Thumbs, I'll be there and my family and I will be at the Wicked Bird this weekend. We are going to join the club and Larry E. said come on out. I think you said you are out this weekend to the Lake E-GP. Haven't raced it, but always go to watch Shane Watts, Mike K, Steve Hatch, etc. Good event and you may have some rain. Look out if you do, it gets slick and it's a fast race for sure. I'd like to hook-up with some of the TWMC guys at the hilltoppers. Will you have a crew out there from TWMC? If not I've been racing a bit with RUTS and they should have pits, I've also been talking with MikeW from KTMTalk (HBMC) and they will be racing too.

Anyway, it should be fun, a bit of everything from washes to good rocky trails.

Drop me a line and let me know where you will be and I'll bring extra fire wood.

dingoe - I did the GP last year and it was very slick on the pavement. A few guy in my race wadded it up on the start going into the first turn onto Main street. Besides the water truck I think those were the only guys I passed ......lol

I don't know who will be at the Hilltoppers race from TWMC but I'm sure there will be a few of us there. I'll probably head out there on Saturday afternoon. I'll be the tent trash with the bronze colored f-150 & ktm 200mxc.

JPIVEY, is that a Hare & Hound or a Desert Scrable? I was thinking about pie plating a D37 race at the end of this year to see if I was interested. I would appreciate any info you have.

BTW: If the group isnt interested in the Lucerne ride, I would be interested in another ride somewhere. Stoddard, Mirage, Barstow or even Phelan all sound good.

Hi Boodac,

It's suppose to be a scramble; I know, the way they say 2 38 mile loops makes it sound like a H/H

I am up for anything, but I would like to have a newbie freind come along so I was thinkin somthing less trecharous than a scramble or HH. Dont know if Im up for for 72 miles :o

If the general concensus is Lucerne Ill do it.

I dont know the Phelan area, but Im game for there or any other.

No worries, you don't have to do both loops, you reg to do one loop, a lot of riders do one loop, also a lot of riders don't run a race pace, just run your own pace and you will have a blast.

and I bet you'll place pretty good if you just ride a nice steady pace, all you really want to do is finish, have a good time and get that finishers pin, leave the fast stuff for the hot shots.

It's a good time, with good people

If not the Lucerne race, then we should put something together out at Stoddard Wells. The ride out to Slash X is always fun and of course the stop down at the abandoned 100 + ft mine shaft would be a good stop off as well. Whether Lucerne or otherwise Im thinking Im ready for a ride. Although having the whole crew do a scramble sounds kind of fun.

thumbs, I'll be camping out of my chevy van (white van) so I guess I'm about equal to that tent class. It's OK though less to deal with at the end of a long race weekend. I'll be riding a Husqvarna TE-570, Beg 4-stroke class so I only do one loop. I'll get there Saturday noon or so. Bomb is open at 3pm and good riding around there too.

Good luck at the GP. Weather looks good for now, maybe no rain.

I'll look for you all at the hilltoppers.
