I am horrible example, don't do or listen to anything I say. really.

If you get a shifter that isn't rubber tipped it will break that habit. I ride (or at least when I used to ride) Alpine Star Tech 3's my favorite of the cheap MX boots.

Wynn,

No worries buddy. You were just speaking the truth. I was just being a overly sensitive. The truth is, we do all need some brutally honest tough love sometimes-especially when our riding buddies safety is concerned. Chris and I were talking about that the other day.

On a different note, I will hopefully be getting the staples out Monday morning, and soon healed quickly after that. I was very fortunate to not have damaged anything severely affecting my leg mobility.

I got my staples out and should be good to go in two weeks. It is absolutely crazy how the body heals.

Great news Timmy!

If anyone is interested, I'm riding out to Uwharrie to camp the weekend of the 20th. I'll be on the S10, so staying off the ohv trails, but plan to ride all through the forest and surrounding area. All welcome!

I'm in on the uwharrie trip! That sounds like a blast. I might even be out of work AND my bike will have the new pipe!
Here's a pic of my mistress at North Topsail today. Nice Harley pulled up there too!

Sounds good Kennedy. We can firm up plans next week.

On another note, sorry for the long distance cell cam shot, but the azalea "queen" and her court stopped by the hospital yesterday. Check out the group of New Hanover Co and WPD finest that were with her.

What a nice day for a ride. Took my wife out on the new bike. Did 123 miles in 5 counties.

Crossing the ferry in Bladen


Short cut from Hwy11 to Hwy53


Cutting thru Green Swamp from Delco to Winnebow

I rode in Holly Shelter yesterday, and aside from a few huge mud holes, the conditions were perfect. There were very few spots with deep loose sand, most of it was well compacted from the rain a few days ago, making the better part of it very fast. By fast I mean I was able to get the S10 up to 80+ mph through much of it. Enjoy it before it dries up again.
