    The more people the more fun, food, n drink. I'm pretty sure all the rides this year are going to be on road, dirt road type rides. Don't think the off road single track is going to fly. To many people around the area have hard on's for the whole off road motorcycle thing. It suck's all over!!! We will get together some really nice, long ride's with a bit of off road stuff here and there. It'll be great. Looking forward to seeing everyone. :freaky :clap

    Hey Steve,
    it is great to hear that you are doing well and that you might be able to ride - hell the rally is in your backyard! :eek1

    I don't know if you remember me - I am the guy with the cabin up the road from your house on Stony Creek - behind the alpine Bakery. My Dakar was int eh shop 2 years ago when you were on your sweet Gasgas. Last year I was on a 640 Adventure -

    anyway

    looking forward to riding up in JT again :evil
    this rally is the best :freaky

    Teeth to the wind,
    Sno Dawg

    You dont wear them now? I know you have to go to nursing homes all the time in your line of work.. I put the pipes and silencer back on my old 250,, went up picked up a gallon of hightest,, mixed it up 44:1.. poured it into the fueltank.. pushed her out onto the driveway..sat on her, ready to kick,, went to pull the choke up,, and realized then,, just then that 2 years ago I had to borrow the choke assembly off this bike to get my 03 back out on the trail to go on a ride.. a $10 part missing for 2 years.. and I could have buzzed the neighborhood today.. senility has set in.. forget the depends for me,, I'll get a hot nurse to clean me up..

    I'm sure all will enjoy the rides that are planned. Alittle bit of everything except single track. Looks like the planned rides will take in more northern portions of PA, which is a good thing. There is alot to see and do.

    Question, is there any of the group who would like to take a side track durring our main ride on Saturday and ride some zip-line? Check out www.snomtn.com ski area web page, It looks like fun and would be a good stop for lunch. I'm pretty sure they will be in operation come the event.

    Time to get the sign up sheet going. I know I have some guys logged in already but know it's time to start getting everyone in. April is here and May will be here before you know it. Cut off this year will be May 20th or 60 riders I think the 60 is going to reached quickly so get on it.
