    It was nice to meet you Samm & Brian. Thanks for the good tour. I had to clean my air filter after yesterdays ride. That is a good thing.

    Till next time,

    On Saturday myself, Lance KLR and Samm rode south and east of Calgary. I climbed the monster hill.

    Summing up the day's ride. Memorable quotes "So ah... where do you guys wanna go? I don't care, as long as I'm riding" and "to go where no sport bike has gone before"

    Never thought I would be eating dust this time of year in S. Alberta.
    Thanks to Brian and Wim for the ride. Sure felt like the middle of
    April today at Brians's Dirt School. Good thing that dirt was'nt
    frozen when I went down. :huh

    Bryan and Wayne,

    Thanks for the good time yesterday.:clap Especially playing in the dirt with the heavy ADV was great.
    Hope to do it again soon, in the same weather conditions.
    Next time I won't forget my camera.
