They cornered me...stuffed me into a laundry bag and tied it up with just my head sticking out...then they left for dinner.
Just couldn't untie that knot with just my teeth..
About 20 minutes later, one of them came back and untied me, but not until after AJ took a picture.

Learned my lesson...only harass one person a day
I'm sure you aren't planning to share the picture, but that's ok...the picture I'm imagining is probably funnier anyway


Edit: got the bike all together and ready to go

Hell yeah! I couldn't have done it without j4s and his son helping change tires - thanks again! Then again it would've made it that much more interesting to see me trying this stuff on worn out 50-50 tires

This video has me even more excited for tomorrow. I wonder if there are any hillclimbs at Wicomico...

There are a few hills on the trails...don't remember any that steep.
But the last time we were there they were working on cutting some new trails...

But thanks for reminding me that I'm really looking forward to tomorrow...Damn I can feel the day dragging already

That soooo does not look fun....

I'd much rather sit home all weekend watching TV.

Oh yeah, there is no way I would consider buying a 250 next year when I get back...

Actually I went out and bought a small two stroke bike for the class so don't expect to see the HP.

Good one! You should've waited a while before saying that...let people wonder

I don't really have any good pants to wear, so I'm just going to bring my mesh road pants. They have armor in them so they should be fine as far as protection goes, I'm just wondering how long it'll take me to warm up in them. Maybe jeans underneath. I've been thinking about some of those Klim pants, but haven't spent the money yet...

If you get the Klim pants make sure they are armor compatible, I have a pair which are not armor compatible and wish they were. Nice pants but they get little use due to the armor situation.

Even though Whizzkid says the stuff in the video is easy it made me a bit nervous, I am still looking forward to the class, but I really want to get the most out of it. If its muddy and sloppy I am just not so sure how much I will actually get out of the class other than tired and muddy, of course that just makes it a good Army day!

Thanks for the heads up. I remember asking you about yours when we rode to the lighthouse last year, but I couldn't remember what you said about them.

I'm a little nervous about the class, too. No turning back now though! I can't see myself getting that bike up on the front wheel though - never worked when I tried, but I'm probably doing something wrong.

If you don't mind bringing them I'd like to check them out. I usually wear a 32, so it might work. PM coming
