Hey all -
Was going to post in the OT board but, well, . . . changed my mind! How the hell are y'all?!?!? :) Long time no hear from!!! DR wouldn't let me login under my old hairscarambled acct so had to make a new one. What - no avatars allowed?
Lotsa things have been going on with me for the past 2 years - not many of them of the warm fuzzy type. :( Anyway - How's everyone doing? Been checking into DR now and again, but my most recent activity was way back with KK's jersey thread. Lotsa good pics - thanks to MJ and all! Hope KK is doing OK.
What's up with evryone? Hey Court - still working at the KTM dealer? Is there a Sully's challenge for 2013? Speaking of the SC - how's Paul B14? Started to snow in Montana yet? Is Dave still around or did he get sandered by another bush (haha)? Saw patillac's name re-surface a while back - think he's a college boy now. Maple is still here, but no Chud? (Maple's mom will be disappointed.) Where's pop and dave hamblin? I saw a post from my favorite dirt rider (Alex yz 250 fever) not too long ago and I see ML is alive and well. How's Mike doing with Devoil Racing? How's Dag? Didn't see Brad's name - maybe he's already snowed in up there in Canada. How's things down under in NZ for NZRider and Kiwi? Nick still have the 'Zook? There are a few new names like coyotekiller and Felixsaladbar that I don't recognize but we always need new blood!
Me? Well, Life threw a couple of curve balls in the past couple of years but I think I'm finally rounding third and headed for home (Thank God!) I still have the little KX 100 and ride in my backyard track but don't get to ride as much as I'd like - at least I'm healthy and I'm thankful for that!!!!!!
Anyway - I wish you all a very, very, very, happy and healthy Thanksgiving and look forward to stopping by now and again in the coming months. Lemme know what's been going on!
Hi Hair, it's good to hear from you. As it happens, just the other day I wondered to myself what you're up to these days. Glad to hear things are picking up for you again.
Yep, still Zooking it up, but I have an RMZ now. Loving that. Best bike I've ever owned. Still doing plenty of riding and racing too.
Like Mike said, it's a pity this place isn't as busy as it was, it was a hell of a lot of fun back in the day...
Chud is still alive and kicking and leaves the odd comment every couple of months or so.
If I can remember how, I'll try and put up a pic later...
Haha - glad to see things haven't changed much with you guys.
Good to hear from you Kiwi - glad to hear you're getting in a lot of seat time . It's seems weird that it's summertime in November. Hey Coyote - nice to meet you. I like the 2t's myself as well - 2 KTM XCW's and now a little KX 100.
I participate in 2 or 3 other forums but this one seems to have the strongest and most loyal group of all. Facebook def changed the way we communicate tho. A few months ago I walked away from my $65k a year job that also paid full benefits, so now I'm unemployed and uninsured but I think (hope) everything will work out in the end. I actually thought of a few of you - Court, Dag and ML's switch from mechanic extraodinaire to computer geek - and you all seemed to make it to the other side ok. Thanks to all for taking the time to say' hi - it's all a part of getting back to normal for me.
Hey pop - you squeezed in there while I was typing away. Glad you're still here. Skyler still riding (and flirting with the ladies haha)?
ps - sorry Paul - I don't know why I even go on the computer at night when I'm tired. I thought your signature said 500 EXC, not 300 EXC.
Sorry Maple, it was a Reader's Ride article and I'm pretty sure those aren't posted on the website. I think Nick was referring to a Weekend Warrior article I wrote a few years back. No pics of me, just words.
It's weird - I don't remember submitting both articles - just the one about the Dirt Wise school (which doesn't have my name on it), but they have one I wrote about vacationing at Highland Park Resort that I don't remember submitting (that does have my name on it).
Since we're putting up vids, I'll see if I can too...
I hope this works.
Bugger. I was trying to embed that. **sigh** Pooter newbs, who needs em? LOL
Basically a trail system over some private land that is to tough to farm. The boys I go out there with know all the nasty tracks which are the ones that I prefer. At 3.12 I knew I could look out over the coast so I hopped up there. The tight stuff at the end is really good fun, there's quite a lot of that out there.
As it happens, we're going out there next weekend for another play. The boys were talking about stashing some gas at the coast and riding out there and back. We have permission to cross the properties involved so it should be good.
I don't have the patience to edit vids, my mate loves it though and sticks them up on his FB. I just take the film for him.
