Well sometimes you don't know it's gonna be "epic" 'til after it's over and this one was no exception. Started out early Sat with 8 bikes from near and far. KTMMike put together a great 200mi ride with a morning full of twisties, an afternoon full of dirt and a suprize in the middle.



The suprize was we went by this seemingly ordinary house in the country where this mega-rig was parked and got to gander at it's contents. The last pic will reveal who's house and garage it was.











You might have seen this R1 on a CycleWorld cover once







Back to riding or at least pictures of all our breaks



A little "get-off" spot by one of our group in a deceiving corner





Project-X says bye in HotSprings



The mandatory BBQ stop in Hartford Tn.



And of all those exotics bikes of ours and what did the rafting babes stop to look at but the flat black rice burner with slicks :headshake





A break after the "secret dragon" ...don't ask



Of course my trademark self-portrait...sorry if I crack anyones monitor



And just before the last stretch with some toasted homies and something about a "shocker"...whatever that means :rolleyes:





Back home again to clean up and get ready for the next one

nice pics. Very jealous. Who had the getoff?
Brett (doin the shocker with the dirty face) went into a decreasing

radius right hander, saw the gravel on the apex, stood it up and aimed

at the the big grass down hill. Lowsided it instead of trying to ride it out.

There was ~40 feet of down hill grass, then a barbed wire fence and a

drop off. A good idea probably. A broken mirror and a little dirt was all. :bike:

Yeah Kelly, there was gravel washdown everywhere we went except the secret dragon because of it's lack of driveways and side roads, made for the best part of the day.

Had a great time riding...MAXIMUM SENSORY OVERLOAD...for a flatlander who hasn't ridden a curve in 10 mos.:eek:

My butt is beat the hell off me in 40 miles, good thing I bailed when did. Next day finished the ride, day after did the best parts. Overall my trip was about 60 % off pavement. Saw golden eagles, a snake swim against the curent and a hummingbird.Some pics back at camp.

Sweet!
The color spectrum is not complete without a yellow bike. I know I'm slackin'. That's gonna be my excuse next time I get pressed into working instead of riding;

"I can't work. I hafta go riding cause I have the yellow bike."
