Have to work Wed or I would. Slight possibility Thur for an early ride. Most likely I'll ride Sunday and check out Rocky Glen for the first time since FVOR is closed for a GP.

Most of the Crust comes off when his old lady thorws him a bar of soap and old towel and makes him stand in the back yard and get the "Mr Wolfe Shower"

Shouldah used Lava Soap

So 2weel? how was it?

A buyer is coming over to look @ the CRF250r this afternoon. So I may be down to 4 bikes soon....yay! Will be able to fix the sailboat and maybe get a better trailer so I don't have to swap tongue/bunks/rollers for shorter tongue and rails.

perfect! Rode form 2:30 -6:00
Nobody was there. Never passed another bike on the trails and never more than a couple of bikes on the track which was in great shape. Most of the time there was nobody else on the track. Trails were in great condition too. Wardy is starting to set up for the GP on Sunday. Good luck with the stuff down by the track! The logs, tires etc - none of my business!!!
