    I wanna go. The Tiger is going in for it's 500 mile today. It may be done by Friday. That still leaves the Sprint or the ZR7.

    It going in for the 500 today. Ifin Carl's boys can get it done by the weekend I'll bring it down and you can learn me how to keep it rightside up. I'm amazed at the amount of grip it has on dirt but have fear of the coner. Had bigger balls when I was a kid on the 80.

    Barry, I was there last sat for about an hour,F'ed up my leg on a rock/fall and almost quit during the first mile on the "more difficult" trail I did not have a map or a clue but went on and fell some more. I might be able to get out for a short early trip there if we get/meet there for a 8:00-8:30 start time.

    when I was there I only did 4.9 miles. Are you ok with riding with me knowing I might not keep up?

    At the u-store-it place we dumped the stuff? I have to go to west-by-god and pick up a bike that weekend. I'll see if I can time it to swing by and give you a hand.

    Oh, you'll keep up. I ain't leaving anyone out there. When I take the wife, I rip it up for 1/2 mile, turn off bike, wait, let her pass me, repeat. No sweat.

    There are noob friendly sections on both sides of the road. I'll take you to both of those, orient you, and you can return knowing where to go.

    Yell at me to see what the weather is doing. 540-288-1819 h.
