This will be an "experienced" level ride, in occasionally ugly, rocky technical terrain with multiple water crossings at a brisk pace. My truck can carry three bikes. If somebody has a trailer, I could take five bikes and riders...

Sweet: I have a go from Chuck and a strong maybe from Mike B. Anybody else?
Welcome Garrett...

The ride above is still on...So far, Chuck is in and a very strong maybe from Mike B. Three bikes is fine but I just wanted to be sure that everyone knows that they are welcome to come along, ride with us, ride your own ride, etc... The leaves shouls be nice at higher elevations!

Drag it out to the RTE (Ride To Eat) this Friday at 11:30. Place to be decided, but I think it's Pad Thai ... wherever that is. LOL!

I sent you my cell via PM, it would be nice for all of us to meet up at least for lunch or a short ride together.

We only have 3 more days to vote for the finalist in the BMW Trophy Challenge. Polls close Friday 10/12. This is my last shameless plea for everyone to get the word out and vote for Andrew Lacy (myself) to go on to the South America Finals.

Hopefully I will know one way or another just in time for the party at BWDR this weekend. So either it will be a celebration or a commiseration ride for me. /

Here is a direct link to the voting app in case you need it: https://www.facebook.com/BMWMotorrad...64801563554262 To vote simply click on my picture.


--Thanks, Andrew Lacy


PS: Here is a form email if you feel the desire to send it out to your email contacts.

Hi All,

The GS Trophy 2012 voting is only open for another 3 days! Check out the voting tab on www.Facebook.com/BMWMotorradUSA to cast your vote. Each person can only vote once!

Here is a direct link to the voting app in case you need it: https://www.facebook.com/BMWMotorrad...64801563554262 To vote simply click on my picture.


Get the word out and Vote for Andrew Lacy

-Andrew


PS:
Here is an article that was written about the GS Trophy Event, kind of interesting and has some good pictures attached.
