IN! (I hope.) I had a blast last year.

Probably going to bring my big bike this year, assuming it has decided it's done breaking down. I can do my best impression of a boat anchor.

I'm pulling the travel trailer down and crashing Capt Rick and Selzanog's secluded little love nest out by the lake!

I only have one bike that can do any offroad.... the TR650.
It's not going to be in the same league as the TE 310 - it probably weighs what two 310's do

Should be interesting - I should have some idea what it's like offroad by then.
So far it's untested on anything like Burma Rd, but I expect it will just mean I won't chase Shearboy across the open desert like last year.
It will get a serious front tire in the next few days though.

Will be fun in the Box, up Chloride, etc

That 650 Husky sure is a good looking bike

You are one of the few who know how demanding that ride route is and the pace needed to get it done--if I recall two flats stopped us from completing the full loop a couple of years ago

If I do it--maybe 3-4 is as many as I would want--at least in a group I was in-- I'll let you know.

Event registration information has been updated on the opening post of the ride thread, with a link to the NMOHVA website for payment!

Here's the link:
http://nmohva.wildapricot.org/Defaul...pageId=1542797



I was able to talk to the owner of La Cocina restaurant (Monty), and we worked out an arrangement for the Saturday night dinner. All riders who sign up and pay the registration fee for this event will receive a $15 "La Cocina Bucks" certificate which can be redeemed for any menu items, excluding alcohol (for liability reasons, you will have to pay for your adult beverages separately).

We'll have our choice of using the banquet room or the patio for our group on Saturday night:
