Below is the flyer/registration for the 2016 East Texas Tiddler Endurance Run - also attached as a .jpeg and a .pdf for printing. Please let me know if it doesn't work.

This year's format will the similar to last year with various classes allotted appropriate time windows to complete each leg. Generally speaking, in addition to the points earned during the run, additional points are awarded to smaller and older motorcycles.

Several of us folks from the Ark-La-Tex area plan to participate the year on steeds such as MB5, C70, CT90, XR100, non-descript scooters, TW200, XT225, KLX250 & CRF250, and perhaps a couple of sidecar rigs. I'd sure enjoy seeing East Texas R25/R26 BMW's in the run. :sun:

Sent in my registration - my friend Jim has graciously loaned me his MB5 50cc street bike for my Tiddling while Jim rides his plated XR100 with street tires. :rider:

We also have Michelle on her KLX250S, Jena riding support on her Burgman sidecar rig, Barry on either his XT225 or Ural sidecar rig, plus Eduardo teasing us and taking the forest road short-cuts on his KTM -unless he opts for our TW200 again.
