    I believe that the Alley Sweeper is the 3rd stage of the AMA ISDE this year...

    Alley sweep would make a great transfer section between special tests.

    When/If you put on an event, look on this calendar here http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/2017-pnw-motorcycle-calendar-of-events.1193547/ first to see what other events it conflicts with. Looks like someone didn't want a very large turnout again this year at the Sweeper. Lots of riders are having a hard enough time deciding to go to the ISDE or the Desert 100, let alone the Alley Sweeper. Kind of a bummer really.

    or #notmyalleysweeper2017

    Last year was awesome! This year I hope to improve by not losing the map and getting lost half way through ;)

    Speaking of losing the maps, any way I can get an early copy so I can map it out on the Rever.co app? This way we won't need the paper and we can even download the GPX files for use with other devices. Just a thought.

    The maps make nice souvenirs, but for navigation, I just follow the other motorcycles.

    Sometimes the know where they are going, sometimes they don't, sometimes they just go in circles, but none of that matters much. :ricky

    Last year, the group kept getting smaller and smaller and eventually we stopped and started shuffling around with maps haha. This year I'm following you!

    That's just the way they talk in that part of the cuntry. You probably cunt believe it, but its actually more of a cuntroversy when he doesn't call you that.
