    I am signed up along with a couple of buddies. I signed up last year but since it was canceled I carried my registration over to this year instead of taking the refund. I have been every year since 2012 and it is a great weekend.

    That's usually later in the year, so hopefully as we get further along.

    :jackI signed as soon as I found out 2021 was a go! I’ve been attending since 2009. Signing up really early is the only way I’ll ever get to ride with a number “1” plate number......

    :pynd 5175D34C-B6EA-495F-9B21-D44E0CC201E0.jpeg I dusted off my collection for a photo. Two black dogs and one Rat dog trophy. Third place is the best I’ve gotten. The 2012 Rat dog was the toughest poker run ride I’ve ever done. It was held at Diamond Mill. The Tallest trophy is From Trailsman mc club. After 2010 I stopped accepting poker run trophies. Let the club pass it down to another rider. 5175D34C-B6EA-495F-9B21-D44E0CC201E0.jpeg

    Funny, had to dust off years of dust too, even 86'ed a spider.
    Trophy's live out in the garage.

    Zoob and I did a bunch of Rat Dogs too.
    One trail memory was DC.
    So steep the rear wheel was very, very lite.
    Our boots were hanging out with the front wheel axle.

    I asked Tom N. what the DC real name was.

    "Dick Crusher", he said with a big smile.
    Got that right.

    The D.C. trail! It lived up to it's name. I rode that at a Rat Dog a few years ago. Riding up it would be some good work.

    I won the best prize at the Rat Dog in 2000. Met this guy on a dead end spur road when he screwed up his roll chart and went off course. He followed me to the next reset, and the rest is history. Married 20 years last month!

    I'll likely go do the Black Dog. Tom always shows me something new in my own backyard!

    I think our crew is committed to the Giant Loop Rally, that same weekend. I need som redemption after 2019 when I broke my collarbone after hitting the tarmac on the way back to camp.
