    I got some really funny looks when I was about to lead a group out of Martinez when I told them it was going to get rocky. I think they understood by the time they got here :knary

    Ya, I am suprised you didn't ride your CT "Trail" 70, it will do everything you ask too, when you are pushing it along with your legs ala Fred Flintstone.

    Those are some great pics! If'n I'd knowd ya'll were gonna have so many picher takin' folks,I'd have put some lipstick on. You know what they say, "You can put lipstick on a javelina, but its still a javelina."

    Can't wait for the full ride report. I've got bumps and bruises on top of bumps and bruises. Lil Blue took a lickin' and kept on tickin'. Fear the Fins. They look almost as good upside down. :rofl
