Now that things are up and running and the weather is finally warming up, I'll put pictures of my bike in front of things in here.

This weekend was finally sunny and mostly dry, so I went for a Saturday ride. This is the only picture I have, as I couldn't bring myself to get off the bike except to take a leak.

I haven't been through Rist Canyon. I tried a few years ago but gave up because of the gravel. How was it?

It has potential to be great, but I started hitting sand and slush at about 5 miles up. Definitely a summer road.

Great Picture!! I need to get things up and running in my street department of the garage, Most of my time, money, frustrations, and effort have been on the dirt side of things. It would be good to get back out on the road.
I noticed now when I ride on the street, I have much less of a desire to go fast, I attribute that to the dirt-bikes. But I think it's a good thing.

Haha same here. Once I get going I hate to stop and take the picture even if it would look great

I got off work with plenty of daylight, 60 degrees, and the lady took the dog for a run. Rather than sit on the porch and drink beer, I took a little ride up to the lake and then up Poudre Canyon a little ways and then drank beer on the porch.

I see that you are allowed to fish there as long as you can throw a line further than 100 feet. ;)

Hahaha! Good one, Arne! Well done!
Best ride ever taken? The last one. I live for the next.
