    I've scored your 4-corners ride. See me on the Gypsy Tour to get your scorebook stamped.

    Certainly there is *something* to cause loss of GS BS points for that total lameness...

    Mistress Scorekeeper, quick, make up a new rule!

    on the cool Spot show.

    Having ridden Alleppo Road in the truck, I can tell you it's GS worthy! Same with the South East corner. I'll let the 4-corners slide...

    We will check to see that:

    1) you don't look like a dork

    2) your bike doesn't look like a dork

    3) you have the right gear: helmet, eye protection, gloves, boots and full-length padded clothing.

    4) your bike is your bike, but we will advise you to:

    - remove your saddlebags
    - remove your mirrors
    - remove your windscreen and turn signals

    now, if you see me out there on my KLR 250 and say that i look like a dork, well, then...... i AM a dork!

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Does extra padding included in one's anatomy pass tech inspection requirements?

    Rene is coming to help the GS Giant(s)

    If one cannot command attention by one's admirable qualities one can at least be a nuisance

    GS BS - THE BEAR

    Since a few Giant wannabees have challenged the Mistress, she will take a picture of any bear in PA. HOWEVER, the best bear gets the bonus.


    Get creative!
