I assume the riding was decent then? Widowmaker will have stories to tell?

Here's the scoop

You meet the nicest people on a Yamaha So we're toolin along, I'm leading and coming around a pinion bush and had a head on with a WR450, there's some new blue paint on the front disk guard, it reminds me of the little swastikas the fighter pilots would paint on their planes, 1 yammie down

We were both ok, Later on I met up with a big pinion branch was sticking out in the trail, pinion is the NM ironwood, it doesn't give. I wasn't going to be able to miss it so I tried to pull my arm out of the way, it got the hand, bent my thumb backwards pretty good, ouch! Tough to ride back to the truck when the throttle hand is ooc. Looks like I'm out for a couple weeks

It was a great ride, a little chilly in the morn but it warmed up to be great weather. I think Thump and VZzeroknots had a good ride, I know we did.

Ciudado Chris!

Some of my usual Sat crew ride WRs out there. I'll bet you "met" one of them.
Was it a rider or some squid kid? That always worries me out there.

We are heading to The Range in Bernalillo at 8:30 if any of you guys want to go. We are going to ride SY trials today though.

Every ride is a good ride! Thanks again for showing us around, hit us up when the mountains thaw out and I'll show you around Rico. Might want to gear down a bit though.

More riding happened today. Ridiculously fast through whoops, ridges and cactus. Few Webe pro riders decided they were going to show the Colorado boys how it's done. Thanks Tony..... I guess.

I may be asleep by 7.

Right now nature is "cool" and white. You guys got your ride in just in time.
