Nope, I'm going with regular tires. The ground will be completely thawed. I will try to find time tomorrow to hit Home Depot for some new riding gloves though.

Sure, is be happy to. I have a bright blue Dodge Dakota 4x4 and on my KTM, I have a black bat on my front fender (leftover from Halloween) so you can find my bike. Look forward to meeting the legendary Doc antagonizer.

I did go assist some parachute jumpers that landed at an event once. I don't know the exact name of it, but it was very close to (or in) Ellington CT. It was a HUGE event. So the point is, it went off perfectly. The large crowd was silent while the Star Spangled banner was playing and as soon as the song was over, the jumpers were landing. The jumpers had a BIG flag hanging. The crowd cheers and a hundred bikes or so immediately start up. Yea, that was pretty fucking cool.
That was at the Grassy Knoll in Somers. Always my favorite race..That was a great fast Hare Scramble that the land owners could not get there act together..and killed it off..

I'll be at signup tommorrow guys... We arrowed the second half yesterday, half the guys ran some kind of stud, others ran nothing, there is little frost in the ground. The couse was laid out to accomadate 1 foot of snow. no snow equals fast... so you'll have fun... I ran it with the 450 which is the bike I set this winter... It only hurt when I had to pick it up! lol

I saw sign up opened at 630, I'm a 100 miles away so I would prefer to not be there at 630 on the dot but seeing this is my first event maybe I should. What do you think would be the proper time to get there?

Got my suspension back today. Bike is ready and loaded on the truck. I'll be riding it tomorrow.


And it is not without a little bit of pride that I ranked #1 in GTR Suspension's Wall of Shame....

Can you guess which bottle is from my bike?

Holy shit...I only change the oil when fork start to leak. It is a great feeling having fresh oil but hate paying for the service.

Been over two seasons for me. How much did you pay?
