Bench Racing!

Ya good time last nite at Shanks. Met some of you die hard dualsporters and some that wanta be. Good turnout. Would have liked a chance to talk to everyone but tough with 20+ riders. The theme nite is a good idea but a bar on a Fri nite could be a hard place to talk or give instruction as in say, a GPS nite. Maybe somebody's garage. Just a thought, not trying to take over. This is a great way to break up the winter blues.

+1 Andy - Friday night after the bike show... for benchracing and heckling your love of Aprilla's. I will put it into my calendar - hopefully I don't have to work that night.

+1 Red Cat! Bar = benchracing and heckling Aprilla's. A garage would be better for GPS / theme nights. Good suggestion. Maybe mid to late Jan? Who wants to host? I prefer a heated garage!!!

I hosted a garage night a few months back and it was great, got the boys together for bench racing and beers. The idea was we'd rotate between garages, but I'd be willing to do it again.

I'd be happy to host in my shop as well. The only problem is that I wont have to drive so I'll probably get pished....

Chasing Baja on the plasma, cooler of beers, bench racing, sounds like the perfect get together. All I need to do it put a stipper pole in that hole in the floor.....

I have a laptop in the shop to facitlitate GPS play as well as some topo maps some people might like...

2010 Dual Sport races...

Second Gear Club has their 2010 Hare Scramble schedule up (which again includes a dual sport class):
Apr 18/19 - Lethbridge
June 26/27 - Corner Grass (Compeer)
July 31/Aug 1 - Fallen Timber (Ghost/Waiparous)
Sept 11/12 - Edson
Sept 25/26 - McLean Creek

There is also a Canadian Enduro Championship coming to Crowsnest Pass (Blairmore) on July 3/4. Great chance to see some of the best Canadian riders in action. Maybe combine it with another epic multi-day ride out of Crowsnest...?

The garage idea is great, but I ain't touching the stripper pole...
Anybody thats seen MY garage knows why I don't volunteer to host.

Can't make the bike show - will be over in the desert.
Will be away for the Canadian Enduro Championship (Blairmore) on July 3/4 too.
The 2nd Gear dates are mostly out as well

I plan to be at the 1st 2 events for sure... you would love Corner Grass (especially with that bald 908 you like so much).

Just been a bystander !

Hi Guys, just thought i would say hi, have been without my bike now for months, but have been reading about all the fun you lot have been having without me, well i won't have to read about it for much longer, come the end of Jan ( may be sooner if the paperwork is done ) i will have my work Visa, which will mean i can go and buy another 640 ADV and start tearing up the trails again.

As for the rides and dual sport events next year you can count me in big time, have missed out on so much.

Hope some of you are going to the bike show in Jan, food before, during and after sound's good to me, plus a few beers.

Thanks guys

Leo
