    :lol3 Looks like Craig, sounds like Gary. Even the camera was bleepin' by the end. :D

    At least he was out there, I haven't even washed my bike from Hammer Run.

    When you reach that certain condition of being tired, nothing is fun anymore.

    Wish ihad the money. I'll be in australia at that time anyway.
    Ecrane99 is doing baja 250 in the spring too (lucky).

    I think it's fine that you post something like that here.

    I did that ride last summer while in Vegas. It was definitely worth the $300.

    If you want more of an adventure while in Vegas....
    This outfit provides a longer ride: http://www.admotours.com/american_adventure_tours/las_vegas_motorcycle_adventure_tours.html

    Yea , that was good for a laugh. Almost cost me a brake rotor and caliper. It makes the $15 Hippo Hands a no brainer.

    It was a year ago. Last fall if I'm not mistaken. Don't worry, there'll be other rides.

    I sold my 530exc today for $3500. The guy took it to pachaug and called me no more than 1 hr later saying there is oil all over the motor and wtf is going on. Not sure man, just a weird coincidence. I told him to bring it back to my house so we can figure out what it is. he sent me some pics. I told him it looks like a valve cover gasket and suggested not ride it until resolved. He called me later and said he was able to ride it adding a bit of oil periodically, the leak stopped. Anyone see him on the trails in pachaug today? his name is Joe from cromwell.

    On the brighter side..., I will be trolling craiglist for some good buys on a 2011.
