This ride was pretty good too.



This one was too.
Looks like there's some momentum building for some of the Sacramento Riders.

Merry Christmas to everyone, and wish another good year for most, and for the few, yours will just get better, just have to keep on exploring.

Thanks to ADV for bringing us together, making new friends, see different places, and of course, the great memories we keep.

Nice idea Bob. A couple of highlights from the year for me...

Starting the year right at DVD. R-Dubb and Ricardo.



Chief clown Yogoi



Caught the track bug pretty hard. Hit the track hard a couple of times too.



Final fling with pal of many here, Lone*Star, who's headed to KC.





Au revoir to Jean-Luc the night before he left for Patagonia.



Good times. Happy Holidays team west!

Merry Christma, MB!

Hope to see you again in 2008 before long. I think the last time I shared a drink with you was at Warped 2 years ago. Maybe again this coming year.
