    53 degrees, sunny and warm in December!
    How can you pass this up?
    Tell the wife, girlfriend, mother, etc. that you must go to church of the 2 strokes.

    Big Bikes!
    Pakim Pond!
    10 a.m. kickstands up. Be gassed, or be square.

    Depending on size of group, may do some duck hunting!

    Little bikes welcome, but don't expect any stick forests!:-)

    Yeah, sorry, but I've been doing a fair amount of highway slogging up to NH this fall, and decided the 5 hours of highway to do your ride was too much. Sounds like you have enough folks and enough toys. Have a great day. Look to see you on the slopes of Blue soon!

    Does 800lbs and about 5' wide qualify?





    Planning to ride from there tomorrow anyway...

    Was that your rig we saw at Lucille's? A Ural all covered with mud?

    Penn and I had a pretty neat "kinder and gentler" big bike ride around the neighborhood. 53 degrees for the high, no rain, perfect conditions. We did work pretty hard on long causeway coming back from Lucille's.... Here are a few shots from the ride:

    That's a local rig which belongs to a friend of mine. When I told him I was meeting another Ural at Pakim, he suggested just starting from his house. Unfortunately, shortly after entering the woods his ignition system started acting up and he turned back with a pit stop at Lucille's. His bike is not muddy compared to other two after a long stretch of some real greasy stuff just past the radio tower.

    The conditions were real nice today and we got in about 4 hours of nice riding. Maybe we'll see you next time...

    Your new baby GS will be perfect for the stuff we did yesterday. With heated gear, 50 degrees is perfect in the woods.

    Penn, where are your photos and videos?
