I just stubbed my toe and it hurt pretty bad, don't think I can make it now. I will pass on the info to Matt about the drinks. One problem is he only drinks milk because he thinks his bones are brittle.

By the time everyone has a crap and puts their makeup on, it's at least 9:45.

And that's if no XR 650's show up

Sounds like the Gus Busters are going to have a group to chase Saturday.

...if you are behind one of them, don't stay too close to that massive stovepipe exhaust.

It *looks* like the weather is going to be in the 40's at night and 60's during the day in Idlewild. Good riding weather. Hopefully nothing changes by Friday. This is Michigan.......Hopefully old man winter is done.

See you all this weekend. Cant wait to ride!

Jon

Here is my pre-season facelift of the 02 400 mxc I bought back in December....

Before:

During:

After:



I slapped on the newer headlight and fender, newer style fork guards, hand guards, 06/07 shrouds on an IMS 3.1g '05 tank, '05 seat, '05 450sx subframe and airbox, new exhuast guard, '05 rear plastics, quick release plastic skid plate, sicass led taillight, excel rear wheel with new spokes on ktm hub, bigger ktm hard parts battery tray and battery upgrade, new filter, ktm grab handles, trackmaster rear and scorpion front tires. I think I named it all. Love these bikes, its like legos. I'd like to find a newer swingarm to machine up and slap on. Why you ask? Cause I get sidetracked a lot when I'm in the garage...

I probably won't get up there until late Friday night. Staying in a luxurious hotel in Baldwin, near the x-rated theater and car wash. Will get to the campground by 8am or so and look for anyone who is awake . . .
