I know why your keeping that 98 YZ LOL.

Right now the CATRA loop for this years Vintage stands around 4.3 miles of the "easy" stuff. I was thinking we should take a vote/poll if you guys want longer / harder loop. You know - with some of our special stuff - Oh **** Hill, Finger Hill, Whiskey Bottle Hill, Bowling Ball Swamp, Never Dry Swamp, and of course who can forget Demon Dave's behind the Pavilion! :biggrin

Easy stuff is key.. The bikes are old or the racers are old so easy is fun....

That 98 YZ250 is the first bike I ever bought new and raced NETRA with so it's a bit more than me just waiting for it meet the 25 year rule.

I agree with Tom. I like challenging, but not the challenge of finding parts for my 46 year old dirt bike. Keep it fast and fun and I’ll be there as usual. Every year I’ve gone to CATRA on a vintage class bike, I’ve had a blast. Design it for the back row and everyone will have fun.

I'm going to make my first ever pilgrimage to CATRA-land this year, it's about a five-hour ride so it qualifies as a pilgrimage. Please reward me with fun, fast, flowy trails for my Ossa and keep all those colorfully-named trails for the Sunday guys. :twothumbs:

Keep the "easy" course and they will be back next year. Vintage bike parts are getting harder and harder to find. Maybe I can convince my brother-in-law to let me use his bike for the day. :biggrin
Doubt it though. :devil

There was another guy on an xl who ended up having a bad season. I think he rides new bikes now.

No streams or ponds to go through this year. Don't go around our bridges.

Hot lap - well Dan and my speed LOL - 17 min loop. We pushed hard too - only did 1 lap :letsgo

Sounds perfect to me. I don’t have time to wash my bike and the kids bikes so the cleaner the lap the better!

Still washing out the cow **** from the kids bikes from last weekend! :sick
