circle canyon camp

thanks cathy and sopaskids for grabbing the best spot in the camp. same site we had the last time... gorman was surprisingly not crowded...




artboy and i came 30 minutes late...sorry sopasfolks...., billy aka rhinoeater, rustler, and miketoon. there was a total 9 riders who did the morning ride...the renegades and torpedo from san jose joined us in the afternoon.

anyway, in no time we hit the dirt







miketoon got his gloves, pants and jacket from bert's for less than $75



artboy, if you don't wear a leatt neck brace...you get droopy



lots of single track like this one...



mooseboy's 2nd ride with the laweekendriders...



cathy and bob....i love those red hondas.. real riders kickstart...

Tip over....????? ....shiiiitttt.....Billy tried to stuff me in a turn, then as he tried to roost me he 180'd the bike at 20mph....the best part is you could see him laughing as he was going down....

the sopasfolks


artboy and miketoon



the route we took was fun and not too scary. only tough part was the sandwash about a mile long......lots of work, but we all made it through



sopascat status back to nOOb again when in comes to sand....



the worse part......... it has lots of woops






next was the hill climb...easy enough for bob


miketoon did well too.



amber had a good start but forgot to load down the front end and did a 90 degree wheelie


girls from sparta don't cry....i mean south pas



it's steeper than what it looks..

kenny, you need a smug account or other pix hosting sites, otherwise, only 1 pic you can post or maybe up to 2 or 3.

One of these doesn't look like the other. I told the doc the one I came in with looked more substantial.

Mike toon drove himself to the hospital , he did at least let me accompany him.... then he drove himself home afterwards, despite several offers to pick him up

I was only acting as first responder because our genuine one, nurse Amber, was herself among the walking wounded,after we got home she decided to get her leg looked at.......

I genuinely want to thank the ADV folks for getting my bike and gear in my van. Great group to hang with.

Amber the nurse is a must have on these rides. We carry tools and tire patches, she carries the "human body patch kit"

And a really big thanks to that darling lady Cathy for making sure I made it to the ER. (I was ready for pills and ice) I needed the hand holding!

Doc says I'll be as good as new in six weeks.....like I can wait that long....and I'm curious to see what new feels like.
