    After watching the guy do Turkey Creek on a late model KLR yesterday...it is all about the rider (and his willingness to beat the hell out of his bike).

    Did you ever get a chance to ride with Glen? he rode that KLR like it was a 2-stroke motocrosser.

    I remember when Terry, him and I were doing "Julio Hill" that he went first, without issue, and waited for us to come up. While we were stuck midway up the hill he actually rode back down to check up on us. :huh

    motherfucker. :lol3

    The pre ride will be Nov. 17th, 9am from the Superior HS parking lot. We'll get an idea of the condition & figure out this years route.

    I was entertaining the idea of an in & out. In including the devil's backbone & the on the out I liked the hills that Yardstick lead us on the pre ride last year. We'd get to do all of the fun stuff twice :evil

    With regards to a pre-ride Friday are some people camping out Friday night?

    And I'm sure the Razer seats are full but if there is a vacancy I know a EMT that would like to go. Last time we worked on "riding 101" she rode my Montesa in a church building. So she's still in trouble for that.....

    Don't take this the wrong way, she is cute, but Don thinks anything with legs is "hot". Just ask Bonzai Becky. :clap

    If she rides in someone's side by side Don will be like "Lassie Come Home" behind them.
