Help! Paul and I just met a new friend. Unfortunately his 500 Shadow is really sick and needs a ride back to Austin/San Antonio area.

Anyone have trailer space for his bike? And maybe even room for him going back with you?

I can easily carry someone back to Austin but I am not going home until Monday. I would love the company but understand that not everyone is off work next week.

I'm planning on doing the Challenge on Friday on my new to me KTM 950 Super Enduro. I've found one person on another forum to ride with, is anyone else looking to form a small group?

Challenge Riders,

Please note that you will need a permit for riding in Big Bend National Park during the challenge event. Make sure you get your permit before beginning the challenge ride.

Probably only an issue if you want to start riding before your chosen entrance gate is manned...then you'd have to wait at the gate till someone could sell you a pass.

I thought the permits were bought from at the entrance gate? I don't see the need to get the permit early.

Permits are sold at the 2 entrance stations and at the Panther Junction visitors center. A permit is good for 7 days. Challenge riders won't be passing an entrance gate until the end of the course (I.e. if you don't have a permit before the challenge begins you will have to take the time to specifically ride over to the entrance station, wait there until you can buy a permit, and then ride back to the start of the course). The challenge will be challenging - I recommend that everyone give themselves every advantage and get a permit before Friday morning.

Another weather report, 11:00 pm Tuesday, a slight breeze to none, after frontal passage with wind and dirt storm it was a rough ride in a pop up camper but around 1:00 pm the winds became breezy and full sun, how things can change in a few hours, had a great ride after a late start, rode out north of Terlingua ghost town. Tomorrow Glen Springs road and Black Gap.
