    I have seen Grreatwife shag (the dance not .... you know) all night in 90 degree, low tide, airless, 100% humidity weather with barely a shine when most people are pouring sweat just to stand around and drink beer.

    She loves her some SC weather. We went to Key West in August for our anniversary and vacation in South Carolina in July because we actually dig that weather.

    He’s the owner of Highland cycles right there in Montrose.

    Best loop by far is eagle valley to sidewinder to the rim trail (can’t remember the name) other things to not miss monster ditch and there’s a few tight washes from the end. Then hill climb and endurox and Moto till you can’t stand.
    Depending on which direction you do the rim/sidewinder, I would head north on sidewinder from eagle valley and if anyone in the group has any trouble with sidewinder or eagle valley whatsoever or it’s hard at all then just drop down and ride the ditch back to the parking area and go rip monster ditch instead of looping the trail on the rim, it’s got some moderately difficult stuff on it.

    I learned it by following dudes that know it well so I’ve never looked at a map and don’t know names like I know how to get around out there.

    I’ve never met him but a bunch of the T-ride and GJ boys know him. Usually when I’m with them we are riding gnar so I guess Morgan doesn’t like to go with them anymore.

    Morgan is always willing to help and they have good maps too I’ve heard

    I wish I could watch the Monster Energy Cup! It’s coming down to the last Moto between AC, Tomac and Malcolm Stewart

    Am I a bad man for laughing when Tomac threw away a million dollars with the kind of WTF stupid crash I usually have?

    Better than the WTF officiating in the impending Bama blowout. The refs are calling it for Bama like a Duke basketball game.

    He was winning Moto 2 and crashed? That’s why he was 3rd?

    I like most everything about my evo 300... but I freaking hate the left side kick. It’s especially bad when it’s cold and someone else try’s to start it first.

    No hand guards, wood knot bang.

    That looks pretty awesome. Is it a beaver damn? I ask because of the trees standing in the water.

    He would want to put bar risers on it.
