You missed a real good one today. Thumper said he was movin from the Hood to be closer to our action. Goin to pick up the 5.10 from NB this week. Really had no issues with the 4.50 k270 today. Everybody else was on full knobs and the 270 seemed to hook up pretty well. Just ask Thumper about the roost from it.

Did not use the "sucker today as I'm redoing the the head to follow the ground contour better,hope to get back in the field this week.We ran the first machine I built 3yrs ago.It works really well with all of the mods I have done to it through time.TT already knew what it felt like to get roosted by a 650 spinning a 270 .I'll try to get some pics up this week of the Harvest.And thank you sir for keeping the bad guys off my arse while I tend our rather large garden.

Bigm,
Tell the wife she has a nice ride. TT said she was a natural on it.

I had a great ride Sunday. It was nice to have the old XR back under me on the trails. Trails were good and fast and the soft sand SUCKS! I almost ate the ground a couple time but managed to keep the rubber down (unlike someone else I know). Did manage to have the biggest roost of the day until I burried the pig down to the axle and had to be pushed out of the hole it dug. What can I say, I went out ther to play. I think Rico took a pic of that one too. TT and I slabbed it back to Hope Mills for some food at Beef O'Brady's. Some good food and conversation and made it back to the house for a evil look from the wife for being gone for 7 hours and not calling and telling her when I was coming home.
Cannot wait for the next one. When it get a tad warmer a trip to Uharrie will be in order.

Rico,

Thanks for the tour.

Ray

Can't argue with either point.

Good things come to those who wait.

Here's some pics for you FF's!

I wanted to get a pic of one of these guys riding through this puddle, but TT just did a wheelie around it instead.


Later on, he tore past me going well over 50, came over a slight crest in the trail and went into a BIG one. I really thought he'd be swimming out of it, but he made it through just fine (a little wet though).

I think TT was having to much fun that whole day... here he did a sweet doughnut but as he came through 360 degrees the bike took off in a straight line and spit him off.


This here's the mystery wall. Our best guess is that it was an ammo point.


Ah, and this is T6T's epic roost. Sweet.

Then, after a bit we went over to another area. There's this dinky little hill that we were all too chicken to climb because a few weeks ago it was nothing but clay mud. Even still, it does seem a little tricky still because it's off camber and rough, but TT made short work out of it... and since he did it, the rest of us had to as well.



After that, we headed north and TW and GYO split off, but we did a group ADV salute before they left.


After that, T6T, TT, and myself headed back through the trails back south, and that was about it.

Great ride. I had a blast. After I got home I ate and promptly passed the f--k out.

As soon as the Jeep sells I will be buying a helmet camera for our rides. Then we can really tease those people that don't make it.
