I finally have a day free and a bike that's ready to go, ain't wasting it!
Plan to, waiting to see if I can finish this 1st



If so, probably a road trip to the ANF for trail riding. If not, maybe MX or scramble

Elbow pads - never used them. I once had a Thor chest protector with the elbow pads attached - more PITA with the on and off than I wanted. The elbow pads really sound like a good idea but so does a neck brace and knee braces and. . .and. . .

For those of you who think it's cool to get buzzed on alcohol, my friend was just killed by a drunk driver leaving behind a husband and 2 grade schoolers.

5 friends and family dead in 2 weeks.

When does it fucking end?

Sorry to hear about your friend. Drunk drivers suck. I drink on occasion, but never behind the wheel.

My condolences on your lost friends and loved ones. I wish I knew what it would take to force us to get serious about keeping people from driving while impaired. It seems such a high price to pay and such a waste of good people's lives.

Mike, you have had it rough this year. Sorry for the loss of a friend in such a senseless manor. Maybe if you can discover why out of a family of heavy drinkers at age 30 I all but stopped drinking all together? If I could just quit smoking as easily.
