FWIW, looks like over 65 on Saturday and over 60 on Sunday as before. Come on out and support the new class and see your old buddies!

For Saturday it was tacky, just a little slippery and I still got a pile of mud I scraped off. These guys that raced after Saturday nights rain have a mess to cleanup!

As far as getting out, I heard some turned traction control off and pinned it, others got pulled out by a tractor. Got to love offroad racing, lol.

Have ridden a couple enduros there in those conditions, that dirt ain't fun when saturated. Our E TX and LA sandy trails can be very excellent when soaked and the bikes are still easy to clean. Being 30-40 years younger was a plus also. I see a need for a chain and sprockets and probably brake pads for lots of those guys.

A mud run used to be fun 30-40 years ago. No desire to renew-revisit-relive those memories. NONE! After not riding for 11 months I am wondering if its time for fishing and golf. Sucky riding areas 2.5 to 3 hours away and events 4-11 hours one way and traveling alone is getting old.

Sad but true, I think too often of getting out. This nasty weather doesn't help.

Just do it, really. I ran on my Drz 400 before. No big deal, there are a lot of orange bikes but plenty of others as well. I didn’t have tear offs and was fine- wore out but fine. One kid even asked me if I rode my bike there- priceless. If your anxious about it, just ride your comfort zone and have fun, or wot- whatever. Oh and I wasn’t last by any means- even beat a cr250 (fellow twt’r)
If these events weren’t so far away- I would ride a lot more of them.

One thing I need that I dont have yet is roll offs or tear offs. can you run tear offs in torcs? I've read the rulebook before but it's been awhile
Sure you can use tearoffs, I just wear goggles over glasses, unless it's raining not a problem.
