Austin GP

Hey gang, I am thinking about making a little trek out to Austin for the GP. Anyone have any advice on where to try and get a hotel for the weekend?

Also: anyone else going?

I stayed in downtown Austin right off 6th St last year and there were a ton of people there for days on either side of the race. It was definitely pretty cool walking the streets and going to parties hosted by MotoMummy and moto companies, filled with people talking about the race. It's under an hour outside of the track, so not toooo bad, but not right there either

if I were you, I'd book the double tree downtown. There are 2 of them and one is right next to I-35. If I'm not staying with friends, these are the 2 places I usually book. Right by the highway so I can get home quicker and walking distance to 6th street.

If I say that I am going, does this mean we get to share a hotel room?

I'll be there, not sure what days yet. I might just ride up for the races on Sunday.

Have they released the MotoAmerica schedule for that weekend yet? I want to make sure I'm there to support them as well.

Would love to do a block of rooms somewhere and hang out with other members. Any other interests?

Well it might be unlikely to get a few rooms. But I am going to do some cost checking and see what I can come up with.

As is there may be a few of us flying in from various parts of the country.
