    Well my steering lock crapped out on me this morning when I got to work. I think I'll be ignoring that one. None of you drunk FFs. better move it around, that garage tent palace is sounding better and better.

    No more time to work on the bike until I get back from Mammoth, on the bike list is skid plate, oil change, bark busters (hopefully I have time, they don't exactly fit), and maybe brake pads.

    Have fun you FFKS. Rob from Alberta Canada will be heading down mid day tomorrow. He shall be driving a black dodge with tent trailer and riding a black Triumph 800xc. Keep him away from the Jim Beam Stag fellas or the streaking may begin! Keep an eye on our Medic we have the CBDR to do in July.

    All the best, be safe

    Sign me up for this. Not even sure of any specific destination @ this point in time, but this sounds like a good start

    RIDE ON!

    For those planning to go, stop by my campsite to introduce your self and for a beer. Site #29. I will arrive Wednesday evening.

    Plan to meet at my campsite (#29) at 8:30 Friday morning for a short meeting- so we can introduce ourselves and talk about the ride. I am going to do my best to roll at 9 AM, but am flexible.

    The plan is to stop for a short break at Hot Springs and Teakettle. At Teakettle, we can decide whether to ride Hunter Mtn (if it is passable) or Lippencot. I have no knee jerk opposition to splitting up at Teakettle (one group Hunter and one Lippencot) provided there is a leader for whichever way I do not ride, and all riders are accounted for at Teakettle before we split up.

    It probably is a good idea to make a quick stop at Saline Valley Rd and Lippencot Junction, top of Steel Pass, intersection after Eureka Dunes, Crankshaft Junction and the intersection near Ubehebe Crater. We can decide as we go, and will depend on how spread out we might get. If you know someone in the group well enough to ride together in a staggered formation on the roads, please speak up when we meet. That helps keep the group together while giving everyone "clean" air.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    Cheers,

    Everything is loaded, and after breakfast at my favorite neighborhood eatery, I am on the way! 'Have a couple of stops on the way, but they are right on the direct route. I'll save few camp sites for everyone.

    Missed the PM

    Hope you are done with the vet bills and she heals well. Read the fine print on the pet insurance. I had some many years ago and was surprised at what it didn't cover.

    Stop by and say Hi (space # 1). I should be pulling in noon Tuesday.

    Uhh, is there a lot of sand on this rally? I am down to go but my gf doesnt like sand.

    Is there any camp sites available for 1 tent?

    How much are the "dues" and the dinner stuff that I see on the front page.

    What the hell are you riding:huh

    It sounds like all you are doing is keeping that pile together with Duct Tape and Bailing wire....

    Might be safer for you to walk.

    There's sand if you want to go certain places, and plenty of riding on grated gravel roads without deep sand. Easily avoidable if needed, just choose the right rides. If you can get in the event there's plenty of folks that can help steer you in the right direction.

    Sorry for the late request but is there still time for me to go? I looked through the posts on who to contact to reserve a spot and send funds too, but i might have missed it in the 176 pages. Any help is appreciated. Bringing a KTM 530 exc

    still count as 2 once you get out of the tent.

    same for those rving and trailering, each passenger, except for a child, counts as a participant and must pay the registration fee.

    we will check every trunk and back seat of each vehicle, including those touratech panniers entering the campground....:evil

    Good to have, thanks.


    Let's call it 146.585, that is what I usually use.


    I'll probalby keep mine on the repeater though as I will only be able to use it when stopped, I still need to figure out how I'm going to wire my helmets. (post D.V. trip)
