    I'm debating on going. I think I'd be on the little bike since realizing the front wheel is bent worse than I thought when I put dirt tires back on the GS for a run to Carrizo a few weeks ago, and the shocks are just about worse.

    However, I've not touched the little bike since WMRS and I bunged it up pretty good so it needs a bit of work and tires at the very least.

    I dunno, someone convince me...

    OK, I'll try.

    No rules, no registration, no whiners, no give aways, tons of alcohol, good riders, show up when you want, leave when you want, smoke what you want, excellent trails to ride without doing 40 miles on the pavement................................you know, kind of the like the anti-Noob rally. :freaky :lol3

    Hmmm... I've not been to DVDaze for 3 or so years and only done DV once on the little bike. If I can get the hall pass, or we don't have a family trip that weekend, methinks I could rock.

    Anyone planning on riding out (as much dirt as possible) from LA? Looking for a partner or 2 or...what the heck... whoever wants to join the party. Need a GPX route if anyone's got that (I haven't searched yet). Busy:1drink
