    I thought I would get my truck stuck!!! First weekend I owned my new truck is when I took the DR up for the windscreen. Went from a 4WD to 2WD, it had been raining and I was worried!!. I had seen the pics and heard the stories about Pfuntime Road!!!!


    Maybe soon I get up there to actually ride...........

    I am hoping SanJoh will get the compactor out for me and fix all that nasty sand on the trails!!!

    So how was the qualifier? How did you do? I wanted to try it but after the tree mating incident in 2012 I have lost a bit of my nerve on the big bike. Maybe next year..................

    what an event! Placed 4th on day 1 (road skills) and 4th on day 2 (offoad) as well (weird!) but after a grueling morning of dragging an F800 under bridges on its side and through trees, huge boulders and the deepest muddy creek there ever was...I lost all my energy on day 3 and didn't make the final 3 but very shocked that I finished 4th on the first 2 days...go team USA!

    I'll post pics when I can find them...

    I dont know which thread people are looking at now...advrider club one seems to be gaining some steam.

    Anyways, do any of you guys down here plan on going to the upcoming FTR hare scramble? Its october 12-13.

    I'd like to go, but only if I can split the traveling costs with another person (or two).

    PM me if you would like to set something up...

    I look at it this way now - this thread for just staying in touch, the other thread is for riding.
