Stopping by Competition Accessories on Saturday was pretty cool. The rain kind of hurt the event, but I got a set of TKC80s tires for $250!

Also, one of my buddies that went won a Scorpion street helmet, my GF won a motocross helmet, and I won a Battery Tender. So not a bad time. I signed up for their mailing list, so hopefully a little more heads up next time on when they have another big sale or event.

You guys scored! I'm that guy that never wins anything...

I was there earlier and picked up some Icon Patrol gloves at 40% off, great deal.

Awesome! Yeah, the tires I bought ended up being about $100 off total from prices I've seen online. We didn't make it until around 1:30. Sorry we missed you!

I can't do Tuesday but I would like to get the Tiger off road too. Unlike dirtysouthjacket I don't have a little dirt bike in the garage and the last real dirt riding I did was like 30 years ago.

If you guys put together a big ass dirt bike ride and want to watch the new guy drop his brand new 12k bike in a pile of rocks I'm in.

Re Tuesday's ride: It's not looking like I'm going to get any playtime this week.

But...my work schedule changes to Fr-Sat off on the first.

I'll be there too. Anyone want to meet up somewhere early Wednesday for the ride up? I'd like to crash the gates as early as possible so I can find a decent place to throw the tent.

The whole thing sounds like trouble to me...
