That's funny. This video proves that target fixation works even when you ride backwards.
Glad to know it was only a small gravity pull at slow speed.

This stage in a mobius trip is like xmas eve.

You have seen the box and heard the rattle and know you're going to love it.

It's sooooo hard to wait for morning.

Nite all

Backsliding

I always feel ride report pix never adequately show the "steepness" of what we ride. The good Doctor's slide backwards is about the best illustration of incline I've seen to date. True 'hill climb" antics!

More than one million views

Out of an estimated 20,000 threads (40 per line x 500 pages) Yes i see that there are 733 pages, a bunch seem to have been moved.

There are currently only 11 Ride Report threads that can claim the additional fame of being members of the 1 million + views club.

Glen is way closer to his 3 millionth view than the 1 mark.
Doug is here twice...looks like your dirtster is a bit more popular than the panhead.
Clayton appears to engage his readers so much in his stories that they are to mesmerized to reply.
David and Francine - Best RR overall IMHO

Would be great if the mods could let us know how many subscribers each of them have.

feels like I'm watching the ketchup slowly creep towards the mouth of the bottle, you know, before we had the squeeze kind. Even smacking the bottom of it doesn't seem to make it move any closer towards the edge. Can you hear it now? "Anticipation, anticipation...it's keeping me waiting".....

Checking in every day.........I know it will be worth the wait

Come on Rocky

Been reading this RR for two weeks now - neglecting the bathroom I'm trying to renovate at home and sleep has also been a bit less important, working fulltime.... I was surprised that I caught up with you guys finally and now..... Mobius9 - come on I can't wait reading about it, you really are the shit please give it to us. I must say I admire your stile and how nice that you are in it as a couple - sweet I'd say! Beeing a Swede it's biketime now with summer and you really inspire to do some dirt.... Loveya!

This is just a cool picture. My wife and I started riding a couple of years ago. We are still doing trips on the pavement, but one day.

Thanks for taking the time for such a detailed report. It's a fun read.

You guys sure aren't doing a very good job of perpetuating the New Yorker sterotype. ;-)

Is it something we said?

I'm starting to feel like a kid on prom night waiting for my date to come out of the bathroom....I hope she didn't leave with the football team again.
