When signing up, choose your email address wisely. You will receive multiple critical emails to that address in the weeks and days (maybe hours) leading up to the event!
If you are new to this style of event and have not spoken with some people to gain some insight, it is strongly suggested that you do so BEFORE you sign up. Not that it is incredible difficult but because the learning curve can be steep if you walk in clueless. Just out to site-see? You’re good to go. Want to be competitive? Talk to some people.
Remember, it’s just a motorcycle ride. Don’t forget to enjoy it!
