    Great pics....I took only a couple....

    86d4life and I didn't get on the bikes until after noon on Friday so we only rode up to Chloride and then back down Titus.....

    Saturday we made up for it with a 320 mile loop...we saw a good size group on Saline including on fast FF on a yellow DRZ and a white helmet...you sir can ride...:clap ....

    320 miles before the sun goes down means a lot of this....:D
