You know as we approached that scene, I couldn't help but thinking... HTF did you do that to your wing? That front end was pretty mushed. No turn to speak of, and a single bike accident. We shoulda snapped a wide angle picture with the bike and the guys wife sitting there in the ditch. Woulda made a funny christmas card!

Yup I was just as confused when I saw it, all I could think was maybe he was the sweeper that and the group that got left behind and ignored

had to do that

It was a good and fun ride, thanks for taking it easy for the newbie in the triumph.

Yes, Santa will likely make the next forest ride, in full attire.

It was hard to leave the group but man, we had an awesome time on Operation Candy Cane and made memories that dont drown out between forest runs lol

is that why u guys were way back there?

i was wondering about that.... I was up there saying..."no way am i going to fast for these guys...its just a little water".....

sorry i kept going when u guys stopped at the gas station.... i knew if something happened, there was three of yall...and i was tired of going so slow... i just wanted to get the home, eat, dry off, and get to work

They don't even know, Amanda!!!
Ha, I cant say to much...some of those fast guys can pass me standing still... However, i will say this...the kind of riding i enjoy now, is not what i enjoyed a year ago....And i hope I make as much progress in the next year as i made in the past year. ----- Shoot, a year ago...the curb monkeys with out bikes could have passed me standing still
