    it was an honor to ride again with you and meet some more new people. I had a blast. Taking a big bike is always a challenge through there, but I was very happy with all the encouragement and help from the guys. What a great time and will do it again anytime.

    Last I paid attention it was Tide Pods, I’d imagine it’s gotten more interesting since then :lol3

    Very well said, I was out of my comfort zone at times yesterday and it was amazing and scary. I woke up this morning thinking about how I’m gonna conquer that hill, if is more of the reality :-)

    Hey guys just getting to this, I had a GREAT time. I’m a little jealous of the over the hill gang so @JRowland maybe me you and one other one day? Let’s see…

    I loved riding with all of you. @WACO OLD TIMER I recommend you hose off your gear outside and maybe wash it at a laundromat. That mud was super stinky lol.
