I was back but now I'm in front of the computer (oh what fun!)

Thanks for all the positive comments about the demonstration and the tips I gave out. And Finn for the awesome pictures. Did anyone see how the GS was the only bike stuck in the sand?

I wish the area was better suited for doing a demo so we could do more with volunteers as that is often the best way to see some of the drills work. My offer still stands to event participants if they have riding questions, PM me and I'll get back to you with some sort of an answer that usually starts with "slow down" or "stop" then...

Don't forget to look into land use groups like:

www.sharetrails.org (Blue Ribbon Coalition)
www.corva.org (California Off-Highway Vehicle Association)
http://www.stewardsofthesequoia.org/ (Stewards Of The Sequoia)

Join, participate, get involved and take ownership of your public lands and protect your riding areas.

And don't forget the Noobs Rally is just a great way to launch you into riding with a bunch of like minded riders. It shows you how some riders who were just Noobs a few years back remembered what it was like and felt like giving you a kickstart. Awesome event!

Man what an experiance. Thanks to everyone!. I was so nervous. i literally was up until 4 am (with the help of some really good friends) on monday night putting together my top end. Bigbore kit, 1 new cam, valves, buckets. I felt sick, just expecting something to go wrong 120 miles from camp. My bike ran the best it ever has and on the best trails ive ever been on. I wont miss another noob rally and look forward to other ADV rides and riding with new friends from the rally.

If that indeed was your personal gauge then it would be only right for that to be sent back to you.

That is why we dont let the drunk people run the show at WARPed which is coming up in a few weeks I might add still room for people to sign up.

I'm very excited to see your pics! I'm not positive, but I think you took some photos of me on the Thursday ride to Osborne Cabin. If you did, you're the only one who has evidence of me actually being at the rally! Hopefully my bike is upright in at least one of them!

Google your screen name on YouTube, the film they got of you in the tent after you passed out is priceless.

I would be more than happy to give it back to Mr. Joel and tried, but he was more than gracious the night of the raffle and told me to keep it. He is a stand up dude. The drunk dudes are what made the raffle interesting, give it up for the drunk dudes!!
