You did most of that whole thing last year. Do the trip you e-mailed me earlier, Walker canyon. Didn't get a chance to pre-run it, but should be good.

Jeff
I not offering the delivery, just an opinion on the tire. I run this tire and like it a lot for the desert/everywhere, it's described as a soft/intermedite tire but handles the rocks fine, great price and wears well in the dirt, BUT it does not last long on the pavement. It has reliable traction/cornering on the pavement. I keep buying them for the price and performance.

I run the 120/100/18 I've got short legs so the low profile helps

Well there is good news, and bad.


Bad: OK for me, I'm not going to be able to make it.

Work, and during these times, when they call I go.

Good: Someone can have dinner on me.

To all have a good time, and be safe...

Mark.

I know how that is. Not many teams calling this year. I think I'm going to have to get a real job before

Thanks, I am looking forward to being a big bike on the single tracks!
Forgot to answer. Friday we will stop for lunch. Saturday's ride will stop at Virginia City for lunch.
If you go on the hard loop on Saturday, better eat a big breakfast cause it might be your last meal. No lunch stop, carry one. it is suppose to be hard ride. I have never done it.

I haven't missed a meal in 33 years, you think I am gonna start Saturday? I will hunt squirrels with my 950SE and gather pine cones before I miss a meal. Thanks for the heads up, I'll bring something for later on. I will probably eat a lot Saturday night too.

What an awesome weekend this will be, riding and eating, life is good.
