LTS redefines the term "off road". Glad you're ok brother.

Wow, that's nuts. This must have been after I came to as I'm standing on my own. There is a HUGE rock just to my right that must've been what I whacked my melon on.

Every day I get a little better, but man this goes without saying ATGATT!!!!!!!!!

I'm the guy in gray riding gear in the picture.
LTS, I gotta tell you; when we got there you were motionless, my first though was "Oh shit this is bad"... luckly, as soon as some of the guys started to pick you up, you kind of woke up.

I think I was the 4th or 5th person there, and the first couple of guys had already pulled you out from under the bike (I assume).

At that point, you were aware enough to ask us to stand the bike up to prevent it from leaking fuel.

Once you and the bike were upright, I climbed back up on the trail and took a video of you riding the bike out of there. (It wasn't an exciting video, because you made it look easy.) I don't know how to post video, but can email it to you.

Yikes, I didn't realize it was that bad. First thing I remember was that 3 guys had to work fairly hard to get my monkey ass up- and then I promptly wobbled too much and had to sit down.

Once I gained some of my sensibilities, I was good enough, but to put me out that bad, I must have face planted directly on that rock.

And another heartfelt thanks for getting me up.

Maaan, this sucks, I missed a good one. I'll never get down to less than one bike running at a time ever again.

Congratulations to Hesaid and Shesaid for a successful event! It was right in my backyard and I couldn't even make it. Hopefully I can make it next year. Sounds like fun.

Longtallsally, get well soon. The last time I saw you was in Silverton on the pig rolling in the mud and snow and then just a couple weeks later your making headlines in my neighborhood. It would of been fun to ride with you again. All except for the superflysally part of the ride.. Lets ride!

Thanks for the vids! Got any more? Can we use these as promo material for the 2nd annual Noob Ride? We ought to be able to convince more people that they want to see this part of the Sierras. And if not this part, the parts I was in today are nice too.
