    3 pictures were on 434, the road behind the guard rail. The map picture was somewhere (why we needed the map) near buzzards roost.

    Who all is heading down to Sequatchie to watch the FIM World Trials event this weekend? I know the BMWROK folks are heading down in a group, and a few of our regulars are working the event. Who else is going to be around?

    Right now it looks like I'm heading down Thursday to set up camp and then spend a couple days riding down that way until things get going on Sat.

    I saw it. Apart from the riding, I was kind of annoyed at Neale over-analyzing the three participants. They are really hoping the lady will eventually break down and cry.

    I thought he should have picked three other people.

    A little background on the selection process and their two weeks of solo training might have made it feel less like an infomercial for the Performance Center (even though it did make me want to go spend a couple of days there).

    True. I get the feeling that the doctor was going to examine whichever kid the minister picked, and the IT guy was there to get him/her an email address.

    Did feel like an infomercial. Also thought if they dropped a bike one more time I'd turn it off.

    Watching her drop it that many times did make me feel a little alone in the world. :lol3

    The three of them dropped the bikes so much I was about sure at some point it would become another Farmers University scenario.

    Did you notice how banged up the mufflers were?

    Ride the bike. Launch the bike. Land the bike. Ride the bike.

    The Cherohala Challenge pedal bike fund raiser ride is this coming weekend. I spoke with the organizer last night and he told me there's been a great response from local motorcyclists offering to provide support. Anyone here joining in to help this year?

    It's time you start riding north of the border.

    My brother (who is training for an Ironman triathlon in July) was bugging me to ride this one with him. I pedaled 87 miles in the cold rain last month during the 3State 3Mountain Challenge and have kinda lost interest.:D
