Default Idaho City ISDE qualifier

Just back from the qualifier. I'll post up some pictures. Not a great showing for me. I ran out of gas and watched my hopes disappear as literally hundreds of riders cruised on by. I waited 5 hours before the sweep crew showed up to rescue me with some mixed petrol. The sweep crew were very busy, and very very tired. Many riders ran out of fuel, many just gave up from exhaustion, and many were stuck. More people failed to finish than reached the finish on time for this one. It was pretty ugly, but that's the way I like it, and the way it should be. I learned a few things. Number one, I have great freinds, and the best dad ever.

Man that does suck... I went for a rip on S/T stuff this weekend and went on reserve at 65 km. Bigger tank would be nice.

Have you thought of carrying extra?

Mike,

Sorry to hear that......running out of gas has to really suck

Not to throw salt in the wound, but looks like D-36 made a strong showing!

Here's a picture of me on the trail. I uploaded 25 images that Jeff took at the race to Photobucket. There are several more to upload of some historical sites and a few of some of our friends.

No more qualifiers. My plan is to go do some local stuff. I also have some tours to guide with my freind and I and our new tour company "Chuckwagon Tours." I'm going to go ahead and begin the new plan for next year. I'm trying not to get too down on myself, because it is 100% my fault I ran out of gas......

Oh, and the best way to keep the signals and lights in tact is not to hit things! Besides, it's a great psyche out when a guy on a "dual sport bike" passes you in a race.
