I dont think they actually use any of the jumps but they do run through it as I remember. As far as practice on Sat, Im not sure. But Id almost be interested to go down Sat and camp. Beats drivin for two hours at 6 in the AM

Bones, look for the dust out front. Then look a few miles back, that'll be me. Trying to catch Jonah.... :thumbsup:

No one is up for the A$$ Beater Scramble Horn?? Not really suprised. Its funny, the first time I raced it was seven years ago. It was actually my first "official" race. I rode the sportsman class (2 laps 20 mi total) and with a 10th of 47 riders I did well but vowed to NEVER do it again. Five years later, to the day (Last spring) I got talked into racing it again. Only this time I signed up for expert class. (6 laps 60 mi total) I did well and place 2nd of 7 riders. BUT, after the 2nd lap and the checker said, doing good only 4 more to go. I wanted to die right there.... :thumbsup:

Uhg, why am I going you might ask? Because BrandonW is going to be there and I dont want to hear any of his verbal abuse for not showing up!! Good enough reason? I think so.

I've done this event probably a dozen times.....when I was younger and my legs could handle 60 miles of whoops. The last time I did it was 2001 and crashed really bad--twice. Fortunately I didn't get hurt, but took that as a sign I needed to find some other kind of racing.

There were some really cool parts of the course that we used to ride (before the fire) and back when we could ride the jumps on the mx track. Other than the whoops, the race is pretty easy (technically speaking) and good for young, new racers to give racing a try.

      Hi, all. DRZ-400S rider from Kodiak, AK here. I'll have a week to burn next week and just purchased ferry tickets to/from Homer so I can do a solo trip on the mainland. I know it's a little late in the season, but does anyone have any suggestions for places I can go? 
      Some places I've looked at:  East End Road (Homer), Crown Point Mine Trail (Kenai Peninsula), Hatcher Pass, McCarthy/Kennicott Mine, Chicken, Denali Hwy, etc.
      I know it's a little late in the season, so some of these areas may not work (McCarthy/Kennicott comes to mind).  It will be my first time riding a motorcycle on mainland Alaska since 1999-2000.  Any suggestions/advice are greatly appreciated!

      Anyone know of any good shops that offer vapor blasting or water blasting or vapor honing. It's all the same thing just different names.
      Looking to have some aluminum street bike frames done so need a place that can handle larger pieces. 
      Some where close to Seattle east side Tacoma that you might recommend. 
      I found the motoshed in queen Anne but they can't do larger items.
