Alley Sweeper?

Portland’s “Alley Sweeper” Urban Enduro is a Go for 2015

Anyone thinking about attending the festivities. A Strom group would be cool.

I spent this afternoon doing diagnostics on my charging system, I think I am good. I am going to install my PC8 tomarrow.

This weekend I will be finding myself rubbing elbows with Larry the Cable Guy at the Crab races in Garabaldi.

I have already called off for April 18th. I intend to run this this year. I kinda hope since there is ample time we can get a group going.

Maybe even come up with some weird Portland theme.

The more the merrier and all that.

Mud, Hippies on fixies, dead animals, Crack dealers, meth heads, hard charging dogs, pissed off homeowners and lots of gravel.

So yeah, all the things that makes Portland great. Perfect for a Stromtrooper!

You can Wash you bike after bro! I wont bother but you can

Oh, I just saw a couple pictures online that showed a very muddy alley, I wasn't sure my worn Street tires would like that. Bike is dirty, haven't washed it since last summer.

So before this ride it looks like it's time for either (A) new tires, or (B) new ADV boots...hmm
