Just got in from a little two day run that included the three twisted sisters, a few bump gates and a small amount of gravel with some water crossings. The '93 Moto Guzzi Cali 3 ran flawless for the 850 miles. Pic's later.

Now where to go tomorrow.

Great Pics...You coming to Roll the Bones Rally? I believe we have decided to have a photo contest at the rally...do you have 2 Guzzis or did you just take the hack off?

Sog, it does fill different and I have to remember to shift, plus the integrated back brake is operated by foot input.

Ghost, I do plan to do RTB and will register in a few weeks.

Most of the loose gravel is off 581 from the re-topping and it looks like 2005 will be chip sealed before the rally.

By the way where is bump gate road? You can answer in a pm.

And Bumpgate Road (as well as the Haunted Bridge Road ) do not exist. They are simply fignewtons of our imagination.

So do I need to plan on the rig for the "dirty route"? That is if I don't find it before the rally.

All I can say about it is that it's a good things my ABS works well in the dirt to make up for my lack of dirt braking skills

Got my crash gear on order! Now it's a waiting game, but should be here with plenty of time to practice for RTB
