Spot puts you in dahlgren. Raining hard in the burg. Ride hard, ride fast. Sorry I'm missing this one. Hopefully June I can make it.

Dynamick, got your rear brake pads replaced last night. Just wanted you to know I am keeping her in tip top shape.

True That. I was tracking his SPOT and was thinking the same thing as Garrett. I came from that direction when returning from Radford VA. In this weather it is better by truck.

Bluhduh Another Banner Dorito Track

I thought I had a nice short track today. I knew we were going to be leaving about noon, so wanted to be back at the cabins before dusk. Well, almost had it. 1830 back to the cabins, 5.5 hrs and 140 miles. I had flash back that this was going to be another 6 days on first track nightmare

Couldn't ask for better weather. Partly sunny, the rain had dropped all the dust down and was finished before we got riders up at 1300. However, EOD3MC and Blaster have some nice rocks pelts from roosting each other all.day.long. Children!

Feeling cheeky, EOD3MC was spying a hill climb. Sure enough he finds himself one. Up he goes. Wheelie, and down he goes. Seems WV is a bit steeper and softer than his Californication training.

Blaster, aka the gas tanker, found his calling today. Seems EOD3MC doesn't have a respectable reserve on his new tank. Furthermore, I would have thought the Katoom rider would know better than to drive past the only gas station we pass all day. So, about 17 miles from the cottages he's flat out done. Try the trick of laying it down to swish it over the pump lobe. No luck.

Never fear, we have a 1 liter water bottle and Blaster has over 1 gallon left He pops off the petcock hose and fills her up.

Gas tally for the day:
DR200 uses 2 gallons (for the win!)
DRZ 3.7 gallons.

Had a hoot today on Sugar Tree with my new CornerSpin talents. It's true, never lost the front end while I was on the throttle.

Tomorrow, is the main event and our date with Union Springs!

Isn't Sugar Tree a blast?

Wish I were riding tomorrow but I'll be cutting firewood instead.
You all will be fine on Union tomorrow but just in case you know where to find me.

We enjoyed the rather "odoriferous" aroma as we drove through Hinton. 'Tis Cow crap spreading season! Good thing it stopped raining, otherwise "plan b" was to cower in your garage

Garret, we'll get you out here again this season. One way or another...

So I brought the KTM and DR over to Dan for some TLC and he tells me they don't make D606s for my KTM. Any suggestions on a 80/20 tire? I wonder of they make TKCs to fit?
