It looks like we have over twenty riders, representing 6 states and 4 bike manufactures coming in June for the ride.

Can't wait to meet everyone and ride :)

OK,

If some of you southern guys want to get together and make the trip, I could be available with my custom van and 20ft Race trailer. I can comfortabily carry 5 bikes and riders. If everybody pitched in for gas and driving it could be a pretty good trip.

I live in the Atlanta Area.

Bonzai :)

Thanks for offering your ride Bill.

I'd love for all, of y'all, to come on up. Bill's right, it would be a hell of a road trip and the wives would be hard to deny their man on Fathers day weekend.

"Oh come on honey, let go ride with my buddies" :) It's all I want for Father day. It can even be part of my birthday present :D

Bill,
I am down to one vehicle out of three.

The f-ing Dodge Grand Caravan has it's CONTINUING tranny problems (won't shift out of 1st) and my little Mitsu Eclipse was shaking so bad this morning, I had to take my 750 Nighthawk into work today.

I have Thursday off (05/30) then start 12 hr midshifts as of Friday night. I am off on vaca as of next Wednesday, 06/05, but unless I get one of these vehicles up, I WILL NOT have a way to get to PA...

The Eclipse FEELS like it jumped a tooth on the timing gear BUT due to the zero clearance btwn the valve and piston crown, this (cannot?) be the case.

I will have it up on ramps Thursday morning, [MAJOR party tonight to signify the completion of my plant's refueling outage may slow my ascension out of bed in the morning :) )].

I'll figure it out...

If any of you guys have some 2 strokes, 125 / 250, BRING 'EM!!

There JUST maybe a change of attitudes against the 2-strokes at RC, once the guys throw a leg over them, and give them a spin around the SX track!!!

Fred,

June 14/15.

If you want to YZ time your bike. Bring it over to the house on Thursday night. It'll take us about an hour. If you want, we could even change the jetting to a more aggresive YZ style. I could set you up with an EKP needle or you could order jets from Sudco and we could EMM needle the bike.

We did mine last year and Kevin rebuilt his bike at least once a day and once at night.

check your PM.

Bill

Hey Levy-

Hope you can make both the SE PA and Wayne National Forest rides, looking forward to meeting you. Yep, we can YZ time your bike in less than an hour even with jetting. I guess we know who's buying the beer now, hehe!

This time out I'm "really" going to take some pictures to post on TT. I was too busy test riding everyone else's bike last time! Look out, Mike68!
