It comes in handy when trapped in a tight space. Can you wheelie? That skill is required.

Good luck, Pasta! Glad you're back in the saddle again. Just remember to back it off a little if you can't see.

You lucky sod. Im doing the wifey thing: We are off at 3 am tomorrow for a quick flight and then three days in the Amazon jungle. Not too bad I suppose, sitting on a boat thinking about racing.

Take it easy out there. I find crashing is a lot easier when youre showing off.

This was was AWESOME..... the weather was not very much fun to deal with. The nutshell of it was cold and VERY windy right up until the start then; rain for the duration of the race. It made the grip incredible - the XR650R was like a rocketship out there!! I got her up to at least 90 a few times, lots of fast sections and lots of passing for the beast. The best feeling is watching the other bikes struggle in the sand and flying past!!

No crashes and I did very very well (for me) I got through at least two row that were in front of me. Im starting to figure things out a bit here.

(John) One of the Lost Coyotes got first - in class I think but he may have done 1st overall, not sure yet.

More later!
