Lies.

I seem to have gotten to about a 60% success rate on these. When it works out, it looks so cool. When it doesn't, people look at me funny and ask why I just stood there and ejected my bike strait into a tree.

Hands and knees?!?!?!? Man, I wouldn't want to be in that position around the guys I ride with. Pretty sure I'd be in better shape chewing my leg off

But he has such eager eyes, down there on his hands and knees, it is hard to resist! J/k, since he is usually the one humbling me out there!

Going through my pics of this time......fun. And I never take pics, no pic of CC holding his moto at shoulder level in chest deep water and him teaching me how to pull a disabled moto with a bs cord on my footpeg after. If/when I get screwed up on a trail I want CC and enduro-ince with me. Funny, CC fixed my bike when I broke my wrist too. Rode 85% of Pritchett Canyon down (after going up) with a broken wrist! They didn't know that though.

and that's why I'm falling off

Are you trying to run from her, or just back to where the riding is awesome?
Hope you figure out a way to be back in this area, definitely missed ya!
