Todays Ride

I have a bunch of good stuff but its going to take hours to find the best videos. The GoPro and its wide angel lens sure makes it look like Im miles behind. The truth is Im so close Im dodging all the rocks and mud Mike is throwing at me from the big old KTM.

Dirtmonkey ..... thanks for showing us around. Awesome day. Anytime you want to get out just let us know.

John ...... thanks for letting me ride the beast today. That was fun.

Jeremy .... sorry for the change of plans. The boys said they could get a hold of you but we fell short. By the time we heard anything you had left the area. I owe you a couple beers.

More videos to come.

Big Orange Going Down

I am pretty sure I can hear Chuck laughing at Mike AS he is going down. It was a slow motion tip over. Chuck, the video you got of Mike spinning his way up that hill should be good since you were so close behind. I will have to bring my helmet cam next time so we can get some shots of you though it will be more entertaining if you join in on the crashing and laying down of bikes.

Looks like I missed some good rides today. If anybody rides tomorrow let me know. Things have been crazy. It was my birthday yesterday, I officially got the papers signed and will be out of my house by next weekend. And I got papers back today on the house I will be purchasing. Looks like I will finally be getting that garage and basement I've always wanted.

Nice videos. Is that the private land, or is that mud road?

Very nice...Love basement garages since you can take over the entire basement!!!

Let me know if I can help you with the homeowners insurance...it is what I do!
