    Butchering a rear tire.

    Leave my house at 2:00 be riding by 3:00. It's a small area but lots of mud and hills etc. lots of fun. Half hour drive time from my house.Two hours is more than enough, you'll be ready to stop by then.

    ...so I'm coming out of St. Louis about 1:30 east bound on 270 just after the Big Muddy near Alton, when I see a guy on a DRZ? (not sure, but it was yellow...). He's riding like he's on a sport bike -- way fast, splitting traffic -- I couldn't keep up :huh

    He he moves to the exit lane at 111, pops a wheely for most of the lane, sets down the wheely for the turn, takes it so far over his knee's nearly on the ground and is gone. :thumb

    Anybody we know???

    BTW -- stopped at BMW St. Louis. Very nice new store!!! The lady working accessories was so nice I spent way more than I'd planned!

    Sorry, fist had to bail last minute. But we can get out there any time, but not this weekend. Pick an afternoon next week.

    Since fist called and said he had to bail I figured that it would be a good afternoon to bow hunt.
    The 7 pointer in the garage probably feels a little different.

    How are the cops with that place? Probably best to show up with the quiet insert huh? Thats about 15 min from my house.

    We should all meet up some time for sure. I know a few other little stomp'n grounds in c'ville. One on Lake Marian Rd and one off of Randell. Both will be gone in a few years or less.:puke1

    Anyone ride in Sugar Grove off of Seavey Rd?
