    Great fun with everyone Saturday...:wings

    Thanks Joel and everyone for putting up with us n00bs. I'd be lost out there without you guys. And your ride reports are the best!!!!!

    Our benevolent leader, Joel leading the pack to another adventure...

    Sorry for bailing out at Newcomb's, it had been a while since I had a good pig-in-dirt wrestling match, so I decided to rest a bit and tend to some business inside.:slurp

    looks like you guys had a great ride-- and another fine ride report to motivate the rest of us to get to bed earlier and wake up for the 8am start time!

    Jon ended up with 2 fractures on his upper femur. They operated tonight and hooked him up with some new titanium hardware.

    i heard about the accident from tom aka ti-d-bowl....:cry

    thanks eric for adding the pics.

    hey jon, you take care and hope your recovery will be quick and smooth :kurt. milk that situation by keeping the remote and beer :slurp within arm's reach....:D

    since you only live a few blocks from me, let me know what i can do for you...just no mowing of the lawn though, but i can take the 990 and 530 around the block and prevent the piston from seizing up...... :augie
