I guess I have to go now!!! I may be there, but it'll be with a group of CRF450s and a 200XC-W.  Or I'll just sack up and dust you on a 1979 RM125.

Dude, You know how I feel about the 450's ><img src=" title="Angry" class="smiley">. Bring that RM out! I would love to see and maybe if its OK ride it. After my Indian 100 and Honda MT125 my first real MX bike was a 78 RM100. It had long stroke CR250 forks on it and some local pro also welded new shock mounts on the swing arm to jack up the back. Crude but was awesome back in the day. Damn, I'm as old as the dirt under my fender. Drink like a top pro though. Campsite 2 behind the lodge. I'm the old fat guy, easy to spot. ;D

The RM's not going to make it. I, however, might!

And I'll just have to make up for it with some good stories and bringing the beer.  It's good to know that you are an efficient alcohol filtration unit.

I can't. I've been having some big issues in my personal life lately.

Combined with the whole Army thing, I've been off two wheels for a few months.

We get in Friday around noon. Plan was to ride Saturday but may have to settle for a half day on Friday, Rain in the forecast. Sunday and Monday look good. Bikes are perfectly clean waiting to turn orange (not KTM, Georgia clay).

I hope that you have a great ride, and they prep those hard-as-rock tracks!

In all my years one of my most painful get offs was a quick wash out on the main track. Front end just went away braking hard for a wide turn. Some good guys in the campsite next to us loaded us up as I was done ( 2T or 4T MX guys are the best). We ride at a place in Ocala FL named Hardrock and trust me, that dirt is the same as D-town.MX 4 is like a rock but is perfect for some fun laps. GP is fast and also like rock. They do have some real nice dirt on the Bomber track though. Anyway I will raise a glass (more like a red party cup) for TSM while there and count the two strokes and trade stories. Just like last time.

117 miles to go tomorrow. Weather is now in our favor. Friday will be set up camp, tires & brakes, Gather Firewood, Bonfire, and of course hitting the D-town Tiki bar. Signing off until it's over. Too much fun to be tapping a keyboard.  Kids have glamis and 199 vid's on now. Love my little motor heads. Gotta go!

Results are in. It was cold and I am old. 46 degrees while cruising on the fast trails is a little chilly. We waited till afternoon to do the GP track (high speed). Campfire weather was perfect as was the drinkin weather. ;D. Saw the same amount of two strokes as last year. A friends kids blew up his KX250F (due to lack of maintenance). Of course I will report the damage and cost to rebuild. May not be too bad because it just lost power, compression and quit. No boom, no crunch, and still has a little compression. Funny thing was even though they were short one bike neither dad nor son took up an offer to use one of our 2 strokes. Anyway since they ran a bulldozer blade on all the hill climbs I decided to make my own runs between the trees. Damn there are a lot of hidden roots under the leaves. I hit a couple of trees right at the top and now have a permanent scar on the 125 fork leg. Did make it up two times though. My 14YO son spent the whole trip riding my 250. It wore him out and he had his own issue with a tree on the last day due to fatigue. Wants his 125 next time. I love it when a plan comes together. I will revive this thread as the spring break trip approaches.
