"Knee deep to a short man" weekday riders

So we met up for a long distant ride over FS 17/18 to the
Mt. Loop Hwy and over and back on the Rat Trap Pass.
OldX has a fine ride



at Cumberland







just before Snegilson Pass



White Horse



FS 18 at the Swede Haven Rd



we were welcome in Darrington



on up to FS 23 and Rat Trap pass



some day I'll remember the names of these peaks, until then feel free to chip in











Turnsleft wanted to keep his ride spiffy



we were all stunned







funny man









yep knee deep and he's looking for sushi



this road was apparently closed



so we headed on back



over a 195 miles by the time I rode in to the station, fine bunch to ride with
and a great week day to do it

Well if you get a flat ya don't want to get dirty fixing it.

Kinda looks like a can of fix~a~flat.

I'm trying to figure out how to load from the gopro. Bad words~bad words.

Fun day riding. The creek was a bit to hi, Lorne did get his feet cooled off.

Shoulda brought the readers to the Autozone?

Nice day out. I'll have to get together and bore you with the half-day long Montesa brake lever replacement story. I'd guess the flat rate manual allocates about 12 minutes for that job.
