Takes you back to 7S08 on the other side of Monti's crash site (closer to camp 5). Comes out on a granite section so you dont really see it from the road. Great trail as well. No gnarly sections so you could go up or down. We went up.

I don't think Eagle Riders is in business anymore. I could be wrong. Before I bought the GS I had taken two rides via their bikes. One Fatboy and one Victory Kingpin (I'd probably go Victory if I was going to ride a cruiser type of bike (or Yamaha)). I low sided the Victory on some crazy road that I picked out back from Santa Barbara. It was epic. Glad I opted for the extra insurance.

Anyway, before I get carried away. Free is always better. I'll ask my friend Dan with a weestrom if he'd be willing. It'll take a day to get back to you. An alternative is Chip and K and I think the Wees will be pretty good two up and with your monster leg-stilts you won't have a problem at the stops/etc.

The xc doesn't have footpegs or I'd offer that up. Just don't have her passenger with Steve or Rob. (unless she wants to race.)

Gary sounds familiar. Did he close down Eagle Riders to start up Cycle Tune? Interesting. I had no idea. What's funny is that I've been to that shop twice but never saw rentals.

No word yet from "Dan" Big Dave.

100% awesome Perry.

I truly wish I had your back yard.

Working on the bikes sucks when your friends are out riding, thanks for the help on the camery door handle had it replaced in about and hour (if my eyes only could see) lucky the fingertip eyes still work.

Looking forward to riding up your way soon.
