearer picture of the issue of overnighting. My first trip to BUB I arrived in the late evening and slept in the cab of the truck at the bend in the road. Meeting the other folks camping there made for the perfect introduction to the Salt Flats. Regardless of room availability always be ready to camp and you will meet some great racers to enjoy a camp fire with.

Crow and others:

In the back of the Truck stop salt flats cafe are showers you can take from what I remember (afterall it is a truck stop), I think the cost is only a few dollars and I think they provide the towels?

 shocked  Your right John!  Completly forgot about that......7 dollars and they do give you BIG towels, wash cloth and the condition of the shower's are excelent!     Don't forget the large glass of Apple cider, ice cold either!         Crow.

Hey I stayed at the Bend, during Speedweek and BuB..

 Ya mustsa seen the ugly, old, overloaded, 750 Honda Four when I was there..

 Altho I just threw my jacket down, and sleeping bag on top of that.. so when I left, looked like no one had been there.

 Get up with the sun, eat brekkie at the Salt Flats cafe.. great food.. breakfast is cheaper than the showers .. shocked

 crow, was wondering why I never saw ya at Speedweek..

It's a military term for use to describe a New Guy. I believe  wink there is a pejorative the begins the phrase that would be squashed by the adult filter installed here on the board. But if you use a little imagination, I think you'll be able to figure it out...
