    NMBMN has bigger boobies but "Miami" has a bigger bootie.

    since I'm a boob man, I'll go for NMBMN.

    A trifecta of weather, weekend, and beer all came together for DV Daze. Thanks again to all that made this possible!

    I will upload more pictures when I get Mark's SD chip. Here are my shots from the iphone

    Turns out I have a fractured clavicle but I think that's about it. I had a blast riding this area with this group. The crash was 100% operator error. We came across two roads lower than the ground we were traveling on and I just got crossed up a little too much and got pitched into the ground. You can see the marks in the dirt after TravelToad picks up the camera. Better video to come once I get my marbles back in the jar. Those sand dunes were a riot and the canyon trails were a lot more entertaining than I had expected. VIVA!

    Thanks guys for keeping cool while I was out, checking on me throughout the night, helping with the pain relief, helping get my bike in the truck, AND THANKS AGAIN ROB for driving me back to our neck of the woods in my truck. That ride home was probably the scariest part of the weekend. :D Did I mention we ran out of gas before Trona?! :huh:huh:huh

    Alan and Mark are a couple of bad asses from the Bay. I'll hang with you guys any day. Thanks for sharing your camp with a stranger.

    I'm in jail Dad, and I like it here.............
    Hey Aram, I guess you just picked the wrong place to make the pass on me...............You know I was slowing down for a reason................:rofl

    Glad you're injuries are minor for that wild crash. :freaky For a few we were preparing for CPR while you were still snoring dirt. :eek1

    Let's ride when you're shoulder feels better.

    we can all now look back and laugh, but I think I was more scared than you. I'm glad you are okay, and that you and Rob somehow made it home. :lol3
    did you have your doctor check your rectum? Scorpion had sloppy fourths and tore that shit up. :ymca
