Here within this forum, we have something that no one in the world has..... a person (Eric) who has a race team at the IOM TT... and is sending reports with pictures in near real time (each night)!!!!
All the time he is showing logos all over the place, On the bike, t-shirts, polo shirts, etc........ even for wheelie shots under the belly pan.

I am really depressed that we could not have raised a bit more cash for Eric so Dave could ride on a total paint scheme, this would have been very cool.

So if we figure that this year is shot (I do not know exactly how much cash be donated, it's got to be under $1500 USD), we should start collecting cash now for Eric's team for the 2004 IOM TT,

At the same time I thing we should contribute cash into a fund... for air tickets for a person (raffle it off if you wish) to get to go over to the TT and spend time in the pits with Eric.

We are talking about the cost of a beer or two, each month (must be 1000 people that would give $10/month around here).......Don't tell me that people around here can't afford that...

This race is big, the exposure that got from it is huge.......... we need t step up a bit and provide Eric with some real support for 2004.

We all get something from the site in one way or another, I think it's time to start giving back to the motorcycle community, what better way than to support Eric.

I don't care about the raffle, or whatever. I can add some cash maybe not a 100, more like 50 or so. I am pretty poor as I went back to get a degree 3 1/2 ago, got 2 more left.

Anyway figure out whats up and I will help a little. Its a awesome race and takes big balls.

I don't know if you want to commit yourself to a raffle and all seems like a pain. Be better of just trying hooking up some lodging for a few wanting to come over.

What might be interesting is to film some video from next years race and then find someone computer saavy to burn the vid on vcd and give those that donate a certain amount, a copy. Although I don't know if the race sponsors allow that kind of thing. I went to the site an the video is so cool it raises my blood pressure to see the bikes go thru the streets at that speed.
