Luke, at least they took a picture of you. I looked through all 143 of those pics and I'm nowhere to be found. So, since no one thought to take a picture of the guy riding dead last at Flint Ridge, I'll post some pics of my own instead:

the toy hauler

the big toy

the little toy

I wasn't in any of the Flint Ridge photos either, nor was Z@ch or anyone else I knew other than Buildit's one snap.

Oh well, my awesomeness is hard to capture on film.

Speaking of awesome, reminding anyone that didn't see the post that my big bike ride is coming up on the 9th, and I have the route ready in .gdb and .gpx format for anyone coming, just IM me if ya want it.

Hopefully the weather's good, the ride is really nice I just rode it in its entirety just to see how it all flowed it's fun even if you skip the gnarly parts.

I think some out of towners and folks from far out are coming up and camping at my place Friday and going to the Pioneer for breakfast that morning, if anyone wants to join in on either, feel free!

Welcome, Cuberbob! What's Wroking? I'm in the southeast near Laurelville, you're welcome to come down and camp anytime.

Was holding out hope I could hit up your ride, swingset. Alas I'm forced to be at a reunion on the 9th.

I should probably just ask my husband, be he left for work and I was lurking around to see if I could find anything, but anyhow....if I wanted to buy some inexpensive saddle bags for the vstrom 650 what should I look for? They don't have to be hard mounted, just something I can throw on if I use my bike to go to work. I'd even consider a top mounted bag, even though Mark hates them! I just hate having to always wear a backpack and then tote everything into work with me. I just don't know what to even look at.

Thanks

Holy shit, you answered. You were checking the thread to see if anyone bit on your KLX, or what? And I got your "homo" right here...

Umm, I have a 2 hour drive to work during which time you could have called me and we could have discussed numerous things, including how much I love you, how happy I am with you, and that fact that I would opt for Ortlieb Dry bag saddlebags from Aerostich if I were looking for soft, throw over bags.

Obviously you know my suggestion for hard bags would be Happy Trails because you park next to me every day.

However, given your riding style and needs, I think the Ortlieb would be a good choice. They are totally waterproof and easy to mount, and reasonably priced for what they are. Plus they come in bitchin' black and yellow flavors.

Wives like to disobey the chain of command. You'll get used to it.

Sorry, Larry. It was too good to keep to myself.

The incessant forward thrusting into that blackest of tunnels was equisite.
