Dang, I was hoping to get a lesson. Maybe Adam can show me how to make it up those hills on trail 10. I hear Crane has been teaching him. Either my technique needs work or I just need to grow a pair and pin the fooking throttle.

Mike and Kirk ride the Rockcrusher




So, I am gearing up in the pits, and Mike walks up. He tells me he is riding the AA class today because he wants someone to push him!!

At the start, he is lined up with a bunch of AA-class 19 yr olds who race every weekend with varying levels of dealer and parts sponsorship. Mike was easily double the age of most of the class.

Turns out he got 5th in the class. Very impressive.

I just rode around the course in the old, slow guy class and popped wheelies. Didn't kill the engine once or get stuck. Just had fun. (Somehow got 2nd place.)

Team D.O.G.s did OK today.

Was a good day of riding at HP today, nice cool morning temps, into not so bad afternoon temps. We completed 10, w/ only a few mishaps. Dirt Vader still a had dead battery, till he bought one after lunch. He also let/asked me to ride his bike, sure feels alot lighter than my 450. I learned that I dislike 4D trails, but enjoy the 5Ds.

Mr.Twisty how ya feeling? You have that margarita yet?

Louis I'm ready to do it again

Congrats Mike, and Kirk!

Yep, it was a fantastic day until I tried to fly and caught a handlebar in the ribs. Ouch!

I'm downloading the video of Dirt Vader leaning left (you know what I'm talking about , but it's taking forever). You'll just have to see it. It's fricken hilarious. I watched it twice when I got home, but couldn't stand to watch it any more because it hurt too much when I laugh. My camera takes video in .mov format, so I hope others can view it after I put it on Photobook. If not, I may have to buy some software to convert the file to .wav format. It will be worth it. this one is classic, believe me.

No margaritas, but I have had a couple of beers. It's gonna take a couple of days to heal up. I'll post up a picture of my ribs after the video downloads.

If you're using a Windows OS, then you should have Windows Movie Maker, which is a decent beginner video editing software. It gives you several different formats to save as including .avi, ,wmv and others.

Got it, thanks. There was no icon on the desktop, but a file search brought it up.

Edit: Crap, it won't convert the files.

It should give you the option after editing when you click on "publish to". A list of formats should drop down.
