Whoever ended up behind me in the dirt...thanks for your patience with my blazing 20mph speed. Watch out! I'll run you over...eventually.

Thanks to sopascat for waiting where the trails did a split and keeping me from getting lost forever.

My legs are screamin' from standing on the bike so much yesterday. Looks like I will be coming home late three nights a week...gym time.

I nearly dropped the bike a half dozen times. I was too scared to actually drop it. And besides, I'm not too good at picking up my own bike. (Another reason for some gym time.) There were times I was wondering if I was actually going to make a turn while standing. That's a technique I will have to perfect with time in the saddle...er...standing over it.

I think you did well, on the way up on Pacifico you were focused and stood on the pegs even at the corners...that's a good start. We plan to hold a nOOb riding clinic when Trailtrick gets back from Chile. There are a lot of good riders here who will be there to help. Also, once you have all the protective gear, your riding will become more aggressive.

I rode slab again today....like I have a choice....


little look at the normal Sunday group

The motards....the Hp2 wants to be a KTM....



For Dunerat....if you must ride an American V-twin....





Classic



This was a trip...rode it for a few minutes....an Electric dirt bike for those "Stealthy" missions....all torque but no engine braking...would be fun for a day or so...but at $11,000 I think sales will be ....ummm....light...

Yeah, lack o'gear kind of had me terrified of dropping it.

Lessons definitely needed. I kept hearing here something about someone needing to get off their seat...I saw Cathy doing it...so I tried it. It helped. I will be the first in the noob clinic!

If I want to shop at Chaparrel, I have to spend some money on the Jeep first so I can get out there.

And about that electric bike...nah...$11k and no engine braking. Where's the control? Not a bargain. JMHO.

Yeah, but that seat...it's got an airflow groove down the middle but the sides must dig something awful into your inner thighs. I wouldn't want to be on it for long.

And that front fork is butt ugly.

I like the rest of it though.

the groove channels a lot of fresh air and it's good for the body!

First time in the dirt, standing most of the time, get her some gear & another ride or 2 & she'll be blastin' past me......

Trailtrick promised to bring back a porcupine seat cover for my bike, maybe we can ask him to bring home extras.......
