What he said. I don't have enough time while I'm home to get out to
Idaho and ride. I'm bummed about it. If I cancelled meeting the
family and spending time with the kids at the beach, I have the time.
I'm already squeezing it pretty tight by doing two days in NC. When I
suggested I may try to do Friday, three females threatened to do me
bodily harm. Ya'll know how bad that could be.

I did it. However, it was due to a bike problem. Somehow, my top
shock bolt came loose and worked it's way out. Ugh. I have not
removed the shock in over a year. I should have taken the old bike as
well, but didn't.

OK, your point is well-taken. I'm going to go ride early tomorrow. I
topped off my rear brake, changed my air filter and changed my gearbox
I retract my earlier statement about UFO making the GG plastic.
Extreme Makeover GasGas Edition starts tomorrow night.

I have to agree. (Hot!)
I may like Orange after all.
I have been "under the weather" for a couple of weeks, so my pre-Spodely
Fest conditioning has been to sit on the couch and play CoD Modern Warefare
I'll be back out in the woods tomorrow, pulling arrows.
(I spent the day yesterday, chasing a CRF 70 mounted 10 year old and a CRF50
mounted 4 year old, around a 1.2 acre lot at my daughter's house near LR. It
was a blast, except for the 4 year old cutting the course. Some kids are
born hare scramblers. Their mom just called me to say that the yellow
meated water melon was fantastic, and that the 4 year old cried this morning
when they made her get off the CRF50 to come in and eat breakfast.)
Deb and I will be there at BMMP (and at Idaho). RahRah is traveling with
us. (supposedly to both places.) (MXPhlipper is starting to crawfish on
Idaho. I'm going to have to work on that.)
Good Riding to All Ya'll on this, America's Birthday!
