No worries....

It's not gnarly at all. The gnarly one was last year, and that didn't go over real well with some folks. This year will be a nice relaxing ride on some good asphalt, with as many gravel roads thrown in as we can find, with the bulk of those coming towards the 3/4 point in the ride. IMO, ride the super ten, the x challenge would be overkill for this event, and besides, I really want to see one of those tenere's in action.

Dave,

Bring both. A couple of straps and that X-Challenge should stay put.

I hope that you can make it too. I'll still never get your name right, but at least Skyclad would have another big ktm to ride with if you both show up. BTW, they do sell gas at the start at Turkey Hill you know.
