    Fun ride everyone, all the DH bikes there really made me want one! What were you guys doing at the top of Edna Mae for so long?, we watched you for 15 min's or so from the cars below and bailed for some mexican food.

    How do you keep missing these rides? Is it because they just don't want you there?

    I assume it's because I'm still stuck in the bush league.

    You guys are nuts!
    May have to invite myself sometime just to watch!!!!
    Has there been a lot of carnage over the years learning to roll those huge, steep drops?
    Not that I'll be learning (too old and chicken) - just curious.

    Well you're kind, and that's debatable, but what's perfectly clear is that it isn't anywhere near that league. That there be the real thing.

    Again, awesome riding you all.

    It's certainly not intentional. In fact, that ride just happened to be a coincidonk. Godzilla, FunkMaster, and myself where there to get a ride in the AM and meet with another guy who was going to show me some buses. Turned out that he couldn't ride with us, and then we saw Kristian and Nickle and some others start to show up for a ride of their own, so we hooked up with them. Good luck on our part. Even better luck was actually ending my bus search.

    If you really want to put this ride into perspective, it took us about 3-hours to cover around 5-miles and it involved a number of crashes, blood & gore, the occasional bike repair and I was at max BPM the whole time. Seriously.

    But what a great ride and a great day for it! It just doesn't get any better than that.

    DWF doesn't strike me as someone who does anything half-@ssed, so i suspect it would be more along these lines:



    i think an ANVIL logo would fit nicely on the side of that...

    So let me understand this. You've got this 8K bike, that's gonna be hauled around by a pile of junk that is one of the most polluting cars on the planet. A car that burns so inefficiently, you can smell the completely unburned gas vapors when one passes the paceline, albeit barely.

    Just drop in a nice tdi engine and leave those roadies in the dust. Run biodiesel, or even give it the wvo conversion and trail the scent of fries.

    You'll need a bit more clearance to hit those rollers with the bus, though.

    1st, stop polluting this beautiful thread and quit projecting your inability to properly maintain your vehicle on the rest of us.

    2nd, you have to combine at least a couple of my bikes for $8K be be anywhere near a valid number.

    3rd, MY bus (not that one, but something like it) is going to be powered by a couple hundred fuel injected Porsche ponies harnessed to a Porsche 5-spd tranny. She's going to be so clean, flowers will bloom, butterflies will emerge, amphibians will make a comeback, and rain forests will regenerate as I drive by.

    I looked into the TDI angle since we have a TDI Jetta, but converting an old Type 2 bus from aircooled to watercooled and diesel with all that brings is just too much. This won't be our daily driver, it's going to be our "Team" vehicle and lots of it will get written off as advertising.
