Happy birthday Marty!

Sat on one of those new 700's today, seemed sweet!

I vote for a 1200 riders up at Eagle Bay (weather permitting). 1600 at the Crab house?

BTW, there is a slight chance of snow in the forecast...

So another great day out at Eagle Bay riding single track today. The weather turned out to be perfect...a bit cool while getting the bikes and our selves ready, but once you hit the trails everything warmed up quick.

Just in case you haven't seen the magical ruby red slippers, here's Blaster's before picture


And after...not so clean and pretty now


Today we stuck to the 2 mile loop. Using the Delorme, he's how the first 2 laps mapped out.


It was good getting Blaster back out on the trails...for the most part he behaved...Just to prove he got out there I got a couple videos

2 mile loop crossing the second bridge


I tried to get some video of Blaster on the uphill, but he was moving too damn fast
All I got was an elbow


2 mile loop weaving through the trees near the end


Not sure what the big snapping sound was when Dorito started up, but I bet she's glad she had bark busters

All in all a great day riding...


We did discover something interesting about Dorito and her helmet...apparently she has never ridden with it when it's been sunny out....


(all videos included are from trusty cell phone...though a GoPro camera was used, it currently exceeds the skill level of the operator to transfer video )

TTR Doesn't have Bark Busters. At the "speeds" I move at, those would certainly result in a broke hand!

Foiled again...that is where I remind myself of the secrets to the universe!
Fixed! Thanks for filming Dave-O. I think the last location looks like one we should try again.

Awesome Dave....thanks for the pictures and video. I like the track/satellite view. I may be a bit biased but the DRZ sounded good pretty good coming out of the mud hole!

I'll be on the eastern shore "hopefully" shooting snow geese Saturday morning. I "might" make it if we do dinner.

I've been reading a lot of stuff in the orange crush and I'm more confused now then when I started. Though it seems everyone raves about 16T front and 42T rear. What are your thoughts?

17 42 is stock. Most people dig the 16t front.

Dana, I did the very same thing with my BILT helmet. First sunny day commuting home south on 95 I smugly lower the inner visor and low and behold I could barely see because I left that damn sticker/protector on there. Then, because I hadn't practiced, I couldn't get the damn thing back up in the stowed position. So there I am fumbling with my helmet with one hand and tring to keep the Hack straight while zipping down the HOV lanes at 75 mph. Boy did I feel like an idiot.

Very nice! Those bridges were a bit scary to say the least!
