I'll have to rethink next year though...

So far a Joe Rocket jacket, Klim jacket, Klim pants, and a set of tools. You didn't win this stuff you earned them.

Howdy. I was the rider in that group who was mostly useless getting the hack up off ya. Saw the SMIB sticker and was wondering if I'd see a report... Glad it was just bruising.

Was a good time overall, but definitely not big bike friendly. First time there and was thinking of doing it on my wee; that would have been a terrible idea. Was able to borrow a tw200 which made it a fun day, but the option labeling was maybe a little optimistic...

PachmanP, thanks again for the assist. I'm glad you left the part out about me screaming like a little girl. Would have made a hell of a picture. I think the bike was actually still in gear and running. Next year maybe I'll just show for the food, t-shirt, and prizes.

No pie, but they did have donuts, crumb cake, and ice cream sundays. Almost makes up for the lack of pie and beating I took.
