probably...started with 30 psi this am....did you see me kicking my front tire at the gas station?....Must have been a leak already...like a dumbass I ignored it as my imagination...made it 15 minutes down the freeway and pow....we changed the tube on the side of the freeway but there was so much sand blowing around from the passing trucks I think I need to change it again....

just walked in....this must be one of the top 3 saturday rides!


no dust, great traction, no carnage, lots of riders, good lunch, and we covered a lot of miles today!

thanks guys for coming out and sharing the fun. sito, don, and john...appreciate you guys taking turns and leading the ride from one point to another.

i'm glad to see several fresh faces and thanks for trusting us...

we started with 18 riders, and then picked up elevator junky along the way, and at the end 8 riders rode till dark....

it will be hard to top this ride...

Wasn't feeling as lazy today....and I had a spare tube...so....no AAA....

I don't know if it paranoid or prudent..but I already ordered a new front tire...just seems hard on the tire to have a blowout then run it to the side of the road when flat...makes the rubber hot to the touch....

I didn't take many picts, but here is what I got.

Elevator Junky on the screamin' smoker (can you find him?)... "the fool's gonna do it".



Dang that's steep.
Gettin' kinda squirrely there.


Hmm... this doesn't look right, the bike farther up the hill than the rider.


But they were soon reunited. Bet he was glad it was a relatively lightweight 2-smoker at this point.


Just to set the record straight, he cleared the hill on a 2nd run. Way to go EJ.


Sorry I didn't get all the names out there, hell of a lot of 'Zuki 400s though.

Not sure who?


Sopascat on full sized wheels. I think she likes it.


SogniX on the little Yami with rather street oriented tires... no problemo.


Bunch a damn hooligans, and this was only about half of them.


Elevator Junky crusin' 4N24 after conquering "the HILL"... ain't nuthin' but a thang.


Artboy, my homie from the 'hood. Just another Eagle Rawker.


A little air time from the 'Zuki, sorry I missed another name... and a few more who got it levitating.


And lastly, at least in terms of my picts, the "anti-'Zuki". A yeller one in a field of blue and white. Followed closely by Captain Kaos, Super Noob!




Well, that's all I got, sorry I missed a few. Thanks all for comin' out and making it a fun ride.
