Ride With The Champs

Live On Skis was the most fun I’ve ever had there. Three days of perfect riding conditions on some of the best trails in the world – with what are clearly some of the best people in the world.

Despite my near perfect record of destroying every machine I was on, I had a blast! I went up with three machines, and borrowed one from Doc Jim. I managed to wreck a cylinder on the borrowed one, tore the track of my most trusted and mechanically sound 80 TX, and my nephew blew up his TXL Starfire he worked on all summer (story on that sled on the bottom of this page), leaving only my 76 250 Starfire in running condition.

But again, I digress.

The point is, the riding was so much fun, that I want to do it all over again, and I intend to. This weekend, I’m off to St. Germain to partake in the "Vintage Challenge" a very long ride on the vintage machines with some of the sports greatest legends. It’s all part of thee Hall of Fame’s annual induction ceremony (this year will see
Keith Vreeland, Clyde Seely, Ray Monsrud and Jim Dimmerman inducted) and annual fund raiser.

I’ve done this ride before and it’s a ton of fun. If you can get there, and you have a sled that runs, you will want to be there. More info is available on the Hall of Fame Site.

Since I don’t have sled that runs, I’ll be the one standing outside Thee Hall of Fame with sign that says "Sled Needed For Today’s Ride!*"

*Preferably a sled that does not qualify as NBR (Not Built in Roseau). Just kidding! Relax!
