    I'd like to ride the trails at Prentice Cooper or Houston Valley. Lets see if we can break the chain of Saturday storms we've had for the past three weekends in a row.:dog

    Monte ~ I'm hoping it clears up some for riding Saturday, maybe Prentice Cooper?


    Twisty ~ I'd be game for hitting the Houston Valley again on a weekday. Maybe next week? What days are you usually good for riding up?

    Andre and I are hitting Houston Valley - approx 5pm for hour or two. Text me if you want to meet up 4239272009.

    Andre will be on his KLR650 and I on KTM350. I blew out my bearings or spacer in my rear wheel on my DR650 last Friday on Starr Mountain... hoping warranty will cover it!

    Jesse Teague and I may do Prentice Thursday afternoon as well.
    (My wife is out of town - can you tell? :rofl

    Last night was a blast! Chasing Mr. Twisty through the trails of HV - proved to increase my adrenaline flow dramatically!! But then... we hit the Clay-Cliffs! Biking turned into more of like Sledding (downhill) and dragging (uphill). I am sure I burned a week's worth of calories last night!

    Broken Mirror + mud in every crevice + chasing Mr. Twisty = :clapGreat time!

    I've been trying to get my pictures of Doulos uploaded to Photobucket so I can post them up from our ride, but they won't upload. Most of then are of an exhausted Doulos standing over a napping KTM 350.:roflI may have to get help from Photobucked. Something is wrong.

    A new drinking establishment has opened in Chattanooga and I'd thought I'd give it a shot. The Flying Squirrel! Located near the Crashpad off of Main St.

    I know, I too find riding videos boring. That's why I don't own one. You've gotta do something pretty damn spectacular to make it interesting. Hell, even watching Davey Milsaps run a lap on a supercross track looks ho-hum.

    However, it was pretty awesome watching Doulos hit that first big mud hole followed by a greasy hill. I don't have the video, but it does keep replaying in my mind. It definitely would have made the highlight reel. :clap

    I always enjoyed climbing a hill on a bike that could not be done on foot. The commitment it takes to "Drop In"... Glad you guys a having fun! :clap

    FYI, I am heading out on Friday. Trout has been nice enough to let me borrow his Spot. If you have nothing better to do, you can track me at:
    http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0FJuRK6o8xjS8xTJ4WrNyvAEqbGWG9j95
    Additionally, I will be reporting the trip along the way using Twitter as it seems to be easy to post pictures and short updates. Once I get back, I'll do a full write up of the trip on here. My handle is @lookkg261 or you can go to

    See everybody in June.
