    Finally cleaned it!

    Yeah I know, this is basically an "I love me" thread but it was pretty cool to finally get through this corner on Alta. I was concerned about ripping the der. or disc off but after one super slow attempt I could see that wasn't an issue. It's pretty hairy and making the left turn is a bit interesting but it can be done. Of course it helped to have some encouragement, thanks M3!

    Nice! We love you too Kenny. That's a nasty one for sure. Thus far I've only seen Monkeybutt clean it.

    SWITCHBACK OF DEEEAATTHHHH!!!!

    Whoa dood!

    BTW, I think I saw ya last week pedaling up Priest thru Guadulepe on your way to work. You had your Battle Dress Uniform helmet on, so you kinda blended in with the rest of the surroundings. That camo stuff really does work.

    Nice!

    if you look closely in this photo, you see Kenny calmly riding along up ahead after he calmly made this part Alex almost died on...it was like Reality TV right in front of me.

    Took a few rides to decide it was possible. Of course I managed to flub the next ugly turn (which I've cleaned every time before) so it kinda evened out. U2metoo; that sounds like me. Been commuting in at least once a week. Lots of fun actually. Chollaball; I almost forgot about that one! That was also a first time clean for me. When Alex started slipping I was already starting to reach for the cell phone. Not a good spot to wash out on

    Certain death? That's more than enough reason to try it As for the socks, I just think they make me look pretty...
