I love 60. That is all. Even the tight right hander I completely blew today following Coates. Good thing your speedo doesn't work, Steve. 'Cause mine does. And that shit was AWESOME.

My "honey do" list can wait until the weather gets cold again...will confirm my intent again Saturday.
Glad to have you along. Plan on a "dual sport lunch" (aka pack a sammich). You can show up in hooligan mode, but you'll most likely have to wait on me at the turns because I'll be 2-up. Also, my neighbor across the street has never had his 990 off road, so it may be interesting.

Hey DOGS I kinda threw a Sunday ride together for Sunday too. Marshy19 is all for riding Sunday too. My buddy Kieth Bowman who used to be Cycle Dynamics Suspension has committed too on his XR650 and maybe another SE. We had planned on meeting at Slack Auto Parts/Grizzles dirt bike store at 9 AM Sunday. Would love to meet up at the same place and all get together. Would make for a great day....and pics....lemme know

Better bring the Tigger or you'll be waiting a lot.

It's the Hardees in CHATSWORTH Fido.

Fido says to yall for that!
I would love to join yall on Sunday, but can't get away until lunch time. I've got that KLR back into one piece and need to stretch its legs some.

Hope it goes well for you guys. And remember if you get ahead of Twisty, don't wait for him at the first turn. He'll prolly take some random turn-off somewhere and expect everyone to know where he is.

I'm assuming that's where we did the SORCS harescrambles. If so, it was a lot of fun.

I think so. Last time my son and I went out there which was months ago we had the place to our selves. He thought that was great, We did have some fun. I may go by there today and see whats going on.

I may join on the 950 adventure. Still nursing a lung contusion and bad cold (unrelated problems), but can probably handle a DS ride.

Had a blast at HP last Sunday even though I didn't finish where I thought I should have being I entered the woods after the start in third place and never got passed until one young gun in the AA class passed me at the end of lap 4. Oh well, it was all for fun.

Mike it was good to see you again too, hope you heel up soon and can get back to riding. Frank it was good to meet you and some or your racing buddies.

Made a last minute decision to go to HP yesterday to rent a new 350 XCF-W and a 300 XCW for the day. The 350 is about as close to my 390 as you can get IMO. Would be a great do all bike, but for the racing the 300 is definitely the bike I will be considering.

SoilSampleDave it was good to meet you yesterday at HP and enjoy that new bike.

Confirmed in. Sammich packed, Hardees in CHATSWORTH loaded in the gps. Looking forward to a nice ride brisk ride up to Chatsworth in the a.m. By the way, you and the missus could probably keep up with my hooligan mode anyway

Awesome! Should be a good ride tomorrow. The little bit of rain today should keep the dust down. It may sprinkle a little tomorrow too, but I don't think it's supposed to be anything major. At least the temperatures will be unseasonably mild.
