GA vs NJ...

Hey Dirty, the mishap is not part of the challenge... we give up you win...don't try to match the ride... do it safe and have a good time... i got bumped from the ride early on ( had the wrong bikes) so no pics of the good techincal stuff but Franco and i did some tresspassing... Service road to Trump National Golf course.... top that if you can... Can't wait to see your pics from Sunday...Jorge

Well even though some of you guys got banged up, it looks like everyone will be able to ride again another day. Maybe we can all get together one day, maybe suches, ga? It's a tad closer to me but there is some good riding in them hills. You guys take care, as far as who wins. When we can go out and ride and come home to the family, we all win.

So sorry to hear about your accidents! It is definitely safer to watch these bikes scream around MGM Disney, then to ride them on the street. Check out:


We stumbled upon the Lights and Motor Stunt show because we took a wrong turn and ended up at MGM instead of the Magic Kingdom. This show just opened last year, and it's spectacular. And Jolly, the motorcyles are all motards, and the cars are special design things with Hyabusa engines in them !

So, heal up quickly fellows. Bummer!

Damn dude, doesn't sound like fun. Good to be alive though yes. I had 3 breaks in my shoulder from a car accident (i was a passenger), and I feel your pain - good luck on the recovery, it takes some time (shoulders).

Post a detailed acct in Face plant when you're feeling up to it. It might save a life.

I wish you fella's a full and speedy recovery. We all should understand the risk we take everytime we swing a leg over. From the left hand turning soccor mom to bambi, we are exposed. It's unfortunate, but it goes with the territory. Get well soon guy's.

Hey Doc,
you are supposed to be in the Muppet Show, not watching motard

it probably is...

Its a smooth road and all things Trump they do keep it up...but we were rolling along and saw some horseback riders and they flagged us down to stop not just slow down so there was no speed there... in fact that happened after we lost you guys some horse rider was off the horse standing on the road and walking the horse back into the area... we figured you guys blasted past her and freaked out the horse...LOL it was a great day for a horse ride or bike ride...

Boy the day after is probably the worse (post trauma) i hope everyone is doing as well as can be expected. If someone needs equipment recovered or moved just let me know...i have a pick up, trailer and a closed trailer to help out...

A few pics

I had them, so I might as well put up a few...

These are from the ride yesterday...during the good stuff.

Not how you want your chain to end up:


Luckily someone Joe knew was driving past:


Broken bike, but still happy:


Near the powerlines:


Joe and Craig (I think, I'm bad with names)


Are we suppose to be here?


(l to r) Joe, Chris, Walter and Orion fixing Walter's rear brake:


Taking a needed rest after muscling the bikes through the woods:



The ride was great, just would have been better with a different ending.

No fooling- it had everything: good dynamics with compatible people and (mostly) bikes, very nice weather, and roads/otherwise that provided a lot of enjoyable diversity. Typical ride with an atypical finish (and start for James). Some pictures:


Jason muscled his GS around all day with good humour, in places it had no place being.













We apparently weren't the first motorcycles there































Here's the problem Jason mentioned. It was pretty rocky, and I guess 7" of stroke just doesn't go far enough anymore

Walter, you re-assembled it upside down !
See ? No wonder BMW does not allow you on their machines.
