Pictures from today's ride. Sorry there are no pictures of the good stuff. Anyone who has ridden with Mike knows stops are few and far between. I did manage to ride 183 miles today the vast majority of which was dirt. Even rode some single track worthy of a mountain bike.

Alan and I met in Asheville at 0845, he was on time incidentally, although he did need fuel but we had time to spare. Met the rest of the gang in Trust, NC @ 0930. Headed off like we were going to ride Hurricane then took a few detours. Got home at 5:30 (1730 for those that want military time). It was hot and dusty. I drank three liters of water and another of Gatorade. Still have not peed. Oh the cast was Rabbot, ktmMike, 400PSI, Grizzlyman, _anatic, Bugsplat, one more but sorry I don't know your screed name. Worst part of that is I need to PM to get the GPS file from you. Guess I'll just see you at the Wedge. Except for a brief wrenching session on Mikes bike, no spark and Allen center punching his knee the day went without incident. Allen blew us all of in Hartford to rush his pansy a$$ home for a date with a hiking group. Yeah Right! Is that what they call it now. Mike led us back up into the high country after lunch and then spilt off someplace just past Rattlesnake Gap. That is where _anatic, who was the voluntary dust eater all day uncorked his bike and led us down off the mountain into Spring Creek/Trust area. He hung back all day and pretended he had a broken wing then rode like a Kamikaze down that mountain and left us all in his dust. once back on the main road the rest of the group detoured to _anatic's house for ??? a beer or ten I suspect, while I made my way back to Ashevegas alone. Great ride, Awesome group. Can't wait to ride with you all again.









Hope that worked.

Both the orange and the green wires INSIDE the key switch had broken loose at their solder joints.

Thanks for the help, Guys.

Sorry, didn't see this in time. Still don't have internet at the new place. We had a great ride though. No pics this time, my camera was acting up.

This was so good, I'm thinking I'll just follow Mike Saturday, but since he's got to work Friday put me down for a ride leaving at 9:30. If you want, make the pointer go to post #7 so it's on the 1st page.

Ran out of Ben Gay Saturday night. Going to try to make your Saturday ride. Hope to bring Carmen. Finish at Ricks Cabin if that happens.
