We must have some new sand pix around Central to add to this. We haven't posted any for a few years. Lots of "pleasant" memories and always entertaining.

This time of year... Fluffy ice is like sand to us.

Well, those of us who still ride when the temps drop...

Seems like yer skinny self scooted right up it. Some of us bigger guys have to more closely evaluate the impact of the laws of physics.

Being a doctor, you can afford a more powerful bike.





Speaking of medical professionals, here is a picture of two doctors together (DR Zed and Gasdoctor). They must be consulting over the prospects of someone getting up one of those climbs.




Booms, you should have Ben set up your carb for you.

I think they're wondering why you said "Hold my bike, I'll be right back" and skedaddled up the hill

Ben was certainly keeping his exhaust valves well lubricated!

The only way I could get my bike up that slippery son-of-a-gun was to lighten the bike by 100 lbs - as in have Zed ride it up.

His going over the bars in the fashion he did was one of my incentives for knocking off that 10 day wilderness first responder course.
