First ride of 2011!!!!

Still a little wet and snowy
This was one of the most fun rides of all time! Very challenging riding a 500lb bike in the snow, ice, mud, deep water... all at the same time!








My favorite :)

How the heck do they get the bikes in the bus like that?
Just a lot of sideways dragging?

If the driver slams on the brakes it is going to be a heck of a game of dominos

My bike is such a show off!
















She asked me to share these pics from our recent trip to Death Valley.








Such a tease!









She thinks you may want to check out her other pics by clicking on this Ride Report Link.
