Great looking area, Been working on Bill T to push the vintage group to start a series. OK is a bit out of our area. Would love to come for a SW event though.

Work on the 2014 MWVTA has....

Begun!






You wanted it? Well, you got it. Experts only!!




All this was just Saturday. After ribboning 4 sections, it was time to go to work. The rain was moving in, so better split some firewood -






This is real Trials. A beer, an axe, and a Pablo Cruise T-shirt!!!




The rain started right about dinnertime, with all the ribbon work done -




but did not spoil our Trials dinner. Chili dogs, courtesy of Miss Bitters!




Dinner done, rain gone, it was time for Big Stories around the fire.

Once again, this is real Trials. Friends around the campfire, in a firepit made from an old 55-gallon drum of Honda GN2 oil, drinking beer and telling old Trials stories, wearing jackets bearing allegiance to motorcycle manufactures that maybe only about 1% of the American Motorcycling Public will ever recognize -




Next morning, back to work!




And at the end of the day, the BS session is in full swing!





Our season opener is next weekend. Who's in??

Love San Yo, Great sections, Now that the 80 boys have moved up to expert I see you have tailored the sections just for them.

9 Sections set for Saturday. (Hopefully Ron S. will find #10) About a 3 mile loop, mainly single track.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

Opening round, as told by The League -

The weekend started off well. I dragged old OJ off the porch to act as a work mule this weekend -



Hmmm, I had not started, washed, nor even paid any attention to the old crock since Roswell last November. Some Haystack mud still clinged to the skidplate -




Loading up, rarin' to go!!!




Arrive, do some cleanup on the loop and sections, hang out with old friends, and...

Campfire!!!




Got up Saturday morning to discover a flat tire on the Team bike.

I had noticed it the night before, and texted Hammer to save the day. He came through with a new tube, installed right before the horn sounded for Saturday's Trial. Not a good way to start the day -




Stupid cheap-assed Chen Shin tubes really ought to last more than 5 years anyway. I'm gonna fire off an angry e-mail....




The Team bike did get a new plate just for this season, courtesy of The Hammer -



The League. 'Nuff said!

Signup, with an old twist -



Yup, Hammer sportin' da dreads!!

Day One. Some Carnage.


We are not even to our first section when this happens to Yosemite's TY -






Yowza! A quickie fix, and we are on our way to our first section! Go get 'em!!!




Oh, this is gonna be a long day!!!



Some random shots of day one -

Boss Lady, who drew the short straw to ride with us Goofballs -








Yosemite -








Hammer -








Yours Truly -








Ah, young love between TY80's -




Hey baby! Remember when we did this on the way to Sturgis on our first TY80?






Day one ended with a killer feed put on by Old Geezer and his teenage bride , with the storms moving in. Wind, rain, hail, sleet, locusts, plague, et al came in Saturday evening. After the worst part had moved on, it was an early night for the campfire kids.


Sunday. More Carnage!!

The wind had blown hard all night, but at least it rained too! We're not afraid, it's time to go ride!!

Oh wait, a flat on Yosemite's bike, and the pipe had come adrift on the Team TY!!

The Fred Flintstone tools did not work on the pipe -






So Yosemite Matt went back to camp for some slime and tools. I did not get a shot of Yosemite sliming the rear tire of his TY, but did get a shot of Hammer fixing the Team TY -



Gonna be a long day....

We had an interloper join in on the TY festivities. JB Brown -






Hammer -








Yosemite -






Boss Lady -









Hey Yosemite! How well does that bike run again? -






We fought rain, hail, and snow all day long. This loomed on the horizon most of the day -





But we don't care, for we are...

The League!!









At the end of the day, I had a really bad get-off on the loop to section 8. Over the bars, bashed in the fuel tank, and broke a fin off of the new cylinder head -







The nasty weather continued on the way home, but at least it was a tail wind!!






Battered, bruised, and scarred, The League will be back!




More to come...

Looks like you guys are having way to much fun out there. Kinda makes me think about moving to Alba-turkey.
