I am a little bit suprised and disappointed. Of the 234 people that have looked at this thread you mean only 14 people have advise for a first time cross country rider. I really like the stuff I have heard so far but is that all we can come up with. WOW! I know there are plenty of you that do this sort of thing all the time. Come on what do you have for those of us attempting this for the first time. Isn't this a prime example of the type of information that should be shared in this format?
