    It started Friday night at the GGC, meatloaf, crabcakes, french fries, coleslaw, birthday cake, and beer beer beer! Then off to the cabin, Jim Thorp Dave, Cat0020, and I to set up for a little pre-ride sleep.

    At the end of the mile one, the first casualty...

    Deadguy hit a rock and busted up the rear brake and footpeg bracket. His day was complete.

    Tribeless must of hit the same rock Deadguy hit. Footpeg and rear brake pedal damage. Jim Thorpe Dave and Chris get him back together enough to continue, hurrah!!!

    And then there were ten.

    So, we're heading down this dirt road, pretty fast, when Tribeless gets to a 90 degree turn, he finds he hasn't yet acclimated to his new rear brake pedal configuration, oops. At least he missed the van sized rock, which I didn't get in the picture.

    The day consisted of a lot of uphills and downhills on powerlines and gas lines. Lots of rocks.

    Here's Super Steve.
