Deals Gap - May 17-21

I'm comin down with about 12 of my local idiot friends this May coming up. I've never been to the Gap but im a fairly competent rider. If any of my 10R brethren were thinkin of doing a trip around then... lets make it happen for one of those days... a ZX10 free-for-all in the mountains. oh the shenanigans!

I'm actually looking to go down at that time aswell, another rider I know from my area is organizing it, about 10 of us are going so far, I'm the only one on a 10R but Im all for that

How far of a drive is it from the Calais Maine border?

Talking

If you are a competent rider, throw that out. It is one of the seven wonders of the world. You will feel incompetent for the first few trips through!!

Is it Fast?

True, ditches and guardrails and ravines scare me... but when i say "somewhat competent" i mean that i don't get passed very often in the advanced group and i run a decent amateur race pace on a race track. but the gap would be uncharted waters for me so it'll definitely be pretty tame at first.

Looking into being down there about the same time also. Me and about 3-4 others, should be a good time..

Be warned though,,, after going home you may suffer from curve withdraw and some other serious side effects will follow.
