    Are trails dry already there? Or will there be snowmelt? How long a ride are you planning? Looking to head out of the Williamsport area on Saturday for a ride.
    Thanks,

    Chumbuddy, I don't anticipate the trails to be too bad. They still had maybe a 1/2 to an inch of snow on the trails, but with the warm temps they should melt off and Moon Lake drains really well. Hope to see you there on Saturday, it will be a great time!!!

    Have no fear the mOOn drains really well and they won't look like this!

    Good idea to put the fenders on though, at least a front one, there's mud in your eye!

    I just noticed I'm over 2 thousand posts!!!
    Ya for me....... LOL

    It is a sad story, so better grab some Kleenex!

    About 6 months before that pic was taken. Our friend, Mr. Snowman was up in the Arctic blasting out all kinds of sick tricks with his snowboard on the halfpipe. Then it happened, his confidence lever sky-rocketed and he overjumped the 'pipe by a country mile. The resulting crash has eye-witness grimacing as if they really felt the pain. After a short stay in the hospital he had to have his arms and legs amputated. The only donor was...you guessed it...a Vampire Bat! That is the reasone his arms and legs cast no shadows!

    Thanks man, I tried and did things that I definately wouldn't have done if I was by myself, it was a good feeling for sure.

    Buddy is a very cool dog, he went ripping by me on a uphill roosting me with snow, I yelled , hey thats no fair you have 4 wheel drive!

    Good job!

    Today at the moOn everyone had a Great ride!

    Starting out with Loren & Jake, Joan, Shoe & Buddy, Big Daddy, Rog, Chriffer, Bill and our newest guy KneeChuck, later to be joined by Biker Dave and his 2 fellow riders. Bryan joined in later and we saw Alex, Janine and Bob with their to doggies.

    Chriffer showed off his custom designed and fabed Rich Adams 29er with its a first ride at the mOOn. What a beauty!

    Shoe maned the cooking and the fire, as we did a ride to return for eats with a bit of chatting, followed by another ride heading out for a few hours, we once again returned to finish off the food.

    I took over 50 pics!!!!! At one point in the ride as riders came to the end of T-Rex2 it was our very own Popa "RAT" see photo crew filming just like a celeb sighting... LOL Great pics and vids guys! That one pic of Buddy, says: Please photoshop me. I can see that being used in out future threads. Buddy will demand higly paid compensation... LOL

    Awesome riding, awesome friends, awesome food, awesome weather, awesome time!


    That sums it up, enjoy the pics:

    I'm glad you guy's liked them, the video on my camera froze up the second part of the ride, I missed a lot of very cool footage.

    Buddy has to be one of the coolest dog's I ever met, he roosts you as he passes you by, then he catches a smell in the woods and he checks that out as you pass him by, then a minute later he fly's by you again letting you know he's the king of the trail.

    I have been talking about the ride since Saturday, I had a great time, and everyone was so cool about me joining the group for the ride, you can count on me being back, you may even get tired of seeing me!

    I'll even sneek in a pic of my little I mean big guy OZZY.

    Ozzy's like a ported 125 also, he goes from 0-100 in less than 3 seconds, he doesn't know how to pace himself, so he goes flat out till he drops.
    I couldn't trust him in the woods off a leash, he'll chase every chipmunk, squirl, rabbit, and anything else that moves, he even chases birds!

    It's a very rare acustical track that I think they laid down practicing the song before the final recording, I could be wrong on the facts, but I never heard it before downloading it.
