    A young guy from the CT Ramblers did Erzberg, And a young gentleman (Ben) from the Berkshire TR did Tenn Knockout, Finished 4th overall last year and was 7th overall in 2017. (both CT clubs that I have belonged to since before those lads were born)

    He (Ben)also just got his 4th Gold medal at the ISDE last week. As well as another young man (Josh Toth)from BTR was top club rider last year and for that and his stellar in GNCC earned a spot on the U.S. World Junior team and the team USA finished 3rd at the ISDE. THe newest issue of "Dirt Rider" did and article titled Tough like Toth

    Looks like a local Pac NW guy has done the Romaniacs. https://www.seeseektm.com/shop/about
    I would think that the most challenging part of the race is getting over to the starting line...with a bike.

    did you ever watch a TKO vid?


    watch from 11:45 to the 13 minute mark :becca or from 18:00 - 19:00 if you want to see the best riders in the country all laying on the ground at once.

    The new cheater looks pretty cool and the new Shinko front looks just like a GT fatty [​IMG][​IMG]

    N8 is one of those fast old farts in our class. To bad he hurt his shoulder this year cause he would have been a top contender. Looks like he'll have to settle for 3rd overall if it pans out like I think it will.
    I'm 38 so I have 2 more years in Vet and I personally don't see myself getting advanced to A in that timeframe.
    Michaux was a good day. Weather, Temp and conditions were perfect all day. In the 4 years I've raced there, I've got on each spot on the podium. I guess it matches the terrain I ride the most so I ride well.
    I'm waiting on getting front and rear nitro mousses to try out. They should be here tomorrow and I'm hoping to ride with them this weekend and race moonshine enduro next week. I'm just hoping I like them since I'm used to riding with tubliss for the past couple years.

    It is the fatty, just with a shinko label. Where did you get it?

    Ole Two Flags don't mess around on the 950... I can take about 90% of the places I can take my 300 just slower and louder.

    I've got a nitro mousse for my rear. To many flats with Tubliss during races.

    I did TKO this year. That is a fucking stupid idea. Not a stupid as in this is going to suck but we will get through it amd laugh later, but stupid as in you will drive a million hours to ride a fraction of the course.

    I'm saying that as a person who has done a lot of stupid things on 600+ cc bikes.

    BMW guy houred out like two miles into loop one and never even made it to the parts where a big bike is a huge disadvantage.

    Got a link? I tried some 3M stuff and it sucked. I'd like an option other than the Gorilla.

    Some highlights from this past weekend. Both me and John had cameras again so I edited both into one video.

    I love videos like that. After watching it my arms are tired and I have sore shoulders. If I was 40 years younger and 6 inches taller I'd love to ride that course. :-)

    I'm not sure it has to be that complex. Or will it double as a growing facility? Hehe I'm thinking an extension cord and power strip ought to just about cover it. A 12v charger/floater to keep a deep cycle lead acid ready would be a nice night lighting perk.

    What are you doing for ventilation?

    There's nothing like a flair for the dramatic!

    Blessings you're physically ready to ride again.

    Maybe try the tubliss rim tape. I had that already on from my tubliss days. It seals the tire up pretty good. You might want to put a tubliss on the rim and inflate it to really make that tape seal.
