Knock on wood, looks like the weather will be good (meaning not to damn hot).

It looks like it will be dry, could you please bring some sprinklers?

Is that the smart thing to do?

Anyone else going to be on a smaller bike like my wr250r that would be down for some technical riding? I'm not familiar with the area so don't know what the riding is like. Looking forward to it!

You may thank me later on, in person.

Oh, so us with bigger bikes are excluded? I see how it is... Weightism is it? What about a 120LB rider on a xrl? Would that work? I mean a 300LB rider on a 250 would be about the same. I like technical as long as it's fun.

What about a big guy on a 250 with a trailer pulled behind? Never can tell what you'll see at WetFest!

Yes, there will be a few of us, there is a small OHV area about 10 miles away that has some pretty good trails http://www.riderplanet-usa.com/atv/t.../ride_5ddb.htm and I still want to find that single track that Mr. Fisherman and I found 2 years ago, but turned around when no one followed us.

oh well...

the doggies, girlfriend and I will see everyone at WF (probably gonna take the wagon, since I still don't have a doggie box for 2 on the bike and.. yeah I know it's just a lame excuse )
