    Ouch!

    Hope it can be fixed easily and didn't cause any other damage.

    Bummed I couldn't make it. I was in South Carolina's flatter, sandier, less sophisticated cousin, Florida.

    Hoping to get some new tires put on today and get one more shakedown ride in before the Sandblast. Anyone want to get out for Wambaw and FS Saturday morning?

    I might be down. I may be going out of town if the little guy isn't sick. If he is I'm staying in town but can go out for a ride. My suspension should be back by Thursday... I'll let you know if you should expect me.

    Sunday looks better for me too. I'll prolly meet up at the trail head though. I'll likely be with @fallguy We both have some new gear we need to get dirty. We're gonna trailer them in. What's a good trailhead time for ya? Well try to be geared up, off loaded and ready to roll at what ever time.

    Sounds like @Kilmern is out with a busted shock, so I'll plan to just head straight to the trailhead at the above time unless I see someone pipe up on here before I leave tomorrow.

    Also, as an aside, the Sandblast Rally is looking for volunteers for next weekend. It's a little less than 3 hours north in Cheraw, SC with racing all day Saturday. Although it'll be my first time there, it seems to be a pretty cool, grassroots focused event that should be fun for volunteers and racers alike.

    Looks like a couple wr's and a KTM 350 should be there to join you.

    Good times had by all today. My new chest protector worked great when I hit the tree. Money well spent. 1 out of 4 I think didn't hit a tree. I hit two to make up for it.

    Last weekend was last day of moving for me, house is sold as of 3/1/17 if all goes as well.

    Will be out of town this weekend coming but should be free to meet up with you guys on upcoming weekends.

    I hit one tree very hard, that probably also counts for more than one.

    Luckily I had another subframe sitting around that I hammered into use. Zip tied and ready to go for the race!

    It can't be that bad you have a pipe wrench out.

    No shit, your chain ended up on the wrong side.

    Everyone knows a proper motorcycle has the counter sprocket and chain on the left side.

    Good luck!

    I'll be riding the Wambaw south loop Saturday morning starting from the trailhead around 9:30 am,
    might ride up to Boggy Head via FS roads and then back to Wabaw for a possible second loop
