I am pleased to announce the Team Lyle Alamo Express:

http://www.teamlyle-alamoexpress.com/

This will be an All-Nevada BBG starting and ending in Alamo, Nevada, on May 18-20. If getting up and riding the ET highway as the sun rises sounds like fun, then this is the ride for you. We have found the optimum route for a BBG from that location that works well for bikes with fuel cells as well as those that only have a stock tank.

As of right now, there are exactly 7 All-Nevada BBGs certified on the IBA list: 5 from the White Pine Fever rally, one by Reno John, and one by Nathan, the rider who won the second Nevada 1099 rally. I feel that this is a travesty, there should be more Nevada BBGs, as Nevada is the best state in the Union to complete a BBG. And I am willing to go to Jacksonville and tell Greg Rice and John Ryan that to their faces!!!

What makes this special is that there is a minimum amount of Interstate Highway (12%) and you will be leap frogging other riders throughout the event. Plus, you get an almost complete end-to-end run on the Nevada portions of both US-50 and US-6, with 180 miles on I-80 as a mid-ride refresher and an early morning run on the famous Extraterrestrial Highway.

The only fee for this will be a donation to Eddies Road. And thanks to the generous door prizes contributed by LD Comfort, there is a possibility you will walk away with an LD Comfort product worth as much as your donation!

So, say if some crazed bastard thinks that 1520 miles or so in 24 hours in Nevada is for girls that wear pretty dresses and wants to do a 'real man's' 1800+ BBG all in Nevada, you got a route for that big boy?

Huh? Well, do ya?

:P


And what the freak is 'White Pine Fever'? ;)

Skooter,

The answer is yes.

As for WPF, I need Ignacio to tell you how to use the search function.

Hmmmm...........

Tell your 'Consultant'- Mr 'White' that on a REAL ride like this, he should be riding a REAL bike like an FJR, NOT the Queen Mary.

:D

So I have 14 riders signed up as of now, but only two FJRs, and absolutely no GEN 2s among the entries. Am I going to be the only Gen 2 riding this?

Due to popular demand, I am offering a BBG+ route that is an All-Nevada 1800+ miles in 24. Naturally, both FJRs are signed up for this alternative.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to PM me or email me at doug5551@yahoo.com
