First Drop....

So... Frozen mud.... Thaws quick.

Me and my buddy finally got to take out bikes out. We were looking to take a trip to San Yosidro peak out in NM west of Albuquerque... Too much snow so we stayed on some decent cut roads. At 700 am it was nice and solid. Bikes tracked well. Come 830.... WHOLE different story... I have to say. Picking up the bike isn't that hard if you have the right grip but with wet snow and super slick mud.... It made for some fun....

First picture was our objective....

Second was a nice sunrise shot.

Third was the aftermath and actually my second crash... My buddy is working his was to me and I was traveling in the same direction but the bike spun 180 when it went down.

Last was the mud build up that took a bit to wash off.

All in all it was AWESOME!!!

And NO DAMAGE!!!

I know we all probably have good imaginations....

But actual pictures would be good.

So no pics in the first post, and now every pic is doubled.
That's an average of 1. Perfect!

I have dropped mine more times than I can remember..
Take the time to unload some stuff, if you are really loaded down. I'm somewhat of a geezer though, you younger guys probably horse it right back up..

Actually we were hunting quail and dove. BUT my buddy did have a sheep tag and had he filled it he would have done just that.

What's the riffle for?

After the first time of having to pick up the bike, I was heavily motivated to start doing some strength training. I'm still a long ways away from not breaking a sweat when I pick it up, but I've noticed I feel better. Now, if I can just find out how to write the bike off as a medical therapy device....

Enjoy the bike, they are a hoot!
