    I just wanted to drop a line and say how cool I thought the rendezvous was. I did not sign up because of scheduling conflicts. However (Eddieyvalleytrailer) and I did get to make the ride over from Johnson City after work tonight and check out the festivities. Thanks (Strongmendieyoung) for hangin around with us and introducing to a few folks. Sorry I ran out of beer so quick and had to leave. Maybe next year I can attend and PARTY like a MORAN!!

    I was taking pics on 421 today and I noticed this.

    Check out his front brake.

    Front Brake Problems

    So that guy gets a free picture from me in the interest of safety. If anyone knows or sees him, could you flag him down and tell him he has a major safety issue going on with that caliper.

    I'll be at the same spot on 421 tomorrow looking for more bike problems.

    Cheers.

    At the hospital with Al Tuna. His ankle is broken pretty bad. He is probably al going to need surgery. They are going to set it and splint it and he is going to go home to Georgia to get it fixed. Tough old bastard.

    Thanks to all who helped this morning!

    You meant he slipped while doing some of the gnarly single track behind the parking lot.

    He then rode back 27 miles while shifting with his hand.

    One tough SOB

    Good thing another Moran found him before the Black Bears did. Sorry to hear he got hurt. Hope the leg heals soon.


    I had a great time. Really enjoyed seeing 20 riders enjoying the trails that I'm usually luck to just have 1 or 2 buddies to ride with. Clayton thanks for posting all the great pics. We'll get over to Doe Mtn next year, it'll be a lot easier to ride after a night of drinking & etc... :freaky

    It was great meeting everyone. Wish I could remember everybody's' names, but it was an effort just remembering mine at times!! Looking forward to Nottarally.

    Just got home about 30 minutes ago. Nice ride home but was it ever fargy just south of Boone! Thanks to Silke, Hunter, and all the folks helping with the rally and the fine foodstuffs. Thanks to Mark, Mark, and Bill for personally seeing me to my exit--safe travels to everyone.
