MN MX April 13 - which track are you riding???

04/13/08 MIDWAY KELLOGG

04/13/08 STRAIGHT ARROWS GRANTSBURG

Tentatively, weather permitting, I will be @ Grantsburg. As much as I enjoy Kellogg, it is a LONG drive for me.

The long drive there IS bad enough, the VERY LONG drive home is worse. Back in my hey-day of 1980 - 1983, I remember getting home at 10pm...!!!

So Grantsburg, with it's bottomless sand and whoops, is it for me !!! :thumbsup:

not riding but ill be at kellogg

All depends on the weather. If Don's track is dry enough, I'd like to head down there for a few hours to get the bike tested and tuned. I'm not quite ready to race yet (haven't been on the bike since last fall!)

I know I NEED TO RIDE!!!!! I havent been to grantsburg in a few years but I remember it not being very fun. are these races or practices?

D23 races Mike

what about willow river trails

Practice on Saturday, race is on Sunday.

Whooped out sand tracks have never been on my "Well, it's kind of an OK track..." but they are a VERY GOOD workout, no doubt about that. You never know, sand may be the niche (you) have been looking for !

my motor is out of the frame and at the shop, figuring out what went kablooey in the bottom end. I know this weekend isn't going to happen, but I'm really hoping to be done before the next weekend.

My motor is out of the frame too! And my motor is in about 200 pieces on my computer desk, and my frame is in a few pieces, subframe on the end of my bed, forks on the side of my bed, swingarm over by my couch... haha

It should be ready by saturday/sunday though, parts get here friday morning...

Taking this weekend off of racing either way, just too far for me to drive!

Next weekend I have drill, won't make that race either!

Then the week after that (April 26/27) I will be at Staples hopefully ready to contend for the win in 250 and 14-24!! Hope to see some of you guys there too!

Count me in as far as riding Don's track (if I'm allowed). I haven't been on my bike since my last fall (I mean fall) either!

Matt, do you have the "secret member whistle ring of power"...???

Only us members have one.

And, the club initiation can be pretty rough AND humiliating...! :thumbsup:

I DON'T have the whistle and I'm a little scared now - I've heard stories about mx initiations that take place on farms!

I'm hoping the weather holds out:

My bike is still on the trailer from lasts weeks (non) race for me.

I will wait and see.

Bottom line, I too need practice time to check my suspension, if nothing else.

Maybe it will be a Thumpertalk Ride real soon at Don's, if the opportunity arises...
