RIGHT ON!!! Thank you CMA for coming through on such short notice! CMA provided breakfast for us at the 2014 and 2015 Stampedes also, much appreciated! I know at least two of our regulars will be riding the CMA event the weekend before Stampede too..

Cycle Gear and MAP onboard for raffle sponsorship is a nice extra of the unexpected variety!! Yay... I like free gear!!

Derek, thanks again for all your efforts and planning, for a guy who never even attended one of the pre 2016 Stampedes your really doing an incredible job capturing that vibe...Hats off to you buddy.....

Bare Minimum:
Full face Helmet and Eye Protection

I guess I am in trouble because I have never owned a full face helmet and never will. I am still stuck in the 70's with my retro helmet and big Magoo bill.

It's all a personal preference issue for sure! At least your wearing a lid!! Personally I'm all about the full face helmet myself, life has taught me many lessons... Lol

Whatever works for ya man :)  I've torn up plenty of helmets in my day, and I'd be significantly uglier without full face lids, lol. :)

Nothing officia, but i'm sure there will be a couple groups out and about. I'm planning on being in town by noon, to set some things up and eyeball some stuff. I'd be up for a jam for certain.

Harold, what gear SHOULD I wear was the header, no one is going to make a full face helmet a requirement for you or anyone else around here! I never even noticed your helmet!! Lol

It did not sound like a personal preference, it was labeled as a bare minimum which I will not be able to comply. Being my 47th year of riding, I really don't plan to change now.

Its in the FAQ section Harold, aimed towards newer folks who aren't really sure how all this stuff works.  If you wanna wear an open face helmet- cool man, wear it. :)

While we're chatting- how about leading a group for us this year man?  :)  8) :D
