    How did you like the revised waterbars?...they're very "jump-able" : ) FS 270 down to 116 is also a little less rocky.

    They were awesome!
    We had alot of mud on 116 from the storm that moved through last night.
    Like sloppy black goo, it was different from the usual granite gravel scree.
    After we crossed over Hwy 9 it dried out a bunch, and was pretty good for the rest of the day.
    Lost my tailbag on Gold Camp, John picked it up and we got back into town.
    Lost it again on Meridian/Overton Rd headed to home, Some douche in a white pickup grabbed it and took off.
    Guess I needed a new toolbag and tools, pump, and tubes.

    Could have been a great day for a ride, but I had my in-laws and took them to Victor and cripple creek, I was having lunch at Johnny Nolans upstairs and saw you guys down on main street. I was feeling a bit jealous.
