3 big red Piggies & a big bad Wolf

Name:  PICT0152.JPG
Views: 217
Size:  114.2 KB


Three Piggies (me, dan, MSH) went on a tour, and the big bad (hick) wolf huffed and puffed and ripped trenches in the asphalt. But then one of the piggies was missing... "Did you eat the missing piggie?" queried pig-Kev... "No, No" said the Hick-Wolf, we'd better go back and look. Thinking it was a trap, the two loathsome piggies went back up the canyon, and behold, Piggie-Dan's back tire had been bitten indeed. "Let me get out my tools, and help" smiled the Hick-Wolf... just then a woman walks up with a huge purple velvet bag with a little gold string. Piggie-Kev asks her if she'd brought a big jug of Crown Royal to settle their nerves while watching the Hick-Wolf assist in repairing the bitten piggy tire... "No" she sighs, "These are my husband's ashes!" she quipped, with less annoyance then warning... after all, we were then ones accepting the graciousness of the Wolf.

Thanks GISkev for setting the whole thing up! Oh, and lest I forget, thanks Mrs GISkev for the gracious breakfast. I had a blast. Your husband rocks.

That was some good riding yesterday, thanks for taking pictures and breakfast.

I made it home in time to take my wife on a date. The Red Iguana!

Just leaving Kevs house.


Garr!!! We are a motley crew


Kev getting his helmet cam up and running. Butterfield Canyon is beautiful BTW.


I can see my house! J/k I cant. J/k I can. Man that is a big hole!


Three Pigs and a Big bad wolf. Kev tried to get in all the pictures.


Disaster strikes. We waited for Dan at the bottom of the canyon but he never showed. We doubled back to find that he had a grabbed a grabber screw in his rear. Tire that is.


Team effort! I offered moral support, wit and took photos to document who did what. Hick, Kev and Dan just did tool things.


Thanks for the hint on the rear tire lean trick.


Unfortunately, this is the end of the photo journal. We rode too hard and too fast for camera lenses to focus anyway. Thanks boys!

Matt

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement axle, hubs and rims for my trailer? The Garbage man hit my trailer and the City refuses to pay for the damages.

we hit Eureka and then Hick slabbed back to meet the wife.

Dan and i went a few miles East of Eureka then rode blind (no GPS) to Eagle Mtn City along the power lines... rutted dirt road, average speed 70mph for a big stretch... slabbed back from Eagle Mtn!

"you need a big horse to ride the west"... who said that?

Nice riding w/ ya, and nice bike!

This road? If so, it's Utah's version of Baja.

Doing an all day, maybe into the dark, loop on friday. Looking for someone to ride with. Non-technical, dirt/gravel/salt.

Trailer

Hick
Let me know if you need any welding done on that there trailer of yours. Kinda worried about the Garbage truck vs. the trailer incident.
I think parts are usually cheaper if you buy a complete axel set with springs and hangers rather than individually at henderson.
