    Who's going to N* this Saturday for the final end of N* Blowout session?

    I'll be there on a big green El Cuervo with a couple of other guys(one blue Intense, one blue Bullit).

    Throw up the Monkey Gang sign if you see us! :thumb:

    Cheers.

    Rememeber, if there's anythign there you have not ridden yet for one reason or another, you better do it this weekend as it might just be the last time ever. :mumble:

    I am going up there on Sunday if anyone is going to be there. Look for the tall guy with the blue vp free and red/black/yellow full face.

    I was thinking more along the lines of either slinging a bunch of poo, of just a big middle finger in the air!

    It's looking pretty good for me to make it up there for most of the day Saturday. I'll be on a black vp-free with a 888. Say howdy and I'll try to do the same.

    Brian, I'll be looking out for ya, maybe we can do some slow runs together. It's been a while so I'll be the rusty ripper this weekend. :thumb:

    Yeah for sure. Not sure what happened but this is actually going to be my first (and only) weekend up there this year. Did a bunch of riding in D-ville and around Tahoe, just never made it to the Star. Was up like 5 or 6 times last year, I dunno. Summer really flew by.

    No kidding!

    I got over ten runs at d-ville and only spent two days at N*, but that was on my friggin "trail" bike since I didn't have a fork for my downhill bike. My crossmax xl's may never forgive me.

    I'm gonna really try to make it out there. I'll be on a bare aluminum Sunday with a 888.

    man, it sure looked like it was going to be a busy day at N* when we rolled into the parking lot. But by a little after noon, the mountain had a pretty empty feel to it. Maybe people packed it in early?
    Did a handfull of runs, getting out to Boondocks twice. Man, that trail is suuuuweat! Not your typical N* trail that's for sure. The change was greatly appreciated.
    Saw YetiDher from the lift...can't miss `em! Never did see Acadian...mayeb he's just too fast to be seen!
    I did however see the guy on the blue SC with Red links...I was rubbing your back wheel in the lift line just as you loaded up!

    I drove up on saturday and realized I forgot my helmet... doh. So I drove back home and then back up and made it for 3 runs before they closed... It was ok though, I got to race and ride today...

    Had a great time up there today, but being out of shape really kills you at elevation I discovered. Didnt race, just rode, got a discount ticket, was a good day but I need to ride a lot more to get the feeling back. Had a Demo 9 with a 2000 Boxxer

    PS. That new hip (its a kickout to the right) is sick, like midway down the mountain?

    Rode Yesterday, i was on a black v-10 and i have long girly looking hair...It was an all around good day except for my linkage pivot bearing ****ting out on me and my rear end could flex like mad so i had to pull the crank and tighten everything up. No big deal though. Also, that new double at the top is somewhat fun, but the thing i dont understand is why they put it there? I had to hit it once before i actually got the speed down. I just wish they put stuff like that on a run with flow in it, but its better than nothing i guess...

    Yeah I had a great time doing a bunch of runs Saturday and Sunday, awesome last weekend. The weather was great, trails were...well they were like always, super rocky and dusty, lots of fun.

    Rode the lift with Kidwoo and Chicodude (good meeting you guys), met up with Acadian and some others. Followed Chicodude for a little bit and we were suddenly way back, then saw those guys heading for Flameout and was like "WTF, screw that!" and went down Karp. It was only a little later that I realized they probably went down Dog Bone...oh well, next year.

    I got some race pics and will post up a few later on tonight...

    Ah, I figured something was going on, should have stopped to ask. But yeah, hopefully we'll run into each other again sometime.
