Grandma's buick road? Perfect. I'm still wearing my mx stuff though as I bet I will bounce along on my head a couple times anyway.

Thanks but the bike is a Husky TE610 - the engine was adopted from the LC4 line. Its not the valves but the cam chain. I want to replace it sometime this winter and am not sure if I want to do it myself.

Ack, I really wanted to join this ride but I've got a job interview at 130 on Weds. Anyone interested in going up the backside on Thursday? I'm on a big GS with battlewings so it might be a leisurely trip.

What happened to the "Deathride II"? I was all up for riding over some old wrecks and seeing how "gnarly" this route was.

Well, that is one of the plusses of working weekends - week days are kind of open but you have to kind of be willing to live on not much $ and seldom seeing your friends on the weekends.

The ATK is not street legal (yet) y'all have any thoughts on a good off-road only ride till I can get a plate on the thing?!

...I COULD take the plate off the ADV, but the ramifications just don't appeal.

Oh, and right this second, I have Fri off and nothing to do

I can't make Wed. Job interview, then off to my PT job buying gold at the Foothills Mall

Death in the Desert II is on if anyone wants to go.

I haven't seen much interest in it though...so I wasn't sure if anyone wanted to blindly follow me out to the desert. It is just remote enough, and just rough enough that I probably wouldn't ride it solo...so if you're in, I'm in.

I am in and I am sure we can drag a few other unsuspecting souls into it. If you can ride that 800 on it, it can't be all that "rough".

If I had some dirt wheels on my xrr I would try that whole death in the desert thing as well. It may be a couple months before I can afford wheels though. I keep hearing so much about it that I want to try it now. I always loved the really rough, tight, challenging singletrack when I was in Co.

Gummee we can try a couple places off redington Friday. I think there are some pretty cop-free areas up there.

I'm going to be volunteering at the hospital soon which may cut into my riding time. But for now I'm good to go.
