    congrats marcelo. all our LED donations from 3 donors (LED rider, trailtech and baja designs) are high quality and they're all active on the adv vendor forum.

    whatever model you choose, you will be happy.

    I'll do my best to be there.

    With a *working* repeater!


    Funny story. The FT1900 that I was talking about being the superior radio just failed on me, too! I had to order yet another radio to cover my Jeep this weekend. Bad radio luck.

    I wanted to make sure I posted a thank you on here. Not just to Joel and his crew, but to everyone that was there. This was my first off-road adventure rally. You guys (and girls) as a whole made it an AMAZING experience. I rode cruisers for years; the environment that you guys created was a whole different animal. Nobody was belligerent or judgy at all. I will be back every year that I am able to attend. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    THANKS AGAIN TO ALL!!!<o:p></o:p>

    Enough???!!! Aside from the two tastefully applied to the bikes and the four on the seat, I found another one that had tried to hide on the floor, under the edge of the seat. I had to buy another bike to have places to stick 'em all!! :lol3

    Hmmmm . . . Right now I'm thinking of shipping the camping gear and riding out (Hey! It's only 4 days each way!!) but if I wimp out and trailer again :shog there'd be a spare bike available.

    You, Oh Fearless Leader, don't owe anyone anything!!! Maybe we can make it all the way to Reward Mine next time. :rofl

    I'm game for doing another ride out there. This time I might not advertise it as big bike friendly. :eek1

    I might figure out a way to get both the DR350 and KLR650 out there next year, presuming I have both of them in shape. If so you're welcome to the excess bike.

    I'm in! Friday, this time?

    Wow, bike offers even after y'all have seen my "skills". I guess I'll be keeping an eye out for the 2016 Noobs thread. :clap
    Friday sounds good for another attempt at the mine.
