Man, those conditions on the Sunday ride looked PRIME! Would have loved to join but my parents were visiting from MI. Took my Dad out on the SV and DR on a tarmac ride around the Rock Store, which was also very nice!

What a Day!

Had a great ride yesterday out in Mojave, got a chance to tag along with Eric and his group of "A" riders. (I now know how Joel feels). These boys are crazy fast and don't stop for shit. Mike had to fake a break down just so he could rest. (I was more then happy to play along)

Ami, Rider and all others are all great riders. I am proud to be riding with those non-n00b ones, eventhough I can not really keep up with them..
I was so excited and this is what happened when they all watch me riding towards them:

Water Fall

I have been told, " If you want to become a better rider you have to ride with people who are better then you" about half way threw yesterdays ride I wanted to kick the guy who said that to me in the balls!

I had a blast trying to keep up with these crazies yesterday, Most of them have been riding since they were puppy's and the years of experience really shows. I didn't get the chance to take many pictures (not like I was ever in front of these guys) but I did get a shot Eric going down this water fall I don't think I could have walked down this but Eric had no problems.

end of rowher.....ARTESIAN RD. (the easy way)

waited for the rest of the crew and no show. we figured there are 4 of them and they can take care of themselves, so we move on to the next ridge.



cut across spunky. green valley got their share of snow too




on the way to the top of tule ridge



alon




though this rider is a rogue and showed up without notice...he did the most honoroble job of sweeping. or was he just waiting for me to screw up and capture it on video?....




and he tailgated me most of the time



jim also shared the sweeping duties



the new kid on the block




awesome SE. btw, noticed the rainbow?.....




the ripper and another awesome SE



upside down rainbow...
