Hey man. I cant find the link right now, but just go to the District 36 website. There's a link on that page giving some details. Just show up. I think there's room.

I ride a 2000 650R. So what do you think of your big red pig? I love the bike, it's just a big heavy pig.

big red pig..... that's about it. I haven't rode it yet, a couple
guys from work are going to play hookey so we're going
wednesday to holister. I haven't owned a bike since around
1980.........The last rig was a 1984 Honda 200S atc. it was fun,
but not the same as a bike. alot of times came and went in
between "wanting" a bike enough to actually get out the wallet,
but I've been doing the same ole crap (working) on my days off
for like 10 years, I'm finally ready to play on my days off.......

enduros used to be alot of fun waaaay back when I was a kid.
poker runs we're alot of fun too.

we'll see how the BRP does tomorrow.

is rubicon motorcycle freindly at all-? since my jeep doesn't
run, maybe this summer I'll ride the honda up there to check
it out.

Yup. It was cancelled in June for some reason. But now it's been cancelled again! I guess there's some snow in a few spots. The CERA site says it would be a blast for the adults, but not for the kids, so they called it.

We're going anyway!! hehehe... The weather is going to be hellish, but WTF, we're all wife/kid-less this weekend and need to blow off some steam. I'm hoping for snow.

Wish you could make it Brad. I wanna ride with you dood. Anyone else can make it, we'll be up there tomorow morning. Look for my big silver CTD dually or me on my big red pig with a Clarke tank.

Sherpa, how was the ride? HOw did you like the BRP? Of course you know (or should by now) I say "big red pig" tounge in cheek. I love the machine. I've kicked mine up a notch or two with exhaust and jetting and she runs badass. Nothing like a grip full of master blaster. They also handle better than any bike that size has a right to. They're only real drawback is the weight. But that can be dealt with.

You gotta get it over in the desert. That's where they shine bright. Moonrocks is calling our name. Let's go!

And yes, the Con is totally doable but a menace to big bikes like ours but only in a few spots. Have a good skidplate and some spare chain links and chain tool aint a bad idea.

We rode up there last Sunday and there were patches of snow, but nothing on the trails.

Lop.

last wednesday's ride at HH was F U U U U U N--!

sheesh, I can acutally still ride decently too! no crashes..

but, I sure don't remember my ass hurtin' way back then

from riding.......... oh well. diet time.

since today is friday, and the kiddies are in school, and

the wifey works, (she was hoping I'd work on the house

today) sooo, I got it loaded and took off again for HH for

a couple-3 hours of seat time...... Man, I love this thing!

we did about 45 miles last wednesday in 4+hours,

today I did 35 miles in 2 hours alone....... Can't wait till

next saturday...there's 3 or more of us going again!

good luck on the xr... I lighter bike would be nice...
