    "In the area" could cover a 300 mile radius for GSA riders. :lol3

    I'd be glad to meet up with you as soon as I get mine back together.

    Anyone riding on Sunday afternoon at croom? Yeah yeah wrong time of day hot etc. I will take what i can get.
    Need to get a feel for the ktm and a run down on the suspension to get a feel for it.

    Haven't made plans yet, will need to get a baby sitter for the kids type deal.

    Keep me (us) posted when you've got plans squared away.

    There's a lot of that place that I still haven't figured out yet. Heavy rains Saturday should make it, um, interesting Sunday.

    Too late in the day for me but please update us about where you went etc...

    May still try to get out there early but I'll be gone (if I go) by that time. Have a great time! Hope you're on the clock if you're with your boss!

    Really don't want to get caught in the rain first day out on the bike.

    Wish I could go. Work has got me pinned down. Great for saving money for bikes and mods. Horrible for getting stuff done to my bike and riding. LOL Just like dual sporting, everything is a compromise.

    Hope you guys have a nice ride!

    Rode Croom for about 2 hours before rain. Which was good, the bike beat me up a bit.

    Going to take some more ride time to really ride the bike to its potential or my limit.

    Don't have any pictures but did take a video.

    Thought of making a new thread but didn't want to feel like taking space?

    Anyone going to the ftr harescramble on September 9th? I want to go for a retry from last year's flop and almost broken collar bone. New bike new gear so should have a better time.
