    He has been riding since he was three and last night was circling stuff in a moto catalog for his birthday. Pretty sure he's the only 4 year old in Heber city that knows the difference between a practice bike and race bike and has his own trials bike and ktm. :wink:

    For sure I'll ship one to ya. My paypal is mattdevall at hotmail. I'll send as many out as possible before I leave sat and have my wife ship them if she can when I'm gone.

    Harcus I have some at my office. Give me a call.

    Matt, I just PayPalled you $20 for a shirt. There's no hurry for shipment, I know you and your family are busy with all the Baja stuff. Have a great time and thanks for your thread. Walter

    I have a few things left to do tonight and we are headed out 7 am tomorrow. Lets get on the road already. I'm sick of packing, unpacking,repacking and the constant feeling that there is something I am forgetting.

    I'm ready to be on the bike where my job is to ride and finish.:deal

    Its raining in east of San Diego, supposedly its might even "snow" above 4,000 feet in the mountains... It was sub 50 (basically freezing) on my ride today. No storms last long here, I hope its sunny for your prerunning :kumbaya

    Interesting that the bikes are loaded on top of the bed, I've never seen that.

    That kid has a million dollar smile, he's proud of you! :queenie I'm IN for a tee

    Our current plan is to drive to the boarder tomorrow. Cross the nest morning and go prerun down near san felipe. I will ride the race bike for probably 10 miles to make sure the jetting is good and everything is ready then will chase my chasers. Nice thing about chasing near san felipe is you go to a restaurant and wait for them to show up. So I'll be :freaky.

    Day two we are going to run up to ojos area and prerun back towards san felipe. Not very many miles but I wanted my chasers to be able to ride as much as possible. I once again will be hanging out.

    Day three we will prerun the start and I will be one of the ones prerunning. I've never run the start and it will be nice to know the terrain since it will be dusty and congested.

    Day four tech

    Day five race

    Day six race

    Day seven PARTY in La Paz.:D

    I'm not prerunnig much because I don't want to take the chance of getting hurt. It may come back to bite me in the ass but the plan is to ride smart and not take huge risks. I'm not going for the fastest time and will ride my own pace whatever that pace is... Honestly I dont know what it is for that many miles.:deal
