Supercross & Grandkids

Left Friday morning 8:00am, 25 degrees on my Kawicouch & headed to LA to watch my Grandson play some freshman basketball & attend the Monster Energy Supercross at Angel Stadium. My Son works for Monster Energy & had an extra ticket. Great time with Family & fun watching the Supercross handily won by Ryan Dungey. Last time I went to one of these it was at the LA Colusiem & was called The Super Bowl of Motocross 1972. Larry Huffman was the anouncer & Mickey Thompson one of the promoters. Man I must be old Headed home early Sunday morning, 6 hours flat from Diamound Bar to Prescott. A little wet & could have made better time on my Ninja but I don't have one & would be off the side of a mountain if I did

Two tanks.

Grandson basketball.


My Son, Grandson & Grandaughter.


My youngest Grandkids.


The track & some real motorcycles.






Shades of Rocket Rex Staten!!



Fun time, worth every mile of my 727 mile weekend ride

Thanks! When is the next get together? When is the next RIDE? I want to get out on the big bikes a bit more but need to be careful not to aggravate my tendonitis too much. We need to talk about Moab, too.

Thanks, but I'll pass on the pie. I've read/written a few legal descriptions and done surveys. Plus they make you learn that stuff for a Real Estate License. I guess it stuck. And Google Earth has a cool add on that gives access to that data.

Here's the last apple pie I made (all Honeycrisp):

How do you get that in your coat pocket?



I also know a thing or two about making Apple Pies... My family sometime allows me to assist with pie mak'n. That's me on the peeler/core machine. Made 29 fresh apple pies for the freezer this fall in Missouri. Peeled three 5 gallon buckets of apples!

They should teach how to bake awesome smelling pies for a RE license. My parents were selling a house one time and my mom had just baked pies when the realtor called to show the house. The people looking ended up buying the house with a contingency that they get a pie!

Warning! Tires slashed at Tonto NS parking area!

Don't mean to cross post, but wanted you guys to be aware that someone is slashing tires at the parking area at the top of 136th St. See: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...6#post20696736

that's ridiculous.

Hey Terry, is this where we stage out of when we go to Wildcat?

On a much better note:
I went to get my bike emissioned yesterday and the nice lady that was doing my test tells me
"I bet you're glad this is your last year."

-Say what?

"Yep. They're gonna pass the law around April."




NO MORE FUCKING EMISSIONS FOR BIKES!!!!!!

That is good news! Thanks for the heads up there Cyberdos. I normally emission test early for the bikes that come up in June and July. I will take the gamble and wait this year.
