    You and I need to get together for this upcoming riding season.

    I just bought a new to me 07 KTM 525 EXC.

    My first ever KTM and I'm jonesing to do some single tracking, particularly that new Shelton area you shared.

    I've got plenty of time on my hands...just waiting for the torrential rains to subside some!.

    Cap Forest opens at the very end of this month! Can't wait to hit the grunt trail. I'm going to be on my west coast road trip from 4/17 until about 5/13, look me up then and let's hit it. Those 525 bikes got some good pull to them!

    Folks who run marathons put them on their cars. There's also a 13.1 version for half marathons.

    I finished 288 out of 750 at the Desert 100. Only 350 could complete the 100 miles. Brutal race, I've been sore for 5 days. Should be 100 percent in a couple more days.

    $15,000,000 in dirt bikes heading for the start line. This takes us from the rider meeting to the start line, shows how big the perimeter is with camping etc.

    And here is my race video. I had a bit of writers block on this one, because I really wanted to do the song justice. I'm really happy with how it turned out. Now, I can focus on getting ready for my 1 month long tour of the West USA on two of my bikes. I leave on Monday...

    Neat video. I like your statement at the end (3 day & 6 days after). I feel like that quite often and I don't even participate in a race. :lol3

    Back from the 23 days West USA trip. Wow...unreal. I've only created a couple vids of it, will have to spend June working on the rest.

    I'm off to Bend Oregon tomorrow to ride there for 3-4 days. Was there last year and loved it. Weather is looking to be super....finally.

    FYI, I'm off to Canada for two weeks in August and going back to California etc for 2-3 weeks in Sept/Oct.

    I'm a bit injured now, strained achilles from Moab. Ouch...

    Probably more fun if a bit damp I’d bet.
