    I just got a hall pass to skip out on my son's baseball tournament that day so I'll probably be there.

    Indy, you going? We've got 8 or 9 guys coming down from the west side of Cleveland that I know of. One is coming down Saturday night to camp, the rest of us are hitting the road early on Sunday. Hope to see you there.

    Rxc, what time are you guys headed down Sunday morning? I live between cleveland and Akron, thinking about making the drive down for the day.

    Trying to decide what bike to bring...I just picked up a husaberg 570 but I hear there is a lot of single track so maybe go with the crf250? :hmmmmm

    Thank You. Yes, John is my dad, so I will let him know.

    Overall we had our biggest turn out ever with 267 riders. Trail was in near perfect condition and weather was spot on. I rode in the back in the AM and everything looked good. Was a bit beat (have not ridden serious trail in nearly 2 years) at lunch but had fun in the PM too.
    Thanks again to everyone who came out, and also for supporting Trevor Kline's ISDE efforts through raffle and donation. As part of LCTR, the Kline family's time and effort are a big part of the success of the FR DS, and your contributions will help Trevor represent us all in Sardinia.

    Nice meeting you too RXC!

    Thanks Nick. You guys really know how to put on a great dual sport. I'll be back next year and probably bring a few more buddies. ;)
