There's always John's easy big bike ride

Speaking of eaiser dirt roads.



So glad it was just a unfortunate butterfly that was hurt in the making of that pic.

Is there a cap on the number of participants for this event?

I've been thinking of waiting to see if anyone has an open bed in a camping cabin or room of some sort, and registering at the last minute. Of course if somebody wants to set up a deal right now, I'd be forced to attend. I'll gladly cook breakfast burritos with fresh home-made salsa on my Coleman stove for anyone willing to share accommodations.

We don't currently have a cap on the Rendezvous, but we're considering a cap for 2014.

See that gravel-ly looking stuff under the cameramans boots? Thats the road!

Just a little, right then left S curve, but no, everybody thinks they know a short cut.

Just teasing, he was with our group that day, glad he was'nt hurt. I cant remember was that a case of "looking where you dont want to go and then going there anyway?"

That was Princes Jamaica on my DR and probably his first or second time on a dirt bike. It was a perfect example of you go where you look....
Amazingly he was not hurt and the bike had no real damage.

Me and my two boys, Blbiker56 and TDbiker.

Ugh!! You know looking at that photo gives me the ugh/butterflys in my stomach for a second. That and the knowledge that yes it may just come down sometime.....

Yet that place may just get visited by me as soon as this summer, I can ride there in person and look at it, no problem, but to look at the photo? Ugh. Must be the process of getting there that fixes it for me?

I think that one is on Poison Spider Mesa. It that's the one, when you walk straight out on it you can't see that it is overhanging like that. It's only when you look at it from the side that you get the full effect.
