Looking good (as well as can be expected anyway). Take care of yourself and recover fast, there's riding to do.

I agree! I thought it was just my pizza that sucked! They must have changed something because I really didn't enjoy mine last night.

Speedy recovery.

Guys, I want to thank everyone for the invite last night. We must have really bad pizza here in Seneca, SC because my meat lovers pie was great.

I'll be back, you guys made us feel welcome and we enjoyed the conversation. The surprise for us was that even with a wide range of ages and backgrounds, everyone came together to enjoy the stories and planning of past and future rides. The perfect setting and theme for dinner and a beer!

Thanks again. Gordon/RTS

I think that was me. Glad you missed the hole!

I was talking with Augie and saying I have fell for the too relaxed riding trap a few times. He was sharing the same. Your on a long trip, your getting really comfortable with riding and not paying as much attention as you should and BAM! Some sorta surprise! Augie spoke of a cattle guard that someone strung barb wire across, and did not mark it. Ugh!

Gordon and I got comfy last year on the TAT. I was leading, in Mississippi and we were zooming along about 50 mph on a gravel road and came over a rather sharp rolling hill (about the 10th in a series) and BAM, less than 100ft the road changed to very deep sugar sand!!

Took us 45 mins to get out of there!

We're like that. It's a cool get together and I love every one I can attend.

Well, off to get ready for a week on the road. Need to make sure the bike is ready for the Assault on Wolf Creek and pack and everything else I need to get done. I may need to hitch a ride with someone too, the Husky certainly won't do the pavement there.

I won't be riding my DRZ that far either, so I will be trucking up. I could fit two in the truck if you don't have another ride.

Trail riding

A few pics from our ride this morning. Luckily the rain held off for the most part.





My phone+low light+ moving image=fuzzy pic!



And a creek crossing. Not bad when the water is down!
