We will be having the second annual ThumperTalk ride in SE Pennsylvania. Last year we had about 8 guys from 3 states and hope to see more of you here, this year.

This is not a big event with many goings on (we're actually going to do that next year) it's just a couple of days riding with old and new ThumperTalk friends and a couple of nights of bench racing, bike wrenching and beer drinking.

We'll be riding Rausch Creek and also have Tower City available.

There is a motel very near my house (1 mile) Budget Host Inn 717-755-1068. They have rooms at reasonable rates ($40-55) and there is fast food, Denny's and fuel (94 octane) within walking distance.

If you'd like more info email me at

I'll definitely be there that weekend. Looking forward to a fun weekend of riding! Thanks for hosting the event, Bill.

Any other East Coasters should try to attend, especially if you've never been to Rausch Creek before. We had a blast last year both on the track, trail, and at Bill's house.

Unless a nasty act of by God/Satan/Wife/Employer...I'll be there.

Be prepared, I have had ZERO time on the bike this year(read as TOTALLY out of shape).

I am on 12 hour days/ 7 days a week until early June... :)

Hey Bill-

Yep, I'll probably buzz into town Thursday afternoon. I'm going to *try* to drive to Virginia and work for a couple of days in our office there since it's so close, and I can write off the mileage :) :D to boot.

Evil- (funny calling someone that)- Sure I ride Wayne about 5-6 times a year. Mostly the Athens district stuff, haven't been down to Ironton yet. I recently hooked up with Sean McCutheon on this site also in Columbus-he knows a great group of guys I've been riding with lately. All my usual buds are either injured, changed strictly to MX, or just had kids and are out of the scene for awhile. We should all definitely hook up. I know my May is kinda shot with other stuff...too bad.

There's not a lot of riding in Columbus except a couple of MX tracks; S and E Oh is where all the good riding is. It's mostly flat here-what's the fun of that?
Send me an email sometime at

BOOYAA, looking forward to the SE PA ride!
