I personally, for any all-day or multi-day rides, always take two Alleves in the morning, have a decent breakfast and then keep two Clif bars, a 5-hour Energy and/or a sugar-free Red Bull in my bag- and I don't usually do lunch. Not that I do anywhere near the amount of work that you DS'er's do on a ride, but I have on occasion ridden 12-14 hours/day in the past, and the ADV rides I've been doing here lately on Big Bertha ( my 990 ) have had their challenging moments (DS-Lite sections.) Along with copious amounts of water, and two shots of Jack when I get home, I usually survive well enough.

Nice- although I'm having a hard time believing you got it at a college bar... That stuff is not cheap, given you can find it at all in the first place!

Just so you know, the sheriff was out yesterday, we saw 4, one had 2 bikes pulled over. Make sure you're legal.

Mark, I got there at 930, about the same as the rest of our group. We were just about the last ones out. Tom Coffee was there, he plonked along only skipped one section. We had a group of 8 from Crow, that later grew to 9.

Take the KTM and WRR both to crow and ride them back to back on the same trails, same conditions and see how you feel. Flint had lots of soaked topsoil and those I spoke to commented on the lack of traction. Crow is hard clay with no traction when wet.

I had fun but it'd been so long since I spent that much time on a small bike, I forgot how much fun it was to relax and not challenge myself by riding the Adv. Jeff even commented I looked out of place on a normal dirt bike.

I use ice tea or sugar free fruit drink in my camel back. Try honey stinger or Gu double caffeinated energy packs, they work great when used with lots of fluids. Eat them before you get tired!

Squincher and pedialite both work great for electrolytes too.

Honey stinger is good....do that before my long bicycle rides, hit the oatmeal & fruit hard in the morning too, really helps me.

Thanks guys... Benly, PMed ya, I'll grab them soon.

Left Friday morning, and got back Sunday evening.... from playing best man at a big wedding up on Lake Erie. Then started the new part-time gig today, and am working some longer hours to play catch up.

I'm back though... and all good.

in other news, for those few who may be interested, last night I threw my first disc golf ace on hole #7 at the FLI-70 disc golf course . I've been very close on some ace runs lately so it was a relief to finally bust my cherry

Awesome, congrats Shawn!

I know how you feel, when I picked up fly fishing a few years ago it took me quite a while to get the casting and rigging down, and then even longer to catch my first fish- but after I did, I felt like I needed to lean back, have a cigarette (I don't smoke) and enjoy the afterglow...
