    I'm still very interested in this ride JP but am the most worried about my piss poor fitness level, how many miles a day do you think the ride is? What do you guys do, eat Advil like it was pez candy the next day or what?

    I know I could search but where did you sign up? was it a webpage or through the forum.

    Thanks

    My concern is transportation. I have a truck and tailer that could carry bikes but there needs to be a driver to drop us off and pick us up. We figure that out and I am in for sure........

Reserved a room at the Orleans with 2 beds (LAB2V finish).......still working on transportation:D......1st night $62, 2nd $91...we can split it 3 ways for 50 each, or if transpo falls thru, I'll go by myself & enact my back up plan......ride there, ride the ride, ride home :D:1drink:1drink

    Folks, sam2937 appears to be a spammer or somesuch -- his posts include HTML that's causing my browser to auto-download a program from a sketchy site. Suggest you don't run that program, and that you put him on ignore.

    The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

    I've been lurking all this time. I've missed you guys. I see new names have been added to the ragtag bunch. Between work(65 to 70 hrs/week) and family(I'm a grandpa x 4now), I've been out of the loop.

    I still ride occasionally; 80% street and 20% dirt. Mostly short runs as time is a precious commodity. I'm still on the DRZ but have added a plated 97 DR350SE to my stable for single track and for my son to ride when he comes out from Philly.

    I ran into stevele last week and he looks great! As he said, he will be back in the game in a couple of years.

    I'm thinking of running up to Shuteye and Granite Creek tomorrow for one last look this season. Anyone interested? I'm pretty flexible on the time tomorrow.

    Like to but cant. Keep seeing mr lee randomly myself - last passing me on the freeway goofing off trying to get me to wheelie :p

    Glad to hear yer still riding, but I'm in the official lurker mode myself. Ride about once every three months with the adv crew. I succumbed to the urge to be a DR650 owner, bout mudpigs 06- ride it every day to work, loving it.

    Good to hear from ya.
