Just sang that to my wife, she's looking at me like I'm nuts, so, everything's normal here.

I had a great ride as well, 82 miles worth of back roads, creek crossings, gravel, Rocky climbs, train track bridges, brunch at Grand Junction, saw a 3 legged dog, and lost a license plate screw somewhere along the way.



FWIW, I had the exact same idea for the new tag spot. Good call dude.

Randy sure is riding a FINE looking weeStrom . Ain't Grand Junction a great place? Met a few of the KTM guys out there for lunch two weeks ago. Too bad they paved so much of Rt. 640 between there and 641, SST and I used to routinely hit Grand Junction for lunch rides from E'ville through there for a nice gravel fix.
Warning - my son is bringing me back my 'Stich heated vest, Randy has kindly offered to lend me back some of my old gear and I'm looking at bikes again...

You just get out of that garage Grandpa, there's riding to do.

The little "green" brain is at another albemarle park. You can launch a boat, hike, play with your dog. I even saw a hot air balloon launch from here a few days ago. There is dog park but the brain is not near it.

We rode out onto a pier.

Then took the brain and hid him where I stand in this picture. Hard to see me with the sun setting.

He is safely tucked in here with a big leaf in front of him


Have fun! Ride out on the pier to get the same picture

Right on tuff stuff. I figured I'd get Bruced twice if I headed out to the nut (as us disc golfers like to call it) and I was right!

Can't wait to find out where I'm riding Sunday morning.

I changed the lyrics on the last line a bit...

Good job everyone!

I was pretty sure we would get bruced on this one since everyone was out riding today. We should have all met up somewhere!

Ha! I was pretty sure I would get Bruced today since I had the farthest to travel and didn't exactly get an early start...

But a good day for all I think.

We're heading after the Brain today. Waiting for it to warm up a few more degrees.

This spot is on my way to work, and after a busy morning of tagging in the valley before my 1-9 shift today, I figured I'd stop in and see The Brain, since I missed him yesterday.

Looks like I wasn't the only one to do this, ha!





And when I got to work two minutes later it was starting to rain. Better hurry buckaroo!

Won't be heading out today. Battery is stone dead. Even though I had a trickle charger on it.
Going to order a Shorai for it this week.
Yal' have fun

Hilarious! Love the note.

We got geared up to ride and walked outside into the rain so changed our minds and took the jeep out for a ride up snow mountain today. Getting colder out there
