The "what the puck just happened" look on his face right after impact wasn't all that funny at the time...

ooops my mistake, klr is a big bike and sometimes referred as a big pig.


my point is not in the details but to remind everyone that on small bikes while on dirt, we tend to be more aggressive and the risk becomes proportional; that what it seems in the case of the majority that are on the list.


good to hear no one went to the er this weekend......

Real fun ride yesterday guys! I can't wait to do it again.
Next time I promise I'll ride sweep, so as not to be such a clean air hog. And sorry to FMF punk for following the wrong group at the end when I told him I'd ride Cleghorn with him, by the time I realized I was following the wrong group I had no idea where to find the dirt group. Too many orange bikes and I got confused

We did 90 miles plus today, it was a super fun ride for
us. There were hardly any one on the trails.

Thank Joel for the GPS tracks!

My apologies Joel, my memory sometimes fails me. Jan 2010 was your rehab.

That sand wash at the end of the day was....special. Get up and steer with the pegs and gassit is what got me thru. Had to stop and "re-group", but I made it. Fun day.

Motorcycles are dangerous big and small I think we all know that, I doubt anyone thinks that because there on a sub 650 bike that some how there safer. My worst wreck was on a XR80, I think people ride more aggressively on smaller bikes because you can ride them closer to there peak potential performance which in my book = more fun!!!and most of the time the more fun you are having the less concerned with safety you are, any redneck with a beer and bottle rockets can tell you that. A big part of the appeal of motorcycles is the danger and that we are in an exclusive club of organ donors with a "lust for life". I'm not saying don't ride smart or skip on safety gear but if you ride sooner or later your going to hurt yourself. All the guys on that list are smart, capable and responsible riders but sooner or later your number gets called.

I get beat up on whichever bike I ride.

GS slow speed get off = torn Rotator cuff
XR4 slow speed get off = torn MCL

Proabably good I don't have a third bike, I might tear something in the middle.

Maybe I should go back to riding jetskis.....

Poor Paul, the invisible loner. At lunch yesterday, Jeff asked him if he had ever taken a Jimmy Lewis class before. Now you've forgotten him. He drove you to the event and back and shared a room with you. Clearly he was there since he is in this picture.

I always considered
0-100cc youth
125cc-350cc small
400cc-600cc middle
650cc-1000cc Big
1100cc+ Huge

For off road purposes.
