I was trying to count the number of landings on the way up the rock. I think I stopped after 30

That supermoto looked like a blast. Now go vomit so you can feel better and enjoy the rest of the night's festivities.

Great RR...Merry Christmas!

Wink Merry Christmas Bryce.

Merry Christmas Bryce. You've traveled quit a way since HU Mtg in Cambria. Keep it up!

PS - After riding that KTM 990 you want to reconsider your prior remarks about our "big" BMW's? :) Have a happy holiday and a safe journey.

Cool you went to Big Ass Rock. Neat place. Yeah I bet Al can really fly on the SM. Hell he was pretty fast on the adventure, we were passing FZ1's yellow lining it in pretty good traffic.

2 feet of new snow in AK today. Not that I'm complaining, time to break out the snow machine and try to kill myself properly.

Feliz Navidad cabron!

Up until this point, I haven't realized how terrible the motorcycles I've been riding are. Getting on this thing was like switching from a Model T to a Corvette. Holy cow! Hot damn! The throttle is super responsive and snappy, the brembo brakes stop on a dime, and the whole bike turns so fast it's unbelievable! Jumping on a modern liquid cooled, twin cylinder, fuel injected bike was a huge difference from my poor thumper. Wow. I want one!

P.S. I'm going to go be sick now.


It sounds like you may have contacted the highly contagious Orange bug. I hope your feeling better, if not you might ask Al about another ride on the 990!

Merry Christmas from Central Oregon!

I'd be sure and stay around Medellin until the weekend and go eat some Fuking Good Ribs at Mu a nice place right down from the Shamrock and the best pork ribs in all of Colombia and probably SA. Tons of nice day trips outside of Medellin to have fun with. That was my favorite city in Colombia

To wet you palate after you get rid of the bug.
Me, Crashy, and Adam Lewis chopping on some fine foods:


Merry Christmas, you're spending it in a damn fine place
I go look up Mike from Motolombia for a great place for xmas dinner, he's got a great crash pad up on the side of the mountain in Medellin if he's in town.

I'm riding a 99 XRL with several mods, low miles, but well used and loved. One day I'll point it toward the border.

If you make it here, we'll ride! I know some great trails/roads. In the meantime, have the time of your life down there.
Awesome man! I'm already planning on coming out to Colorado this summer for a few weeks (if I can raise the money) so I'll certainly hit you up!

Bryce,

I tried to get you to try the Multi before you left...... .. don't get stuck on orange yet. Saw your folks and Gramma @ church last evening. Merry Christmas, and lot's of prayers headed your way.

Ride safe, Scott.

Yeah, I guess it looks pretty similar, although bubbletron told me that you had an actual dock for the embark process, so I'm still a little bit bitter about that. Bubbletron and that younger guy on the 1200 made it down here yesterday, we had a little christmas eve party last night. Merry Christmas to you tambien!

Ughh....I think it laid eggs in my stomach....luckily I haven't puked yet. I'm so jealous of the KTM's now. I want one so bad. I'm considering selling my harley for one.....

So, when are you going to show us some pictures of the new surgeries?
