Ok Guys and Gals we got permission from Twisty Butt corporate to offer to one lucky "Twisty Butt Rider" the chance to win this..



You got it, thats right a set of Michelin PR2"s. We will have a drawing on Saturday night during the banquet and just after TBA certificates are handed out, one lucky winner will find themselves with a brand new set of tires.

Just to be clear this is only available to those riders that actually complete the SFO "All Day 500"

You can sign up now at www.twistybutt.com or sign up the Friday night at or before the riders meeting!

Any questions post um up here or at TwistyButt.com

Just got the word today "Lower Management" (as in scrape the bottom of the barrel) will not be eligable for this prize. Unless of course no one else completes the ride!

Any chance there'll be a TBA ride at SFO 2012?
Is it on the table? If not, lay it out there.

Now why would they be talking about a set of PR2's as a drawing prize for those who complete the TBA ride if there was to be no ride ? YOU MIGHT READ THE THREAD FIRST, less embarrassing

Well, with no voice coming from TBA Corporate responding to the question, it seems that TBA is defunct.

Heres a voice....
How times have changed, I used to hit this forum all the time, not so much any more. But....as far as the Twisty Butt goes...we can do one for sure! My question is how many riders actually want to ride a twisty butt? If we have just a few, its good enough for me, a small group (4-5) would be a lot of fun too!
No tire give aways for sure.
If we do one, I highly reccommend we do it Friday, less traffic, LEO's etc...

For those of you who may not know exactly what a twisty butt is....
Its a 500+ mile ride through the twistiest roads/route we can put together. It goes rain or shine, its not a speed contest, but you will have a time limit "12 hours" which is roughly a 45 MPH AVG, if you take 12 hours to do it. Sounds easy huh?

Lets see here if we have any interest or not. If only a few, I suggest we just make it a group ride and have a fun "All Day" ride!

My son and I are both interested but if rain likely we will probably wuss out. If weather good we're in and since we plan on arriving Thursday or earlier twisty but on Friday sounds good.

A group ride sounds great for me. Fiday (or Saturday). Twisty bumm or not? Maybe not 500 miles in the rain though. :dribble:

Haven't you heard. It's not going to rain this year because we are having SFO in summer heat when it stops raining so much. Just make sure to bring the air conditioned space suit. :lol:

I do have to say, having done one TBA ride, it is a blast and the roads were pretty damn nice. It was enough fun that I'd like to do it again... rain or shine (or intermittent scattered rain with idyllic cool temperatures like what I did before). Mark me as one highly interested in a Friday TBA ride.
