Thanks,

Be forewarned that any bar will probably have the Lions playoff game on the TV Saturday evening and will probably be packed. Like Hollywood said. Lots of places South of the show. Sunday? Not much, but there is an REI outlet at 6mile and Haggerty rd.
Lots of outdoor stuff.

I'm planning on getting there around noon Saturday and sitting in on some seminars. Doug (Harley-Madagan) Wothke's talk is at 2:30. Good time/spot for an ADV inmate meetup?

Looks like it is going to be a toasty 40 tomorrow! I think I'll ride to the show around noon.

I believe it is Bigtrailmix's 600, but I can't tell for sure. I don't think I've ever seen it go fast enough to make a blurry picture before.

Nice!

Bruno, watching Dakar makes me wonder when are you going to run it? I'm sure you can get a support team for free from our rag-tag lot. We need a new Jonah Street!

Just breakin' it in, I see.
And as for the blurry photo...what she lacks (lacked?) in speed, she makes up for in the looks department.

Two or three 'kick through' primers with the decomp lever pulled - choked.

One 3/4 successful kick cause my weak ass couldn't see it through.

One good one (as good as "i" can muster. . ) and it fired up.

So . . . 1.75 kicks

I don't know how you guys put up with these big bore mules, i'd be laid out if i had to kick 3 more times.
