Great day at Gopher Dunes with the kids

Recommended Posts

Went to Gopher dunes on sunday with the kids and few friends. the weather was great and alot of people out riding. Frank the owner is a great guy and makes sure you are having a good time. it was our secound time there but first time for the kids. The peewee track is for under 80cc bikes but because the boys where still learning and had never been on a track before Frank let them go and try it out. here is a few pics of our day.

Loading up

The yz 125 is a 86, it was stored and didn't run for 13 years. The owner and I rebuilt it and he has more time it now then when he got it years ago as a kid.

Cool day Sluggo!

We're racing at GD on Monday, personally, I don't like the track that much - haven't seen the changes they've made but to me it wouldn't matter, it's the dirt I don't like, only good thing about it is if you get tossed it's like landing on a bed!

Hopefully my kid will keep up his momentum from Motopark this weekend although he's one of the many walking wounded right now - seems nobody gets out of Motopark unscathed!!!!

Yes it was sunday, I like the changes as well even though I still suck on the track no matter what they do to it. There was a young hottie there sunday on a yz 125 and she kicked our butts out there.

Hey Matt are you talking the holiday monday? I need to get out there on a race day and watch. Anyone that hasn't been there should go check it out for a day. The sand is hard to ride in and some don't like it. I didn't like it the first time but after a couple times it does get better. If nothing else you can ride the trails which are cool and the owners are great to talk to.

cr85_supermini03 I will drop you a pm a few days before we are planning on heading out.
