Hmmmmm... the rodeo is a big deal. Maybe another weekend would be better?..or, maybe the rodeo will offer a little extra entertainment? I'm still planning on riding through on my way back from the 49er.
What do you guys think?

Nice catch, Mike.

Hi, Bob

way way too much going on memorial day weekend to do a trip like this.

schedule it for a couple weekends later, and you'll get a better turnout.

I'm not concerned about a big turnout per se.. and after Memorial Day I've got pretty much every weekend through the end of July spoken for. It's the beginning of the rally season :-) If three or four can make it Sunday, good, if not, that's good too. I'm still planning on riding through. I've never been to that rodeo anyway. A couple guys at WARPED mentioned having a RTE in the area soon, and this was the only weekend (at this point) that I could do it.

Which of course, isn't to say that SOMEONE ELSE couldn't schedule something in the area

It's clear that you are getting too old to ride.

I might be able to make it out Sunday. I grew up in paso and I'VE never been to the park field rodeo lol. Any idea what time of day you'll be through? Make a little ride out of it? What are you riding?

Sounds like fun. But right now the GS is sitting without shocks --GSWayne decided that the shocks needed to be re-built before we head up north this summer.

Good move. I neglected mine for too long and the rear self destructed, fortunately in the driveway. Custom Ohlins followed and I'm happy :-)

Does that mean that you are not going to stop on your way south?

I am/was hoping to get the T/A operational and make a test run up with it.
