I can't go on Mondays, but I might consider going another time. If you go, I'd love to get a Ride Report on the roads you have done.

Yesterdays event

A while back several talking started about going to Cornerspin for some additional training, this was spurred on after talking to H14 and the guys about how much it had improved their riding skills. So we started making plans but we were missing one key thing......Gastone. So for you guys who don't know Gastone, "Garrett" he regularly drags his Jesse cases on his GS, leaves us behind heading up and down the mountain asphalt, and rides Dunkle Hollow in the rain on worn out Tourances and makes it look easy. So he and his wife Meghan recently had a new addition to the family so we knew money for fun wouldn't be easily accessible, so with Meghan's permission, Macorell24 "Matt" (long time friend and cohort), decided that it would be great to have the guy who doesn't need training go as well. He contacted myself and several others about his idea to take Garrett to Cornerspin with us. So the wheels were in motion and yesterday at the Dockside restaurant in Colonial Beach we presented Garrett, now known as Mr. Sensitive, with a certificate to attend Cornerspin with us in November. I think he is going to have a great time and thanks Meghan for supporting us on the effort!!!!

I was hoping you'd post those pictures.

Big thanks to everyone who was involved and participated. You made this happen as much as I did.

Now let's ride!

Lies, lies.... and a scratched cornea to boot. Friggin' thing acts up at the most inopportune moments.

I just want to say thank you to everyone involved.

I was over in the GPX tracks section, and found these. No idea on them, other than what is written.

So Dave every since you rode the DRZ and told me you thought the clutch was really stiff, which I agreed with, it has bothered me. So today while prepping the bike for Kevin's I decided to replace the cable...quite a difference! The old one was really stiff even after removing it with visible dirt and a thick grease, probably dirt and cable lube, looking substance. All is well and I even got the GPS wired and SPOT mounted...just about done. We even got Dana's DR200 all prepped and ready. So our plan is to do some of the tougher stuff and stay off the roads as much as possible especially since she now has a lighter bike with some real ground clearance.
