Yeah, but your "oh crap" moments make such good campfire tale material.

a bit late, and im a terribly slow learner.. Im a better rider after today though, than I was starting out this morning, maybe after 100 more days like today, Ill be totally at ease on loose gravel, and not get that panic heart stopping " oh shit" lock the brakes and stand the bike straight up thing in those loose gravel turns after a long down hill.

im learning... I do appreciate all of you guys's advice too, I listen and learn when we ride together.

she missed his drink order, then missed his food order, then everyone else had their salads, and he didnt ( he ordered the same thing..)

she did end up giving him a heart felt hug, after watching us all rag on him.

or maybe she just wanted a fat tip, who knows.

I looked up at the mountain from 295 as we passed your place (without stopping in). Looks like you've cleared more of the vegetation back.
