    I found the hidden barbed wire and cut it out of the way for the ridders behind me (and cut it from wrapped around my back wheel) so it couldn't of been from that.

    What a great ride! Looking forward to the next one. I may have to not drink as much the night before with Moose next year...

    Had a great time on my first return to Morrison in 23 years! My Bultaco finished the course with ease this time. No green arrows by the way. I met two cool guys at the gas stop on KDX's. And met up with them again later on the course. On the way home, I wanted to avoid the interstate and find a little bar to chow and watch the Bears game. I went to Dad's Bar in Polo. The place is nearly deserted except for two guys....It was the KDX guys again! Had a great ride and made two new friends. Thanks Brushpoppers.

    I was walking in the pits in the morning when two guys, spotted an old bike they were saying "what is that? are they going to ride that? I thought to myself, well it's a Bultaco Frontera of course. :D

    Add the fact that Clint is way older than the bike and it becomes quite alarming.

    Brushpoppers best ever ride! Thanks Terry, Jack, and all the Brushpoppers were ever you are! :clap:clap:clap:clap:clap

    Who ever finds the black bag with KTM tools, it's mine. One more bump and my wallet would have joined it, just another senior moment.

    Well, I'm a little picky on who I call my friends. Pretend you don't know me.

    Yep, me too. The instructions were, "Go slow and steady". What was NOT mentioned is that as you drop onto the bridge, it starts it a-movin'. By the time I was about 2/3rds across, it was wild, I dabbed a foot while still fixating on the end (trying NOT to picture myself either tangled in the side-wire or, worse yet, in the drink.

    A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to the whole Brushpoppers Community: the Club, the Land Owners, the Volunteers, everyone who made the day happen. Thanks for your work in creating the opportunity for us to go out and recreate in the fashion in which we love.

    I never got instructed.
    Went way too fast but never dabbed as my pucker was too tight to think about it. :lol3
