Thumpertalk AZ CRF ride day photos

Recommended Posts

Ocho here with a rundown of the nights events. My wife and I decided to carpool with a buddy of mine since it's about a two hour drive for us. We took his chevy gas truck(and his new exhaust system) and towed his 34' fifth wheel. Can you say LOUD! That truck was screaming at 3200 rpm in third gear. I had a headache by the time we got there. So we show up late, pay our dues, and hit the track. There has been a lot of hype about Canyon Offroad Park lately so I was expecting a lot(I've never been there before).

Canyon delivered. Well groomed, nicely lit, with fun safe jumps. They ordered the correct weather too(this could be my lucky night).

Everyone rode till sunset. As the lights were warming up, the founding fathers handed out swag donated by Thumpertalk, Maxxis, RG3, White Brothers, Canyon Offroad Park, Works Connection and others too.(someone please list them all because they deserve it)

Mr. Beard scores some pants.

Mad Max drove all the way from Oklahoma. And then turned around to drive home. He is what we call 'Driven'.

After the first round of prizes were given out, it was time for some riding. I apologize for not having action shots but I was getting busy with my mistress.(see avatar)

I had a great time riding. It's been about 2 months since I last rode so pumped up like a balloon at a clown convention. You could've sharpened knives on my forearms. Any who it was about time for round two of the prizes and the grand prize giveaway (in radio announcer voice) SPONSORED BY THUMPERTALK.

Brian Wilson gets up to hand out the goods. Thumpertalk gave away a full set of Moose Sahara gear and some Thor ATV? boots. Size 32 blue and white and size 10 boots. Go ahead ask me how I know. That right! Yours truly walked away the big winner. I'm am stoked. I have been meaning to buy a set of this very gear because nothing is better in the summer than this stuff,

NOTHING. Sorry, no pictures. I was busy collecting my goods. Then Ben? gave Brian a plague of appreciation that everyone signed.

I thought Ben? was going to let loose a tear when he handed the plague over. He gave a heartfelt speech to the crowd. Brian was very appreciative. Did I mention that for a big boy Brian can haul the mail. He dwarfs his suzuki but he moves out.

I went home late. Slept four hours and was back at the track the next morning to try on my new gear. The weather was killer. 77 degrees when I got there and 86 degrees when I left at 11:30am. The stuff dreams are made of in AZ in July.

That was my wife trying to take pics of me on that table in front of the stands. We have a decent digital camera and the darn thing would pick up the smallest specs of dust in the air and ruin the pic. All of them look like it is snowing. Plus there is a delay from the time you press the button to the time it snaps the photo and you have to 'time' when you press the button. Anyway, we didn't get any shots worth posting.

You are right #111 ripped. I had to take a ribbing from my buddy the whole way home for not jumping the triple. He sort of tricked me into not trying it. We both agreed we shouldn't go for it. After I started taking off my gear he went out one more time. That SOB jumped it and i didn't feel like putting my gear back on. I was too tired. :thumbsup:

Thanks for sharing the pics...I wish I could have stayed longer to get more laps in (I only made it out twice) and get to know a few more TTer's and help hand out the prizes (Chris, I heard you were calling me to help since you forgot I left already :applause: )...but I had to take my wife to a party so I could get my 2nd "ride" in for the night :thumbsup: Both types of rides happen at about the same frequency, which isn't very often :applause: So to get a double "whammy" was a real treat :ride:
