I have thought of that very thing Chris (and have enough runners right now to do it). But the reality is that weather/course conditions and terrain limit my desire to even try. Some bikes I simply don't want to thrash through mud pits or rock gardens. More detailed pre race trail reports that don't remind me of '80's ski condition promises would also help riders pick a suitable mount each event. :pop

I will try and match a few different bikes to the rotation this season. There are 3-4 in particular I'd like to get out on. We'll
see how it all unfolds weather/venue wise :thumbsup:

Hope to see the Rokon :biggrin


Yeah, I'll be going Pre-Modern at any serious mudders and the more technical courses (Satan's), and Vintage/Evo at the more vintage-friendly venues. The Rokon is on the list, wanted to shred it on the grass track at King Philip but its not on the schedule for 2020.

There will be miles of grass at Spring Brook Farm, May 2nd. This will be one of the most vintage friendly tracks you all have ever experienced in New England, and its going to stay that way because it will be kids and vintage only for ever.

I'm thinking the same with my daughter planning on joining us: Me on the YZ and her on the KD for the easier ones and swap for the more challenging courses. Hmmm, not sure though...

Funny guy. Why don’t you use the one you drag behind during the vintage races?

Party foul! You can't respond directly to a bike taunt with a personal taunt. That's like going directly from a double-dog dare to a triple-dog dare without a triple dare in the middle.

Okay - I usually just lurk, but that got my attention. :shades: I am assuming it's a 97 Jack Piner...please PM me details, would love to have one of those sitting next to one of its older relatives. Thanks!
