    Thanks All, this ride turned out to be a whole lot more than I originally conceived. a16tony's organization of camping amenities etc was much appreciated. The Green Hornet and his shiny bike!

    Gremlin, I swear Ive never seen a GS get the snot beat out of it that bad! I hope you got home in one piece.

    da Rider, nice honda and damn good to meet ya. Stosh, GSguy - must drink more beer with ya soon.

    88', CT, Darin and all the crew - I had a damned fine weekend. The scratches and dents on the bike (and me) were worth it!

    Cheers all

The inaugural, First Annual Funny Rocks Ride was a great success and I'm tucker'd out.....but I'm already thinking about the next one !! Funny Rocks Rocks!!!

    I had a blast this weekend. I'm definitely in for the next one. Thanks to everyone for the organization, time, and money put into this. It was great getting to meet all of you and I'm hoping to see you all again soon. Must get some sleep now.

    Okay, I'm falling behind in posting because I got the bike unloaded, took a nice long shower and then had to wash the mud from the shower stall helped gs wife with dinner a little ate a little and then passed out in GSguys man chair.

    A huge thanks for the time and effort put into this group ride by Tony, Chad and Lacey, you guys rock big time. Everyting from scouting out the area for a fun ride, doing the costco shop and geting all the camp sites for us all to stay in the same area. To those of you I rode with before, great times and happy trails, to those of you I just met, great times and happy trails. To Johnny, next time you better have the vstrom or your cleaning the outhouse :lol3 Anna, It was good meeting you also, get that deadbeat old man of yours to fit the bike with a pouch so you can ride a long also.

    To the ones that have not posted yet, maybe just throw out a hi so we know you made it home okay, there were a lot of knuckle heads out there yesterday and the traffic was bad.

    More to come along with pictures. Maybe I'll need to open a smugmug account so I don't have to do links from my web site. :freaky

    Oh it wasn't that bad!

    Made it back at 12:30am a little sore after riding all day. I have a few bruises but spent the day sunday pulling a "Tony" on the bike (that's a 4 hour cleaning and damge assesment) On the ride back the bugs coated every inch that the mud hadn't which was very few spots. Damn that bike was dirty after 2 weekends of riding jeep roads and single track. Break lever, no problem I just have to bend it back. The clutch well my feeling is that it still works fine just smells a little.

    That was an absolute freakin fun day (Still pissed about that hill though) Nothing is better than the looks you get from people in the middle of the woods on that GS.
    I want pics

    Lessons Learned
    1. Stop trying to climb a hill once you see smoke coming from the clutch
    2. Don't try climbing moon rocks after you have just fried your clutch
    3. Check how deep said mudholes are before riding through (Possible second lesson in this is to follow the other guys around the mudhole)

    Well done, Green Hornet. The spirit of Adventure rules at Funny Rocks, largely because of your efforts, and those of your intrepid band of exiles. Until next time: High Ho, Green Hornet.............away!
