    I think we are all awesome just to be out there..!!

    No matter the skill level we are all doing what we like to do.

    Being in remote places pushing our limits... :clap

    Few people do what we do and that makes as "brothers"

    At least for a weekend or a day.
    On any given ride.
    I think anyone of us would give whatever it takes to help someone on the trail in need.

    And after the ride it I always wish I had taken more pictures. Even just hanging around the campfire.

    Dudes-

    Sorry to have missed the cock-fest! Really NO way to measure who is fastest on a fun trail ride. ALL about having fun and hanging out. Raced at the 24 Hours of Glen Helen this weekend and WON the 40+ Expert class. Completed 53 laps of a knarly 9 mile course with my team mates. You guys should enter a team together to see who really is fast and tough!! Every lap is recorded and posted LIVE for ALL to see. No pissing, bragging or excuses required or...shut up and have FUN!!

    P.S.- Son Colton won the Pro class with 73 laps!! 4 straight wins for him! Check it out at GlenHelenRaceway website. If you dont race you aint fast!!!

    Right on Brad! I thought the guys that were doing 45-50 laps were flying. 73 laps in 24 hours is amazing!

    Here's a video of where Topi led us into the rocks on Beach trail, Sep 2nd. I knew we were gonna have fun, when Steve said something like. "Wait a few minutes, I'm gonna setup for some pictures....". LOLOL.

    I'm not taking away from the "other guys" videos, but I really enjoy watching this kind of video showing how guys struggle, sucking gas (just like me!) on some of these trails.

    I really like the team effort helping each other :muutt I would ride with you guys anytime! I remember the one time I rode with you on Alamo/Frazier Sarge. You have a huge threshold to pain. You were riding nasty trails with a bad knee no less!

    lol man :D

    Razr was never serious, was just messing with ya, im sure your fast, hell I used to be pretty quick too, until so many broken bones and crap forced me into 2nd place and slowing down, this is just trail riding, hanging out, bench racing and poking fun at one another, this is not the pits in the AMA National series hheheh Im not jumping on your dick or anything, im just saying if people REALLY wanted to race they have sanctioned events with results everyone can look at heheh...

    I poke at my friends all the time riding, some I know well, others not so much, but it always seems everyone knows the others are always just messing around, it's in out nature..

    :freaky

    Thanks Razr and Chris. It was fun. I had two weekends in a row up at Kennedy Meadows. The riders for both weeks were great bunch of guys. nothing to prove, we helped each other, pushed each other, cheered on each other, and laughed with each other. we had fun.

    The brutal part was he pretty much made it over the obstacle but just flamed out right after he made it up and had no where to put a foot down . . . luckily the bush caught him and he had a soft landing . . . no carnage to his bike either . . . with all them big rocks around, he got lucky for sure. I made it about 5 feet farther then stalled myself . . . I gotta work on that . . . when confronted with a big obstacle, I've been doing a better job hitting it hard and going over it, but I seem to be so fixated on the obstacle as soon as I'm over it I tend to stall out once I realize I made it.

    LOL.. that's what I do. A couple weeks ago I broke my clutch cable 7 miles out on the Tejon trail in the Los Padres forest. I use my clutch alot on that little 250 to keep traction and such. it does pretty good lugging my 235 pound lard ass around. the ktm 530 on the other hand, could tractor up anything without bogging down. .

    These videos are more of what I have experienced on my ADV rides.
    Guys helping each other having fun and the occasional go down.

    I am never racing out there just trail riding.

    I was just sticking up for myself.

    But I am over it.

    I really enjoy the pics and videos guys
