Oh and a little local MX action on one of the vintage bikes this year ... I literally beat the hell out of this poor little thing...and have a fun time doing it










Looking bike I hardly rode at all this year. .But had a blast and every time I rode with the guys from Hell on Wheels or went out a mixed it up with the hooligans and the guys at Iron and Resin I went home with a smile on my face, some real " Run What Ya Brung" shit and everybody had a good time

new years resolution is to get out and ride more next year

Camped out with the San Diego crew on Mount Laguna in October



Plus, rode all the regular stuff.

Don't get me wrong...I love the rides I have done this year for the ride itself, but even more, I appreciate the new friends I have made through riding and the old friends who keep creating memories for the days in the rocking chair on the front porch.

This is from a ride we did from Tucson to the Grand Canyon and back 90% dirt. Four of the guys shipped their bikes from upstate NY to Tucson to make this trip happen. (where there is a will...there is a way).
