    Please ask the questions that Osteo needs to answer in his thread in Vendors. This way, all the info is contained in one place and if anyone else bothers to go through the thread, they will find answers to questions they may have.

    haha!

    Ahh... a Ruckus! - Ironically I mentioned them to Kevin at the bike show on the weekend that that should be a class all on its own! sort of like Class 11 at the Baja 1000 :lol3 :lol3 only issue would be the watercrossings - but I guess if you attached 2 helmets upside down they could act as pontoons and you would be fine! :lol3 :lol3

    That is AWESOME! I followed his progress during the rally and it would have been great to welcome him home...he definitely deserves it! Wonder if he might be at the Montreal bike show next month? Would be great to meet him!

    Shipwrek has been in the P2D last time so we will not need to wait untill open registration. We all know how many open registrants get to go!

    Thanks

    That's Great! Like I needed another reason to go to the show! Wonder if there is anyway of finding out the times he'll be there?

    Looking for one more team member to join for the P2D. PM me a brief 'riding resume' so we can get an idea of your riding style.

    Cheers

    Hey Guys / Gals (as we do get a few ladies brave enough to enter and finish - no pressure...:lol3 )

    The entry info is posted minus the entry fee (sorry, still working on it - lots of factors).

    You can find the info Here: in the Vendors forum, page 3, post #35.

    What maps will people be using in the P2D on their GPS? I have Toponav Southern Ontario and I just started checking out the Ibycus Topo maps. Would either of these be acceptable or should I be looking at something else?

    Thanks!
