Ecrane99 is doing baja 250 in the spring too (lucky).

I think it's fine that you post something like that here.

I did this tour last year and it was a blast. Helps get tid of the winter blues too.

PM me if you have any interest or questions.

(I posted here for local riders as there is a max of about 10 people. I apologize if this is improper use of this site... if so, someone tell me as I am a newby.)
I did that ride last summer while in Vegas. It was definitely worth the $300.

If you want more of an adventure while in Vegas....
This outfit provides a longer ride: http://www.admotours.com/american_ad...ure_tours.html

Yea , that was good for a laugh. Almost cost me a brake rotor and caliper. It makes the $15 Hippo Hands a no brainer.

It was a year ago. Last fall if I'm not mistaken. Don't worry, there'll be other rides.

Even Jan 1, 2012 was nice. Except for that stick that put me in the hospital. I'll try to not do that again...

I sold my 530exc today for $3500. The guy took it to pachaug and called me no more than 1 hr later saying there is oil all over the motor and wtf is going on. Not sure man, just a weird coincidence. I told him to bring it back to my house so we can figure out what it is. he sent me some pics. I told him it looks like a valve cover gasket and suggested not ride it until resolved. He called me later and said he was able to ride it adding a bit of oil periodically, the leak stopped. Anyone see him on the trails in pachaug today? his name is Joe from cromwell.

On the brighter side..., I will be trolling craiglist for some good buys on a 2011.
