5/21/18 thru 5/23/18 Gambler 500 Mini Bike Enduro My van loaded and heading to the Off-Road Vehicle park, south of Prineville, OR. To haul my XR100 in the back of the van I flipped the cot on it's side to make a little more room. It worked but not well. This week I'm in Portland, OR to attend a couple of events and while I'm here a new bed is being created for my van. Most of the work was completed on Sunday and it was painted so dry time was needed. The installation will be done on Wed. and I will be able to show you pictures of the new set up. I'm excited about it. Back to the mini-bike race. Our camp was set up and a little decorating was done. My XR100 was being used as a pit bike. The mini in pristine shape just as it was unloaded. Rainbow007 and LC Garage taking Jax for a little walk. A few things are seen in camp the first day. Kootenai Rider taking the XR100 for a little spin. Everyone was having fun. With the bikes being minis there wasn't a lot of dust kicked up as people were doing their Fri. evening test rides. Coming in by the bus load. The Gambler 500 is a car event however they have expanded into the mini bikes. Here's one of the cars bringing in a mini. The Gambler500 website: https://www.gambler500.com/ What Wikipedia says about the Gambler 500 Rally: Mostly off-road Rally-Style Navigational Adventure using cheap, impractical or fun vehicles. Participants are encouraged to spend no more than US$500 on their vehicle; however, this limit is not enforced. Vehicles can be modified with no cap, but as public roads are used they should still be in compliance with the law. The Gambler 500 began in Oregon, which is now known as "OG500", the event has since spread across the United States, Canada (Gambler 500BC) and Iceland (G500ÍS). The motto is "Always Be Gambling″ abbreviated to "ABG". Since this is a Ladybug report a flower is a must.....Out in the high desert, this was the best I could do. I'll be back in a bit with the race pictures.
