Re: 2018 DAMN Reunion May 19/20

I may even get to show up with a new bike (from THIS century)... if I can get it prepped in time with hand guards and at least a quick prior ride to work out any kinks. Stay tuned and brace yourself for a new level of hilarity !!!

Re: 2018 Beta & KTM AMA National Dual-Sport/Adventure Riding Series Schedules

What kind of rides are these? Is it a race, or a casual joy ride with some single track and dirt road thrown in?

Re: Delaware Enduro April 29th

Thanks for the insight, firebolter. Turned out that with the mileage resets, and battling the mud, I never was able to follow along with the map and just wandered around following the general mob. lol Here I am in Test 3 - which started out with serious demoralizing mud. And around 5:40 mark had sma...

Will there be an alternate C-loop past that tree? A couple of feet to either side would be great. :chicken:

Re: Joker's Western MD Camp and Ride 4/27-29 Rnd 2

OUCH. There is an unusual gutteral sound made as the bike Is coming down into the tree, right before impact. Like a "ba-loop". Its hard to identify and harder to type.

Re: Delaware Enduro April 29th

OK, here I am waddling through the first two sections. Crazy how much easier it appears looking back through the GoPro fish eye lens!!

Re: Delaware Enduro April 29th

Well..... I made it there. And ran through 4 tests before I was beat down and unable to continue. They had some rain the night (and week prior) so a notoriously swampy course was a muddy slimy mess. Not sure how to run the mud well. Tight serpentines through cambodian looking jungle, with a deep wet...
