I mean 390 a totally different road. Think 3090 with elevation changes. For those of you who think 3090 is a serious road (i do not disagree with you) 390 is quite intense. I wont be running it fast for the most part. Plus getting to this road it wont be till later in the day.

Forest & Then some
Sunday 5/10

Meet @ 9:30AM PP69 (45&242 shell)
KSU 10:15AM SHARP!!


We are going to take the typical forest then 3090 route, then shoot over to TWS (Texas World Speedway) and attempt to make it for parade laps. After that on to College Station to Chicken Oil Co. for grub! (YUMMM GREASY BURGERS!!!)

Then whoever wants to continue riding can, and we will be going to the Sommerville area to ride FM 390

2. AaronP220 (if he makes it back from Dallas)
3. Bevo
4. Viffer'06
5. Thomas78 (2up)
6. Solomon (CRAZY)

Add yourself, Also make note that those of you who continue on after lunch with us, it will be a long ride.

Zakly. Just because the rode is intense doesn't mean you have to take it at 150%. Just enjoy the ride and take your time. If I'm back in time I'm going to.

Actually, they recommend you get there by 11. I'll be riding up there too. Don't think I can join you guys for the Forest, though.

Nevertheless, we may join you guys for lunch afterwards.
