Alrighty John-

I was hoping for a Friday or Saturday but Sunday is still possible. Just got word that my BR riding buddy broke two vertebrae in his neck out there doing hill climbs a week ago :devil: . You have the DVD of helmet cam footage I made ya, it was Rob with the southern accent. He's expected to make a full recovery but it's going to be a long winter for him.

He has every intention to get back out there next spring though :thumbsup:

Knock on wood :awww:

Sorry to hear about your buddy, hope everything works out for him.

Let me know if you can make it on Sun. There are a group of us going. We will probably park out by the track as there are a couple kids going and its easier for them to get to the kiddy track.

sorry didnt say where i was riding at :thumbsup: i was at buffalo

anybody been to the cliffs yet?

Haven't been there, but to quote DeNiro, "I've heard things...."

lots of quads....not as good trail riding as Buff range....there is a river/stream that can make for some good cool-off water crossings and river riding...

if you go, take some pics and let us know how it goes...

I'm heading to BR Saturday, showing up at 9:30a. Chevy Z71 blk ext cab 426 #47 next to a ford F250 with a CRF450.

Seriously considering camping and attending Sunday as well. Does anybody know of a nice campground near Starved Rock?

Johnt3- what time will you guys be showing up on Sunday?

Jaggley, I was thinking of joining you at the cliffs, but I just looked at their web site. Looks like mostly quads, and you must have a 5'flag!@! to late for me to get a flag and figure out how to mount it.

Maybe next time.

Viner- Yeah there is a bad ass step up type jump half way up the hill. It's over a traverse path for trucks :devil: I wouldn't go in the quarry personally. BR's sand pit is dangerous enough with the iron rods sticking out. You know $20 a head per rider you would think they'd take care of that crap down there. A few sticks fo TNT or hire a welder for the day :thumbsup: Oh and there is a nice DEEP stream crossing around there as well.

Well I'm a local yokel out there and even we don't go out there that much. The quarry is cracking down and if you don't know your way out in about 4 different directions you might get in some trouble.

There is some good trails out that way, but I don't know if its worth the risk. :thumbsup: Your call.

johnt3 - I have e-mailed the cliffs about the flags for bikes and they replied that bikes DO NOT require them because they sit up higher than quads and don't have a good mounting place.

Kind of confusing because their web site states in one section that bikes need them,and then in another that they don't.
