Good Morning AJ!

What's on your list today?

I'm two people down at work lately so I do too much work while day dreaming of how to afford a used Honda 450X and riding with my buddies! Soon one of those things will come true. Is it April yet?

It has snowed EVERY DogDamn morning here at my house for what seems like a month, now...
I get a few miles down the road and it's turned to rain.
I see Ladukebob's bike parked in town, while I drive by in a snow covered cage
Big Orange is lonely

Do they make a track kit and ski for the 990? If'n they do I suppose you'd need a winch too for self extraction from drifts.

When I went there something felt spooky in that area. It's still really cool.

Free Bridge

I had this thing in my garage and I though "what the hell, I think I'll do a trail".



I first heard about Free Bridge last year. I took the big GS there and felt it was somewhat of a challange on such a big bike. I told my brother about it and he attempted to do it on his Buell XB12X. He caved in his muffler than ruined a tire halfway down. The WR250R was way more fun on this route. Here I'm halfway down.



At the bottom next to the tracks.


This is the first part of the trail, its steeper on the lower end.
