Be there 10am in the lot, roll out 15-20 minutes later when everyone has their britches and lids on...at least if you're planning on following me, no harm in getting there early and doing your own thing, if you're antsy.

If you're late or get separated, head south on the main trail and meet up at the parking lot at Carbon Hill Road. If you go through a big parking lot and hit a big concrete bridge, you went too far.

If you leave on your own from the trailhead, you'll come to a "stop" sign right after the parking lot. Turn right there and that's the main south corridor. Then just keep on it.

Shit, I don't even know if my KTM is going to start as I haven't even looked at it in over 2 months much less tell if my shoulder/arm is going to hold up. Hate to call you a pussy, but load that bad boy up and be at my house 8:30 Sunday and bring your friends, they are welcome!

Thanks Steve, hope you and Benly get out and have a fun but safe ride.

Indy - 2009 ish Husabergs have the forward leaning cylinder with the crank shaft sitting over the gearbox. Cool bikes, but not quite a KTM clone although the suspension is pretty close

If you need to find someone to hook up with at the enduro, my two co-workers are planning on heading down for it. You've already run into one of them on pitracer. The RIZ is the PO of my Husky and he tends to run a pretty mellow pace. I won't call him slow, but he's more out to enjoy himself than prove how fast he is. He was still flipping the $10 coin between woodsman and Vet C when I talked to him today. Can't miss his Husky 300 says RIZZZZ on the sides.

Yeah, hard to miss his bike with that big Riz on the sides...lol

I've liked what I've seen so far of that Husaberg. I'm guessing it has a lower COG with that configuration.

The ad says it has 144 hours on it. I ask them to give me a quote online so I'm sure I'll be getting a call next week from them. ;)
