Announcing the LAB20 Reunion for next year, April 2019's MotoGP race weekend in Austin, TX.
Next year will be the 20th anniversary of ducmanic & GoBig's big idea that produced labusas.oRg.
Over the last twenty years we've had our ups and downs. Some members have drifted apart.
Some have stuck around. Most of us have come a long way in 20 years.
Many now have adult children. Some are even Grandparents now.

Some of you don't even own a Hayabusa or other motorcycle anymore (many of you, actually).
It's cool. We still want you to come.

Realizing we are all a little older, slightly wiser and not quite the party animals we once were...
I'm thinking our 20th anniversary should be more family oriented.
So members can make a family holiday out of the weekend.
Introduce their wives/husbands/children to each other and to the intense motorcycle action of MotoGP.

Austin, TX is a great town to bring your family to for the weekend.
There are many exciting things to do, whether you're here as a family or if you're on your own and want to just have crazy fun.
The next three posts in this thread will contain various info.
The thread will continually be updated as we as a group, gather ideas and start making plans.

Some of you will arrive by plane and then rent a car.
Some of you will organize motorcycle rides and pick up labs members on your way across the states (cough tinhead).
Some of you will come broke and need help getting around or looking for a sofa to crash on.
We've got you covered. Just get your butt here, okay. We'll figure things out.

I'd like to collect ideas on how to proceed with this event.
Then after a week or two, we'll start contacting EVERY SINGLE former/missing labusas.oRg member and invite them to join our reunion!
Anyone who has ever past/present been a part of the board or shown up for local rides/parties.
Friends of friends we've never met are welcome too.
If all goes well, I'm hoping we'll have 100+ members & family show up!

PLACES TO STAY IN AUSTIN, TX
=============================================
=============================================


Do we want to just let people find their own places to stay?
Hotels tend to book up pretty quickly in advance of the GP.
As soon as MotoGP releases its schedule, we'll want to make hotel reservations ASAP.
It would be nice if we could all agree on the same hotel or a couple hotels near each other.


Ideally we would all stay somewhere in between the racetrack and downtown Austin.
Probably closer to downtown than the track?

Rent a 36 room house?

Nearby camping?

Hey, you didn't by chance happen to save two spots? Because this thread is crashing towards a free post.

A marriage, a party or the inside line on the new Hayabusa...
Next silly announcement will be an automatic transmission or some other abomination!

That's what happens when you let just anyone use your board.
They bring it back all fucked up and now it's up to you to fix it.

…was it a regular board or one of those long boards?

in other words... No ANNOUNCEMENT...


- EVER :p
My Chromebook, 12 something Internet connection, wifi, and I haven't noticed a thing while the Board Overlords rack up the Bitcoins. It doesn't run hot, the battery doesn't drain fast, even the board Jew seems intact.

Is there an over/under that things will be "fixed" before MotoGP Austin?
