    I'd probably come back Sunday if someone's able to clear the track and others are gonna go.

    I'd get there early tho so that no one can see my unloading technique :wink:

    Thanks everyone, it was a blast.

    Checked out the KTM it is a 400 SXC. He gave me the owners manual to look at, but it was too dark already to go look at it. It seems it has had some miles on it as the wheel bearings were one of the parts that he had already replaced. Dry weight in the manual is 267. Seat height is 37".

    I will see it tomorrow.

    Yesterday was one of those days you wish would never end. The weather was perfect with no wind, the ice was outstanding, and we had an excellent group of riders! Plus, I was able to meet some inmates I had never met before.:D

    Vdub.. Thanks for letting me take your bike for a spin.. It brought back some fun memories! Plus, I really liked the way your new tires hooked up!! OUTSTANDING! I gots to get me a set of them. My widow makers don't quite bite like that. :lol3

    Ben, Your first attempt at perc coffee turned out pretty darn good!

    Thanks for plowing Papa and C2. :thumb

    Nice to see the aerial shots. I'm pretty sure if I was trying to plow that there would be a couple intersections :evil
