I just got my 300 a bit ago as well, came off a ktm 450 and love it! Been going out 3-4X a week for about two hours or so between classes. Been riding as many rocks as possible, this creek bed is a few miles long. All first gear crawling:

Not that I know squat about riding those type of rocks but...

Running that low of tire pressures have you considered running tireballs ( http://www.tireballs.com/ )? I've used them for some low pressure situations and they have worked great.

I've heard of those tire balls before, but never have used them. Been using the Nuetech Tubliss system for a few years now. Been real happy with how those have been working.

trc,

This spot's in Chico, just outside of town. I might hit you up over my winter break to go ride if I make it down south again. Will let you know.

Was up in Chico visiting Robo-Boogie a few days ago and helped him stitch his exhaust back together. It was beat way past the point of being worth fixing, but we've been sinking all our monnay into GatosBros, so we cut it up and pounded it out and welded it all back together.

Just got this email with some camping info asking for reservations. Anyone know what the deal with this is? Do you have to pay for your spot? Where's the best place to be? Lets get a big ADV group together...

Considering entering this race... should know for sure by the end of next week if I am in or not. It's going to be a last min decision. I have a 2011 Gas Gas 300ec already to go. Could be fun.

Ive been going ou!t to the car race portion of this event for 5 years now. Its crazy Fun! this year in hopping on my 950 and doing a 4800 mile road trip out to the race!
in years gone by the camping has been free outside of the main pit "hammer town" area, wherever you want pretty much. It becomes acres of campers and trucks.
The map shown is the pit area for vendors/race teams only. . This year it looks as though "hammer town" will be completely enclosed and a wristband (20.00+/- for the week) will be required to get inside. Typically lots of food vendors in the town, coffee, etc (no booze)
Last year several HUNDRED porta potty's were on site, id expect more this year. Once the week gets going a party takes place pretty much everynite in one of the bigtop tents in hammer town. It ususlly gets pretty rowdy!
Anybody going out ought to try to make plans to stick around for the week, or at least come back for the thursday qualifying and friday race day. Its pretty damn fun!

Are you in?

A few of us are headed out there tomorrow to poke around through the weekend. Anyone going to be out there and want to ride? Never been to J.V. before, where should we head?
