Check the D37 Dual sport forum. They will have a lost and found and if they don't, ask. Post your ride reports!

Met a few Texans and generally had a great time despite the huge disappointment of not doing day 2.

I missed most of the second day on my first LAB2LV. Really rode safe the second trip. Can't wait to see the ride report just the same.

Great meeting you
Thanks. Good meeting you. I had a good week and I can't let a little set back the last day ruin it for me (as much as I'd like to let it...)

I just couldnt get the oring, spring and washer out of the fuel screw hole. I tried making tiny hools from safety pins, from red aerosol spray tubes but it just wouldnt come out. Oh well, next time.

"The plan" is to get my CRF450X refitted for BITD Parker 250 in early Jan. I've done some 100mi Dez racing in west Texas, but this will be a whole 'nother level. Me and two mates have a goal of Baja1K in 2022...

My wife will pit for me and is flying into Phoenix then renting a car to meet me. I will likely have room for another bike, gear and rider in my Sprinter. It's a very manageable 1-day drive.

Got some new parts ordered and should have here and on the bike within a week.
