Terrible News!

That's awful news!

When I first read that Flanny got hurt (earlier in the thread) I was hoping it wasn't too bad. That knee injury really sucks but it could have been worse.

I'm one of Flanny's riding buddies and it sucks to see him (or anyone) get hurt. Glad to hear he is ok.

Take care, drop me an email since you'll be spending some unplanned time in front of the computer...

The parking lot at Mad Bro. Great little shop, btw. Had the clutch fluid and heat shield I needed.



They also had this cute little thing.

Another obligatory shot of my bike.

Stop with the Sympathy!

Oh for crying out loud - he didn't die. He just fucked his knee up really bad. It's not like he can't ride. After a good night of sleep Gino loaned him his Asterisk knee brace and we set out for an "easy" day. Here's Flanny riding with his torn meniscus taking it easy...



Okay, off to dinner - more later. But seriously, don't be giving this clown any sympathy.

I didn't take too many photos on this ride - all my energy went into the riding.

Ok, that's it. After looking at that picture the sympathy switch is OFF. I was thinking he couldn't ride anymore and would be stuck in the condo. After looking at those "injured Flanny" pics I thought it was real. Obviously he's a drama queen - should have known better (the pink dress)...

White Rim and Shafer


I had to splurge on a cool t-shirt. This place is a real trip if you ever visit Moab.



Gregor is obviously thrilled with his custom shirt.






We got a little dusty today.



Gino's center knobs.

Since Flanny was loath to stay in the condo all day while we rode and since we all wanted a recovery day it seemed like a nice day of two track was in order. We attempted to ride White Rim but with a safety range of 80 or so miles we didn't get that far since the trail hardly gets going until 25 miles out of town.

A wrong turn put us onto the incredible Shafer switchbacks. Sadly I didn't shoot a photo as I thought we were on White Rim and would be turning around but it took us up to the highway where we decided to head up to Gemni Bridges and down to the Willow Flats road the back way into Arches. John has had some great shots this trip so I'm crossing my fingers he got some shots of the Shafer switchbacks.

Anyway, here's some more shots of us bombing the jeep road into Arches.


Tom and I kicking up dust on the valley floor.


And hitting the gully for some air. This was a fun little spot for our jump-inexperienced crew.


Chris is getting used to his new 450.


That is using your travel. Not bottomed as the suspension is progressive and plush - Super Plush in fact.


John pulls some air time.

We're not sure what we're going to do tomorrow. Flanny feels good but tricky trails that require dabbing or anything really technical might be too difficult or risky. There's a wealth of stuff to choose from so we'll pour over our maps and see what we find.

Sucks Flanny hurt himself, but he's lucky he can still ride. I busted my wrist on the way back from the Trans-Lab (eight weeks ago today, actually) and had to put the bike in a U-Haul to get it home.

Great RR so far! I need to get out west with a dirt bike.
