    I have kind of a big favour to ask. I want to take the Jimmy Lewis course on the 27th and I need an emergency contact person - someone who can pick me up if I get really hurt. I'll have my truck etc with me. I have full medical. There's not much point in using someone from home (Victoria, BC) so I'm hoping one of you nice people will help me out. PM me.
    Thank you.

    Take a minute and read page 1 to format what you need regarding camping, dinner, and all the people in the group.

    FYYFF and NSFW will then be able to put you on the list :clap

    Thank you

    I'm not sure where it is. Go to Jimmy's website and use the contact form - he'll send you the info. It's a one day course on Wednesday store the rally and it's $300. There's also a 2 day course the weekend before.

    I almost had to back out but I'm staying in for this ride. I'll be riding up from San Diego if anyone is getting a group together.

    FOLKS WHO ARE LATE IN THE GAME. IT IS EASIER FOR US TO GET YOU IN IF YOU'RE RIDING IN OR ON A SMALL PICKUP TRUCK.

    IF YOU ARE BRINGING AN RV OR MOTORHOME OR BIG TRUCK WITH BIG TRAILER - CHECK FIRST WITH ERSIN (FYYFF) BEFORE YOU PAY OR SIGN IN.

    Hi,

    I signed up & paid this week (#158) and have now convinced my wife to let me bring my 16 year old son along
    to ride as well. He would be carpooling with me (trailering both bikes) and staying in my tent. So if I have the
    codes and fees correct we'd be adding him as:

    Brandon - carpooling w/ L18flyboy #158 - R - CP3 - D3 = $77 ( $20 + $45 + $42 )

    Please let me know if that is OK and then I'll submit the payment via paypal.

    Thanks!

    Steve
