Much better! Both me and the bike have been washed, fuel tanks filled and put away for the night....one of us had some Motrin and Woodford Reserve too! That was a lot of fun, thanks John and everyone who came along!

Just my luck, out of the many nasty, deep, slippery mud pits that I successfully traversed today, Chuck manages to get that one and it's already here and on Facebook!

mud Ride Video

Hey Eddy
I hate to tell you but when you get up in the morning, go look at your bike. Its not going to be clean. All the white milky spots will still be there. How did you know I was on the phone when I was going through that mud puddle?

Great pics guys. This will be one trip to remember. Im trying to put together one video to music. May or may not get it done tonight. Lots of good stuff. Hey Jeremy. Was your GoPro on when you took the dirt nap? If so that should be a good one.

Vario side case attachment scheme.



Mud ride mishap, as Mike mentioned I did a 720 degree pirouette and busted off the ears that hold the vario to the bike. Bummer.

You guys looked like you had a lot of fun today. Maybe next time you can invite the "Lone Wolf". He's posted on Craigslist that he's looking for fellow riders.

Thanks Chuck, that was great, good choice of music! LOL! I'm convinced that you are nuts hauling ass though the slop and turns like you did. I kept it slow and safe watching out for more hunters in pick-ups coming at us head on!

Unfortunately, after leaving you guys, I still got a "brake failure" warning all the way home, I need to get the manual out. It should have reset itself after I took the keys out and restarted it...

Wow! Sorry I missed it, but watching this was great. I've often other people's ride clips and tried to imagine what the roads or trails really looked like. At least in this case I did the inagural run there and know the trails. Including the exact "puddles" where you guys (or I) went down.

Chuck, you're the Scorcese of ADV!

Hey VACOMMUTER

Sorry, I forgot your real-world name. Too many new folks to me yesterday.

Where did you get that tank bag again? You said "someone in West VA". Got an address/email? Do they come in anything other than olive drab?

Thanks!

Yes. It would be great to see all that chrome on his cruiser caked in mud.

Me thinks the quest for a "Group Buy" may be in the works.

Hey John ...

How's the knee this morning? A night's rest make it better?
