I plan to bring our "new" Honda 250R out to play. One trip on this sweet ride will take you back down memory lane. The suspension sucks, the brakes suck, the seat is soft and comfy, she smells like gas and oil, but she fires right up like an old Honda should. It's not the best bike, but it might be the most fun! :D

I cleared it with Luc and invited a friend so he should be there.

I have a KTM 200 for sale if anyone is looking for a spare bike or know of someone looking for a nice bike to get into riding dirt. $1800

When you say "the trails", do you mean the trails at Luc's place for this ride?
Luc told me he was working on some new trails.
Great Job Luc!! You must have worked hard and moved tons of dirt because your wooded trails look exactly like the Spillway Cycle Area now.

I didn't specify only Luc's trails. We rode the trails for a couple hours, then went out to Luc's and rode for a couple hours. Luc took us up his new trails but I didn't get any video of it, so I'll keep it a secret.
Sunday I took my daughter to the trails and did some riding, trimming and hiking for a couple hours. It was great!

Safiri Mike will be here!!!

Therefore, the new list is:

Savage & Family
Avery
Motomann & Family
Troy & family
XR-nut & family
Safiri

If your name is not in the list above, please post so we can make sure we'll have enough food for everybody!

Here is the plan, meet around 10ish for the earlies so we can put in some riding before lunch then we'll have probably a late lunch before we get on to some more riding :-)

Léonce and I opened up a couple of nice little trail on sunday morning that even Quincon has not ridden!

I thought I filmed it all on sunday afternoon but I cannot get the movie off my camera to play :-(

Lars will be joining me. :-)

Troy and I are going to leave KC about 930 so Lars can play his last flag football game of the season.

Lars has ridden a 50 all of 10 minutes (in my backyard) and did well. The wide open field will be great for him to work on skills without trees, etc. in the way.

Troy, is there a way for Facebook video to show up like YouTube, etc? Probably more coding for you, so forget I asked.

Here is the embed code provided by Facebook, but I couldn't figure out how to make it work:
<div id="fb-root"></div> <script>(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>
<div class="fb-post" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10202122899428678" data-width="466"><div class="fb-xfbml-parse-ignore"><a href="https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10 ... 8">Post</a> by <a href="https://www.facebook.com/michael.alsin">Michael Alsin</a>.</div></div>

This is awesome!!!

Also if everybody could bring a chair to sit that would be great, we will have a few to spare but not enough for everybody!
