...and you didn't tell me about this?!

Thumbs up, no one seriously hurt but I am sure Kevin's ankle will be a little stiff for a while.

You will have to ask Cathy for the track, she had her GPS, I lost mine over in the Charleau Gap river about a month ago.

Spent the better part of an hour this morning trying to get it to start--finally got it started and warm enough to rev. Old carbie was all fubar, so I built a parts bike carb in my kitchen, and slapped her in. Now she's more like a one kick wonder.

Long story short, I'm needing a 'shake down cruise' something that's not too far out of the range of the lumina and little cycle trailer incase I need to retrieve it.

I'll be headed towards Reddington from the Bway and Pantano area about 0930. If this sounds like a possibility, lmk.

i rode around in the santa ritas following random steep ass rocky trails that a goat would think twice about. had at least a dozen slow motion falls from lack of footing and huge rocks bullying my front tire. i wasn't getting the usual traction i'm used to... could've just been me having an off day.

That sounds good to me... Circle K on Tanque Verde east of Houghton @ 0945 sound good??

Anyone else want to join the 'shake down cruise'???

i see it on amazon for 35+shipping, only other place is direct from austin's website which is in pounds sterling of course.

I'm wondering if the amazon one is legit though looks kinda bootleggy to me http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...sr=1-1&seller=
