Trail ride at Brushy Mountain

A small group of us from the Charlotte area are going to Bushy Mountain Motorsports Park to ride on Saturday (19th). We plan to take the bikes in the truck (1.5 hrs of pavement on my DRZ with knobbies doesn't make for a good time) Right now it is Scott Davis, Maffud and myself. Nitroroo might be joining us as well. We should have at least one spot in a truck available if you need a ride, or feel free to meet us there. We are planning to be there by 10 am. I am going to be on the street bike a lot tonight and tomorrow, but I will keep an eye on my messages. Anyone is welcomed to join us.

Entrance fee is $25. I haven't ridden here before but I've heard it is a lot of fun. I expect some challenging trails

Tough decision: bring the dogs, or bring the girlfriend tonight...

I think she wins. The dogs will not be pleased. They were really looking forward to begging for pizza!

Good seeing everyone today. I like our little get togethers, like to thank JoeyBones for starting this tradition.

Good finally meeting you Kevin, seen you around but never properly introduced. Maybe we can do some big bike dirt sometime. It will have to big bike girly dirt for me though..





Oh and little dog, nice seeing you again too.

I think we had 18 folks tonight, and I really enjoyed seeing everyone. Kinda funny how the more people show up the fewer I actually get to talk to with the tables all in a line like that!

Well, all this rain has put a damper on our Brushy Mtn plans. Looks like we'll have to try for another day.

Ok guys. I'm going to list this for sale here for a few days first before putting it in Flea Market....

>>>>>>>

*** SOLD ***

The pictorial documentation of the project:

I forgot to take a pic before I took the wood off...


Here's the added third-support...


Freshly sandblasted...


Applying the primer...


Blue blue everywhere (I still find blue paint drips on clothes and shoes and stuff)...


Trailer hardware porn...


This joint looked like a place where water might sit, so we broke out the silicon..


I even went to a real lumberyard for this (not one of the big box stores)...




The rest of these were taken this past week...










$1,925 Cash or PayPal. (the Condors and extra mounts alone run ~ $450 or $500)

Joe
