Ok, let's lock it in for 10:00 am start. I'll be there between 9 and 9:30.

I'm planning on getting some videos of us going through some of the more interesting stuff. It shouldn't hold us up much.

Anyone else want to commit? Or just show up by 10 if you want to go.

See ya there.

For a second I thaught you were going to race the Dakar Rally...You will eventually get a dirt bike when you gonna be sick and tired of fighting through those trails on a 430lb bike.
Have fun boys.No bikes for me for 6 weeks

Yes, meeting at the NETRA lot at the end of Dow Road. We're due to get a little rain, but overall, the conditions should be much less muddier than they are in the spring. I'd be worried more about doing the lumpy single track trails but if you feel you can handle it, and won't be too upset about some bumps or bruises on the bike, you should be able to do it. The pace wont be exceptionally fast.

Claudio - we'll see ya in a while. Hope you feel better. I'll try to get enough pictures and videos to raise your spirits a little.

I have bombed around on some of the trails and I have had no problems thus far. I have not pushed it on the more technical stuff because I have been out solo. But I am very much looking forward to getting in over my head - and I am certainly not too worried about a little bruising -both to the bike, body and ego.

funny you should mention that - i saw that post awhile back and thought "too bad i wasn't there" - i do have both spare levers (brake and clutch) and spare cables (clutch and throttle) in my "spares kit" - only I have not fitted my new tool tube yet and am not sure if I will have it on by this weekend............. I might be kicking myself if I don't though.

If I...

... wanted to join you guys (and you would permit me) would the NETRA lot at the end of Dow Rd be obvious?
