I love this.


I hate this.



This isn't so bad.


Just some basic riding shots.

We took a little trip. Had some nuptuals to see to, and some friends to visit.

Back home, spring is springing.


Lost part #689734.


I love this spot.




The Trumbull pic heavy portion of the post. Rode there last Thursday morning with a small group. Back again Sunday - started giving a tour for an out-of-towner, but a ride ender struck. Ended up riding anyhow, just with different riders.








A contemplative moment.

Nah, it's actually a pretty easy line. Easier than the more granite type stuff out here - it's smooth, but much grippier.

Not really. Guy from out of town, borrowing my hardtail. Nosed into a roller a bit too steeply, and not quite in the best line. He is a bit bigger and heavier than I am. Wheel folded like a cheap suit. Borrowed hardtail, when he isn't used to one, on unknown (to him) and very different trails than his normal stuff is all.

It was going on 6-7 years old, and has had its share of hits over the years.

As for the good to see the hardtail comments: I'd say my hardtail gets just as much, if not slightly more use than my 5" trail bike.
