    Sure!

    On Sunday afternoon after the last ride and the paperwork is done you can take your new waterboxer on the Challenge course. I'd say a briefcase of benjamins would make it happen.

    DAHMIK!

    I had heard no mention of any precip in the forecast until you posted this. Now they're talking about a cold front coming through, with showers, Friday into Saturday.

    So, on that note, anyone interested in splitting a three-bedroom condo? $600 includes the cleaning fee (there's a $150 deposit, but I'm willing to cover that and assume we can manage to leave the place in a reasonable condition) for the whole place for the weekend, It's three bedrooms with queen beds in two, a full and two twin bunks in the third bedroom, plus a pull-out couch in the living room. Four people splitting it would be $150 apiece, six would be $100 apiece, and it has 2.5 bathrooms (plus a kitchen, and the pictures suggest a washer/dryer, in the event things get really soggy).

    The location is slopeside near where the camping has been in the past, so it should be quite easy to hang out but not have to deal with being wet all weekend.

    (I'm operating on the assumption that, at some point, I'm going to get completely soaked, probably on my way over from Vermont).

    Anybody on small bikes heading out from the central Connecticut area? I would be going solo and might like a buddy or two to ride with. Never been to one of these things before:thumb. Thinking of heading out Friday after work or real early Saturday morning leaving on Sunday going back through western Mass to Southwick. I'd be going out through northwest CT riding my XRL with stock tank.

    Get at me. EE

    I'm sorry, but I had nothing to do with the cold front:D

    It would not be CIC without some mud on the slopes. You know you'll love it.

    See you all there. If anyone is riding Sat morning from Western MA or NH, I plan to cross the Berkshires sometime around 7am, probably on rte 2 to 23.

    Spent the day at Hunter laying out the course for the GS Challenge.

    We also met with the food and beverage folks about the party.

    First beer is on Max! Max thinks the sooner you have a beer the more you'll like the pasta.

    :freaky


    If you're on the fence come on up. There is a full on Oktoberfest all day. The Rip Van Winkle rally books go out tonight, the start is at 08:00 Saturday morning at the MAX BMW Motorcycles tent. There will be 60 bikes departing for a great day of riding.

    The GS Challenge is on for 1pm. There are a few great spots for spectators; for a great day ride the chair up and hike down, or you can drive / ride over to the west lift for the hill climb section of the GS Challenge. You can also take the chair down from the summit.

    The guided DS rides will start at 9 and run until the start of the Challenge. There may be guided rides to good vantage spots, check at the tent.

    If you'd like to help out we could use people at specific locations where we anticipate riders to be challenged. Swing by the MAX tent any time and be ready to depart around 12:15.

    The party is going to be great. We've got an excellent space for a nice pasta supper and good beer. There will be some extra tickets, swing by the tent if you'd like to join us. Current head count for dinner is 180 and rising.

    :clap

    Will the guided tour/summit route be possible 2-up on a Tiger? Looking to head up to the top to snag the RVW tag and watch a bit of the spectacle.

    Thanks!

    Are Friday guided rides still a possibility? If so, any idea on timing?

    Not sure as of now, best thing to do is stop by the tent when you arrive.

    If there was going to be a Friday afternoon ride it would probably be around 3pm.
