Weaver Dawg and I got about 100 miles of Amish roads in today. Great day for a bike ride, nice and sunny.

I don't know the channel number for your system but it's 267 on DirecTV. Anyway it's over now I only caught the end of it. It looked pretty cool though, they were following mountain bikes along the trail, got to see a lot of familiar sights. You can stream it on NetFlix, I'll be doing that tomorrow night.

Streamed it on Netflix the other night. A Lot of drama and emotions! But hey it was a race and most of them got spead out and were enduring days of solitude. People were dropping like flys due to mental and physical pain.


I'm glad I had you FF's to keep me company and help me get thru the tough spots. The comradery means everything!!! To do it over I would like to go just a bit slower and smell the flowers a little more. But I wouldn't mind having the same crew and a few more to share the adventure with. You guys were the best and I hope in the future I'll have enough time to do the full length.......minus fleecers ridge

I posted a few more pics on Kev's thread and made a little fun of Bob cause he's not within arms length.

OBTW I got 4k out of my rear 606.........about 1,200 blacktop. I could run it about 500 more but hey the riding season is coming up, so time to start fresh.

DCrider, here's my '72 Tiger in the fall of '72 soon after getting the Windjammer on.


Here it is in the spring of '73 after I decided it should be black.


Here's my first Suzuki. It's either a '70 or '71 RM-125.


I'm still looking for the Super Rat pics.

I was kinda disappointed in that film. They could have done so much more with it, but it turned out kinda bland. I still enjoyed it just because I have emotional memories about riding part of it with you guys.

That's not quite true, there are a few pretty gnarly sections. But yes, there are bypasses.

I may be doing the CDR up to Salida again in the latter part of August so I can hit the TAT out to the west coast.

+1 on the no Fleecers ridge, and everything else you said about our trip.



I'm with Pat about the movie. I've had it on the DVR for a while now... It is cool to see some of the locations, and that so many badass bikers jump ship before reaching the end.

ps.. my T.63 Mich rear tire, looks as new. 15000 miles and still cooking.

How do they compare with the TKC's Jack?

This guy had about 5500mi. of mixed riding on a little Bimmer. Not bad especially when you factor in the price.
