    Got my tires mounted. Now just throw them on the bike and I’ll be ready.

    You're running two rear tires? I'd like to see that.

    I raced this today, so I'll be looking for a nice rest at the DS ride.

    Am I the only one thinking about camping out tonight? 30 degrees isn’t that cold...

    You should be able to get an early start for early finish. Meanwhile, Layton will have his wheels on by noon and ready to go.

    I’m old and just rode one lap. But I did have fun.

    Then I went over and watched the last lap of The Race/Moose Run and had a good time there too.

    Anyone want to wash my bike tomorrow???

    And last but not least, where was smudgepants???

    I'm old and rode two laps and I washed my bike when I got home. Doesn't anybody have any ambition anymore?

    I washed my bike after the ride. Pretty sure there's still some foliage & mud stuck in places that will never be accessed. :lol3

    No kidding. That never ending swamp section with the muddy ruts and long grass make for some, err, interesting cleaning challenges. It was worth it.

    P.S. if anyone is interested in some Adobe building material, hit me up! Oh and OU812 likes this post:lol3

    That section wasn't too bad. I screwed myself up when I saw a group of 5 or so guys stopped before some large mud puddle with 2 distinct lines through it. I chose right.....and I chose wrong. Bike stuck in the rut, so 3rd gear WFO, pull on bars and slowly pump the bike out. My buddy I was riding with noted afterwords "yeah, we saw you hit that....and all went another way" :lol3
