Special thanks again to Todd and Terry for the push on the first hill, and for everyone's patience with my hill struggles. Would NOT have made it without you!

Gonna have to practice my hill climbing techniques...........

Stellar ride report, as usual, Terry!

WOW! That "bonus" trail was brutal!

Thanks to everyone who helped me! I was a whipped puppy dog when we finally got back to the trucks...

A BIG thank you to Fast Phil and TC for bringing the Bacon!

I really liked how HoosierDaddy kept telling me,"the next one is easy" I love you Brother, but one of these days.......To the moon Allyn!! I forgot to give you your head gasket, I will mail it.

Thanks for hosting us again HTM! Thank you Nightstalker for the Awesome report!

See all soon!

Big E...glad to hear from you. I was worried when we didn't see a post from you Saturday night or Sunday. The ride was not meant to be a "killer".

I should have went back on the road, but I didn't want to puss out. Funny, that has never bothered me before?? Anyway, Great ride!

How come it always looks so easy in the pictures and on film?? As I look at all of the footage, I say that doesn't look that hard?? BUT, it is!

What do you think about my new sig line, "If my Technique improves, so will my riding" I like that, thanks ND!

BTW, thanks for the concern HTM! I am tougher than I would appear.....

That looks like a trail for my girl friends 250 super sherpa, rather than a heavy bike

I had my 450 pinned on some of the climbs, you had to build momentum where you could to clear the loose stuff.

Doesn't a 250 S.S. weigh the same as my 990??

Bring that bad boy on out next time......

That little 250 SS is quick! It doesn't weigh anything, it is easy to throw around, plus it has first gear that is so low you can creep when needed without clutching all the time. It's nice that at the end of the day your not beat to death from muscling weight all day. I bought it for her to ride but the bonus is I enjoy it from time to time on Jeep trails

I almost made it on this trip but a wedding had me tied up. (NOT MINE)

Boy, if I had a nickle for every guy who said "I almost made it for this ride" after the ride is over!

I'd be willing to do this one again, just to watch
