I had two master links and Tony also had a master link but they were for non O ring chains.
We tried our best to rig it up but we were running out of daylight and we had to get the hell out before we starting freezing. I doubled out and hike up the hill climbs with Tony… thanks dude!
As we were doubling on the fire road Tony on a turn hit an ice patch we fell and slid together about 15 feet, too funny! hahaha! I guess that was the icing on the cake!
Ferny and I went back on Monday on the rescue mission
Jungle and the others offered to help on the rescue but the bike was running we just needed to get the chain on. So thanks dudes!
Oh .. yes almost forgot when I got home on Sunday night my plate for my KTM was sitting on the table haha and I had no ktm ;-(
HT where the hell where ya? does Kap still ride?
Pics below

Jungle ready to rock!


Impossible to brake here it was icy! sucked ya to the right


I had front row seat to show! Another try at it!


Ferny still a kid playing hide n seek


More white


Jungle and Ferny


Brake time


Ferny snow roosting




trails kept sucking you to the right


Plated!
What a great story! Keep it up, Ralphy, I won't be able to ride for awhile but I get my riding fix through you boyz! Keep this thread alive... You all know you shouldn't even be able to go where you were last weekend! Let it snow and rain or it will suck up there this year. Glad you had a happy ending, it sucks when you leave your bike up on the mountain, been there done that! congratulations on the plate for the KTM

Thanks Perry
so true! January and riding the trees.
Yes we need the rain and snow let it come now that I got my bike out .. ha
That was one of my thoughts at night that a big snow storm was gonna move in and I would have to wait till summer to retrieve it
