Some minor retardation;



This guy came out of the woodwork;



As usual, nothing but a bunch of hardcore dirt riders roughin' it out in the woods;


Good times, guys, and the weather was terrific! Thank you for posting the pics!!!

I should probably go to sicass on Saturday to pick up the slim led tail. That way I can rip the stock one off with wrenches instead of ripping it off with trees during the river jump.

Bigger is not always better. I bet I'm way faster on this than my 950. Don't let that number on the side of the bike fool you, this puppy is pushing almost 50 hp and it feels like I'm riding my trials bike.

Now, we climb somesing. No wait, we drink somesing then we climb somesing.

Just in case Matt rides it you should try using this aftermarket seat. I think it is made by shitter.

St. Helen Videos

Posted some videos of St. Helen from Sunday. Good ride guys - lots of fun. I think the hairy slide where I almost T-boned Adam is in video 2 of 7 at about 18", but am in California-land right now and can't confirm that over my crappy internet connection.
