Thursday night for Vietnamese? It's becoming a ritual.

who's paying for my lunch gesture.....



i have an idea.....every ride, each person chips in $5 and that goes to the general fund. we use them to pay for small bithday parties and bar-b-q; and to buy tow ropes, first aid kit, and some supplies.

No need to be acting like the gubberment, Joel.
I'd just like to buy the man a meal. One year closer to death and all that.

no rocks or ruts or tree roots

that's as good a guess as any, I actually think that precisely because that was an easy stretch that I let myself be distracted by Joel with the camera ahead of me, & lost focus for just long enough to lose my line

sure did


I think I was pretty lucky that my fall was into soft dirt & bushes, & that I didn't fall any further down the slope, I seem to be developing a nice bruise on the front of my right thigh, but that appears to be the extent of the damage

JohnGil expected it to, but it started fairly easily & didn't smoke

I took Angeles Forest Hwy to Big T, I hadn't been that way in months, nice ride but so depressing to see all the fire damage

cathy, great to hear you're in good spirit and glad you got home without a sequel.......

your drz400 is amazing, it's almost as bullet proof as the xr400.....


gave away my tow strap in the dv nOObs ride, so i went to rei yesterday and bought a 30 foot tow strap, 1500# load. not a bad idea to bring for those who will be riding mountain side trails.
