    Thanks for the heads up IEGPR!

    I might have to add the following to the thread:
    For all those not attending the 'Worlds at Havasue', you are more than welcome to come on an adventure ride. The lake will be empty.

    Cheers

    haHAAA!
    looks like you'll slip in right in behind the first cold front of the year, lest it lags.
    supposed to be 20 degrees cooler than norm, but warming for sat/sun.
    you may wanna pack a shortie, just in case.

    I'm now off to get a calendar...
