    Does that question even need to be asked? Even left was doable on a streetbike. :hide

    The 4 inches of rain today should help knock down the dust.

    My trail section work report from last weekend. Added a few pallets (and have more planned, thanks Mother Nature) to a few sketchy crossings, ran down numerous weed infestations with the ATV trail drag and got to give my new electric chainsaw the acid test. After a strong half inch of rain the night before Sunday conditions were, uh... slippery. But my nephew (a youngster with all of 298 miles total off road experience on his bike) with TKC 80 tires went almost everywhere we pointed him with only a few incidents of assistance. Here is a shot of him navigating 'The Sluice"

    Turns out he is an arrowing machine. By the time I got through riding the path with the ATV and drag he was walking right behind me finished up marking. Ah to be young again. Things are shaping up and despite the wet conditions the pre riding had some really fun sections. No, they were not mine Jack.

    The forecast is for 45 degrees on Sunday and you are talking studded tires?

    The final word the event is ON!!
    Yes we had snow,yes its cold (cool?),and yes the Dual Sport will run Sunday Nov. 3rd. As the kids say way to much...IT IS WHAT IT IS!
    One more reminder if you pre-entered bring your photo ID and AMA card failure to do this means you pay the additional $37. Our man OGRE is in charge of everyone who pre-entered and the big man's word is final. I will mention out of 143 entries 12 are in question? I pity the fools! Sign up will be up and running by 7am and you can leave out after that.

    Show that you gotta pair come on out and roost.
    apologies to the fairer sex.

    Fuel stop is for those who need it. Very few should but we had trials bikes and things like A. G. is riding and we would rather plan for them instead of dragging them out on clean up.
