Thanks Kevin, I may have to try the Italians next time around, especially if they come with a free calendar!!!
I worked a deal Saturday night to trade a new 606 for a new 803, that'd would be the 606 I should have spooned on before the ride but elected to leave in the shed.... In it's defense the 803 has been on the bike for pretty much the whole 25 hours I have on it which include a MK200 and 21 months of sitting. I got the 200 for riding singletrack and set it up as such, wrong tool for the DS job especially since there are a couple of other more capable bikes sitting in the shed.
Do you still have a bike on the Big Island? There will be some more DS rides coming up of the one day variety with more technical stuff and plans are already in the works for a big one in the summer.
GO JOSH!!! GO USA!!!
