    I think if you pull in your clutch lever it disengages and when you let it out it re-engages. At least that's the way mine works. I had to steal my dad's AARP card to even view auto clutches online.:rofl

    Sorry Jeff, the debil made me do it. This thread seems to have gone so many different ways anyhow. What's the harm? Kind of like what was going to happen tomorrow when 30-40 riders showed up and went 42.5 different directions.

    I just picked up 14 authentic Irish meat pies for those showing up tomorrow. Freshly out of the oven at 4:00 today. Great trail snacks. I even got two all veggie for those anti-protein types. :dg

    I think yesterday was probably the best ride I've been on in years. The weather was perfect, the riders were all super cool and the desert/hills could not have been any better, with sticky chocolate layered Velcro on most every trail.

    Possibly the only thing that would've made it better from my perspective would've been if I had not gotten drunk the night before and had taken the time to mount my new rear rim with my new MT43, because life would've been a whole lot easier on some of that stuff.

    Don't have any riding pics, but I have this one of Jimmy 1224r adding to his clutch fluid. Just kept moving too fast to get any pics. Some of the others got some though and maybe some video.

    And these from dinner at HTs afterwards. The carne that Ralphy brought and the home brew that HT made were awesome.

    Unofficial results:

    Champs (yes it was a tie) Ralphies boys they made the hillclimb look easy along with everything else.

    Chumps (this was I tie as well) NMBMN and yours truly theGrinch. I'm sure there are pics of our fails.


    We did the hillclimb challange after a great day of riding some of the best and fastest single tract I have road.

    Scott is the Man when it comes to a ride. He does not disappoint.

    Actually, No.........Scott, Kevin and Ralphy all made it up. I made it about ten feet from the top (my best of three runs), Grinch a bit below that ( he also attempted the much harder right section). I think a few didn't attempt at all.

    However, these "toddlers" ride like crazy and not only did they do the main climb, but the offshoot to the right. They then went a ways back up the canyon and did a climb to the south from the main hill that it looked like no one had ever made it up. Those two were hill climbing and jumping fools (toddlers, I think not) :clap

    Scott will hopefully post some pics soon.........

    If HT, Hidezkev and Ralhpy are teenagers, what's that make you?
