No Sissy here. Wheelie trestle til the whistle blows.


I have done a lot of riding over there but ready for more.

ban and I had a great ride yesterday. Wish some others could have come along. ban came up with a route that was a 9.5 on a scale of 1 to 10. It would have been perfect if he would not have run us through thick fog on the first 30 miles. Got to do this one again. Without the fog.

Sieg, ran part of your trail from last week. Found this poor fellow high-sided on Klondike Rd. He had a bad Thanksgiving day. Felt bad as I left him, he had a cell phone but didn't want to use it.
