Once again, thank you Jack for organizing this great event!. You are the MAN

I'm in! Marked my calander, booked a room, welded the frame on the big cat, and looking for a new GPS so I don't get lost like I did last year.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again.

Hey: We went out of our way to make this years route better. We cut out most of the sandy whooped out stuff, except for one hero section on sunday.

In the Pine Barrens you can't get away from sand or whoops, and after a dry summer some of the dirt roads turn to sand, but we're using the best ones.

Saturday is long and fun, Sunday is shorter and easier this year, we cut out the section west of 206.

Jack

Always a great event. The Hammonton motel that serves as the unofficial headquarters is no longer a part of the Ramada chain for anyone who may have trouble finding it to book rooms. I forget the current name.

Sand Experience

Chris,

On the Vstom I've had some sand exposure but not the really deep sand. As for my overall riding experience in sand. Trust me I've paid my dues on other machines from my YZ up to riding the Honda African Twin for about 350 miles from Cairo Egypt out to an Oasis and Back overnight. I've rode an XR650 down in Mexico for several hundered miles at a wack. But the Strom is a whole differnt beast at 460lbs. Now that I;m running full Bash Plate and Crash Bars I don't have a problem throwing it around even more.

Jeff your experience is way over what I did so far on my wee. So now I know I need to team up with a great Strom companion

My calendar's marked and now I just need some more practise!
