    Concur across the board with your assessment.....I think the one thing Musquin has on the others is that he is a little younger and a little less beat up from racing. If he can avoid any serious injuries and get a little "Dungy" consistency....he'll be tough to beat.

    I don't keep up with the Supercross too closely. I like the outdoor a lot better....but that is just because I am old....well older.

    No. beyond my comfort level. Good luck and let us know what happens

    Timberlake ride. Second best spot on Eglin. Friday might be possible. Been awhile since I rode there. 4 miles from my house so I kinda know my way around

    Anyone thinking of the Perry Mountain Fun Run 1/29....? Probably too cold for me... but you never know the way the weather has been this year. Never been there, but looks tempting.


    Edit: Reading up now.. just a single 7 mile loop, but still could be fun for a noob like me... lol

    I'd love to see Roczen stay healthy and keep it interesting. I look forward to watching him in the outdoor season, too. My wife and daughter just like him because he's cute. :lol3

    We've been to Atlanta Supercross the last three years, but I think we're going to skip this year. That's a LOT of driving for three hours of entertainment.

    Perry Mountain is always worth the trip. the fun runs are for family and kids so the trail is not horrible but really FUN.

    Watch the weather cause it can get real nasty up there. If you have not been you need to go! Check the PM DS thread for videos.

    edit: dont believe anything those PM guys say!

    Well of course she does....and even if she doesn't you better tell her she does :lol2.

    Waysherr....where can I buy a sheet of expanded metal about 5' x 8' in Pensacola, any recommendations?

    A guy at Industrial parts supply was telling me about a buddy of his and the aluminum trailer he had, how they take it up to the mountains and his friend rides this big Kawasaki and smokes the sport bikes.....I told him I knew his buddy :-).

    You better tell her she does too. It wouldn't hurt your marriage a bit. Seems like a lot of women make the best gumbo around.....the worst I ever had was excellent :lol3.
