    Ride Memories

    Went to Flag with friends this past Sunday and experienced some of the best conditions we've seen. Snapped some pix to remember the day and slapped em' together...

    Nice homage to Elden. That you on guitar? Sounds like an original. I agree about Flag this weekend. I was there too and with the drizzles the singletrack was tacky and grippy. Best time I've had riding for awhile. Plus I hit up some new trail, Super Moto and others which also helps. We were camping up by Shultz Tank and I saw your shuttle. What a piece of work! I was on my way to the top and dropped off some other riders that hitched a ride with me where your driver was waiting. He says he got it up to 30 coming down. That has to be a hairy ride! Elden Lookout isn't as smooth as I remember it.

    Here's a few tacky shots of Sunset.

    Smooth and tight. Just how I like it!

    that song if off of the van halen for unlawful carnal knowledge album towards the end. I will never forget it as when the album was new and I had my first cd player, my grandfather wanted to hear what a cd sounded like. Being young, and having a small cd collection consisting of that album, queensryche and a couple of others that was the only song I thought he would be able to enjoy and hear the quality of the sound and the music while not complaining bout my taste in music. it worked, he loved it and its been one of my favorites ever since. You don't get to show that man much with everything he had done........

    Oh Yeah!!!

    Confirm on the Van Halen. Dag the beauty of the shuttle rig is it's fully independant suspension which smoothes that road out a bunch.Only thing faster was a cpl cats in a green Cherokee who were "drifting" it up the hill... Stu we did get a tour of a sweet trail from the No Brakes crew but still wanna compare notes with ya... It was sweet but we weren't ready to hit the whole thing yet!
