Berkshire Trail Riders BBA

This weekend was the Big Bike Adventure (BBA) and what an adventure it was

Penny took a couple of naps on the first Hero section off of Amos Case Rd. This was the deepest I've had her buried.



After we got her out of the hole, I went for the rear brake only to have my foot keep on going. Wondering if a billet lever would have just broke off.

We picked up the rear wheel and moved it on top of the ditch, and then did the same for the front.

I should have more to post later this week.

Took the Tigers to play in the snow yesterday. This trip took 10 hours, and was about 200 miles, mostly dirt. Here is a short video...

Oh yes, we had our ladies as passengers, but they opted to walk this area because of the 30 foot drop off the edge...

Tigers playing in the mud

15 second video of our 10 hour ride last Saturday.






After a couple of months of this stuff, the clutch is fried, so time for a Barnett Kevlar clutch.
