Dave, I should be able to make it again, but can't commit yet. Lots of stuff going on then and not sure I'll be able to make it out for a weekend. I'll let you know as soon as I can.
Not sure with the whole economy thing if it'll be a big event this year or not. Last year was a nice size. Ended up with 58 riders. That was very nice. Hope to get to that and a few more this year. We shall see!

uhh....xr.......maybe.

Yep, any of those bikes will do. Last year there was two separate rides. One off road, one on road. These two rides splintered into many more groups. You'll find what you need no matter what you ride. We even got to see some harley dude drop his bike.

I'd probably say the Strom would be good this year. Looks like I'm getting more on road/dirt road riders this year.

Thought the warm weather was breakin on through but alas it hasn't. Any way looking around for a bike and I found a few here and there. Seems like people are asking pretty high prices for bikes. At least I think they're high. 04 950's selling for $8g! That's nuts. Lesser priced bikes are out there ya just have to keep an open eye. Let me know if you find one. On another note the Rally is moving along nicely. i will be getting shirts for this year. I'll keep you posted on that topic. Heading to Utah tomorrow. Talk to you all soon. May is right around the corner.
