er. ride! RT, CB, Sid, Raymond, and I started riding around 8am to some pretty good humidity. The temp was around 77 and the weather was good.
We rode the west end of the supershort and the the start of the short courses.That is until I came to a stop on a fire break after the gas stop with a flat front tire. It was after 10:30 so we took an early lunch with about 30 miles in. RT had to leave and get back for some work at home. CB took out as he was riding with Johny F. later in the weekend at Brock Creek. So Raymond, Sid and I went back to the flat spot to finish riding the short course. After Big Nasty Sid said that he had been on the ground enough and tired of fighting his bike. So he cut our back to the truck. Raymond and I finished the short course at 55 miles. We or should I say I, had a great time. Sure I spend a couple of minutes on the ground on the morning run, but didn't touch the ground on the afternoon run! Besides, I didn't want to taste the rocks on Buckeye or Big Nasty. My Terry Brumbley suspended KTM 400 did a great job and I had so much fun.
I surely wished that everyone else got their money's worth. It was getting sort of warm by the time we got back to the truck. Raymond said he was going to rest a bit before he headed back to south Arkansas, the worse for wear. We saw Two MIle and Richard and they were getting ready to head home. But I am sure that they didn't get the sort of ride in that we did. Not to say they didn't a good ride in, but we were hauling the mail Saturday.
I surely hope that you guys can get in some rides like this one in the near future. If you don't, shame on you. It was an epic day. Best ride I've had in awhile. Thank you Terry Brumbley. I put a hurt on a Michelin front tube, as it ripped the stem right out of the tube. Know what? Air doesn't stay in the tube then! You can go back to sleep now, but put that cool-aide down first. . . .
