    Coke Ovens is always a good time. I'm really bummed I had to miss it. Shit happens I guess.

    Looks like everyone had a good time.:clap

    Sorry, I don't have a lot of pictures, most of the times we stopped I was too busy hanging out of my own hoop to even take photos :lol3

    And if you are going to seize your motor on the coke oven ride, This is definitely the place to do it, close to the end where a buddy can come fetch you with the pick-up truck. (Thanks Julio :freaky )

    Thanks for the ride guys, that was brilliant and I had a great time! I can't wait to go again next year (on something a little more suitable/reliable though :lol3 )

    Epic ride, awesome conditions with vitually no dust , and a REALLY talented group !! Bucket Boy demonstrated some new lines through the rocks and made it look easy !
    I rode behind Dusty for a short time ( for as long as an old guy could keep up ) , and that Kid can ride ! He makes everything look smooth !

    Thanks to all for another EPIC Coke Ovens ride !

    Awesome day!! Thanks Buddy for hosting yet another great ride!

    The sand was moist and tacky, just like Mongo likkey!!

    Good to see everyone. HTM, that arm looked kind of bad, I hope you heal up quick!

    Hey, what happened to crown royal? The rougher the better... I was hoping for a lesson.:lol3

    Take care everyone, thanks again.

    Well, technically it was to go to Rattlecan for a repeat wrist fracture, but he has retired & refused the trophy, then on to Hoosier, but I gather he doesn't want to display a reminder at home that what we do for fun involves risk.

    Slowred, one of 2 two time recipients gave it to RWAZ to give to me.

    Looks like I'll be holding it until someone earns it again, hopefully never :deal

    Lets see the updated trophy with the additions form Big E and Slowred pacing it back and forth...did Allen get added before it got passed back to you?

    A search party went out and returned with the missing two riders. The rest of us kept busy.

    Ok, I'm officially worried about this group. A stripper? Really? :eek1

    Not my preferred entertainment, but the M/C riding looks fun!

    I was off looking for lost riders whle this was going on.... I am hoping that it was just a result of Sonoran over heating in the short wash area and he was trying to cool down, but you never know with this group...:eek1

    As Skip and Cathy always say: "Shake it off...it's only a flesh wound". Iodine and some of this new "fake skin" stuff and I am good as new.
