LOL, I had no idea what you were talking about... That is too funny. Fortunately for me, he is the only one with a picture of me doing the Buffalo. Hopefully he stays on the mother ship.

moving along

Maybe later, we can come back to when Rob dances with wolves.....


Well just before leaving Salida, I stopped in to see Hayduke of Fattees, while Rob and the Green guy had some brunch.
I was needing one of those Butler maps and wanted to ask about some local riding secrets.


Then (I) we got lost... I zigged when I should have zagged.. We could see roads everywhere..we just could get to them.



It was hotter than a furnace..

Getting lost can be for the good....as long as your not about to run out of gas. Like Rob.

Trying to get even more lost.


The green guy is still with us.

So let go straight down the hill fully loaded....its the easiest




We were looking for a short cut to the road in the valley when we stumbled upon this. This appeared to be an old cowboy strong hold. Wow!


It was also the end of the road. Again.









ok...time to back track.....again.

We finally find the right gate Now its on like donky kong..Ripping up the double track and having a blast when suddenly I find myself riding alone.





I turned around back tracked once again to find this.



just picking up the pieces





Enjoy the video http://www.vevo.com/watch/godsmack/r...y/USUV71200743

Wow, and to think Rob gave ME a hard time about my bike lying across the trail up on Ophir.... Uh, huh. I see how it is. Hey Rob, you want me to help,you pick up your bike?

Rob, I see you've learned the art of tweaking the side racks back into place.

Great pics and report guys! I'm jealous.

The cases are Pelican cases and require not tweaking. The racks are SW Motech and probably saved my bike from being totaled. The weak link is the core lock that holds one to the other. Once it fails there is no repairing them. Zip ties were the solution and did a great job as substitute locks. That damned puddle is or was way deeper then it looked. All the wetness all around it and dripping of the leaves is from me disappearing into it. I knew the Green Guy was filming and the worst of the trail was behind us. I always ride around puddles, but I figured this time this one could not be more then a couple inches deep. No ruts going in, no ruts coming out, level trail. I down shifted fanned the clutch, got the front light. What could possibly go wrong? Then the bike fell out from underneath me. I recall a strange weightless felling right before the impact.

Todd the video link did not work for me. Unless you wanted me to see a commercial on hormone free birth control followed by a Godsmack video.

Here's a few more pictures.


In this one you can see that once I defied gravity I flew a fairly long distance before touching down again. The first of the drag marks begin at the end of the splash mark.


Broke my GoPro mount during the crash. It captured a really interesting shot I will try to find.


Total damage, looks to be broken left side mirror, front turn signal and the afore mentioned luggage rack lock.

Lulu, you can help me pick my bike up anytime, or you can stand by and watch. I have gotten pretty good at it. Why do you think it was so easy for me to pick up your?

Ok, It's been almost a week of riding so far and we are just now getting to West Fest. Time to see old friends and make new ones. We now have Salida in the rear view and headed to Lake George.






Rob or Rueben add pic if you got'em.
