Sweet. Looking at the treads I thought that I had missed the Wedge by a day. I was all sorts of confused.

I hope to see you all there.

found the video of the pick-up technic - could have spared my bike from taking a nap and just show this video:

Shameless promotion of a great group of riders and a fantastic ride...pavement, dirt, water crossings, single track, more dirt - lotsa dirt, pavement= Sweaty Beaver (just to clarify, Scream'n Beaver in the spring, Sweaty Beaver in summer, Fuzzy Beaver in the fall)




(dinner and keg(s) provided.

Link to Sweaty Beaver:

I missed out last night?? Good turn out at the wedge? It was so nice but so much to do at work...

Is anyone riding any dirt locally this weekend? I would sure like to get some seat time again. HAven't ridden since the fall of the XT , which was quite an inconvience we now recount at leisure. Anyone want to go on a ride with no planned adventure?

We ended up at French Broad Brewery Wednesday It was great, one of the owners is a Dual Sport rider and I like their beer better. Not as much parking...

Remind me to never arm-wrestle Cuttle for money.

Great pictures, Fancy!

Good seeing you all at the Wedge!

here are some pictures of my Colorado trip. What a blast it was. Highly recommend taking of for a ride in the Rockies.














Complete gallery here:

I am up for a ride this weekend. I think my KLR's carb adjustment was successful... I am looking forward to testing it out.
