    Well... since you asked... 20 people pestered me with PMs (this is always a red flag because it allows people to back out without everyone seeing it)... 7 publicly committed to the ride... all but one bailed by last night for car failure... forgotten plans... kid issues... whatever ! I called a couple buddies and heading to the Ords tomorrow instead.

    Bottomline... internet dirtbikers can be pretty flakey people. I am hopng for better results from this thread. I just hope this doesn't turn out to be ADV-TALK or ADV-BOOK. I really don't have any interest in sitting on a website sharing war stories with strangers that I have never spun dirt with. But with Glenn, Scott and some of the others participating I think we'll have some fun rides. Oct 7 will be a good chance to do just that.

    Less talk... more ride. :deal

    Me and some buddies are planning on going on a trip to the lake beds again. Not sure which ones, we're looking at October 14 but any of you all are welcome to kick up some dust with us. Nothing like WOT in the wide open desert!

    Who needs asphalt? :D

    Mojavemutt can't make the Oct 7 ride. He is thinking sometime Nov to regroup.

    I had conflicting ride opportunities so I'll jump on my back up plan.

    The following weekend Oct 13-14 my ride group will be at Stoddard. Some of us camping for the weekend. Mixed crowd with all sorts of riding apparatus. All are welcome at these meet, greet and rides. Bring the wife for the weekend... or just come Saturday AM for a bike only ride. Nothing epic. Bring a plate for a fun flowing 65-70 mile ride.
