    I'll start off this report with some good news.

    This afternoon at the end of a dirt section of our ride i phoned home on my cel. Why? I don't know. I just thought something wasn't right. Didn't speak to my wife last night, so i gave her a call.

    Sure as shit something was wrong. Loadedwife had been in a car accident. The Jetta was mashed pretty good when rear ended at a red light by a van that thought it was green.

    Loadedwife is 7 months pregnant.... and most importantly she and future loadedjunior are all right. :thumb

    Ruskie took this photo of her on friday evening. Out in the garage painting a piggie bank she made. thanks for the pic ruskie! ...... whatta girl :rabia

    Friday evening started with a bang. The boys started rolling in around 4:00. dr650bc rode down to the border to meet them and escort them to loadedpalace for some bites and drinks.

    Typical of the adventure riders i have met.... These fuckin people are freaks. I mean take a look at that ruskie. if you think he's bad on here you should meet that fucker :loco and mr cob? holy sheet. that sunnofabitch backed me into a corner with his "pocket knife". That goddamned thing was at least 18" long.... and all he wanted was to know where the mens room was.

    We had a good feed and sampled an assortment of beer and spirit. Did a bit of bench racing, then it was off to bed for the ride to the hills!

    This is.... (l to r) scooter, ruskie, dr650bc, bceeGS, and mr. cob.

    Yikes good to hear that Mrs. Loaded and Loaded Jr. is OK. Did she have to kick some butt at the accident scene?

    those skurvy bastards (ruskie, mr cob, and BeeCeeGS) all crashed at loadedpalace. those cretins wouldn't let me sleep one wink. they dragged my ass out of bed kicking and screaming and forced me to make them breakfast. this was the beginning of a downward spiral for me. i would be their go-boy for the rest of the weekend...... slavedrivers.

    after i had washed all their bikes we headed out to our meeting place about 10 minutes from my house.

    most of the road we had the pleasure of riding on was like this. there were bright green rivers, blue skies, and gravel..... lots of gravel.

    Casualty #1

    here we go...... casualty number one. mr cob rides like a fuckin lunatic. i dont know why thats such a surprize to me. he is a fuckin lunatic. knobbies are speed rated to 100mph or so....... he slows to that on corners. in less than an hour he blistered a tire. we found him one at the local ktm dealer (yes they have those in the middle of nowhere!)

    cob had it changed in no time.

    and another... tigrr and i were blasting along the gravel at quite a velocity. so fast that we felt we had better stop and wait for the boys to catch us. i looked down at the back of his bike and saw something hissing. fuck.

    tube tires mean we have to remove the wheel and patch the tube. one hour later we're off again. no sweat!

    we managed to survive the ride over the hill. tiggr took his new trophy out with him to show the girls. he used the "do you wanna get nailed?" line........ it kinda worked....... more on that in a minute.
