You guys left just before the Shells Angels rode down all loud and proud.
What's this about the crying?

At one point they were all looking back at us, or across the street. No idea what that was about. I turned around and couldn't figure it out.

I was sitting a long the railing with my back to the action most of the time. Otherwise I stay fairly distracted most of the time for obvious reasons.

We'll schedule a new meeting maybe this week if weather permits prior to the long weekend.

Not really the same boat, but I'd sooner be riding too this weekend, instead I've put in over 10 hours under my truck already rust proofing the frame.. Not fun work. I have at least another 8-10 more before Sunday night.

Too Bad, you would have liked the last bit of the ride. It started with a "let's see where this goes...." Had to wait, and enjoyed watching, some 4X4 guys getting stuck and unstuck along the trail. You would have approved of the mud. The bike is no longer shiny.



















Thanks Warren and Ian for the great ride and company!

I gotta say you're a brave and talented guy to be tackling the trails, mud and trees on that big KTM.

Or maybe just crazy! But when in doubt, I'll take it as a compliment. Thanks Ian.

I made a point of letting you pick the trails since you had the big bike. I was surprised how tricky they got too. Way to throw that big ktm around. If anyone doubts how dirty you got it you can show your picture.

Thank you for leading the way to a fun ride.

My pleasure, although it was a good thing Ian had the McLean trails on his GPS, since mine was just doing the Tron thing.

I washed it today the fun way, albeit less than fully effective;

I took a few more passes, but they hit the editing room floor (so to speak).

Great pics! I recognize the Water Valley store since its not too far from where I am in Didsbury. I've done a bit of riding west from there to the trunk road and south, some of it in the rain and mud. Great fun! Where where you when you took the pics! Unfortunately, I missed a great weekend for riding due to other commitments - being married can cut into riding time...

Great ride with Hochtouren yesterday. Powderface to Canmore and over to Water Valley on mostly back roads. Came in to Calgary by Symons Valley and headed south to get home. Beauty day!

I had a really nice ride up to Limestone Mountain. Early morning departure resulted in some really nice light:



I took back roads up north of Water Valley then zipped across to the FTR. Google maps was way off with distance though so after getting to the top, I had to backtrack to the gas station back at the bridge on the FTR, then over to Sundry and home.

I enjoyed the rock garden. I'm still having troubles letting go of how I'd ride the XRR though as I zipped through the rock garden in 3rd gear. What a riot.

I got to the top and parked to enjoy the fantastic view and got a call from my wife telling me that she was in the midst of putting our Chocolate Lab Ringo to sleep.

My stay at the top was brief. He was my best friend and will be missed. Anyway,my struggle with a name for the bike is no longer.

Allow me to introduce you to Ringo and I:
