Pirate Count Down

We are about a week away from some serious Dragon action--who's ready? Who needs help with their bike? Who wants to ride? I hear SpeedyC, and Manimal are planning to make this event--how about you?

Good gawd - 165 miles?!? Fabrication of a sheepskin seatcover definitely in order. I think the most I've ever done (on an RS50) in one sitting is about 40-50 miles.

Must be crazy how far you guys can go riding! I decided to look at google maps, think a trip across Death Valley would be fun!!

I flew through LA a few months ago, was amazed flying on to Toronto all of the change in scenery. I have a friend in San Diego who I might at some point go see, may have to check out the BAT's while over!!

Bat Hat Santa Cruz Scofflaws

Yeah we wont quite make it to SC on this ride, although we have in the past like on the Bats Insanely Great Big Basin Adventure. So at 165 miles this is one of the easier south bay rides. The north bay rides tend to be around 100 miles or so--40 miles wouldn't even be enough to get our tires warmed up. :>








Funny thing about Santa Cruz, while it is the mecca of skate boards it is actually illegal to skate in most places in SC! Yup if you skate you are an outlaw.
