Gary_A - KTM 300
alphaBETAdog - Beta 450
250L guy - Honda 250L
n_i_c_k - Honda 450X

The gang was itching to get going!

250L guy was OK!

Trail break.



Turns out that viper bought this 530 from Steve Hatch, who bought it from Gary!! There was a tearful reunion.

viper was having a good time!



Gary was giving viper a hand with his suspension setup.



At the end/start of the ribbon trail. The guys that rode in decided to take the short way out and head for ZEN!! The guys that trailered in made a fast paced return to trucks and headed for ZEN.



The mayhem at ZEN can be found here...

Terry, I had a great time! Thank you for organizing and leading this!

Gary, Thank you for the expert suspension tuning! The bike was much better on the return leg. I talked to Alan Stillwell and he confirmed everything you did.

To the rest, thanks for the patience and advice as I work to shake the rust off after many years away from single track.

Cheers,
Tom
