    Well you didn't do so well on guessing the first pic. The correct answer is: "The side of my pickup after the slop dried."

    On to the next pic. Guess who this is and what bike they are astride.

    The road is rocky enough for it to be Katy (liv2rydktms)or Allan ( 650x), but it isn't sttep enough and they are not going fast enough:lol3.

    How is the Alvord area in mid March. I would like to go but that is as early as I could make it ?
