    I call BS.
    THis stuff never happened.

    All I know is that my front tire made it farther up that hill than everybody else except the shirtless one.:deal

    True, I didn't "make it" but I was ten feet farther up than you all:freaky
    Bottom line is that there were two bikes on top of that hill and a few others that turned around:wink:


    Charles, this picture freaks me out a little bit. You definitely one that one.:deal I was done after that.
    I week later in Baja I hit my head in the same sport, went in the fetal position and could not remember my name when asked.:huh

    Here's what some of the bruising looks like. To keep this a family show, I can't show you the rest of the bruises.

    Here's a picture of Tim walking back to his bike after sizing up the hill and picking the best line to the rut with all the rocks around it.

    I think Rip Taylor's brother:ymca, the guy at the gas station who kept trying to give you first aid, wanted to treat the rest of those bruises with his special salve.

    Hope you're feeling a little better Tim.

    Nice pictures RAZR. You know I'm a professional model for that kind of carnage photography. I'm sorry I couldn't make that ride to give you some good material. Looks like some of the others stepped up their game in my absence. It's funny how the smallest hill out there caused so much trouble.

    This is MAJOR league uncool and dangerous!

    I always check my mirror and if I don't see anyone behind me, I check up until I do.

    If someone doesn't show up in 5 minutes, that "usually" means something has happened from my experience, and need to double back to find the rider(s).

    I thought we did a great job of accounting for everyone this past Sat! :clap

    exactly!:deal
    you are responsible for the guy behind you.
    no more, "I thought you went the other way" or "I heard you went that way".
    we had a hurt rider and we were trying assess(sp?) the situation until he said he was cool and we pointed him towards the highway(you could see the highway from the hill climb), then went on our way and found no one.

    :nod the wide open desert gives us the feeling of freedom and twist the throttle harder.


    well said...:deal


    the basic rule is "take care of the person behind you", maintain visual contact as much as possible, especially if there are hazards and obstacles.

    the biggest mistake is not learning from our mistakes!

    1) I thought Sat was a lot of fun, and we did a great job of keeping everyone together!

    2) Unfortuntely, in the dez, you need to get a little separation between riders due to the dust. Otherwise, that's a death wish with cross ruts, big rocks and cross traffic!

    3) Yep, if you want to haul ass do some D37 desert races, everyone is going in the same direction and the course is well marked.

    I go to the track if I want to haul ass, that's why I have an MX and sumo track bike! I don't mind riding at a decent pace, but riding "stupidly fast" on group rides is not smart!

    Don't blow this out of proportion.. First off Earl with all respect you weren't on the ride. Nobody was hauling ass or riding "stupidly fast". As a matter of fact
    When we lost the riders we were going less than 15mph. Shit happened, we failed Rzr and the other rider. We also would have not left the dez until we found them
    Period.

    Earl, your right if you want to really fly through the desert......go ride the district 37 races, thats alot of fun. I think on these rides, maybe we need to run 2 groups. 5-6 riders that have riden together and move pretty well together and another group. Have a meeting place or two along the route for the whole group. I'm happy in eithter group. I like to ride with all you knottheads :D But most important pleasure.......I mean wait for the rider behind you! :lol3
