The mud will be fun. Just wear bright orange today.

Anyone with a big head need a helmet. I have a XXL Scorpion EXO 900 for sale. It is a flip up modular helmet with flip down sun shield and a fancy pump adjust fit. They sell for about $250. This was worn twice by my dad. It is too big. It is like new. I am going to post it on the Fleamarket for $100 plus shipping. Real good deal to a local sell or interesting trade. PM me. I am in Gloucester so will also post on Hampton Roads.


The V shaped pad is from some other unknown helmet.

Trick is to go real fast and stay on top of the mud.

Motorcycle show in DC next weekend

I am thinking about leaving around 12 on Friday for the show. Eddie and I went to the show in NYC a couple of years ago and Friday afternoon/evening was uncrowned and more enjoyable. Anybody else interested?

I figure I will drive to Springfield and get on the Metro, hit the show, grab some dinner and head back after the commuters are off the road.

Todd, that looks like a sloppy mess!

Over the past few months, a few of you have asked about the GS Trophy Challenge and the type of terrain encountered. Please see link that was graciously shared by Bill Conger...There are A LOT of pictures. There are some really cool pictures of Andrew, some really embarassing pictures on me taking dirt/sand naps and some pictures of cool bikes! Enjoy! The worst/most difficult terrain should be found under day 2 in the woods and all day 3 pictures"

I am taking the wife and kids to the DC show for the weekend, usually we only spend 2-3 hours at the show and then enjoy the rest of the weekend swimming in the hotel pool, going out for good Cuban/Chinese/tapas, shopping and going to a museum. I hope to see you there!

I doubt that really ends it. I'm sure many hunters are perfectly happy to sit in the woods and hunt and borrow a tag from a buddy if they need to.
