I've only been over there for one meeting this year, we stopped in on the last winter night ride. While we were hanging out in front three other guys from the club show up on bikes coming from the opposite direction we did. I love those guys! You know who that is in their logo, right?

You can talk to John about your 390. He had one last year and I got a chance to ride it up in the rocks in Vt. It seemed to be pretty sorted out. Down on power compared to the 450, but I don't think you need that much for racing enduros. It's more forgiving, I was able to hold it wide open in the woods on several occasions. I can't really do that on the WR as much. Handling was great.

That being said, with the cost of the bike and all the modifications on it was probably a 13k bike. It was really only a hair better than the WR overall (IMO) and I've got about 1/2 that into mine. I'm not doing the whole NETRA circuit in the AA class so I'm good with what I've got. Those guys are serious, they really do need it all. You race the whole enduro schedule in the A class so I know you know what I mean.

Then I'll have to get the Husaberg killer out.

Is there anything more humiliating than being lapped on your new wonderbike by a 1984 XR200?

I hope Billy Burns or Ryan Bottesi show up so you can school them with the XR.

Me too! I know them from the club, I would be honored if they made a guest appearance at camp.

As for schooling, you'll have to do. I bet you can't keep up to the mighty XR on my track on anything you own.

We've got a nOOb in the chat thread who says he can keep up with any of us on anything.

I say we break him in right.
