It's looking like a 60% chance of rain on Sunday and about 50 degrees. Should be fun
No plates needed at slades...

It's still on.. dress warm and dry and we'll have a great time.

Just some general info:
$15/person to ride
no plates necessary
stay out of the water holes unless you're 110% certain about them
no 2 up riding (sorry upst8)
Of course helmets are required

Still planning on meeting at the McD's in Smithfield, leaving there around 10 to head to slades.. unless everyone wants to push it back a couple hours to give it a chance to warm up just a bit more.. We could leave at noon instead.

I just sprayed the mud off the bike and gear and warmed up a bit, so thought I'd share the great ride that Blinkerfluid, Underkill, Machtig, and I had at Slade's

Conditions were a little muddy, but fun!






A mud hole ate Underkill's KTM, yummy, so they had to 2-up it and then tow it in.







It was a good day to ride, no crowd, very slick, but manageable and nobody got hurt.
Just goes to show that you can ride in some of the worst conditions without incident, but once you put a bunch of cars into the equation.......... watch out!!!!!!

I had a great time today. We got stuck a couple times, but I don't think anyone crashed too bad. Anyway, here are the photos:

Our arrival at Slades






My first stuck. I just about dropped it here, but the mud was so thick it stayed up on its own


The others watching


Underkill killed it


Thats all I have. Stay tuned for next time

Looking forward to the next ride
