Bradshaw Bomb Run and FFL,

A great time was had by all...

First of all let me say thank you again to those that made this happen

Ma & Pops Gearheart
Gearhart & Lady Gearheart
Bob
Jonz
Brad

I know there is more people that made it all happen but I forget.

Where do I start????
FFL, That is one demanding little loop and I think I got some pictures that really show what its like.





Strega almost there ..........

Ouch !!!!!!


This really is not as easy as some make it look.......

Show off




To Old To Race



Jonz was a stud I think he must have picked up 20+ bikes pulled and pushed and had a lot of good laughs with us.

Jonz in action


Dave cursing me for getting him into this and trying to remember what the this thing that was just pulled of the top of him is




At the Mine






Now on to the Bomb Run

The group 24+




Hey where did you come from SITO ?????




Strega in a pose




Rest stop at to 64 mile mark

A little Lunch at Palo Verde

Man Down ! I think Strega had something to do with it




Pops




Fast Eddy




I had a great time with all of you and cant wait to do it again

See Ya

Scott

While the boys are away... the girl steals my jeep and goes to play, herself.




We found many desert flowers that had bloomed after the last several storms.

Funny part is, I made it to that spot and put my foot down, then the rocks gave way and I fell over. Go me.

The friday loop was awesome. it kicked my butt. I've been less tired on 300 mile rides than this 20 miles or so loop. You gotta try this ride it's the best EVAR!
