This might be the birth of something epic here? KleinFest UK (sponsored by Autoglym).

Rule 1. Ground must be dry
Rule 2. Sky must be cloudless with no rain forecast for the following seven days
Rule 3. RIGID forks
Rule 4. Twice hourly stop and polish breaks
Rule 5. No mud (dust allowed in moderation)
Rule 6. No rocks/roots/jumps or drop-offs of more than 10mm in order to limit risk of box-fork equipt Kleins cracking
Rule 7. All seatposts must be over 400mm

I think that's covered it. If we play by those rules a grand day out should be had by all. Therepy is available to those owners that may need councilling after actually taking their bike outside.

Please feel free to add more rules :D

Rule 8. CANTI-BRAKES ONLY

I actually abide by those rules when ever I rid my Attitude. Except for Rule 4, I try to do that while riding. It's a little dangerous, but nothing is to goo for my baby.

Rule 9. Slicks allowed and maybe preferred to prevent excessive vibration to your precious frame
