T I can head out early on Saturday and ride at Flyin Brians. I'm off of work because of my buddies wedding but the reception isn't until 4 some time.

The same on Sunday you let me know either or both days. I'm in!

Its sumo freindly, there are 3 tracks there, #1 being the tt-flat track, # 2 the mx track which is really fun, # 3 the begginer flat course lots of high banked rolling smooth berms. heres a video link to Flyin brians the tt track my wife took of me its only showing a few corners. but the main straight is wide open 5th gear. $ 25 bucks to ride and sign a waiver, If you have an insert try to run it too keep the noise down.

Hmmm, I may be down for that. I've never ridden offroad before. lol. I need to learn!!

All I have is my Thor leather suit, MX boots, and RR helmet. Is that acceptable? Do I need a chest protector or anything????

You and me are in the same boat. This will be my first time on the dirt.

I have the dirt wheels and brakes, but I wanna have an idea if we are heading out there or not, I gotta change my forks and triple trees to use the dirt stuff.

How come you have to change the front end, cant you just switch your rotor from the sumo wheels to the dirt wheels?

I swapped the forks to the 50mm with radial brakes.

As much as I would love to go, 70 miles is a little too far. Especially if it's going to be wet.

Dirt wheels are on. I didn't change the forks out since we aren't gonna be in any trails or anything. This fall I'll swap the stuff over so I can have the smaller disk and brake.
