What happened to the Scaredy Cat Ride? / What happened to Dualsport Rider Magazine?

------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Rat Dog Archives: 10/6/08: After much thought, we have decided to cancel this year's Rat Dog Dualsport due to various reasons, primarily that it is opening day of rifle hunting season in Washington. Contact me if you have any questions, and we are extremely sorry for any inconvenience. -Tom

  • 9/30/08: After being gone for two months on sabbatical, I'm back and will be working on the Rat Dog! Will post updates as they happen. -Tom

  • 7/16/08: We've changed our minds and the 2008 Rat Dog will be in the Tillamook State Forest (although we may still have another ride in Washougal, WA).

  • 11/4/07: We have a date for the '08 Rat Dog: October 11! It will be in Washougal, WA area, so plan to attend!

  • 10/16/07: We have officially canceled this year's Rat Dog due to various reasons such as staging-area concerns, permit costs, lack of pre-entries to justify costs, etc. We have a very cool route set up, so that work is all finished for next year, but the other items still need to be addressed. Apologies to those of you who pre-entered. We will either credit your entry or refund your money. Contact us if you have any questions. Sorry for any inconveniences.

  • 9/26/07: We have the route established, but we haven't nailed the staging area quite yet. Hope to have it solidified after this weekend!

  • 8/7/07: The 2007 Rat Dog is officially rescheduled to October 27! Yes, we know that it conflicts with the 24-Hour GP, but open slots are sparse. Plans are to have it in the Washougal, WA area, so stay tuned!

  • 7/23/07: Change of plans, folks - we're rescheduling this year's Rat Dog to either late September or October, so stay tuned for updates. Oh, we're probably going to change the location also.

  • 9/24/03: Looks like our friends at Applegate Roughriders are getting the runaround from BLM and had to change their date for the Bulldog Dualsport to Nov 9th due to elk season.  Your copy of Dualsport Rider Magazine should be landing in your mailboxes about now!

  • 9/23/03: Well, now that Rat Dog's done,  now it's time for some fun riding for us.  Seems like all we do is spend time setting up for our events, so now we're making plans on just some fun rides elsewhere.  Gifford Pinchot NF in October will probably be our next venture!

We STILL plan on having a good time, whether we want to or not!  

  • 9/24/02:The Lobos M/C website appears to still be dead, so I've scanned a flyer for their upcoming Horny Wolf Dualsport Ride and linked it to the Calendar section.

  • 9/23/02: It's done, ba-bee! Many thanks to many people for their help at the Rat Dog and now we'll start thinking about next year's events, but not till we've gone out and done some riding just for fun!

  • 9/19/02:Evidently, there's been a few times that our website has been down.  Our web host, Powweb, said they were doing server upgrades, so there should be no more downtime.  Also posted some simple driving directions to get to the Rat Dog staging area at Trask County Park.

  • 9/17/02:Posted a couple updates in the Rat Dog section. Be sure to keep checking back for more updates as the week progresses for the event!

  • 9/13/02: Happy ! Added a helpful check-off list and course descriptions in the Rat Dog section for those that are still unclear on what to expect at our rides.  Also got the flyer for the upcoming October 6, Lobos M/C "Horny Wolf" Dualsport Ride in the mail.  Their website appears to be dead, so you can contact them at: phone: (503)-656-5801 or email: N7WXD@aol.com for a flyer.

  • 9/11/02:Added a reminder note in the Rat Dog section for you riders to be sure and bring a small gas can to store in your truck, so you can top off after your first loop (of the figure-eight course).

  • 8/27/02:  For some reason, MSN had killed some of our pages (like the informative about the historic Trask ISDE race and the 2001 Rat Dog Pix), so I've now fixed the links and they're working again.  Also posted the latest OMRA Dualsport Series points totals in the OMRA section.

  • 7/29/02:  Mystery rider exposed! This month's issue of Motorsports News Magazine has a picture from the Black Dog on the cover, but no one knew who it was. It finally sunk in today who it might be.  Go to the Black Dog section to see who it is! (Hint: initials are L. L.)

  • 7/27/02:  With the bad situation/outlook with Weyerhaeuser, we aren't taking any chances and have officially relocated the start/finish of the Rat Dog to the Trask County Park and NOT the Flying M Ranch. Please make a note of it! 

  • 7/24/02:  Looks as though we've been thrown a curve from Weyerhaeuser (new landowners of the Trask Mountain area).  Their initial plans are to close all their land to the public, which means we will have to relocate the Rat Dog event in the Tillamook area.  Stay tuned!

  • 7/20/02:  Our good friends at Maddox Photography posted this year's Black Dog pix on their site, so you can order copies, so check them out.  Some great shots - even some bails!  We're heading South this weekend to ride the MRA's Prospect 100 Dualsport - hope to see ya'll there!

  • 7/19/02:  The initial 2002 Black Dog article is posted in the Chronicles section! (due to a deadline for Motorsports News Magazine)  We also have a few more pictures to post, so keep checking back.

  • 7/17/02:  We have an urgent request for those of you that rode this year's Black Dog: please email me your comments/quotes ASAP (especially if they're funny), since I was informed I have a deadline of 7/18 evening to finish an article for Motorsports News Magazine.  Please email to: TawmN@blackdogdualsport.com  Thanks! -Tom

  • 7/15/02:  We are sooooo whipped!  The Black Dog is finished and we're bushed.  Will update soon, since there are plenty of pix and stories. 

  • 7/8/02:  Well, this is the last message, as we are spending the duration up on the mountain for you all getting the Black Dog ready, so see ya there!

  • 7/6/02: Added another Black Dog preride report in the Chronicles section.

  • 6/14/02:  Charity donation request! Our friend Joe Lawry had a major accident on his Yamaha dualsport bike awhile back and bent his bike frame in a big way.  Joe is (fortunately!) doing better now, but his bike now 'dog tracks' down the road.  There is a charity program going on to get Joe a new bike frame.  Why should you donate? Because Joe is integral for many awesome trails that the Black Dog uses and he's on a fixed, retirement income.  If you feel compelled to donate any amount (as we are!), please send to our address, C/O "Joe Lawry Fund" and we will deliver to Joe (Note: this is a surprise to him).  Thanks in advance! (Also, re-updated the OMRA Dualsport Series results from the China Hat dualsport ride.) 

  • 6/11/02:  Wow! We're getting inundated with many kind words about our recently published Dualsport Rider Magazine!  Walt and I put in a ton of work on it in an effort to make it something of value and quality for you, the riders, and to promote dualsporting.  If you like it, I urge you to email your comments to Jerry Lenz of Beaverton Honda/Yamaha in care of   DSSTeam@aol.com   and let him know you want this thing to continue.  (Also, please visit WideOpenSports.com for your parts & accessories needs and let them know you would like to receive a Dualsport Rider Magazine with your next order.)  Let's just say it was a rather large cost to make/mail the mags and, if he doesn't get any good return on investment (press, customer feedback, etc.), it's questionable whether another issue will ever happen.  It is being mailed to my database of 2,500 and 11,000 are also going out to AMA members that have expressed interest in dualsporting. If you don't get one within the next couple weeks, email me with mailing info and I'll see if I can ship one out to you.  -Tom

  • 6/9/02:  I just got confirmation that our famous Black Dog massage therapist, Ilse, will once again grace our event this year.  Check out the details by clicking here!

Also input the OMRA Dualsport Series results from the Simple Simon ride.  If you're thoroughly bored you can check out my escapades in Taiwan by clicking here.  -Tom

  • 5/31/02:  The Dualsport Rider Magazine is finished from the presses and is being mailed out now - Woohoo! If you were on our database, you should be receiving one in the mail soon.  Also FYI, I will be away all week on a biz trip and will be back on June 8, so don't expect any updates until then. -Tom

  • 2/26/02:  We FINALLY have our own full-blown domain - woohoo!  What this means is that we no longer use a redirect and have a MUCH higher access amount for everyone (no more stinking access limits!).  Also have 100mb of data storage, baby!  With that, you'll want to be SURE and update your  bookmark for us to the new, improved, current and 'real' URL above.  Updating of the website look & feel is now in process, so look for some changes soon!
