Mongo said all that years before he got a real dirt bike, but I did the whole thing from Loon lake to the part where our resident expert said "its all just a trail ride from here to Tahoe" and then rode back to Loon Lake that day on a KTM440EXC. Had turrible leg cramps in the truck the way back home on Ice House Road. I did it on Mongo's new bike. But on the other hand, I was younger then. Probably the age he is now...............Having said all that, I'd give it another shot on the DRZ, but this time I wouldn't say OK to the hard splits.................BTW, this is just to get a rise out of Mongo,,,,,,,

Exactly! You get to ride... and she gets rid of you for the weekend! It's perfect.


FYI... I tried the same logic on my wife for our upcoming 10th... she didn't go for it either.

You guys just married the wrong gals.

I've spent the last 15 or so wedding anniversaries riding with my groom


Maybe we'll go back to the Dusy Ershim in July to celebrate our 17th.

It'll be 35 years, still don't have her trained.

That was a hoot of a ride on our Trials bikes.

You'll have to come out and play on some of 'Uncle Rick's Special Shortcuts' to get ready.

Have a great time Brent, guess I should have looked at this thread earlier, and don't forget the picts.


Congrats on the 20 years of married-ness too.
