Since you don't want to race how about the poker run or the dual sport ride on Sat? You need to come to the dry side more than once a year.

Maybe, if I get my 600 back in commission, if I can't find my Road Rash Card, if I remember where the cold side Dry Side is, but not on a bike more than three times my weight.

Do they have a Campground 6?

Yes , the Dual sport uses part of the poker run and some other loops opened .some a little tight some real nice switch backs .I did most of it on my 950 last last year .Thats about all I could muster
But I had a blast and the stop at the brewery was nice .

Campground 6 is about 28 miles away in Ritzville - - - and I'll be doing cc camping for this event. I'm no where near man enough to camp out there with the big boys.

It's OK to have lunch at the brewery without drinking the beer really it is. If you want to take it easy Sat. ride with me and be sure to always keep me in sight. That will keep you slowed down and probably really bored. A-1-9 said he's going to ride with me so at least someone will make sure I stay out of trouble.

Have you ridden a 690 and 640 back to back? Even the two generations are not that close. I support the big adventure idea but if a 690 is eligible I want in too. Maybe 700+?

I hope I didn't offend anyone. Fact is had I not got the whole class going I would have bailed as well. It Rained all night long, prior to line up it looked like it was going to be very sloppy and certainly no fun on a big bike.I cant blame those that bailed, but I can still give them a gentle ribbing, all in fun of course
As luck would have it we where greeted to the best conditions I have ever seen at the 100.

Don't mind me, it was just my lame attempt at humor.

I am opting out of the race only because I am a wuss.

Dang Ed,

Beat me to the punch here.

Seriously everyone, if you have a question regarding the Adventure class, post here and I'll be checking this forum several times a day.

NOW... regarding the area that a 990 did go swimming, I copied this tidbit from another forum (TT) that the race chair posted...his words:

"Some potential good news regarding that...thanks to yet another gracious land owner we are pretty sure we have found a way to eliminate that bottleneck spot between the RR tracks and the creek. We need to confirm it on the ground however so it's not a done deal yet. "

This is the tight area that is one-lined unless you are Bobby Prochnau, OA winner and can ride the shale at a 45 degree angle.

Sorry Mike, did not mean to steal your thunder.

Right after posting the flyer I saw there were 2 other D100 threads just started. Doh!

Looking forward to attending another D100! No racing for me though. -Ed

Good...I can put you to work. Can you handle poker punches and a thousand motorcyles coming at you all day?

Well...if your guy manning vendor row in the side-by-side comes cruising by with a bottle of Makers Mark again this year, not sure I'm doing anything on Sunday.
