The GasPipe is all cool and calm as he awaits to attack the mountain climbs for the day after rejetting his carburator a little. The climbs are going to be brutal, rocky and steep and Bruce warns me of one especially steep rocky climb that took out some riders in the past. I Reply---"You're Scaring Me" Turns out I blew up the hill like it was Kansas downhill interstate with my Marzochi suspension, Dunlop tires, Moose gloves, thor shinguards, Dobbs bargain town duck tape, golly wobble wheel bearings, excel rims, Oklahoma turd seat, and last but not least My: "Oops----I Sheet My Pants Undergarments" Gotta thank your sponsors a little here These cattle guards will kill you if you're not careful. There is nothing like them in the U.S. If you're brave you can jump them---maybe------I'm not very brave and creep over them like the old man that I am--and live to ride another day. Mooooooove Over-----Gringo I think Paul is in heaven on his nice KTM 525 EXC He is an excellent rider who drove all the way from Canada to ride with us. It was good to ride with him even though he could only stay for 4 days of riding. Yes Senoir' "Beeg Dog" Is in heaven also. Lee Bob has changed my name form here to fore to Pierro Grande We climb today to over 9,000 ft. and it is tough climbing in rocks that are really taking a toll on my stamina, hands and arms. You've heard the story-------there was much worse terrain but we were too busy hanging on to take pictures--ya-da-----ya-da---ya-da. With only 55 miles under our belts at about noon I was completely wore out and had to really pull myself together to continue on. Others were feelling the same way. The terrain eased up a bit and I regained myself somewhat to enjoy the views. I never noticed till I got home and looked at this picture a little closer that it was made out of an old sawblade.
