    Pedro's fest Pics !

    OK ! I'm back from vacation and ready to Post some Pedros Pics!!

    I took a lot so I have a lot to Post!

    Lets start with the trip out there we went out thursday Night. definatly the way to go!

    I always love this sign on the Mass Pike


    then there is always this point of interest.


    So friday Morning , get up , eat , etc , etc
    I start talking to the guy in the camp across from us , and he has this brand new Intense 5.5 , looks really nice , he then tells me its a free demo. and you can demo it free for the day ! ,

    why Abuse my Bike when I can Break some one else! ;D for free!
    So I went and got me one of them. it was full XT with Rapid rise.
    I did not like , shifting ! every time I grabbed my front break , I also down shifted the front deraiuler. it was also equiped with tubeless tires and Just at the end of the ride I got a rear flat Not my Bike ,not my Worry , I just rolled it back to the intese booth and turned it in. but over all it was a very nice Bike!
    here I am on it


    Hey the wife is taking a Picture of me as we are about to depart on the 11AM intermediate ride.

    and here isthe picture she took

    the ride started out as huge , and split into about 4 different rides. I was with the faster group , so I didn't get manny chances to take pics. but here we are taking a small break while the leaders decide where to go.


    and here we are a little farther along.


    and shortly after I got back , the Evil:bota crew showed up , so I went out for another ride with them. Unfortunalty I did not get any pics on that ride.

    But am I satisfifed with just doing 2 ride in a day ? Hell No! I Night ride time ! and instead of using my own light, Lights and Motion was demoing HID systems , woo hoo brights lights.

    we were a group of about 20

    then it sarted to rain!!!!
    and the ride leaders really did not know the course and ran us around in circles.
    we fianally brought it back , soaking wet and very muddy!
    it is raining quite hard in this pic , but it is hard to tell.


    the wife only did a small ride on friday , while I rode and she watched the kids , so on saturday , she went out and id an epic womans ride , while I hung out with the kids at the expo.

    here are the kids in the trike race.


    here the bike rags Guys doing a trials demo, we must jump fire.


    now we crush coke can next to fire.


    I thought this was an interesting picture.


    this just looked like injury written all over it.


    who needs 2 wheels


    Well we did have a couple of small rain showers , and this followed the one.


    and while we are at it , here is our camp taken from that other hill.



    me riding around on PK's chopper


    I know fining a Place to park was tough


    Now it is MUD BOG racing time!

    Since it was dry this year ( thank God)
    so They had to Make Mud ! after that Beast in the previous photo tore things up a little .
    the lanesboro FD helped too



    and I don't think we need word to descride the rest of these.








    well here are the riders back at camp evil ,


    and then Sinister put on a demo, and was ripping up.






    Now it was Try 2 for the night ride ! was a beutiful night , and we had in excess of 50 riders , it should have been split but they did not. and of course we got lost --- again

    wound up on Rt 7 and id 2 miles on the hiway to get back. but it was fun and dry !





    and finally did a ride on sunday , and this picture here was taken in the exact same spot as the 2 previous night shots!! amazing how different a little light makes it look.


    and I will have say this ting took more people down.! that root was tough.


    and that is all I have for now.
