    Is anyone looking to unload one of those Scott's Steering Stabilizer coupons from the raffle? I've been wanting to get one for my 950.

    I'd be willing to trade a $100-off coupon for a set of Fasstco FLEXX handlebars.

    Hey all,

    I feel awful about it, but I can't figure out a practical way to use the $500 certificate for Masters Paint and Body in Visalia (I'm in Temecula). :cry:cry:cry

    Owner, Perry, seems like a really nice guy.

    I was fantasizing about taking the big white promaster van over and getting some graphics until I found out where the shop is.

    Anybody on the other side of town have something to swap or another idea?

    I'm bummed.

    This summer, after school is out, drive the van up there and drop it off. Pull hte DRZ out and go on a nice week-long camping/riding tour through the Sequoia National Forest and Park. Perry can give you pointers on where to go.



    Problem solved. :D

    I'm headed to Ireland right after school is out. Argh.

    I sent a thank you email this morning, I'll give Perry a call. Maybe I can leave the van there while I'm gone (but I'd hate to inconvenience him to store it for about 6 weeks)

    it's hard to thank each one for posting your ride reports. all are awesome.

    you guys are all great...but mike (molonlabemike), you and your crew made a big adventure out of this event. riding from home and not skipping any opportunity to see more places....:clap

    Thanks Joel. Thankfully we (I really mean I) didn't drink to much to ruin the weekend.

    Also we owe Tim, Jim, and yourself a bike thanks for giving us some solid plans for the weekend. This allowed us to take advantage of what we were able to see. I feel we took a big bite out of DV but maybe next time we will break it up to really spend some time on the funner spots.

    With that said, keep the ride reports up and also lets see some of the prizes that the amazing sponsors put up!

    That Tim from Bradshaw Trail? Wish I'd known he was there, really nice guy. Say hi next time you talk.

    Lots of people, so little time!

    I don't know what could ever have given you the impression that I'm anything other than a kind, sweet, gentle creature. Besides, hacking someone up with a machete would be terribly messy.
    And I'd ride with you again, too. I'd just be sure to check that there was current information on conditions.

    Thank Espi for that shot!

    I'm totally getting one of these (I think getting the valve stem through without taking off the other side of the tire took longer than the rest of the operation):

    You can grab them cheap at Cycle Gear. Got one in my kit, too.
