Just registered a couple bikes, trying to decide between 2 for the rider/survivor class.  Is that class basically no rules and/or totally open?

My plan here is to see some Old School Riders.  The bikes we are not afraid to get dirty and ride them like they were meant to be.  Carpet queens are best for the other classes.  Lets have fun with this one!

Would having new tires be grounds for disqualification?  My '87 is a hodgepodge of old/mid/new so I'm not sure if it's technically "legal".  I could always just ride it around the pits too lol

Alrighty sounds good, the 87 Freeform is coming with me then, even though it has the wrong wheels on it.  I might not even clean the dirt off tongue

Re: ROCKFORD 2017 - The Show Must Go On! And It Will Go On!

NOW HEAR THIS!!!!!!!!

if you show up on Friday and see a bunch of cars n our area, DONT FRET! Don't get pissed and get in your car and turn around, or anything silly like that.
I spoke to Jake today and he said that if we're not going to use it on Friday for parking, and since we don't have anything official for the day, and we are guests in his house I told him whatever he wants to do. To which he assured me that the spot will be cleared Friday night, and sectioned off for us the same night or early Saturday morning before we get there.
