    You got that right! BTW Ben, what valve stack are you using on your 500? How about sag? What spring rate? Can I borrow your worn out knobby to replace my trials tire?:eek1

    Knee is decent. Got in a couple rides during holidays, One 140 miles ride from my house out toward Ft. Irwin and back. Then a brutal nine rider conga line led by my son in the local hills last friday with perfect black dirt condtions before snow hit again Saturday night. Been really cold out here , but I don't care about cold unless the wind is blowing.

    I'm riding again either tomorrow or Saturday. If I ride saturday doing a Lucerne to Landers run.

    Another Landers beatdown ride yesterday. Staged at Lucerne Valley Market, out through the hills to Rattlesnake Canyon, lots of ice on the water flows near the top, and one Texas Longhorn steer in the canyon.

    Picked up the corridor through Big Horn Mountains heading toward Landers. Lots of nice discoveries through there for later exploration. Dropped down off the mountain, rode singletrack heading toward new Dixie, then had to haul ass back to Lucerne before we lost light.

    I have a place in Landers. I'll be out there tomorrow morning, riding the area between New Dixie Mine Rd and Rattlesnake Canyon, if anyone want to meet up.
