Sorry about the camera Alan!
Damn I have been looking every day to see what you two intrepid ride reporters could get up to.
It sounded rather ominously good.
Trent can you fill in the blanks? Maybe even some Crowsnest video???Something to live vicariously by until I can get out for another rrrrriiiipppp!!!

Cory congrats on the sale. You will have to add (sold) behind your 450 EXC tagline!

So does this mean you are still selling your 640 or will you keep it now?

I'm heading out to McLean tomorrow night, 5:00 at Fisher East. If nobody from RMDRA (dirt bike club) shows, I can meet you at the store at 6:00. If you feel adventuresome you could ride with us, if anyone else shows up...

I ride my DR-Z with the dirt bike guys normally.

[jerk]I ride quickly and on some tough stuff, I don't know if a bigger bike could handle it??[/jerk]

I am on CRF 450X so not that big. I like to ride quickly but may need some help on the really hard stuff. Sort of like skiing, I can whale on the blues but need to take some time and the blacks and double blacks. lol.

Nope, that's not a big bike, it's probably lighter than mine... I'll probably have trouble keeping up with you. Do you know fisher east? I know McLean West fairly well, but would like to ride Fisher East so i can see some new trails. I'm hoping to meet some guys there at 5.

Yeah, that looks like it. 5 km south of the store on the east side of the road. The first major clearing.

Nice ride tonight, the weather was perfect! It was nice to meet you Dave and Andrew. Hope that pumpkin finds some back brakes soon! I'll update with pics tomorrow.

Where is everyone riding this weekend? I think I'll be taking out a couple of girls on saturday to teach them how to ride my KX100 but I am still not sure about sunday and monday. I'm up for thrashing on my 640 since I'm not motivated to sell it anymore. It's still for sale but the $4800 is very firm. Still a great deal for someone and I probably shouldn't sell it but it'd force me to get something new next year. Who knows...

So what's up for the weekend??

I will be out at Mclean on Sunday/Monday. Got some friends who quad that are camping there.

Would be nice to go for a bike ride rather than riding with quaders...

Good ride guys. GiantJoe doesn't joke when he says single track. Single width of a tire is single track. ;-) It was nice to see some new areas for sure. Only a couple of get offs, so all in all a good night of riding. Looking forward to the weekend and next Thursday night.

Later
