Coming up next, Back 40 Enduro 2 – November 22!
We’ve been out scouting routes, buying safe passage from tribal leaders and measuring glacier stability.
Stay tuned for details and optimal tire choice!
Sunday, September 21st
Meet at Kenton Station (8303 N Denver) at 9:30am for breakfast and benchracing, then we’ll head out around 11am for 50 miles of some of the best close-in twisty roads the area has to offer.
Around 1pm, the ride will arrive at 611 N Tillamook for a good ol’ fashioned STREET PARTY.
There’ll be burnouts, beer, and LIVE rockandroll music! Plus gymkana!
Drag the dusty ol’ smokers out of the shed and join us for some blue smokey fun!
Munns Hole has made it to The Island, his bikes arrived safely and now so has his crew!
First reports are positive!
I put in four laps today on the “street” bike. Pulled the exhaust baffles and went for it. Passed several cops and they didn’t seem to give a shit. Lots of thumbs up as I boomed through the villages In Sunday traffic. With the weather going from sunny to rain back to sunny to gnarly wind gusts. I was lifted off my line on windy corner.
About half the course is speed limited to 30-50kph and the other half is no speed limit. Sort of insane that you can still do things like this.
Go! Go! Go!
