No comprendo... maybe I just ride for fun instead of the competitive aspect of it all. I'll never understand.
Eloy,

You know whenever you get any competitive riders together (even for a fun ride) there's gonna be a race. Hare scrambles are full of incidents just like that. Looked to me like the guy was trying to ride over his head thinking he could beat the guy catching up. You know he heard the guy behind him.

On another note, I'm on a sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands but will be in Lakeland the 20-21. Let's hook up and ride the VanFleet!

I might need to borrow one of your road bikes though.

I don't have any road pedal bikes!

I do however have dirt/dual sport bikes... and you're welcome to ride one if you like.

Competition

As some of you know, I no longer ride events where there is single track, or competition. Raced for too long and no matter how much I tell myself I will ride only for fun and at my own pace... it wont happen. Almost got me in Perry Mountain that Friday when we hit the single tract for fun!

As someone once said if you have more than one motorcycle you have a race.

Anyway - nuff said about that.


BTW - in SERA Enduros when a fast guy catches you, they will "woo woo" as a warning (no horns of course). Smart thing to do is pull over or give them a nod of the helmet or a wave to let em know you will move ASAP... which may not be instantly. They may wait or they may just come around anyway.

In Hare Scramble they just come around period. "Racin aint for pussies mates." not my quote.

Ridin Karick

Me and college boy got out early to Karick, Hansel and Greteled it out as far as we could and found our way back twice. Did two tanks and it was hot but not unbearable. No other bikes in the woods and even the campground was sparsely populated for such a nice weekend. No issues all good.

Spooky out there at night may need to hook up a set LEDs for night running. Shit load of wildlife seen as well slow it down out there is a good rule of thumb.
Saw some fresh bike tracks along 211. Fun little burm to jump near the Ranger camp near creek crossing. Was not there yesterday
