couple nights at cromag = fun

I'd happily lend you a bike. Right now it would be the KLR, though. My 640e is still in pieces (though I just got the new parts to reassemble). Unfortunatley, I just noticed the fork seals are leaking on the KTM, too, and I'm not so sure I can remedy that before CroMag. KLR comes with your choice of Heidenau K60s or full knobbies. KTM has an option of knobbies or knobbiers. (T63 vs. 606)

Logistics of the airport pickup would need to be sorted out, and I'd have to up my CroMag reservation to trailer from bike-only.

Let me know if you don't get a better offer and this is appealing to you. Burlington would be the closest airport to the event itself, but if someone from, say, Hartford were already planning on coming up on Friday . . . well the hypothetical solutions are endless.

It would be fantastic to have you among us at the firepit and on the ride(s).

Or another idea, ship your stuff to me and I will bring it along so it is there for you. Then you can fly direct to the airport where the bike will be waiting instead of going back to the rock. Anyway you can come in Wednesday night at all? I could grab you at BOS or MHT and bring you to VT.

Since I'm going little bike (+trials bike) this year, I'm trailering and heading up thursday evening. MHT is only a few miles outta my way.
I'm leaving sunday morning, though. Need to be back before the afternoon.

Man this sounds like fun!
I grew up in Waterbury Center and lived in Warren till I was 23 then moved out west (17 years ago).
Remember all the great riding we had as teenagers right out of my parents backyard on the VAST trails and single track we had built.
Been wanting to bring my girlfriend back there. There's been discussion of a X/C trip on our bikes.
We might have to start planning for next years event!
Have a great time in the crisp September air!

Ok, options are coming in....as for shipping my gear I think it will still be easier fly home first. I will look into changing the date of my ticket but I'm guessing it will be a lot of $$ to do that as it's a couple of airlines, plus work may not let me get out any sooner either; I'll check into it.. Obviously closer to an airport is better?

Flights offer me to Manchester or Burlington by 3pm or Boston by 1:30 pm on the 20th?

We will make it work out. Whatever you have to do.

I went to 08, and '10 but this time of year is crazy busy for me so I didn't think I could go at all. Then I noticed - starts on Thursday! Even if I come up that day and leave Friday afternoon (most probable), I think I need to attend.

Does this mean you are in or thinking about being in? I'm in a state of confusion over this.

I haven't signed up yet, It would be $50 to stay the one night.

Nope, just clarify when you sign up when you are staying. I will take care of it on this end in my paperwork. So, one night use Saturday in the drop down, two Friday and three Thursday.

Also for clarification, if you are bringing a pillion, choose the increment that is $10 less than the full fee. And let me know in the notes of your paypal that that is what it is for please.

Also, please check the OP for your status. Some still need to pay and some still owe some information.

Thanks for the cooperation. Paypal is best and you can use your credit card, you do not have to give them your bank account access.
