    lil' bikes or big bikes?
    perhaps a better question is," will this be all fire roads Matt?"

    I plan to be on my 525, but most likely all fire roads, so big-bikes should be fine :nod

    Here's the ride report:
    We rode all over Baldy Mesa up, then down, then across, we ate at the Summit Inn, then we rode down, we rode up, we rode down again, then we rode home. Oh yah, once Sideways bailed, Earl, Matt and I rode some really fun single track. Oh, and I fell twice, once standing still, once going down a pretty steep sandy single track. I'm the only one that dropped his bike. As usual.

    The highlight was Sideways two up with his wife on that 990R - he can really handle that thing - his wife, Linda, is either totally cool or totally crazy. I suspect the former because she really was totally cool and the two of them together are like peanut butter and jelly. Great to witness. Now I want a divorce.

    As we can all see from far and wide, there is NO snow anywhere in them there hills. :cry

    Thanks for the great ride guys and gal! See you soon I hope.

    Hey guys :wave

    Back from Brazil and ready to ride :ricky

    Tomorrow morning (sun 2/9), 9am at the Lytle Creek Chevron.
    Might do something different, a little more mountains, a little less desert.
    Hoping there might still be a little moisture in the ground from recent weather.
