    Skinner's post election wild game cook out was a big hit today in CL! :nod

    Thanks for the (very) fresh meat and thanks for the intro to the 525. I hadn't ridden a true dirt bike for 30 or so years. Once I got my short legs over that way high seat, I felt right at home. This was not a day for the GS to be anything but on the road... :eek1

    Good meeting everyone! Joe, it sounds like he mighta got you good -- welcome back!!!

    I know there are pics...

    Skinner - Thanks for organizing a great ride and grub! KFSINC - thanks for a great pavement ride through Bull Valley.

    Skiner, when do you get your 950? We need to do the Bull Valley ride this Saturday if you get the 950 today or tomorrow morning.

    My oil light flickered on a couple of times yesterday and I may need to take it back to Ukes depending on if it comes on tomorrow. If I do need to take it in, it would be typical that once your bike is out of the shop, my bike goes in .

    #1 That was a much needed break from the work grind. I am still smiling!
    #2 Thank you, thank you, thank you for the awesome grub and riding in the dirt. Thanks to Skinner especially for waiting for me on the trail to make sure I was getting through it OK, only to rooster tail me with a face full of muck/mud. My family was laughing at the dirt on my face when I got home that made it through the full face. I wore it like a badge of honor.
    #3 I just suck in the dirt, but had a blast sucking at my own pace on both of Skinners KTM's. As Fireman said, this was not a day for the big GS or 950 Adventures back there.
    #4 I am in for a Saturday ride per mission control, so let me know where the meet spot is and what time. Bull Valley would be cool again, as would be up Nort of the Cheddar Curtain.

    I will give Rusty a call.
