A FUN read... THANK YOU!
You better hope Melissa... will NOT call a HITMAN.
She sounds like she is a good sport, what a adventure you two had.
Sounds to me like she is a keeper!

happened the same to me several times (something roughly similar I mean). They point is: STAY CALM AND THINK, things can be managed. In winter...danger is much more real.
However, bravo Skippii!

What about bike recovery?

Thumb Dude...

No problem with the Ninja.... But I think you should at least get some knobbies for it if you are going to do this kind of thing.....

I'm thinking maybe more of that at the beginning of the trip requires less at the end.

Excellent story telling Skippii.

Thanks Mangh!!!!

Skippii,
what a post and what an adventure. You are way ahead of me when it comes to planning. At least you had food!!!
Thanks for the laugh and I'm glad you guys made it out safely.

I can just imagine the hikers disbelief when they run across that street bike way back in the middle of the woods...

Great report and glad you made it out safely. Hope you're able to rescue the lil' Ninja soon.

After you get the bike out you'll need to post the coordinates of the parking spot on the trail. It will be interesting to see what the map software shows for your location.

An Update:

I got the bike out of the woods one week later. "Mntflow" took me out there on his DS to pick up the bike. He made the trip look easy.
With his help, I got it out of the woods in one piece, and rode it home.

He, unfortunately, got a hole in his engine and broken chain from the trip.

A few days later I took it out to ride to South Carolina.
I made it about 35 miles before the engine crapped out.
I'm renting a car tomorrow to drive it. :(

My luck sucks.

Sorry to hear about the bike.

How's Melissa doing, and can we see a picture of her?
She sounds like an awesome gal! Does she have a sister?

Your report made a hellish ride into a comedy-thriller, well done mate.
Glad you both made it out OK .... regards to Melissa and the police.

Cheers from Aus.
