    Brad, Miro, Schmitty and I got out for a little dirt-monging this morning. Miro is clearly in a class of his own in the dirt and trails, Schmitty rode unbelievably well on his new DR650 (only two days of riding experience). I was having a ball dirtying up the new SXC... not so new anymore.

    Miro topping out on a 75ft vertical!

    Motojoe, Electron, 00Dirt, and myself all met up at Buffalo Range. We joined up with a few other riders from Thumpertalk.com and had a f*ckin' blast !!

    Motojoe has pics to come...

    Electron learned that riding a bike is far easier than pushing one.
    ...and Motojoe got stuck in the creek, again.

    Believe me Todd, the pictures were "before" pics. The bike are NOT clean or unscathed. Lets suffice to say that Brad and I should probably carry some spare parts next time we go to the Dirt.

    The riding spot is fairly close to where we live, I will show you guys when you want to go. The "Dirt" spot is somewhat hidden and the people that ride there want to keep it that way so I wont post the location on the Internet.

    ah the joys of breaking (in) a new motorcycle.









    I hear you about keeping the ride spots quiet. Ive allways kept my offroad favorites on the hush. looking forward to riding with you guys.
