No Ride for me - Sorry all

Phil and I tried and we cant even make it out of FT Walton with high water.

Sorry guys but this doesn't make sense; I cant afford to get hurt and mud seems to do that to me.

Perhaps later this weekend.

I am out

Bike fell over this morning and broke the clutch lever...tried to interchange the clutch lever from 3 other bikes in the garage and nothing fits. I apologize since I kind of started this idea. Guess I'll be on bike bandit ordering parts today instead of riding...and putting the 3 other bikes back together.

Just drove up from grandfathers condo in gulf breeze. Sun is out in Milton. Will wait to see if anyone shows. If not, start tracking back east with a pontoon boat.

I feel like a Wuss

Was the time when I rode rain or shine... but I just felt like this was one of those days when I should stay at home...

Its still pouring over here.

I talked to Orange Garret and he said Mike was there so at least two showed up to brave the elements.

Tell us how it went....

Riding in the rain in hot weather = WIN!

Riding in the rain in cold weather = FAIL!

Words of wisdom from your friendly neighborhood chucklehead!

Weather

It has been pretty nice weather over here in Pensacola...partly cloudy, occasional light rain. Based on the radar, it looks like Hutton is right on the edge of showers. Just ordered my new clutch lever...we'll have to see how long it takes to get here before I can ride again .

Vic, got your voice mail. Thanks for the heads up. Will call you later. Gimme showed up at the house just after you called so we went to Brox for 35 miles of fun. No rain and more than 50% was all new to us. OG lead us to a couple new trails a few weeks ago and we just kept wondering around. Lots of goggle cleaning due to low hanging branches but we had fun.


Any change we can start working details for Timberlake on Sunday if the weather works out? I don't have any tracks so will need a guide.

Enjoy the 4th all.

July 4th Hutton Ride

Well, looks like most of the ladies got their panties in a wad today. Somehow Motomike and I managed to get ours untangled. Left out @ 830 for a wonderful 75.8 miles into the "abyss and mysterious caverns of Blackwater forest" or something like that. Got a few sprinkles here and there but no rain. Mike had his torque monster 600r and I was on the trusty 400drz (mini thumper) both had 4 gallons on board so we didn't care when we got to wherever we were going. Rode fast @ times and slow and easy other times. Hell, we even rode some wheelies over the humps (just for you Papawheelie) and didn't blow any O-rings or anything else for that matter. Mike is a great guy, really enjoyed meeting him. Thanks for a fun run. Sorry you guys missed out, next time..........
