A couple more conference calls and now the logo is finished! So... where can I get stickers made locally?

Ready

The fine folks at Carolina Adventure Cycles just spooned a fresh set of Michelin Anakee IIIs on my V-Strom:



While the wheels were off, they installed a new drive chain and sprockets:



And installed new rear brake pads:



My V-Strom is ready for a Saddle Sore 1000.

But seriously.... 3 questions:

A) How would you feel about a Bun Burner 1500 (36-hour time limit) instead?

B) When would you propose this little ride take place?

C) I've long said that Atlanta has worse traffic than LA or Chicago - would you plan to slip through there at night?

I'm in for any kind of IBA challenge permitting it's a weekend and/or bank holiday endeavor.

Here's the video I just wrapped up with GoPro footage from our first day of the Lobster Run a few weeks ago. Tried to keep it interesting.

A) Since Evan has not before ridden that far and since it's been a while for me, I was thinking about doing a SS1000 now and, if that goes well, look to schedule a BB1500 sometime this spring. That being said, I could probably easily be talked into doing the BB1500 now -- if Evan is okay with it -- if someone floats a good proposal.

B) Saturday, November 2nd or Sunday, November 3rd, 2013 depending on the weather forecast and other participants' schedules. (Saturday would be nice as that gives us a Sunday rest day before returning to work.)

C) Was thinking about departing at 5 AM sharp from a gas station right beside the Interstate somewhere in Charlotte (possibly the Kangaroo Express on Rt 49/Tryon right off of I485 on the west side); riding the loop counter-clockwise (that would put us in Atlanta at 8:30 AM on Saturday or Sunday morning (whichever day works best for schedules and weather); and then continuing the loop ending up with a finish at Hawthorne's Pizza in Charlotte on 7th Street. Cigars and pizza to celebrate if we make the time limit. Anyone who didn't want to or couldn't join us on the ride can join us at Hawthorne's, serve as finish witnesses and join us for pizza and cigars.

Off road practice

I live in Cornelius and am looking for nearby paths to get some off-road time on the Tiger 800xc. Not looking necessarily for a destination type path/road, just somewhere I can get a little practice on the loose stuff and uneven terrain. The places I know of are a little too far to just hop on the bike to take a couple practice runs. Any suggestions for the area around the north end of Meck County? I've been scoping out power lines, but many seem overgrown and either way not sure there may not be issues with traveling their access roads. Thanks for any input!
