Yeah I heard this as well which is what makes me think my position is off.

Calling all nOObs

I get PMs from nOObs requesting that we give them the opportunity to learn from the advanced FFs.

This is an opportunity for you FFs to return something back to the ADV community! in return, the nOObs will ride faster and you don't have to wait as long, however the nOObs will remain your pack mules until they're ready to kick your ass.

Let's plan something between Oct and Nov to set a couple of weekends dedicated to nOObs with the participation of the advanced riders.

In addition, Trailtrick will offer his help in showing us how to set-up our bike's suspension.

Just want to emphasize the reason we're all here is for friendship, fun, food, beer, and the experience. Is this cool or what?

Thanks.

And the 950 spit out even more rocks with Nowwhat hanging the back end out every corner I stayed tight on the corner exits and watched the barrage of rocks go shooting past me. Those 950's sound great on the gas! vvVVVVVRRRROOOoommmm

Guess I'm somewhere in the middle...not nOOb...not advanced.

Hey Andy

Nothing like saddle time to gain experience. Break out one of those Adventures and join us on the almost weekly H8chains or Razr rides.

Ok, if you're still a nOOb, then I am Dunerat...

Gorman wasn't a problem...we had 3 baby sitters, Bouncing Billy, Bulls Eye, and Mr. Sawsall (Rob).

I wasn't babysitting. I didn't have enough beer to share, so I rode in the back so no one could see me drinking .
