Remember when I used to talk about actually riding my bike? Well, the riding has been spotty as "situations" arise. It seems it is full on now as I hope not to completely embarrass myself at the Arrowhead 135. The Gary Risher Rig and I took the monster wheels for some snow riding.

Heading out for a 4 hour tour this weekend. Yes, I use the clock on the seatpost as a watch. Other than that my "zones" I stayed in could be accurately described as J.F.R.

Mayowood, Mayowood always up to no good. A beaten path made things easier, but lowering the tire pressure did the trick. Took a lap on the recently held microcross course. Was able to ride it without dismounting once. I must be amazing.

Woke up too flipping early so I could be out the door at 4:30am yesterday and be back by 7am. Recent snowfall of 2-3 inches made things more fun. The local road crews heard about my ride and brought out a plow for me to motorpace.

A picture is worth a thousand words, but looks like I only wrote fourteen.

I am not sure if I will be in optimum shape for Arrowhead, but things are looking positive. This has to be the best shape I have ever been in for the time of year that I normally am making belly jelly.

I am hoping to finally get some gears on this thing tonight as I am bogged down in anything harder than smooth flat pavement. Good training though, eh?

Christmas is almost here, get some work done before your day off, o.k.?

Nice pics. Are we still on for the 24th? 0500? I need to be home by noon.

I rode for 1 1/2 hours this am. I have the pugs loaded with bags.

Yeah, I am set for the O.D.B. ride #1.

I'll tell you tomorrow. As long as I don't know what DBD ride means, then ODB ride will remain mysterious to those who don't attend. A finger of wiseguy to you.

Bags on a Pugs, and Bags on the ends of your bars. Are you two going Christmas shopping tomorrow? :) JP

I'm Santa. I'll be stopping by your house with a lump of coal about 0600. While I'm there I grab some breakfast.

I'll have coffee on, but looking out my window now, you may have to ride the Dodge :). I'll probably be the guy on the blue New Holland.

I want to know why Charlie took a picture of his butt? Most guys hold the camera up and take the picture of their face. Why, Charlie, why?
