I may be around depending on day and destination.

My poor WR needs some exercise.

Yes! Amazing watching it unfold from only several feet away. Amazement and Holy Crap at the same time! More exciting than a train wreck.

Goonie, the seriousness set in as I watched him get settled back in. If I followed closer, I would have run him over.

Yeah, swingset still has the swingset....and it's all yours if ya want it.
I do, I was waiting on my half a gooseneck to get freed up so we wouldn't have to disassemble the swingset, but it's tied up hauling grain bin parts. It should fit on my mow trailer

I was thinking thursday to cater to Mike's schedule, but I'm pretty open to Wednesday and beyond. If you want to bring out the Meef shenanigans, I'll leave the black pig at home and bring my now knobbied 250.

It was never a matter of not wanting to do it, it was a matter of making it safe and not look wreckless. Obviously I was not pushing any great speeds but I slipped up on the lack of gear.

dude, you really need a fulltime job...you've got way too much free time on your hands

the ironic thing about this moto-athlon concept is that back in the day, when ESPN was first getting started, they'd show ANYTHING that was even remotely sporting...this could have been on tv

Now on the other hand, stopping is allowed for the Olympics.

I giggled that you had a helmet on for that. If it wasnt for hot shell casings, I would ride that field naked shooting an Uzi.
