Well what Bruster didn't tell you was that for the first time I actually finished both days and we had a blast. Good stuff this year and the mileage was actually close to 247 as Bruce's and Sid's odometers were not working or they couldn't keep mileage! Either way we got enough riding in for sure. Sid had a minor mishap on Sunday as he lost rear brakes going into a turn and crashed, seems he lost fluid from his master cylinder (read NO rear brakes here). He was ok and other than the brakes the bike got him back to camp and lunch; which we didn't know he did and thought he was out on the BT somewhere - lost! But he was eating lunch! They did a great job of trail layout and the conditions were very good. Little to no dust and there was still the blacktop roads to deal with. There was this one section just after 1st gas that ate my lunch. I just couldn't find my spot and I guess my mind was somewhere other than there. Had a couple of topple overs (thats where you are either stopped or barely moving and you fall over)! Felt like that dude from Laugh-In on the tricycle. One was from a 4stroke stall and the ohter from a mystery neutral. No damage done to me or bike. Any way after 2nd gas I decided to finish this year and rode pretty conservatively - thats not taking any chances! So we got back and I said to self, Self we are going to ride a little better and faster next time up here. Might even make arrangements for the KTM to make the trip. It has not been there and I think it would do great. Back to the ride: Bruce, Sid and myself rode the two days together and we had a good time. The dinner was just ok, but the lunch Sunday was relaly good: hot dogs, hamburgers and homemade pies( the coconut and carmel pie was very good). Lynn, Clay and Jerry had just about all they could handle on Saturday so they did not ride Sunday. I think Lynn said they rode 125 miles on Saturday. Again, I had a good time and thanks to my riding buddies. Glad we didn't have to repair any bikes this year or haul folks away in a helicopter!!! I am just sayin'. Think about going next year. Signup will be March 1st. See ya there.
