Awesome time riding with y'all today! Thanks for letting me tag along. Wish I could've stayed longer.

I'll get the couple pictures that I took posted sometime tomorrow.

Rico, have a safe trip. Holler at us some time.

Luni, good meeting you.

Wynn, holler when you're back down this way.

Thumb Saturday rides

Sounds like ya'll had a good ride up there today...A52 was perfect down here. Got in enough ride time to get my card stamped so I'm still current Had to bail early due to a broken throttle cable wouldn't have been no big deal if it had dropped to an idle but instead it hung about 3/4 open in second gear following "boss" through a corner that he was not in a real big hurry to "blast" out of kill button and clutch...no harm, no foul was able to unhook throttle cables and limp back to the truck...no walking required.

Jay, Travis and Mom...it was good to see ya'll. Let us know when ya'll are coming back, and we'll see that a 125 is available for the family...Two down...two to go

Tourist made a Cameo appearance on the Ural, so his ticket is still good.

Scott...it was good to meet you, ridin' blue must agree with you...you are definatly getting the hang of this "woods ridin" thing

Hey "Brakes"...I pleaded your case as best as I could...your fate is in the hands of the "powers that be"

First time out with the A51 crew. Had a blast. Ending the day averaging a good 5-10mph faster with some technical riding thrown in there is a good day for any noob. Def gotta keep my eyes peeled for anymore A51 rides coming up. Wynn, Rico, Buddha, awesome ridin with you guys. Looking forward to seeing some of the pics and footage.

Peter, Did Bill ride his Adventure or the EXC? Wish I would have known there was going to be a big crowd there today.

A52 tomorrow...I do need to get the CRF out for 1 last ride before it leaves.

Tree Dodger going to show tomorrow? I need another Honda rider for support.
