HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

We ended up there later,
There was only one guy there with his kid riding around and he left after about an hour.

I had the 250 with the slicks but it looked like there were too many mud spots so I put it back in the trailer and we stuck with the mini's with Mud tires.
while the place is small, I like the flat track part of it a bunch,
Also there are a couple of berms that you can really catapult out of
We rode until we were too pooped out to ride any more.

I hope more places like this pop up.

Did you go on the MX track at all? It was pretty muddy in some sections. What time did you end up getting out there.

yeah we did whatever we could find. mx track the front track, through the little woods trail, around the back sort of by the corn fields

What were those big piles of Wood in the Metal X frames ?

I'm thinking it was around 2:00 or so when we got there and about 6:30 when we left.

At first i was driving around the big puddles, then after awhile I looked at my gear and decided wtf and just went through most of them.

those 100's can take a beating

aside from the mosquitoes at the end of the day we had a good time.

Another noise complaint, sheesh.

That's the last straw, I just ordered a FMF Q4 Ti can for the Orange Beast.

I know, this whole sound thing sucks. I also heard that the mega bomb quiets another 1-1.5 db's as well.

yep. I've already got a Ti powerbomb header, which is like a smaller megabomb and they claim it does reduce noise somewhat. The Q has a max output of 96dB or less with regular headers. I'm thinking that should keep within regs just about anywhere.
