    Any ADV people going? I'm there almost everytime but I rarely meet or talk to any of the more dirt-oriented crowd, save for...Pete195? With the awesome XR? I think I'm thinking of the right person...

    Anyway, I'll be there tonight probably around 5pm riding either a white DR650 with black boxes or a white XR600R (very minimalist style).

    In case you don't know, official dualsport/supermoto/adv bike parking is (naturally) near the tiny pile of dirt/rubble on the corner of the Shelter side of the street, directly across the street from the entrance to the Bit.

    Word to ya moms.

    Nice to meet you Huzar, I was the dude you spoke with briefly upon arrival. I always get distracted at giant social events. My name's Mike.

    Somehow I've been in Seattle almost 4 years and have never made it! So I'm IN this evening. Mike, I'll be at your house 530 and we can roll together -- pirate style, bitches! Grrrrrrr

    And apropos of the event my husky is backfiring like a mother (still).

    I missed it too. Went to most of them last year and was looking forward to this year. Hopefully next month!

    I'm usually at Backfire, either on my Silver 900F or one of my little bikes (MB5, assorted Mopeds)
