    Sounds like fun, another time though. A bunch of us are riding Sasquachie Valley tomorrow (mostly trails from what I hear).

    And don't be stingy with the pictures. I have to ride vicariously for a while. The DRZ is coming apart tomorrow. And the dang Hawk needs a battery.

    NEW BIKE!

    [​IMG]

    Picked it up today with ThreadKiller. 2003 KDX 200 w/ MX suspension, Gnarly pipe (with 2 exhausts), extra plastics, and handguards. Only 1400 too (TK said he would have went lower, but I am not a master negotiator yet). I need to redo the suspension probably (it's really stiff for someone my size) and a few other things but I can't wait to take it on the trails!

    It came with some FRONT springs which I believe are stock (but I have no way of knowing and the guy wasn't sure either. But I would be interested in some rear suspension.....

    Man we had a heck of a ride.

    Sesquatchie never ceases to show you a good time.

    Cover a lot of ground... fast.

    We had a really good group. Rode fast. Nobody got misplaced or fell back....just kept moving all day.

    There wuz 6 of us that rolled out of Coalmont.

    New guy Brian...

    The mud was just thawing as we started. And it was WET. It was super slick till about 2 hours after we started riding. I think all of us learned how to ride with our front wheel on the hogsback and the rear wheel in the rut.

    The group really never stopped and there wasn't much carnage so there I didnt get many pics.

    Came across some timber trouble. Twist and T13 made qwick work of it

    That little hand chainsaw Twist had really cut thru fast.

    We were going down theis muddy rut and my bike stopped rolling.

    Took us a while to figure it out. One of the links in my chain wasn't "bending' like it should so when it came around the front sprocket it was sbumped up a little but and wouldn't make it past the clutch guard. Weird that the smallest little thing could stop a bike.

    It was a nice day for lunch outside at the Palmer store.

    We took of down into the gulfs. The water was a little high and the lines were all messed up from high winter water levels.

    Other than that it was uneventful. A good ride with good riding buddies. I don't think there are any more pics or vids. That's pretty much it.

    Ha! Your lucky there was a camera malfunction and your dive into the river sized creek wasn't caught. I'm sure we'll see some before and after though... ;)
