Fast clip all day ,everytime i would stop to catch my breath the katooms would pull right up .Took indian trail down to acton hoping to meet the crew at the hill climb but no tire tracks so we were early,great to dice in close quarters with these guys and wishing for a video camera.thanks c ya on the next one:freaky

    Wasn't feeling as lazy today....and I had a spare tube...so....no AAA....:D

    I don't know if it paranoid or prudent..but I already ordered a new front tire...just seems hard on the tire to have a blowout then run it to the side of the road when flat...makes the rubber hot to the touch....:ear

    :cry



    I didn't take many picts, but here is what I got.

    Elevator Junky on the screamin' smoker (can you find him?)... "the fool's gonna do it". :D

    [​IMG]

    Dang that's steep. :eek1
    Gettin' kinda squirrely there.
    [​IMG]

    Hmm... this doesn't look right, the bike farther up the hill than the rider. :huh
    [​IMG]

    But they were soon reunited. Bet he was glad it was a relatively lightweight 2-smoker at this point. :D
    [​IMG]

    Just to set the record straight, he cleared the hill on a 2nd run. Way to go EJ. :clap


    Sorry I didn't get all the names out there, hell of a lot of 'Zuki 400s though.

    Not sure who?
    [​IMG]

    Sopascat on full sized wheels. I think she likes it. :wink:
    [​IMG]

    SogniX on the little Yami with rather street oriented tires... no problemo. :jkam
    [​IMG]

    Bunch a damn hooligans, and this was only about half of them. :lol3
    [​IMG]

    Elevator Junky crusin' 4N24 after conquering "the HILL"... ain't nuthin' but a thang.
    [​IMG]

    Artboy, my homie from the 'hood. Just another Eagle Rawker. :super
    [​IMG]

    A little air time from the 'Zuki, sorry I missed another name... and a few more who got it levitating.
    [​IMG]

    And lastly, at least in terms of my picts, the "anti-'Zuki". A yeller one in a field of blue and white. Followed closely by Captain Kaos, Super Noob! :pynd
    [​IMG]



    Well, that's all I got, sorry I missed a few. Thanks all for comin' out and making it a fun ride. :thumb

    hopefully some of the younger riders can ride again...the conditions are perfect, and don't let it go to waste...:deal i used to hate the corners but today's different...the front tire remain planted and the rear keeps on digging.

    meantime, my old body needs to recuperate :cry


    don...those are nice pics and make good teasers....:D


    ej, thanks for the tip..the 49ers is a pretty cool joint. wait until i post the pics with the blonde bartender......:freaky

    Thank you all for having me! I had a blast! Even tho it wore me out - got home fighting leg cramps. Was supposed to go somewhere after that but had to cancel. It was worth it tho! :D



    Oh and Joel, if you still want to see my bike sleeping - this was on Oct 31st after a failed (small) hill climb:
    [​IMG]
    I know you prefer taking the pic yourself - but even with my "street" tires I was able to stay on the bike during today's ride. Sorry. :lol3
