Or anybody else up in the North-East bay? My friend with his M1 might be comin with me, and I'm going to be headin up north on Monday possibly. We might stop on the way and do some riding.

What's the best place out there? I heard of a DS track (if it's disclosed, please PM me). Maybe Mount Diablo? Not quite sure what we have on our minds yet.

Slug, are you down to come out? Don't know if you have next week off or not.

Slug, I'm goin to wait until my friend can get out to run off to Pacifica. We'll have a nice little group goin then.

Practice I'm not sure about.. I think I'll just go to race for fun. Don't have money to make two trips or just hang out there.. I guess we'll see what happens. You can let me know how the course is :D

As fer the rig.. it's confidential. Let me just say that I'll have no excuse for being a pansy anymore :rolleyes: <sigh>

Yo guys, I'm very down to ride next week. Possibly Wed or Fri. Those are pretty much the times off I have. I know of three ds tracks up around where I am. One I'm pretty sure is destroyed, another is rideable but short and in pretty bad shape, the last is Sand Hill in Brentwood. Other than that, I'd love to show you guys around Briones. It's a long uphill walk, but the dh is very worth it, if not Berkeley always works. Ask Slug on how he liked it. Ummm, I don't know too much on Diablo but if anyone would be down I'm sure we could ride the firetrails that I do know about from the top to the bottom. Nothing really technical but fast fo sho. If I ever get another bike off the ground or fix my pipeline up enough I'd be very down to show all of you areound Las Trampas which has awesome riding all over. But yea, lets ride guys.

I'm not sure slug. This time I'm going to take my time, everything has to be precise. No more rushing into projects anymore.

If I'm ready, I'll give you a call. Probably going to be a light run at waterdog or something. Sandhill sounds fun. I'll have to check with my friend on that.

Sandhill aint exactly the best place for dh pigs tho. If anyones got a ds bike, or a spare for me it'd be good times. Sirachi, what bike u building up?? If you want a nice relaxing dh day we could just do one or two big shuttle runs on Diablo. There aren't any jumps or drops that I know of, just nice fast hills to ride down which'll let you get used to how your rig feels at speed and in the corners.
