How much snow on the ground down there now? Maybe a few of these warmer days will thin it out some?

There used to be the Grassy Knoll in Ellington, it was the closest and no rock harescramble around... It's a shame the Landowner was a screwball and shut it down for god know's what... Team KTM even paid for a practice track to be built one year.. Man you guys would have loved it..
If it didn't rain, it had moon dust like you can't believe. Had to buy dusk masks, it was brutal total sun blocking stuff one year..

That is a link for "The King Of Motos" enduro race happening at 5:00 Western time ( I believe). This is the Erberg or Hells Gate American Equivalent.

Click on Live in the red banner and that should bring you there when it starts.

Hope I did it right.

Paul, looks like we will be seeing more Betas on the east coast. This is from an inmate on TT:

A friend of mine is a Beta dealer here in waretown N.J. I belive he has sold 8 to 10 bikes in the area here since August and I'm trying to convince them all to do the dual sport circuit ( so to speak ) with me which will include the new England classic , quarry run , durty dabbers , shennadoah 500 and a few one day rides . I'm 48 years old and it is nice to ride and enjoy the view instead of racing by everything and seeing nothing !

The addition of the two smoke to the fleet is making a huge difference although I'll keep my four banger. Did you go south yet?

You know, if
One person, just one person does it they may think he's really sick and
They won't take him. And if two people, two people do it, in harmony,
They may think they're both faggots and they won't take either of them.
And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in
buying a Beta and walking out. They may think it's an
Organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,I said
Fifty people a day walking in and buying a Beta and
Walking out. And friends they may thinks it's a movement.

(with apologies to Arlo Guthrie)
