The days with quirky weather at BUB and any other meet cause some scheduling problems.  The streamliners race in the calm portions of the day and everyone scheduled for the long course waits for them to run.  Also, FIM record return runs and AMA record return runs must be completed by a specified time period.  They get priority.  Often this appears to be preferential treatment to some riders, but it is not.  It is part of the land speed racing game.  We always have been treated well at BUB.

Larry,
Are you sure it was 08 you had problems with? Pretty sure it was 2007 that was so bad.  In 2008 you were building a new motor.

You're right Dan, it was '07. CRS is acting up again... Gonna send in my entry later today.

Bob, I usually don't have a problem questioning authority but, they usually have a problem with me after I'm done. Let's just say, the guy with the list in '07 had no intention of coming by for a beer after the days runs...

Looking forward to seeing all of you on the salt this year.

2007 almost made us never come back to Bubs again as well so don't feel alone.  Luckily for Buibs Delvene got the message loud and clear and has made great changes to the way the lines run. The only priority given to anybody was the streamliners but that is to be expected.

Agrassfidf - Come on out - The BUB event is big time fun. An outrageous assortment of bikes that you can only dream about, great friendly people, most willing to help you out if you need it, and some of the most dedicated friendly Volunteers you could ever meet - all in one place !
Agrassfidf - I am still trying to figure out how to pronounce your name or what the acronym means, but this will be the Gray Ghost's fifth year going to BUB, its something we look forward to all year, so if you make it out, stop by the Gray Ghost pit and have a cold H2o and a snack.   cheers

There is certainly one area that ALL the competitors have in common at the Annual BUB Speed Trials,
and that is their definite love of being around racing motorcycles.
Hey, that reminds me.......

See ya on the Salt, and hopefully in impound!! smiley cheesy grin

You got that right Bob - we are in a count down mode also. Its a result of the dedication and long days of work that the BUB Volunteers provide, that make the BUB event better and better every year. Hats off to you all.  cheers
Looking forward -
