Well I understand that, but at least I'm not in the negatives yet.

I guess I misunderstood you then at the Gonzo ride. So you like yours then too?

yes, it has it's quirks, but i will sort it out. i have a madstad base and brackets, but an aeroflow screen and deflectors. it is very quiet, and after a few tweaks, will be perfect.

Congrats, Ridge can be a tough one.
Oh and getting a third in the ECEA versus a first in NETRA just proves that ECEA riders are better than NETRA even in the rocks.

Went out for a nice ride yesterday afternoon. Only problem was getting stuck in mud that was at least 3 feet deep and had to move the bike a good 15 feet through it. Not too bad...only took me about 4 hours to drag the bike up a hill to get out of it. My hands are all ripped up and I'm sore as hell.

I managed to get the bike semi cleaned last night. A friend came by at the end and took a pic right before I got it out...I'll try to get a copy to post.

The bike was immersed to the fenders at the worst point. I rolled some logs into the mud to get something to stand on and they sunk into it too.

I'm getting a little too old for that crap and will have to stick to better trails for a while.

The mud I was in was way more soupy. Once I finally got the bike out, there was no tracks or signs I was even there. Everything just smoothed back over.

My mirrors are all loose and I will need to reset them and tighten them back up. I can't imagine what the air filter looks like considering the bottom of the seat was the mud line. Needless to say, I have a bit more work to do on the bike. I also think I might have to bend the brake pedal out as it appears to have gotten pushed in a bit from dragging it with the winch.

Since I already tried washing it, I'm going to let it dry now and use the air compressor to blow as much of the dried mud off as possible...then try the hose again.
