Go To Hell (continued)

And we made new friends . . .

After some hard core riding, we stopped and posed for pictures . . .




We wondered how a 5-year old dirt bike could be this dang clean . . .


And finally, exhausted, we lay down for some well-deserved rest!

Missed it by 50% Not bad for a guy that didn't make the ride. I'm curious though. How did the guys from Devils Lake get to the Dam Site before you?

I think we rolled in with the main group. We had some miscommunication and
ended up waiting at my place on somebody who was already ahead of us so we had to do some catching up. I hate having to ride hard and fast

Dual sporters in Waterloo?

Tammy and I rode about 50 miles of gravel yesterday. Alot of riders out. Passed a group of about 5-6 dual sports headed east on Waterloo Rd at M52. Not a common sight. Anyone we know?

My friends and I rode this loop yesterday as well. 6 of us started out on the edge of Dexter around 10am and rode south, counter clockwise. I think we passed your group at one point.

Such a beautiful day to be out. By 2pm there were a lot of bikes and nice cars out enjoying the weather!

Nice pictures, Randy (well . . most of them anyway ) thanks for sharing them.

Great company and weather, the riding was fun too.

Randy, Todd and myself didn't ride more than 15 miles of pavement all the way back home from Jackson.


Poor Duc, looking all castrated without knobbies . . C'mon Steve, give that bike it's balls back.


Matwood's 950 came out of the closet this weekend, roostin and barkin and going sideways through the corners

Had a good time too. The Duc did fine, once I found the traction limit in that first corner . I did drop the air pressure to 25 psi which I think helped. Maybe I should have gone to 15 psi to really heat up the tires

Fall Idle Wild ride

It was a great weekend to rip up the dirt at Idle Wild. Had some dust control Saturday morning, but stopped raining about 7 am, which made the trails ready for us at 9:30. We had a chain of 9 orange riders on Saturday and 5 Sunday.

Russ,

Thanks for the extra hiking trails on Sunday
