Wed afternoon anyone?

I'm going to ride Wed afternoon/evening if anyone can play hooky...

Hick: that bites.

BrokenLegGuy: that bites. I don't trust mud AT ALL. I would have tiptoed through that slop on my light bike. I twisted my knee bad going 1 mph in mud.

I broke the top of my tibula off rolling backwards on a trials bike. Doesn't take much
to end up with a car ride home.

8 " vertical crack on my right tibia. 6-8 weeks recovery depending if pins are needed. Minimum 6 wks.

And it's my driving leg...no driving!

Stooopid mistake. First three had dry lines and my line looked dry. Nope, only the crust. Hard lesson learned.

[QUOTE=pluric;22182121]Here comes Kevin (2wheeladv) and ride leader.



Hey Pluric good RR and nice touch with the humor. Sounds like 2wheeladv will be out of commission for a while. Might be able to get that Truimph real cheap now

bummer, but look at the bright side, in the long run these generally heal up better than ligament or cartilage injuries. Keep us up to date on your progress. Hope to ride with you again after you heal

Bike is up and running again. Simple fix, just hard to get to.

I have six days before I need to be back to work...probably wont make it all the way to Mexico, but damned if I'm not going to try. I've only had one full day of off-road since Friday and I am hungry for more

Damn! That sucks, but this is a good point....the bones will usually come back to 100% after a bit. I've never been on mud so slippery as we have in Utardia....it scares me pretty bad now on the big bike. Hope you heal up well!

As I recall you don't need mud to test gravity.

Nice find Pluric...I'm starting to see a pattern with your involvement on each ride. I'm beginning to think we are your entertainment.

Nooo. Who me? Enjoy watching the carnage? Dan's tank slapper and your mud bath.
Hick's cow bitch slap, cliff dive and record setting 950 drops on the Utard 700.
Frog's new 990 turn signal removal technique.
Fano's ability to vent riding pants with a decent Tiger drop and slide.
KMC1's random "Here's a nice spot to bust some shit up".
Utahquido river wash job.
Todd-Squad and his sleeping Strom......

Ya know, you might have a point. I guess it is pretty entertaining.

I have the photos to back all this up. Thanks to you all for making the rides
special for the rest of us!
