    LOL - I'm getting to old for that kind of Adventure...

    I was thinking I was going to route out dirt roads this year and act my age, but now you had to go and lay down that kind of challenge. I will defiantly pre-ride this year so I know what we are getting into.

    Considering I haven't rode the KTM since that eventful ride I need to dust the cobwebs off and get the reflexes honed up.

    Wow! That must have been some adventure. I keep thinking about how I would like to ride that single track we rode several years ago off of Fanes Creek Rd. I remember Tom was along & I think you rode that with us that day as well. Can't remember who else was along that day. I remember there was a tree fallen across the trail not far off of Fanes Creek Rd that we had to bushwack around. I still have the track if anyone wants it. Not sure I am going to make SLAP this year. Depends on if I can get back from vacation in time. PM me if you need the track.

    I was just thinking about that route. That would be a good one to ride. Send me the track from that ride.

    we will have a 2015 wr450 and a 6 days KTM 450 to rent.
    Only 6500.00 each for the first hour and I don't care when or if you bring it back

    Got it. May want to do a pre ride. Wanna tag along if you can't make SLAP? I'm thinking about close to the whole route we did that day. I think we went through Mill Creek over to Frog and back through that cut through. That give us some road work with some pretty good medium to medium well trail mixed in. I'm thinking by the time we get through Mill Creek hit Combs for lunch then do Frog west to east on the long easier run.

    Morgan Mt
    E Fly Gap
    W Fly Gap to Pipeline
    Hit Blue Loop off of Pipeline
    To Combs
    Road to West end of Frog
    Through Frog
    Road to Fanes
    Down to Turner Bend
    Back to Byrds

    Does he have gas at Combs store now? If not we may want to stash some gas cans there for a refill on the route I'm talking about.

    Might even be a good ideal to stock several 5 gallon cans there for anyone needing it just in case.

    Be a good fund raiser for Razorback Riders.....

    Sounds like a plan. I'm in. Can't this or next Saturday but the weekend of the 21st I am good to go. Could probably do next Friday if that works for you. Let me know what what you are thinking as far as timing.

    Combs had fuel the last time I was there. Will be stopping there for lunch tomorrow on the AR500.

    Not finalized yet. Dirty Dog is still hard at work on it. It should be good. He always does a great design.

    Let's plan on that weekend for a pre ride. I'll say Sat the 22nd but let's keep tabs of weather and move to Friday or Sunday to schedule around possible rain.

    Meet at Byrds around 9:00. Come one come all! Just keep in mind our pre rides can be full of U turns, dead ends, and re routes.

    They are under new ownership and have really turned the place around. Live music most Friday nights, good food and breakfast. They have some basics a rider might need so far as tires or a set of gloves. They put in some RV camping spots and they are expanding to also have some grocery but I am not sure if that will be finished in time for SLAP. and non ethanol gas like Scribe said.
