"We Don't Rent Pigs"

Not sure now if we'll be going either; was going to ride the CB over to camp and say howdy, now it
like the rain had set in, flash flood warnings in July? That's just crazy talk, especially in Arkansas!

Great train footage. I've ridden the Durango train, but not the Chama.

Just once in my life I'd like the opportunity to shoot at an educated man.- Gus

No, I'm trying to get over a gut rot stomach ailment. Don't think camping and riding are in the cards for me this weekend.

Hmmm, you think Colorado would be far enough?

I know that you have trouble reading without moving your lips, so I'll type slooooow...

Good to finally hear from you, Goose! I had no idea it would take so long for you to formulate a semi-witty response.

Seriously, Goose is the man; some pics of his bike at Gothic:

After leaving the train, we headed north through Cumbras Pass into Colorado; I regret that my camera had given up the ghost, as this section was incredible, awesome radiused curves though alpine meadows on par with anything we had seen on this trip. As things started to level out and look like New Mexico, we happened across this burned out old church, cemetery hiding in the back ground














Walking through the old cemetery, one could just imagine Clint Eastwood or Lee Van Cleef stepping from behind a tombstone. Seeing the graves of so many children made me reflect on how badly people want themselves and their kin to be remembered; for that reason I have always loved cemeteries. I can't help but think that the dead would appreciate a little bit of attention or they families wouldn't have went to the expense and toil to erect memorials. This little guy died 4 days before I was born, now I have to think that anyone who even knew of his existence is gone from the face of te earth.

"I haven't felt 100% on dirt since acquiring knee troubles, and consequently surgery last year, to the point that I was ready to quit dualsporting all together. The only reason i maintained the DR was because Zach would have killed me in my sleep if I had sold it, I just couldn't shake myself from the dirt doldrums; this malaise continued to plague me on this trip as well...

Until Potash...

Something clicked( psychiatrists describe a state of flow as when your task exactly matches your ability; if your ability exceeds your task, you have boredom, your task exceeds your ability you get anxiety, but there is a state if being where time stands still and, like a world class musician that plays licks that they didn't even know that they were capable of, you find yourself performing well beyond your ability. Usually the feeling vanishes as soon as I realize I'm feeling it, but this was not one of those times. I'm sure I looked like an idiot, hair on fire and a silent scream in my throat, everything in perfect focus and happening in perfect zen-like rhythm, the most incredible feeling I have ever felt on a motorcycle since chasing Supaflid down 341 in Arkansas, watching him skim his left hand on the pavement. We blasted past numerous jeeps until we encountered an off cambered slate shelf, the road went down and to the left, I foolishly decided I was bulletproof and went high and to the right, quickly found my self piled up under the bike in a cloud of dust and glory. Zach came up just in time to hear me howling, not in pain or anger at corkscrewing into the ground, but I was so pumped I wanted to get her off of the ground and proceed before I lost my mojo. What an experience, I'll never forget it". Dogjaw.
This is poetry to me , I don't even ride dirt but I get it.

"This is poetry to me , I don't even ride dirt but I get it. "

As Jack Reipe, the author of "Conversations with a Motorcycle" told me, "there's not an author in the world who wouldn't stand on their head in a bucket of crap to hear words like that"

I'm no author, but someone "getting it" makes the whole trip that much more special; thank you.

Oh, and in unrelated news: I picked this up yesterday...
