Staff. I'm conserving, well, whatever it takes, I'm conserving that. Tough spring.

I wanted to start a thread since we're about 10 weeks out to see who else might be going, any free advice, lessons learned, lies about superior performances to be promulgated etc...
Race ya for last place :)

You're on! I keep reading everyone worried about their lighting....I plan on slowing down . I figure I'm not getting rich and famous doing this, so I'm there to have a blast, meet some new people, and come home with all the same parts I showed up with.

Pretty confident that in the unlikely event I show up, I will win that race.

I just looked at the itinerary again.(foolish) 319 total miles day one. 191 for day two.

When was the last time you put 10-15 gallons of gas through your dirtbike in a weekend?

This will be awesome. Bring your monkey butt powder.

The answer to that question is this past weekend for me . Rode 3 days in a row, a bit over 700 miles. Rode some gnarly stuff!

Pffffft, just needs an engine, wheels, and a seat. Plenty of time!

Looks like some late nights ahead. Keep us posted.

We already called attempting to finish in time for RWV. We might have done it by cutting a lot of corners and sacrificing the build quality but neither of us have the ability to do that. The car may see Black River for its first event.

Nice, I just installed almost the same setup on the WRR. Works nicely.
