    BTW, today's "Croom" ride was excellent. :evil

    Lots of hill climbs, bent handlebars, & the usual wankering going on. Couldn't ask for a better day. :clap

    Good to meet you LarryGee & Tazs.

    Hopefully "gramps" you know who you are didn't offend y'all at lunch.

    I know the old lady sitting behind us was. :rofl

    Most of my pics were blurry except for this one...

    Definitely a good day for a laid back ride.
    Cold this morning too!
    Good meeting you Tazs and Larry.

    Jerry fell asleep because he ate too much.
    and I'm sure he sleeps with one eye open in certain company..........

    Lyle nice to meet you. Couldn't agree more on both fronts. A great day for a calm, casual ride and I do sleep with one eye open in said "certain" company. I did wake up to Bonnie Tyler singing in the pedo van and was a little alarmed. JA was dozing off as well. A little JD rumble strip music got us both alert.

    Eloy great pic and if you posted the next in sequence it would have been of me falling down the hill with my bike chasing me. LOL

    Cheers.

    OK I'll transport the bikes to SLAP. Checking to see if Mata can get some time off; I'd like to take a week or 10 days.
    Now i just need to get moving on the SV Frakenbike.

    I already have a low mile 07 SV-650 in my possion. Although the AU frame will require some new skills If I need to weld up a PDS shock mount; the conventional layout of the rear suspension makes me think it is a better candidate for a frankenbike than the ninja.
    I still have the frame,subframe, and rear suspension from the 9 fiddy looking for a home:evil

    Does video count? :evil

    Great Day.... ride was a little out of my league but aside from a few bruises, had a blast.

    Thanks to Taz, Jerry and SF for helping pickup my bike.......again and again...

    Special thanks to SF who found my Contour after it was ripped from my helmet as my head bounced down the hill.

    Apparently it's not a good idea to throttle up when your rear end is buried and your nose is pointed straight up....:p3rry


    Where we goin' next?

    Just like someone mentioned above. You need to go out there after a good rain, its totally different with some traction.

    We tried out some Mt. Bike trails on Sun., and they were in fine condition. No sand to speak of. Strange how a pedal bike packs it down.

    Round-trip airfare to fayettville Ar.is $460 so if any of you FF want to do SLAP without the 18 hr drive I can take your bike and do the airport shuttle.
    for a SMALL FEE

    From some of the pics I've seen, the 530 would be better suited for those trails. :evil
