    thanks for the psr comments. i felt the same way.

    i will contact them and negotiate for a better accommodation.

    been so busy lately that i haven't checked in here for over a week. had some official duties, together with another inmate, supporting galacticGS in the mexican 1000 rally. larry (racer #113) finished the race and placed #32 even with a blown motor on stage 1.

    i will post up a linky to the rr once it's up.

    folks, still waiting for the owner of the jim beam chair to claim it. you got 1 week and it will go to trash after that.

    i will try to finish my dvnr2013 rr this week. hope the thread is not buried in the previous pages.

    good to see many PPs are already looking forward for the 2014 rally. i'm IN too....:evil

    thanks cindy, those were mine and yours now. forgot the load rating, use them conservatively.


    yes and it has been years last time i've been there! i need to get out there on a bike this fall. set up camp where it's a little closer - furnace creek perhaps.

    Gold Point makes a great location to make base camp. There are cabins to rent, RV spots with power, and you just make a donation for tent camping. Herb (the caretaker there) will cook breakfast and dinner for groups (about $10 for breakfast, $15 for dinner - full on meals). Plenty of riding to do from there.

    Gold Point NV - http://www.goldpointghosttown.com

    You can call Herb for more info at: 775-482-4653

    990 Doesn't need it because we go so fast over the rough stuff we just float like a butterfly.

    Now the GS...that would benefit from it I am sure...

    Better idea; donate $100 to Stewards and get your own coupon (same one) and a bunch more while helping keep my local forest open! :D

    Ohh, I don't want it either! :rofl
