    ^^ I keep them in my gear-bag. Great for sweat under the goggles.

    I also carry wet wipes in my backpack. And a dab of Vaseline in the crack pre-ride keeps the bung hole happy. Just no double dipping.

    ¿?????¿?

    my guess is your maxi pads are stale by now.

    your wet ones are dry.

    and your Vaseline is out of date unless you're using it for other stuff also.

    Out for a ride today, ran across a little taco shop off of hwy 18 in Henry, run by a very nice, very not-Mexican lady. I recommend the fish tacos.

    Planning to ride DR350 over to my brother's property near the Moon Glo in Danville tomorrow around noon. Then will be riding woods on YZ250 while there, and then riding back on DR350 around 4.

    Any are welcome to tag along. You can try the YZ if you like. It is a plus if you also enjoy chainsaws and making new trails and hillclimbs :D

    Fat man scrub. It ain't a pretty sight is it?

    Scrubbin to the right to get the line in the next turn.

    Right after this I put a textbook pass on that KDX. Took him wide, put an elbow on him, and put him in the banners. Right in front of everyone.

    I think I have been carrying some pent up aggression lately...:bash

    Lookin good BBF, that xr200 never knew what hit him.

    Glad you came out this weekend. My camera had mud on it for the first 45 min of the race, so the upcoming vid will have a bit of a "theater of the mind" feel haha

    Heading over to my brother's property again today. New trail and another hill section cleared yesterday... next step, marking and adjusting the trails to make the longest possible contiguous loop :clap

    Quick report from the MWXC/MAXC hare scramble this weekend.

    He kept saying he hated mud and wouldn't ride if he saw any. He said it so many times, I almost believed him.

    I rolled to the line in my vintage gear, and to borrow a phrase from Crash217 in the Oklahoma racing thread: "All the old dudes were sportin more wood than a lumber yard as I rolled up and the ladies didn&#8217;t get it."

    [​IMG]


    The first hill was a disaster, guys were falling over and failing all over the place. Not one to stick out :lol3 I quickly followed suit.

    ^^^ Much better angle of the Fat Man! I knew scrubbed that thing, or at least it felt like it.

    Looks good don't he? Especially for being on the couch for 6 years, eating banana Twinkies.

    You also believed I was going to ride that big pig Husky in the mud at KZ last fall. With who knows what kind of tires on it.

    Thanks again for getting me out of the house, I had a blast, until I got knocked out anyway. Fucking C riders. Maybe it was that guy I flipped off paying me back.

    The bike had brand new tires, t63 up front and an AC10 starcross in back!

    But glad you made it out. Let's see a pic of the hardware!
