LC8s, not only for the boys

Since I was riding solo, I don't have too many pictures, but I borrowed my friends KTM and rode solo through the Spanish Pyrenees. Nothing gnarly, but I mixed it up with a little dirt. Not so bad for a 5'4" woman who had never ridden anything larger than a GS 650 prior to this.

They only shot of have of me with the bike is when I stopped in Andorra and got a shop keeper to take my photo.

From Spain 2011

The video doesn't let you appreciate that the wheels were significantly higher than the seat. Normally I can pick up that beast pretty quickly.

Not really gnarly but here ya go. We dont stop to take pics or forget our cameras on the last minute rides. Oh well.

Rode to Eldons on the ice with a bald scorp. its about 3-ish miles away


Neah Bay, WA. logging road and a dock with a bunch of holes in it on a loaded bike with a wife.


One of many Capitol Forrest runs.


And my gnarliest ride ever, a red head on a rokon

No vid but yes, you've seen this sequence from back in '07(?).



Looking good -



Ooops, wrong lane, too much gas . . .



Pivot turn!



No problem except it's pointed the wrong direction -
