Re: Emma Long ride....

Wish I could but I won't be ready with the new to me Husky. I am planning on heading to Hidden Falls on Sunday for a shakedown ride before Big Bend.

At Emma long? It can be intimidating for new riders with the ledges and the stairs steps - there are some pretty tricky spots.
Overall it's not too bad though.
If I had to teach somebody to ride, I would pick some place else.

I would recommend going out with someone who knows the main loop. Most likely you would drop the bike once or twice, stall out a few times, etc.

I was intimidated the first time I went out but I just kept going out by myself and now I'm comfortable out there but I still have sections that I ride like a total newbie hack.

We are headed to CTOR tomorrow. Most will be there by 8 am . You should try it sometime. I can give you a tour.

$20 cash . Look up CTOR on Google and it should show up.

I might do Emma on Sunday if I don't end up camping at CTOR Saturday night.

Hey Vinny & Brian nice meeting you guys yesterday. Next time your group is going to have a KTM bonfire let me know in advance so I can bring marshmellows.

Re: Emma Long ride....

If were going to sacrifice a bike I vote for that four stroke Kawi from the 90's. It's prime for a bonfire. That guy said he's getting something like an 02' KTM 200. He seems to have a thing for old cheap bikes. Have you seen the other 70's bike he has? It's quite the Frankenbike.

My buddies told me don't go older then 08' and that was what I ended up with for my first bike. I'm at about the year mark for being on two wheels. Lots of fun.

Re: Emma Long ride....

Erzberg, or Emma tomorrow?

...who am I kidding. Emma, of course. But with the heat one lap will probably be my limit.
