    Guess the only thing that broke was the the saddle, and the roof rack is the one in pieces. Luckily he has a spare of both. He stocked up after last year.

    He may seem clumsy, but I got a feeling he is just practicing for the day he decides that he wants a Turner.

    Sandia Thursday?

    Good ridin' with you guys yesterday. Two flats, four broken spokes, a bent d- hanger and a little blood. Not a bad bit of carnage for a two hour ride.

    Are you guys doing this Thursday instead of Battleship?

    Did you call and tell everyone?

    Bike works...that's all that matters. Well, everything seems to work. I'm minus my big honkin' leather seat, though. Oh well, swapping back to my WTB seat will save me a couple of pounds. I think my bike is back in the 35 lb range!

    Alright, alright, how about pics from the ride bit--!

    F'in sweet bro! I know a roller in the south foothills with your name all over it and we will hit the A line again since we are in the area. You ready for a rematch with the A line?

    Most of the pics that I took cannot be published. I will get a few out in the morning. Von has the evidence that you are looking for.

    A-line...ouch! I am still healing (read scared, very scared )

    It will be fine no dabs either. I know what you mean the drop in alone freaks me out, I thought when I dropped in I was going OTB for sure. Some how made it down with no dabs could not believe it myself. I got lucky that day Buddha you showed me the way.

    I understand on the pics I know what you mean . I wanted to see the jump again and maybe the stair stacker on Faulty you cleaned. Awesome job BTW on the stair stacker bro that section is no joke. I do not doubt it I just wanted to see the ride since I was stuck in an office all day.

    It was a great ride yesterday. I'll get around to posting up more photos in a bit. Here's the series of pictures in question. Wish I could have been in a better place to shoot photos...but there's a pretty good one in the series of Bryan shouting in victory just as he clears the last ledge.

    Good job! That was awesome.

    I think it took Brian about 9 tries, but he finally got it. BAD ASS!!

    Thanks for the great tour!
    We had a ton of fun. Sorry the rain got in the way of the last day of riding.
    Definitely would love to come back and ride more.

    I'm not religious, but you guys are really blessed! So many different trails, so close, with such great views!!!

    Von, can I get some of the pics from the trip. Especially if you got Brian LAUNCHING off the ramp. OMG!

    White Mesa was the $HIT!! Holy smokes, was that place cool. We did that with Steve yesterday and it was awesome. Got some great pictures and will post up later this weekend.

    Hey guys, this is Luis. The other Texan.

    I had a blast there with you guys. Thanks for the tours and I hope to go back soon.

    I really wanted to ride Rio En Medio, but the sky had other plans for us. Hope to see some of those great pics soon.

    Gimpy =)

    .
    Any chance you've got a server I could dump them on? I just checked and the whole set comes in around 930 MB...that's after I dumped about 200 of Bryan trying to get up the step. Downsampling the whole set would be a pain in the @$$. I could upload the whole series to Picasa and you could grab any one you like at 1600x1200 resolution.

    Glad you guys came out. Hope the NM trails didn't treat you too unkindly. A few scratches and bruises are to be expected.

    It was fun watching you give that Fuji more than it was built for. I'm still laughing about you hanging on by your fingernails over some of those rock gardens.

    REM isn't going anywhere. It'll be here next time you're out.

    if you upload them to Picasa that would be nice. =)
    oh and yeah it was a hell of a trip. I am still smiling.

    Remember... "If you are not bleeding you are not riding hard enough"
    so a few scratches and bruises ARE expected.

    My baby (my FUJI) is a tough bugger. dont underestimate it or it will surprise you. =) hope to see those pics up on picasa soon.

    Oh and your trails are ***** trails. =) JK
    they kicked my ass
    If you weren't blood would you still have love? Or in fact does the blood make you think you have to love.

    Picasa would work. (how much space do you get on Picasa?)

    I just signed up for and uploaded my panoramics to Flickr (my first use of Windows Live Photo Gallery), pretty neat.
