    We still have spots open for our Advanced Adventure / Pine Barrens 500 Prep course Oct 7th and 8th.

    This class is perfect for the rider who is not sure if he or she is ready for the PB500. We will practice the skills required in controlled conditions and then venture to some of the more difficult sections of the PB500 Route to practice what you learned.

    Email info@pinebarrensadventures.com
    for more info and entry form.

    You never know what the conditions in the forests will be, could be sandy, could be wet, sometimes, both. : )

    Thanks

    hey and don't forget to check your throttle cables for wear! luckily this is just the return cable and if it broke i could simply twist the throttle back closed. if it was the pull cable i'd have to reverse the cables on the throttle and ride with backwards throttle control!

    and since you went that far, might as well take a look at the cams...

    Jack, I am wondering which day would be the best choice if only one day can be ridden.

    Can't wait! Think Friday will be good for Africa Twins, and Sat/Sun hero sections for Rallys!
    But either would be good for any of the days!

    Red Carpet and Rode Way Inn aren't too far from the Econo. Last year I saw someone sleeping under their bike in the Econo Lodge parking lot; that's true love.

    Any of you coming to the PB 500 from the Providence RI area and can haul a set of 5 car wheels and tires for some gas money? Crazy idea that I can get these things off craigslist for my project Jaguar and I have a friend coming to the PB500 and he can bring home from there. PM so we don't clutter this up.
