    Arg Arg Arg... you so funny... :poser

    Yes I have ridden them... don't like em much... but I do buy 5 or 6 every year from Cycle Smiths and donate them to Chris at Stewards to be given away in their annual raffle to you guys. I am buying trails tire offsets you see... LOL

    Yeah I haven't been riding nearly as much as I would like since moving home and business out here last year... BUT got a full week in Ocotilllo next week... and the new year looks to be good for me to get back on the bike a lot more.:clap

    But I still have a lot more miles on my bikes than most posers. :rayof

    Anyway... thanks again for the pics... helps us guys stuck on the computer enjoy the day. Funny, you must not be riding either... since we both have exactly 559 posts as of today. And I have been here 3 years LONGER than you. Maybe I should be posting pictures for you ! :wave

    Hmmmm.

    I ride 12-15 times a year and have very few posts on any forum. Does that make me a poser?, squid? noob? Come on help me out here. lol

    I heard a funny line recently- "See you at the Bottom" Yep next time I'll sign my name on your back fender with a marks-a-lot. :rofl

    12-15? You need to quit that day job! They must be quality rides 'cause you were barking at my fender :D but then again, I am a noob squid.

    Just funnin ya Jungle:beer 10-15 times a year is about right and don't get me started on suspension set up.:rofl

    Next time I won't have my boy along and we can just keep "exploring" those cow tracks we were following. He is a very good rider but doesn't like that particular stuff.

    New years I hope to doing a day trip to Mojave.

    Well since you asked... I've always thought you were someone to be admired... do more than say... ride better than most... give when something worth while crossed your path.... and back it all up with a smart ass sense of humor in proper doses. :rofl

    So what was your point ? :ear

    My point? I don't have one just about like 99.99% of all this garble on the internet.

    I come here to read some funny shiatt and unwind from the real world. I'm never let down BTW. I can't remember the last time I had to go to the ER after an internet ass whoopin" lol

    We need to get together and ride Jeff it's been a while. Probably leave that nasty goat out though.

    4-6 days per month is for pussies ! I ride almost that much now and I am apologizing for it... :lol3

    You pick up your life and business and move out here totally off grid to an old horse ranch, build a warehouse... remodel an old house... 3 out of state funerals... time with out of state Dad with the big C... all in 14 months and see how much time you have for picture posting. Just getting on the bike has been a challenge.

    Anyway... shin kicking aside... I expect a great year of riding in 2013.. have some fun plans coming for this old horse ranch converted to dirt bike ranch for me and my friends... hopefully you'll come join us for some riding AND after riding fun ! :clap

    :roflSuspension posts for me = zero Here's the secret, ssshhh, bone stock, springs, clickers, sag tish, tish. I just push out the dealer door and ride. I don't touch chit, nada, nuthin'. Been doing that way for years.

    The goat on the other hand....

    I'm sure there was cost and Javi definately put in a lot of work cooking it, but that was nasty. BTW I had German Shepard several times and that was not German Shepard.

    Ride this weekend? I wish, but I've already used up my 15:1drink

    Have fun, stay reasonably safe, and Merry Christmas to everyone.
