Nope, Im the guy with the Husky 449, the Tiger XC has been on my list and I finally made it happen. In fact we are picking two brand new ones up tomorrow (friend and I), too bad Wilson's couldn't get their head out of their ass, we bought them in Modesto from Cycle Specialties, no BS'ing price, just an honest and fast deal. Sure made the sales guy happy!

Fresno sucks for new bikes, first I had to goto Prescott Az for the Husky, now Modesto for the Tiger and they had to ship one in for us (Wilson's couldn't be bothered ), whats up with the dealers here? They selling too many bikes to be bothered? Maybe they have to be bright Orange to get them to take our money.
Really feel like Im pre-judged before walking into a local shop.

Ohh Well, Chip, your turn! I need a local riding buddy and some lessons.

Be careful this weekend!

Verplank Ridge part III AGAIN!!!!!!!!!continued from post#167

SHIT! I can't believe what just happened! I was working on Verplank part III and when I went to post it after a couple hours work, it fucking disapeared. here we go again.....this time I'll hit save so I don't lose it all again.

Did I mention Verplank is a brushy bitch?

this stuff reaches out and grabs you!

some clearing is needed here.

We left off from here, the belly of the beast!

As you can see here, it was getting dark when the bike was almost back on the trail...

Check out those nice hiking boots.

Here's where it all happened, the Verplank trail 27E03, I made it to the Verplank saddle area, this is where I spent the night.

More later.....

I think maybe they do sell a dirtload of bikes and so maybe they arent hurting for customers. They got me a great deal on my 530 - I owe them my thanks for that but it is orange. :)
