    I should be in.

    You might want to meet up at Scorpion Gulch on the weekends though, the Scouts tend to have stuff going on during the weekends and get a little grumpy about our extra vehicles around there.

    You should break that bad boy up in Flag!!!! I got a small crew brewing to head up there. Let me know if you or anyone else on here wants roll. I am trying to get a good size crew. We got possibly 5 guys right now.

    Hey AirMiller, you should roll out to Flag also.

    We got two pickups and more the merrier for rotation of drivers!!!

    I'd say mine has been solid, but if I do, it will probably snap in half on my next ride...

    Everything is AOK from yesterday. Maybe it doesn't break every ride, but I do abuse the hell out of it. Once again Sixty and Cactus for hooking me up time and time again.

    My bike has been very intimate with Clappy, now I feel sorry for Durtgirl because she exposed her new bike to the Clap possibly. Doesn't Posh's rear D have full blown H.I.V.?

    I guess a better question would have been "Got room for two girls?" Lynnette will be on the other DHR. And maybe if we're lucky, I can talk SuLing into joining the party on her tiny KHS.

    So I am down for some Holbert on Saturday, anybody else.

    That is if we feel like dodging hikers... so maybe we should just stick to north side trails like Holberto and Geronimo.

    I love Holbert on my FS 29rs and I can't wait to try it tomorrow on my DHR!!!

    So my parents and sister are all freaked out about my new DH bike and are equating it to my abandoned motorcycle habit... I'm sure to DIE!!! But I am now realizing that when on the DH bike I'm riding all the same trails that I rode on my 29ers, but now I am on a bike more suited for the terrain, am covered in more armor, and am wearing a FF helmet! Yup, they should be happy.

    We should make mad max style plowes on the front of our DH bikes to get those tour groups out of the way.

    stop kidding yourself. we all now you love the giant black fist. How gratifying would it be to go mocking down morman towards a group of hikers with that giant joust and yelling waffles as your war cry.

    We should have a trailer, so with that and a pickup I think we can probably get everyone in 1 truck.

    It depends on who you are mocking Hikers, weight weenies, gangsters, or the rangers are all fair game for playing mocking bird.

    Yeah no kidding. those were some pissed off red necks. I have never seen people hunting in the middle of the road before. A joust would have been mighty useful.

    awesome . anyone of us could hunt better than they were. Did you see the pick-up with the dude in the back with a bow an arrow? I wanted to tell them to go be republican some where else. It was some of the funniest gomers I have ever seen.

    I'll be in later in the mornin' with or without little latedrop. I need to knock all that wyoming mud off of my bike some how. I think a holberto run will do just fine...

    I'm gonna try to make it in the AM if I can get my brakes to be unbroke. Hopefully a good bleeding is all it'll take. They seem to need monthly bleeding for some reason, no pun intended! Argh!
    It's only skin, it'll grow back!!

    Save the drama for your mama!!!

    Well, I'm up and dressed and my gear is nicely arranged...but I'm going back to bed.

    Was sick for a climb up Natty yesterday and felt really weak. Figured a shuttle might not be too bad this morning, but I can't turn off the faucet that is my nose...and the thought of this constant effluvia inside my full face helmet is a tad disgusting.
    Have fun.

    After trading off a few riders, we still had 10 for run #3. My new bike absolutely rocked Holbert!! A few went up for run #4 but I called it quits and headed to Las Taquitos for a breakfast burrito. It was a good morning

    nice pics DG! On my way home I stopped to get gas and took a peek at my backside. Well, a quick trip to the ER and 30 stitches later, I'm at home.
    No riding for me for a couple weeks

    Yowza!!!! so the hip was just the tip of the damage? Were you too shy to drop your shorts and have us take a look? No wonder you were in pain. I'm sorry... Guess I won't be seeing you at NRA tomorrow. Heal up!

    DG, Never shy to show my arse! Pretty sure the rotor did it. It was sliced clean and deep. I got 15 internal and another 15 on top of that. Got before and after pic's on the camera phone. I'll try to get them up tonight. Time for a beer.

    I hear the CPSC is talking about outlawing disk brakes on bikes. We will all have to have canti's retrofitted to our DH rigs.

    yep, sliced right through my TLD's. Funny thing is, I didn't notice all the blood running down the back of my leg, or all the blood soaked into my car seat! I was thinking before I left, maybe I should do one more run.

    Wow, thats pretty gnarly. I gotta check the footage and see if I got that wreck on cam, but I am pretty sure thats right where I hit my favorite rock on Geronimo.

    Guess you don't need to figure out how to get the lady to let you go to Sunrise next weekend anymore

    Heal up quick

    Ewwww...Nice gash! Sorry to hear about the slice n' dice, Tony. You looked like you'd been whacked pretty soundly after that crash. At least there were no broken bones or internal injuries besides your flesh wound. I'm sure you're pretty sore this morning though...and you'll get some nice pretty colors starting to appear on your body.

    Nice meeting you all finally! Had a great time! Oh and thanks to the shuttle drivers!

    T...that's gnarly. Like someone took a ginsu knife to your ass. Hopefully you got some good drogas. That gave me the willy's as much as seeing steveo's hand fileted open. Hopefully you can make the last weekend up at sunrise. Maybe we can actually ride together

    I only a few hours to ride Saturday morning. I am going to actually do this thing they call peddling (earning your turns?). I plan to start from pima lot @ 6 ride mormon/nat to top saddle or parking lot (depending on time) then back down nat. If anyone cares to join me i will be on my way up fire road at 6. Sunday I will hopefully be getting a few runs in on the short bus.
