    Okay You Got Another Newbee about to be broke in. So Please, Take it easy on me Gentlemen. This will be my first time at the Rally. Hope I'll be able to keep up, I'm riding a 02 VStrom will all the fixin's. Its been off road a number of times in some pretty knarly coal country and I've keep it upright for the most part.

    And as the old saying goes "There only new til you drive them off the showroom floor".

    David,
    My Pal Pal payment has been submitted and after I clicked the Send button I noticed my info was old. I'm NOT in Palmerton anymore.. I'm Now in Kunkletown. If you need additional info let me know. Thanks

    I'm really looking forward to finding some new riding partners at this event.

    Strangely enough,, we both have 03 625's.. He got his Thursday and I got mine Friday.. but I drove farther to get mine,, almost to Erie.

    So yes,, I'm back on a bike.. just not a full out dirt bike,, Dr's orders,, He recommended a "street bike" till my neck and back heal better.. Anything wider than singletrack to me is a street,, so....

    Oh I'll still have dirt just not as much as other years. You will be challenged. Going to be a good dualsport ride with my group. I'll keep the smaller bore bikes with me and my bro will have larger bikes with him. If you liked my offroad stuff from the other years by all means stick with me. It'll be fun I promise you that. And since I have a 625 SXC to through around it'll be even more fun!

    Dave,

    Just sent via Paypal.

    Looking forward very much. Was a great time last year.

    I got knobbies on the old KLR now but it doesn't feel any better than those old Dunlop Deathwings did.

    Hopefully Ill get a shock to replace the one with 64,000 miles on it:)

    See ya soon.

    I guess that depends on what kind of ride you're looking for. Mine will be pretty decent. Street and dirt. Doing some scouting this weekend (25-26). Anyone want to help?
