Tell Ryan congrats. I am out of town 8/7 - 8/10. Let's see if we can get a group for the Byron GP on 8/23. I will sign up in the young guys group so we can ride together.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian

Sorry can't do Saturday Brian. I'll be at FVOR tomorrow if anyone wants to meet up. Sounds like D is trying to make it as well.

No problem. I will be out there with FastSV around 10am. I have a black Subaru with an open trailer and a Suzuki RM with the #276.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian

Had fun at FVOR yesterday with FastSV650 and Daddy-O. I had a little get off at the top of one of hills. Front tire hit a hole at the top resulting in a wheelie followed by the rear tire hitting the the hole and throwing the bike to the left. There was a trail going down on the left but I grabbed a handful of throttle and headed for the trees. I think Lynyrd Skynyrd said it best; whiskey throttle, brand new bike, oak tree you're in my way.

All's good but a few scratches and sore hip muscles. The funny part is, Fastsv650 thought I was heading to the left on purpose. If I hadn't crashed, I would have said that was the plan.

Looking to ride the Byron GP. Let's get a group.

Take care and ride safe
Brian

yeah it was fun. I was riding the creek bed - rock garden - good enduro training but then got stuck a good 20 min at the bottom. had to lay the bike over, drag it to harder mud then rev. it out of there.

So I'm following Brilama up this fairly steep hill, he wheelies @ the top of it, turns mid-air and comes down faster than he went up down a trail to my left. Thought the wheelie turn was pretty cool until that tree jumped in front of him...lol.
