I updated the who's coming and the cabin availability lists on the first page. Just 7 days left to get your "In Fee" money if you want a custom shirt.

I'll take Oconeluftee

Laura0107 mentioned this event soon as she heard I'd traded the WeeStrom for a true adventure bike, and BigWrench mentioned it this morning while we were bouncing around Francis Marion National Forest. Count me in. Thankfully you have a cabin still available so I don't have to overload the whimpy (already cracked) subframe of my new (to me) Husky 610TE.
Name for the shirt "StolenFant"
Cabin wanted: Oconeluftee Fri & Sat nights

Someone tell me where and how to pay?

JoeWannaB, do I send you $$ via PayPal, or how?

Yeah! 20 by my count. We definitely need some group shots in front of the sign.

I've got one more coming - Tober, the guy Joe, Lostmarbles, and I rode with last year. He should be along shortly to post up that he's attending.

For anyone else who wants to ride and needs a bed, I've got two spots left.

Definitely gonna be a big group

That's great to hear! He's gonna love Friday's ride. We may have a preview of it this Saturday if the planets and stars can align for me.

Would love to check that out with you but will have to pass if it's this saturday. In the middle of cosmetic surgery on the pig:



And gotta try and get the little guy tagged:



plus that's the last weekend before school starts so gotta go do something with kids.

I do need to mount/break in the knobbies before the rally though

I like the shiny black. What fender is that? So you got tired of the teal?


Yours look better than mine does right now. Something seems to be missing...

I think you went a bit too far with your weight reduction effort

Mine is going Rustoleum Universal Satin Black. Cheap/easy to apply now and to touch up later. Fender is stock - got tired of it acting like a sail so I took a saw to it.

FYI: I had one of those tires on the front of my DRZ400 and hated it. Did not hold well in the dirt. Kept wanting to kick out on me. To show how bad I dislike it, I bought a different front tire and the front tire was not even worn out. And ones that know me, know how cheap I am, so to replace a tier be before it is worn out is something for me to do.

I bet even in its current state, it will still start faster that your DR 350.

I have a church commitment that Sunday but with this many folks coming, I'd be surprised if you couldn't find someone to ride with. In years past, a group of us would head over to Wayahutta on Sunday but I bet Dan wouldn't be too keen on one of his rentals running over there.

What are you renting for her? WR250?
