They do fill up and turn to shit in the mud. Watched a few guys running trials tires hit some snotty stuff at Flint Ridge and they were squirming all over the fucking place.

I also know that many of you FFs aren't hockey fans, but this should help get the puckheads among us get through the next 11 weeks.

Videos look good, Luke.

I see your taste in music is improving. Slightly. WAAAAAARRRRRR!!!!!!

Funny, I was watching the videos and Meredith was studying in the same room, and I looked up to see her staring at me as you were in the background laughing on the video. "Is that fucking Luke?", she asked. She could ID you by your laugh!

Are you sure you are safe working nights? Sounds suspicious.

I've spent years getting it that particular sound without the added snort through the nose. Actually I used to belly laugh like a drunk viking and you've seen my belly!

Hmmm. You make a good point. Perhaps I will have to come home unannounced in the near future.

The worse thing to do is ride a bike that will wear you out. Poor suspension will beat you to death. Horsepower can work both ways, too little and you struggle on the big hills, too much and you spend more energy holding on than riding. Can't remember how tall you are but a bike with an e-start might be beneficial even if it does add a few pounds. Someone mentioned the number of big thumpers out there with riders who couldn't re-start them.

That would have helped. You look short in the video, I thought it had to be Rob. No offense Rob, your riding skills always leave me looking up to you. Besides Mike, I never knew you were so theatrical.

Let me ease your fears. I own a KLR and Mt Gillead is so far away. It's not me.

It's all the gear, makes my ass look fat, therefore, more square in stature. I even wore dark colors!

If you can't laugh at yourself, you'll be the only one not laughing.

A man that can laugh at himself is forever amused.
