Now I understand why h8chains waited for me right after nicely grooved, gravel-filled curves! I managed to get through those
and dumped the bike in the easiest spot. Oh well.
I also got to witness h8chains' conversational prowess, as he proceeded to insult a fellow rider at Hidden Springs Cafe by telling him "aren't you too old to ride" ? The only way that could've been worse if he'd shown the ADV sign at the same time
