    #455 didn't think I'd make it in this year. Just finished giving the Husky some fresh oil. :D

    I'll probably run the easy route solo this year. Any ADV'rs want to meet up in Stonyford or Fort Bragg?

    I did my first Sheetiron last year in my 800GS - had a great time, thinking of going to the other extreme and doing it on a vintage 100cc two stroker- any thoughts? Am I crazy?

    so, I'm doing the sheetiron for the first time this year as a substitute. I'm interested in doing the hard splits but would like to do it with anyone that might be interested. Want to leave early in the morning too to avoid any crowding of areas on the trail. Looking forward to it!

    Myself and another will be leaving early Saturday morning, this will be my 11th or 12th in a row, almost didn't happen for me this year. Your welcome to join us, probably will be a moderate pace with several breaks. Sunday may be a different story depending if we have to drive home Sunday night, we usually leave late on Sunday after a nice breakfast and take our time.

    Anyone know what time the grounds will be open on Fri? I know sign-in doesn't start until 5, but I assume I can show up at noon and not have a problem?

    Turns out my son's cub scout advancement ceremony is the same weekend!:eek1 Bummer, hard to get out of this one, especially since I am the den leader. Selling my entry for what I paid, $65. This ride is sold out and the only way to get in if you don't have a number already is to buy an entry/rider number from some unfortunate soul like me. PM me if you are interested, cash or check, 1st come first served.

    You think YOU'RE crazy? I'm doing it FOR THE THIRD TIME on an '07 Ural Arctic Gear-Up with a sidecar! Things go bad and we can toss your 100cc two stroker in the sidecar! :D
