#1 Post by Fanny Fligurl » Sat Sep 15, 2012 2:00 pm

Come one, come all to one of our most sought out routes of the season. It's time to slay the Little Dragon, and this year we've added some new twists. Goaty - a little. Technical twisties - a ton! GOBS OF UBER FRESH PAVEMENT - YES INDEED! :dance:

Head East on Yosemite (5.3 mi)

200 miles from start to finish, and we'll even lead ya back to the freeway for safe keeping. ;-) Please, oh please ensure you are rested, hydrated, properly geared, and legal! CU rolls w/ sweep vehicles in the unfortunate event the Little Dragon eats somebody, not to pick up your moto from the impound yard. :snooty: Thanks in advance!

Bring it Rich, bring it! It's our pleasure to see you twice in one month! Can't wait to see your face when you get a taste of the Little Dragon. :-P
