    Yep, it was a good ride. I don't know why, I was NOT feeling it all morning long, just really felt out of it all day, but I still had a ton of fun.


    That new pavement is great.

    Really nice to meet Mike, Mike and Barry today!

    I left this AM before the sun came up, and got back after it went down. Fantastic day!

    I have always bragged that I don't have flats, I guess I was due. Heavy Duty tubes and 30 psi is not enough to stop a peice of barb wire. Sorry for the delay, guys.

    I hope someone took a picture of the waitress at lunch. I also hope PsyChem got her #! (she was a cutie!)

    Great ride today, we need to plan to spend a long weekend up there this spring. Great to meet two Mikes and a Barry. TM, SS, & 2fast, we gotta do that more often.

    Glad you made it home with no further issues Troy. No worries on the wait, glad you were able to keep riding it.

    Troy, when we were on Highway 48/13, right about Hawkins Road, this bird almost flew right into you. It shot out into the road from the right side, and pull up RIGHT as it got to you, did you see it? It was pretty crazy looking for behind you.

    Thanks all for the best day I've had riding a motorcycle yet! I can't wait to do more days like this in the future. This is the only picture I managed today on my phone when we were sitting around:

    [​IMG]

    And here are the 2 videos I got from my helmet cam before the incident that snapped it off of my helmet mount.....Thanks to Jeff for helping me retrieve it!

    Just the gravel road section in the beginning (Barry is in front of me and Jeff is in the rearview on that crazy machine of his):

    And the one you all really wanted to see...:

    <object width="560" height="315"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/YFEazQBxSiI?hl=en_US&amp;version=3"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/YFEazQBxSiI?hl=en_US&amp;version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="560" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

    Special thanks to Mike for using his foot to push my rear brake lever back into place after it wrapped back around the footpeg from that.....

    And I swear I am tempted to go back to that restaurant tomorrow and try to get her number just because now I feel like I let you all down! We shall see what happens...I'll keep you all posted.

    Glad you were OK on that get-off.....looks like you had a little bit of speed going :eek1.

    And of course Baha Doug was nowhere to be found, he was too busy getting something to eat:

    It was my first time riding in real mud I believe. Like I said to the guys there today, I feel like I learned more today than I did in the 6 months I've been riding. Definitely off-road but even on just seeing other people take corners quick gave me more confidence that the bike would hold and allowed me to improve the feel.

    GREAT DAY OF RIDING! 167 mile day for me. Kept it on two wheels all day, much to my surprise. It was SOOOO cold when I left the house I serriously considered turning back after 3 miles, glad I stuck it out & met up with you guys. Best day of riding in months & can't wait to do it again.

    I've got to put the skeleton door back on my gopro housing because the wind shear was so bad on my video that it made the footage an endurance exercise to watch. I'll put some of it to music & post later.

    I'm really bad about remembering to take pictures, but I have an excuse this time. I gave Troy my SD card for his GoPro, hopefully he got some good footage.

    Sorry, no pics or video. I think I forgot how to use the GoPro. I could not get it to stay on.

    But I did gain a 2 gig SD card somehow :D

    I normally carry my camera around my neck and snap pics as I go. But, with winter gloves and bouncing around off road, I never bothered to take it out of my pack.

    We'll just have to do another ride and make sure to take more pics next time.....

    Well Barry had a GoPro on....it's almost like the world conspired against us to not take pictures. No memory cards, crashing into the ground and breaking it off a helmet, cold weather....I guess it will forever be one of those rides you'll understand if you were there...YOU HAD TO BE THERE MANNNNNNN!!
