    It was clean. If he was selling next spring, I would have thought long and hard about getting it.

    The marked trails are just a suggestion. Perry is a free ride area where you can go where you want. That's a double edged sword though. There are plenty of trails that criss cross or dead end. If you haven't been there before, its easy to get lost.

    I think there was more to it than just that. The families had business dealings together as well. That building with 7 figures of pot plants on the victims property probably had something to do with it too

    The 4 people arrested were a father, mother, and 2 sons not related to the victims, but the youngest son was the father of the 5 day old baby that was spared during the murders.

    Never trust a scorer, especially the old guys with grey hair and bifocals. They get their jollies by f***ing over riders like that.

    KTM reveals their new 790 Adventure bike tomorrow at EICMA... PS I haven't seen an announcement, but I bet Yamaha reveals their new mid size Tenere there too

    So I finally got to experience some WV riding. We did a 2 day club ride. Day 1 was southwest of Charleston at a private area called Brier Creek. It was an awesome trail. They have about 55 miles winding through about 10K acres. Lots of elevation, but nothing too extreme. We had 15 total riders in the group. We covered about 35 miles in 6 hours. There were a few hills that challenged the lower skilled guys, so ample breaks were taken to give them a chance to recover. Day 2 was supposed to be Campbell's Creek, but the remaining guys (5 better riders) chose to go back to Brier Creek. With the smaller group, we maintained a much quicker pace. We covered 43 miles in just over 4 hours. The soil down there is great. The decomposed sand stone and moderate amounts of exposed rock were awesome to ride on. Traction was great and the fact it rained Friday night didn't hurt traction at all. I would love to ride that property every day! I did leave a souvenir down there. Towards the end of day 2, I was feeling racey and blew a left turn at a quick pace and slammed the bike into a tree pretty hard and sheared my rear brake pedal off just in front of the foot peg. I was lucky not to rip the footpeg off. Our trail guide was a 68 year old man with at least 60 years of riding experience. He is exactly what I hope to be at 68. He was very skilled, watching him stand on the pegs and rail all day long was inspiring!

    That sucks. While e-bikes have a ways to go to get the endurance us enduro and DS guys need, I want them to be successful. The people I know who have ridden the Alta say they're real fun and are awesome in single track.

    I'm out. Brother in law is coming up from Tennessee and we're going to the OSU game.

    Possibly. Last I heard is that the mining company put the project on hold. This time last year, the timeframe was for it to already be closed and stripping started by now.

    Muddobbers was excellent. Rode OK, but once again a slow start hurt me. I finished 13th out of 19 in 40+A with 150 minutes and 14 seconds of race time. 8th place was 145 minutes and 48 seconds. 5 minutes isn't a huge amount, especially when you consider the shortest section was 6 miles. I blew the left fork seal early on and it got some oil on the rotor and pads. Not enough to lose the breaks all the way, but enough to need a little extra pressure to get it slowed down. Then later in the day the fork emptied out, I got the rotor and pads hot enough to burn off the oil and they worked good for the last 2 tests. I've got a call in to Corey at Protune, hopefully I can get them dropped off this week and get a re-valve while he's in there freshening it up.

    There were 5 women in total, Becca in 250A, then the 3 in the Woman's class. Liz who won the class is part of the the family that runs Motohio the Ducati/Triumph/BMW dealership in east Columbus. She grew up around dirtbikes and was an instructor for BMW's Woman's Adventure class for a few years before moving home to work at the dealership. 2nd place was Rae who is in my club. She just started riding dirtbikes 2 years ago, but is a beast on a mountain bike. I've been riding with her husband since the early days of ZTR. 3rd was Mallory, who is Joe Geyer's girlfriend. She was the ACES scorer last year, but decided she was tired of watching Joe have all the fun. I won't comment on the 5th lol

    Results are up, I was 40th O/A with a 67:02, Kenny was 43rd O/A with a 67:38. Becca Sheets was 14th O/A with a 61:53. We got beat by a girl! LOL Seriously though, these top women really have stepped up their game. 11 years ago, I beat the top women who were going to the ISDE at the 2 Day Qualifier and I'm faster now than I was then. Oh yeah, she's a cutie! If I were younger, richer, better looking guy...

    Yeah, I saw that. Probably an ADV bike the way the Suzuki V-Strom is an ADV bike. It will have an all new liquid cooled 60* V-twin, so might not weigh 800 pounds lol
