Pyro256, women and Karma

So, last saturday, my buddy Pyro and I are headed to work, pull up to the Job get out of the truck and both say screw this, lets ride!! Which really works for me because, well, I run the company.

Winter riding is over, no more gearing up so its hard to move and no more frost

I tend to ride most of the winter, if there's not much snow because theres not much landscaping work in the winter.
I guess the first order of business is to get rid of that dam Goldwing helmet Pyro wears

ATGATT, ya sure

By now its noon, I kiss my wonderful wife goodby, tell her the spot tracker is on and I'll be home late. Pyro tells me his wife thinks were working all day so he is good to go

Three hours in Kharma strikes painfully hard

That boulder moved about 4 feet. Pyro missed the corner at about 45 mph


Hey, I didn't notice that at first, bent rim too. AV-MECH had just put that on before he sold it to Pyro last month

Extra pieces

Brand new, three hour old helmet wounds

I only laugh because I recently got rid of my 09 KLR that kept coming apart when I rode it like I like to ride
Yup, the ol Deezer takes a liken and keeps on thumpen. Anyway, he seemed to get up alittle bit gingerly, I offered the short way home, but his pride, and my stomach really wanted one of those greasy, delicious Juntura oregon burgers. MMMMMMMMM Lets see, which way now, I think it's only about thirty miles. Looks like its that way

So, we get to Juntura, go into the Oasis and order fricken delicious burgers. No pics, I was busy. I decide to show pyro a little hot spring just a few miles away. We'll have to make a small river crossing but it should be fine....Right?

He didn't just stall out there. Total submersion, it was Effen awesome. I'd never seen it live before. Ya, what a dumbass I am. Camera in hand, video capable and not even a still photo of it under water

I helped Pyro push his bike up to the flat area so we/he could get to work. Pyro looks up from pushing and says, shit I think I know those guys. Perfect, witnesses , and they have beer

New to the ADV world, pyro is un prepared. I loan him some tools, the drunks take off and I give him a little vague tutulage on what to do.

ya, luv the field stripping

Wow, nice DRZ

Hmm, what do I do while he's working on this, there's not enough tools for the both of us Yup, take it off big guy

Here's Pyro enjoying the spring after about 45 minutes de-soggiyfing his KLR

Thats the end of the pics. The moral of the story, don't try to sneak off without telling the little lady your going to play. It could really cost you.

Casey got wet.
Explain to me again why enjoying life when I retire is more important than enjoying life now?

I suppose I could possibly be pushing the noob a little hard . It took a week and a half for the basketball sized bruise to show up after he smacked that rock .
