    I hear the sore part. I just got out of the Hot Tub again. I wound up with the mother of all leg cramps last night. That friggen crusty snow hiding all the evil angled tractionless logs and sticks gave me a major workout. If you got a bit crossed up and put a foot down the crust grabbed your foot and tried to rip your leg off. Momentum was the hot ticket. Feet up and cruizin was a lot better until you hit something that slowed you down. Then it was feet down and flail. I made it over the big root wad unassisted. Kind of do or die. I was tired enough that I didn't want to wrassle the red pig anymore. I liked Ryans attempt. The last thing he said before he let the clutch out was " This is a bad idea". Too bad none of us had our cameras out there. The extra lighting on the XR worked great once the Sun gave up on us.

    I hurt all over!
    legs are sore, back is killing me.
    Both hips feel like they were yanked out of the sockets.
    Arms feel like I ran a jackhammer all day,not just fighting handlebars in the snow.
    Left shoulder woke me up repeatedly, and is in total revolt today,,arm sling and Ibuprofen!:lol3
    yep,, the look of concern was the thought of dying up there from a heart attack!:huh

    Yep. However, I listed to your advise and all went smoothly. The mud on TIMS bike was free of charge. YOU GUYS ARE NUTS!!!! That was an awesome ride. Thank you again for the loaner bike. Had a great time.

    So did anybody else ride today? I gave up waiting and headed out on my own to shake down one of our newly acquired CT90's . It was a nice crisp beautiful ride right up until the large cloud of smoke and total flameout. That is when the pushing part of the program began.

    I did a 200 mile +/- run yesterday. It was cold. It was wet... And due to two wonderfully crazy people driving Infinitys it was one of the best rides in recent memory. 95 -100 in the twisty bits 85 on the straight bits.

    I LOVE my heated Jacket and Heated gloves. :ricky

    I went out on a hour long with Rob on single track trails(he made most of them, try to keep up with him) behind his house on our CRF450Xs. We left at 2pm and there was still ice on some of the trails, Mostly 1st and 2 gear, it was a slimy slippery leaf covered go sideways mud fest blast. We plan to do it again this weekend, Anyone want to join us?

    We did the right thing by going Sunday. Monday it rained all day here with snow mixed in. Today was frozen,foggy and had a strong north wind to start the day. The sun broke through for the last half of the day but it never warmed up.

    Lights have arrived.

    I am going to bring a few sets tonight to the Pad if anyone wants to purchase a set or check them out. Look forward to seeing everyone.
