The BMA put out a call for volunteers to clear brush and other crap from some of the trails. I threw my name in to help out.

Bunch of riders meeting at the highlands golf course at 8:30am to decide who is doing which trails. Bring a folding saw of something to cut branches with if you're interested.

Looking for some advice for tomorrow... I have a top case. It would be nice to have it tomorrow, but I can see some possible reasons to leave it behind. What do you think?

IMHO I would leave it at home...riding last year with a guy on a GS and a topbox...it some how came open and spewed the contents over about a km of trail before he realized!

Tank bag or backpack prolly work best!

I will be at tims as well. I will probably turn around some where around lunch in hopes of getting back into town around 3pm

I will be bringing LOTS OF water and and a two sets of freshly installed bearings in my BRP. I never knew that bearings could come out looking like someone stepped on a smartie!

welll .. i wont make it.. i broke a stud on my front axle mount. i will be trying to find a proper 1 inch 10 mm bolt to use. I will hopefully be riding but not anywhere near 7 am in almonte.

stupid retard strenghth... i really need a torque wrench.. i dont know how i can snap a stud with one hand and the smallest driver i have.. but leave it to me ...

on a different note.. does anyone want to arm wrestle.. im sure i will snap your arm off while drinking a beer and talking about dirt bikes.

Bad judement call on my part. The trail proved much more difficult than anticipated. Hope the scratches from all the tip overs are minor. All in all a fun day, I hope....... Good to meet some new folks and see some faces I haven't seen in a while. Pics look good, I'll throw them up tomorrow :)

I had an awesome time... still can't believe I was up at 5am and out the door by 5:45am. That's a first for me.

When I left you guys, at 11 or whatever time it was, I took my time getting to Carleton Place, texted my wife to tell her I'd be home in an hour or so, and she told me her flight was pushed back a few hours so she was heading to the beach with the kids. So I rode straight to Lac Philippe in Gatineau Park and spent a couple of hours re-hydrating under the trees at the water. Just got home a few minutes ago, at 5pm.

Here's a little video from my iPhone. I'll look through the other stuff on my camera to see if there's any good stuff.
