Do you think the neck collars are as effective as neck braces, but more comfortable?

Sunday ride

After I left pinnacals and headed toward Crab Flats.
I thought most of the guys would be gone or leaving.

But to my surprise I saw alot of friendly faces.
ADV riders are the best...Just hanging out talking bikes and riding was cool.

I didnt really expect anyone to be up for riding on sunday afternoon after a long weekend...
But Grezzydave luv2race and I came up with a plan.
We rode the rest of the day... Thanks for linking the trails together for us Luv2race
When I rolled up back at pinnacals the sun was already down and getting dark on a perfect day..!!!

Grezzydave you are FAAASSSST...and luv2race was a warrior on the big bike.

Great to make new friends.....Lets do it again soon..!!!

We hit Gold Mtn, John Bull and White Mtn Sat, as planned and had lunch at The Malt Shop in Green Valley.

Here's a pic of John Bull.

A great day of riding!

Ditto...it isn't noticeable except when I look down at my tank bag to plug in my headphones

But seriously, even though I have great disability insurance better safe than sorry.

It was great to see you having fun on your bike for once rather than dutifully riding sweep.

Mental note: Check tire for 3" long nails before installing new tube. Thanks for all of the help everyone. (Except for Sito, who went into retirement just as I had to do my first ever trailside flat repair.)

So Biggie what you are saying here is that we should just notify Life Flight for the next Pioneer Town ride

It's funny this is not a hard ride at all?

Might be a good idea. Make sure they have a chopper standing by.

I don't think any of these guys crashed on anything crazy or were going that fast.

I can't recall his name, but nice to meet you!

Saturday's bill (well worth it):

1. new rear tire (it probably had a few more miles left)
2. new front tire
3. new handlebars
4. new brake lever
5. new clutch lever
6. new rear turn signals
7. oil leak through hole in primary cover

H8chains told me this weekend that you can change the handle, so I did it. I sold the Old DR650 a few years ago.

I made it.

The damage was done on the way to Crab Flats from Lake Arrowhead on the 3N34/T6 Dishpan Springs route. I eventually made it, but the bike got a little beat up.
