GAH!

I have already spoke with this dude about that bike and I knew that when he finally put it out there for sale I would then start having a hard time letting that horse go.

chit.

Yep they looked just like that only not as bad. The deep crossings were not the mud holes buy the flowing creeks (two in all - thats four is you go back that way). Anyway it would make for a very challanging run...

I guess we are NOT going to ride today since no one else is wanting to ride early. It raining overhere right now.

Thanks to all you in the Service. Hava a great day.

Whenever I see cats like you or Mike say stuff like that I immediately think "well, if that's the case, it looks like another loop I won't be able to manage!"

...just sayin...

When Vic and Mug say it's challanging you can expect log crossings, but the trees have not fallen yet. Water crossings where you need USCG back-up. And sand that your required to have a flag on the bike.

Ahh come on. It wasnt THAT bad. First, no log crossings... oh wait, yea, never mind that one, and the water crossing was not bad at all... oh wait the Coast Guard did have divers out looking for a four wheeler, But the sand wasn't bad at all... oh wait, it was Eglin. Nevermind!!!

mossy head

We rode Mossy Head early this morning. No dust!!!! Great traction on every dr and trail we rode. Eased up to the single track and it was great, no one there but us. Looks as if no one has been riding it for awhile as we saw no fresh tracks. Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day!!! Don't forget a vet.

Thumb Im back !!!

Well I want to say I had a total blast with the crew at Hutton Sat.! After a 30 yr. layoff from enduro type bike riding I am just amazed how far bikes have come since I rode my 1977 Yamaha DT- 250 on the fire trail roads in San Diego in '79. My 1997 KTM Rx/ce felt like a Cadillac compared to way this ol fart remembers what being off road is like. Ineptzoid, good on you for making the run. To everyone else that was there, it was great meeting you and hope to see yall again real soon.
