Squamish maybe more palatable name than our old name from college days, for scrambled eggs, any kind of whatever you have, and cheese - 'schmegma'.

Here're a couple more.

The Ledge

That was probably a good choice not continuing if you did not like the looks of that ledge.There are places that are much more difficult on the rest of the trail.Your bikes clutch and plastic thank you.

I've done it three times on a trials bike. It's fun on one of those. I've watched the "Enduro"crowd
suffer through it. Mung is so right about the clutch thing. Those guys just looked miserable as
the bike either wheelied over or spun out and slid down a rocky hill.

On a side note that's why I sold my trials bikes. Even though they handled the trail better than
any bike I can think could, I vapor locked twice out there. I honestly was having the "Your going
to have to be the man of the house" talk with my son because I didn't think I would make it out.
Had a full medical check up after and they couldn't find a reason.

Started to feel it coming on again at a trials event and that did it. Too bad, those bikes are
so much fun too.

You just need a different trials bike. I've never had vapor lock.

Not the bike. ME. For whatever reason I would get really sick and more exhuasted
than I'd ever been in my life. No explanation for it. Blood tests, treadmill, cardio crap,
the docs had no clue what caused it. Since I've stopped riding trials I've not had another
incident.

Probably needed your prostrate checked.... to make sure you have one.


Your son said you were being a pussy out there.

It's just cause your old. Or it was fuel starvation from spending too much time on the rear wheel.

Probably had an acute vaginoma that spontaneously resolved when you got back on the KLR.

I may not be old like you... But at 50 I think I know a prostrate massage from a KTM seat.

I just did a chode-emenectemy (sp? Tracky?) on my Wee Strom seat... cut the foam out where it counts,,, modeled after my mtn bike seat. best mod yet! I got scared from reading about what poor seat design did to Pluric and took a pre-emptive strike!
