Im strongly considering leaving my KTM at home. I could bring my sidecar and have my 5 yr old in the hack.

Well I just got another dual sport after 5 years. I haven't been in the dirt in 3 years and haven't done the Shenn 500 since 2004.

Soooo..........

I'm kinda on the fence about going this year.

I have a week to make up my mind I guess.

I tried using the e-mail above and it was sent back to me as "message delivery failure." I want to be sure that I am registered on the 16th. I am also still debating between taking the DRZ400 or the F800GS with fresh TKC's.
