Yea, like I'm waiting for that pic to be posted!! Don't ask me how I managed to stay vertical while the bike went down. It was all a flash, Chad started it all, I had to glance at up and only to see you go down, it was a domino affect.

How's the hand doing?

Additional photos posted.

Here are some more. I'm beginning to detect a pattern in my photos. If you want me to photograph you in the future, crash in front of me.

Help, I've fallen and I can't get up.

When I asked about picking this bike up after a fall they told me to lift with the legs. They just didn't tell me I'd need 4 of them.

Well it worked didn't it? You're a great rider and that slippery mud covered embedded branch was an accident waiting to happen, just glad nothing broke

Here are a couple untill I can get a ride report put out.

Here we are sitting on White pass starting to get the gear on because it was geting real cold and starting to sprinkle again

Here I am with Mt St Helens in the back ground.

Stosh with the offical Advrider salute. With a salute like that you can tell he is x-military

And we have Matt the studly adventurer that he is. Matt was having to beat the women off with a stick when they found out he was riding the Transalp.

Mt St Helens in the back ground.
The Green Hornet walking off to pollenate the wild flowers.

Yea I know what your thinking but the bottle of water did stay on for the whole ride.

Just a peak of Rainier through the trees.

Well more to come time to hit the hay. I broke down and got a smugmug account so I don't have to do the link thing, I think it looks way better.

I just cleaned the bike....scratched all to shit...oh well. I might go get my ribs x-rayed tomorrow. Something's crunching around and seems to be gettin' worse. I think I hit something under the mud on that down.. Im wishin' I had your armor setup Darin.

Oh well, it was damned fun

Im still damned if I know how that happened. One minute Im looking straight up into the sky the next im coming down hard and sliding. Then I get up and see you laying on your side too and all the rest of those buggers sitting on the nice wooden bridge spectating! I hear Tony has a picture of it (uh oh).

Thanks for helping me pick up though fellas.


I like Mud.

Tony, I pressure washed the bike tonight. White plastic looks like crap now. Erin's black DRZ sure looks good. Hmmmm....somebody say "Krylon"??

Next time, next time.....

you mean you were actually clean enough to make yourself sick???

Funny Rocks.

This panorama was stitched together from 4 photographs. It is the view looking down from the top of Funny Rocks. Next time we'll get motorcycles in the photo.

Sorry that "Yota" and myself were not able to make it. Looks like you all had a great time. From the sounds of it, maybe I am glad that I didn't make it. I'm still pretty fresh with my skill level in the dirt, especially on my F650. Only been on dirt roads once with it.

Love the pictures, they are super.
