Since I will not be doing that single track on the Wee, my vote is for burning down the highway on Day 1 and putting that single track at the end of Day 1. I can be relaxing in the motel with a beverage after a hot shower while you guys are single track riding instead of making a long day out of Day 2. Besides, the Wee would burn down the highway pretty comfortably the first day, so that part is a non-issue for me. I've done that many times.

If I could be sure it would take an hour or less, I think we should try to do it first thing on Day2. Big Bike guys could sleep in or have a liesurely breakfast... But its probably way longer than an hour so I think that is nixed.

Trying to do it at the end of Day 1 might be easiest logistically. Especially if we reserve our hotel rooms ahead of time that first night. Jed could be in charge of finding the best place for dinner and coordinating with any guys coming in late that day.


Ill let Pat and Brian weigh in on the subject.

I think adding it onto day 1 would be the way to go, assuming we get an early enough start and don't have any issues getting down there.

Can you confirm what day we're starting? I thought it was Tuesday, the 27th?

I also thought we were starting Day 1 on the 27th. Am I wrong? I am off on the 26th-30th, so no big deal if I am wrong.

A set of Shinko 804/805 big block tires ordered for the Wee today.

I'm off the 26th but I won't get home until 3am, that morning. I was planing to spend that day getting the DRz ready. I won't have a bunch of time before then...

Park it here at my place and I'll take care of it for you. Fresh blinker fluid, 100 psi in each tire, etc.

Have y'all picked a place to stay in Marion?
I know Hungry Mother S.P. has cabins that can accommodate many.

I was just going to pick one of the cheaper motels right in Marion. Thought it would be easier, closer to dinner/breakfast, and alcohol for whoever wants it.
