    If I don't hear otherwise, I'm just going to assume 6:30 as per usual. You should come then too, that way if we miss the rest of the crew, we can at least play pool.

    Bring quarters. :deal

    Great ride today! Thanks for having us.

    Thanks to all who waited for me. Yardstick has about 2 hours of video of me dropping my bike on the ground.

    I'm gonna have a beer and a bottle of advil now.

    Good ride in a great area! To bad I couldn't do the Sun ride as well.

    Since there will NOT be one of those awesome ride reports from Nightstalker, I'll start with some pics here.

    Some pics from the Sat ride..

    Where is Big-E eating BACON? Yardstick told me he has 844 pictures from the weekend...fantastic photos JRproper. Today was about as epic. 17 total with 13 choosing to do what amounted to race pace. Big-E...sorry man if it wasn't as easy as I led you to believe. Megan, unreal what you do with that 690 with 5 hours of sleep...Don...hope you will consider the Old Pueblo for the ATR sometime. Super special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. R. Page...without your help it would have been difficult to herd the cats. Julio, sometime we will meet down at the old school yard for a single track race.

    A few non orange bikes turned around early.

    One blue WR450F, one blue DRZ, & there was at least one of the red ones made it through to Oracle.

    Hoosier TM organized a great ride this weekend and I was glad to atleast ride the first leg up through the "Gap" with some great riders and fantastic people. Here are a few of the photos that I took along the way;

    Heading south toward the Catalinas the surise was pretty spectacular.

    I know that the Charleau Gap is in there somewhere
