    Buddy got here and blipped the throttle just after the shutter fired on this shot.

    The reset was too slow to catch the flight, but just got the landing.

    After the group split at the Ovens we took the usual route out. Bucket Boy was on a mission to let his dog out. Not a euphemism! :lol3

    Things were moving a little slow on the route toward Battle Axe. We decided that with 4play and Nightstalker there were enough people riding sweep who knew the way that we could take a slightly faster group at least up to the highway.

    Through some splintering of that group I ended up just leading Bucket Boy back.

    He can make that 230 move!

    I gave Bucket Boy directions to get back and waited at the top of the big climb for a while. After a couple minutes I figured I should sweep for Bucket Boy since he only had verbal directions for the way out. Nightstalker and the rest of the crew eventually caught up.

    I didn't mind the slightly slower pace with my blown fork seal and skatey tires. It was a good ride with good people! Thank you again for lunch/dinner, Crilly!

    Crilly was wise to know his limits and it looked like he was in good hands with 4play & Wild Bill.

    Crilly, how did the bike hold up? I noticed you didn't have a skid plate yet, any damage?

    Thanks Kevin

    :norton the bottom is fine. Needs handle bars, shilt lever, rear brake lever, and a part the front turn signal attaches to. As many times I lost it, it is better than it should be. Needs lower gearing also.
