I'm heading out to Gingerman to ride the sv a last time (before it sells) tomorrow afternoon and will probably ride dirt Sat. in Mi or Indiana. Any suggestions where I can ride in Ind. without going too far out of my way? The single track stuff in Mi is another 1-2 hrs further north minimum... Otherwise I'll come back late tomorrow night and would be up for a ride somewhere Sunday. Need to learn the yz250 on tight single track in prep. for the next enduro race...

Byron has open practice this weekend. It is bikes only because they are preparing for the Loretta Lynn Regionals next week.

I'm up for either day. Let me know what everyone is doing.

Take care and ride safe,

Not going to Gingerman. Between fighting a flue most of the week and work, never got SV prepped. Looks like it might sell tomorrow so I'll prep it for that. Up for a ride tomorrow or Sunday. My area sucks - I'm over 2 hrs away from any decent (legal) riding area...

Since the 05crf250r hasn't sold, I'm going to put it up on Ebay. Need to get rid of @ least two bikes so I can turn around in my garage - I'm a bad hoarder!!!

I just received a text from Byron, they have closed the track for today. They were hit by a big rain storm a little while ago. I am up for either day this weekend. Byron is my normal place to go but, it may be very crowded this weekend. Next weekend they have the Loretta Regionals and my guess is there will be a lot of riders getting a feel for the track this weekend. That being said, I will go if others are going there. Otherwise, FVOR or KI? Let me know.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian

It looks like Sunday is going to be the best weather day. What are you guys thinking? I'm leaning towards FVOR.

Had fun at FVOR with Steve (Fastsv650) today. He had to wait for me a few times in the woods as I had trouble getting up the slippery hills. Overall, it was a blast.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian
