No, seems to be fine. I am going to take off the flap and duct tape up my rear shock though.

Weather should be fine...(keep repeating this....)

You guys need to take a lot of pictures, with a ride report, for those of us that will be stuck at Cowboy's Stadium watching Ryan Villopoto win another round on his way to the championship.

So- you probably already discussed this last night, but can we camp at the Cowboy Camp?

For those of us WITHOUT fancy paddle tires... we might not enjoy riding open dunes that much. The Cowboy camp has relatively good access to the more vegetated sections. I think the North Campground would be a poor choice in this context. I'm presuming that we wanted to camp at one of these two aside from the main camp area on the highway.

NO.....details: ***NOTICE*** Due to winterization, the north campgrounds will close beginning December 3, 2012. The Buttercup and Cowboy Campgrounds will close December 15, 2012.


We are camping at the main gate entrance on the south end. The Highway is not that big of a deal. Proximity to vegetation should not be an issue unless you were looking for a suitable environment for spiders to live. Then you could utilize their webs to track our movements around the park.....

Also much closer to the convenience store when we run out of beer

Another bit of advice: take a few extra flags. a few of you will break one - count on it.

So how much pressure should a guy have in a sand tire? Seems like of the 3 that I have helped spooned on, the tires are stamped with 32PSI. Thoughts?

With a rimlock,on a 500, i always ran 20-22 psi. If the sand is wet=traction and fun!

Bikes are fun at little Sahara but it's nice if you have a quad along to take a break from the bike. The most fun I had on a bike up there was when it was raining.
20 psi is what I run in the tires. Someone said bring an extra flag, meaning an extra flag pole but you should also bring an extra flag. They get ripped off the pole very easily.
I use a 102" stainless steel whip C.B. antenna (Model: 21-903 $27.99) with spring (Model: 21-1118 $15.99) from Radio Shack. I've come off the bike and quad many times without a problem. It's gone between my legs, under my arm, never
permanently bending, breaking or hurting me like I've seen fiberglass flag poles do to people.
I bought a replacement brake light socket from O'Reilly's auto parts with an 1157 bulb in it and mounted it on the top of the whip. With the steel whip all I had to do was run a switched hot wire to the socket at the top of the whip. I wrapped the ground around the top of the whip so it grounds thru the whip. I had the bulb pointing up that morning when I put it together. That night when we went out in the dark, I thought if I turned the bulb over, pointing down, it would cast light on and around the quad. I wired it so both elements would light at the same time. It's unreal how much light it puts out. It's bright enough to read book. It makes about a 15 foot circle of light around the quad. When your out in the dunes waiting on someone they can find you instantly when you click on the light. It's cool when riding, the whip goes back and forth making some wicked shadows.

Talking Another fine executed TTPC event.

Thank you Newner for organizing such a magnificent event. Thank you _cy_ for delicious food and thank Y'All TTPC FFs for great company!
This dune riding thing is ridiculous!!! I'm afraid that our government will find out how silly amusing it is and they'll tax it or ban it.
Even my chapped lips and burned face are going to outweigh the amount of fun I had!
I'll work on the videos tonight. I can't wait to see your pix and vids.
Now, I'm gonna have a cold one and attend to my sore bones and muscles
Cheers!

I'll second that, Tom.

Fun as hell. Even on a DS bike with worn knobbies.

I think we need a dedicated report thread in Day Trippin' for the epicness of all our pics and videos.
