    Took a short solo ride yesterday down to the Carson River and around Indian Valley Reservoir which is closed due to the Government Shut down. Weather was perfect and all the leaves are making for a perfect SMALL window to ride.

    Great ride in Hungry Valley last weekend, small turnout so we worked on some technical drills and chatted it up a bit.

    Anyone wanna ride on Sunday? Same time, same place (estates rd. @ 9am)

    Anybody have a friend with a lathe? need a specialty fastener made. 10x1.25 OD 6x1.00 ID 24mm long. Only need one, but could get a few made if the price is right. It's to put my motor back together "correctly."

    Oh sure, NOW you want to ride. I am getting snipped tomorrow so I will be out this weekend (unless I'm feeling ok and I will give it a shot!!)

    Wait.... snipped? You need recovery time for a haircut? Did it mean that much to you?

    Hahah, snipped as in ending the family line with my only son...or as the guys at work call it: getting the power shut off. I want to say that I will be able to ride by Sunday, but the doctor says don't even think about it. Maybe I will be game if I can swing my leg over the seat.

    Oh hell, i wouldn't even think about it man. I can think of too many complications that we wouldn't want to deal with in the field.

    If your curious about how big a sack can swell, go ride. All I did was go to work the next day after mine building a deck. Made it till noon until my balls ached so bad I had all I could do to get into my truck and go home. Spent the rest of the day in the recliner with a big ice pack. Doc told me to take it easy but I didn't listen.

    OK, I'll probably go out for a big bike ride tomorrow. Maybe easy dirt out to pyramid lake and slab it back.
    10am-ish if it's not snowing and back in town by 1-2
