The Ride of My life This Year I Hope not
Posted October 11, 2000 - 06:00 PM
I will be back to Mammoth Ca and riding the Dick Allen Sierra Safari and hopefully this year I will finish the event and not in the ER! I'v had the flu all week and the first ride day is Friday the 13th, wonderful!!
I have definitely slowed down my riding pace during the past few months and hopefuly by using my head I will get this ride behind me so I can get on with life as its been in the back of my mind for a very long painfull time.
I would like to thank Bryan personally for establishing the forum, a personal get away for me. During some intense times while recovering last year this forum was a real treat for me and one of the few things I had to look forwared to each day. I'ts hard to find many people who truly are into this sport for the long haul and who have similar interests and understanding. But you all are here and when a rider is down this is a great place to visit.
Will be reporting on the ride next week and if I get a chance to snap a few photos will post those also.

Life is short so ride safe and have fun. Hope everyone's next ride is the best one ever.

It became even more clear to me over the weekend after meeting so many TTalkers just how much we have in common. Every time I meet someone from this forum, we all get along great and have fun riding together.
It certainly is a support group for injured riders and also for everyone that rides in general.
Only here do we all understand the reasons why we ride.
Can't wait to see your pictures (although I'm quite a bit behind on posting them) and stay healthy this time.

The Saturday ride was 78 miles and what a great ride as the last 30 were in and out of the snow, not bad snow but just enough to keep your attention. We were riding in loam and super traction stuff--this was a great riding outing. No get offs on Saturday a clean ride start to finish.
The hosted bar and dinner (part of the deal along with hoted accomodations) were also execellent Saturday evening. Nobody got seriously injured and only two mechanical breakdowns over two days and a 105 riders.
My wife accompanied me and she had a excellent time with the VISA card at the Mammoth oulet stores and also some shopping at near by June Lakes.
