RAY'S INDOOR MTB PARK.....CLEVELAND, OH
A small group of local mofo's did a "quick turn and burn" to Cleveland this weekend.
We rode for about 5 hours Saturday and 5 hours Sunday.
They have a nice pump track too
This place is really cool...Well worth the trip.
More photos to come.
I'll be coming back.
It's too bad Meg didn't have any fun.....jk...lol..(what ever the hell that means).

I FOUND INTELLIGENT LIFE ON MARS......REALLY....I DID...YOU'RE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE MY WORD FOR IT.
My team won the scavenger race......
We won this......
Three martians and one unidentified alien who smelled like really strong coffee.
BIG THANKS to the MARS team for letting me hang out with them at their team party and scavenger race. It was truly a blast.

HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY DIRECTION.............
Upside down...psychotic reaction.....
Saturday was a pretty cool day.
11 of us rode the Tosa trails in absolute perfect conditions. Kyle, Rick Walls, Danny and Jeff Schneider, DaSug, Flat, Dave Dahlman, Meg, Mark Burkholtz, Glen ?, and myself. Since Glen and Mark found out about the ride from reading this lame excuse for a blog, I guess I should be a bit more responsible about updating it. 2.5hours in which DaSug lived up to his now seldom used nickname(crash) on a number of occasions. Not that he crashes any less...he just rides alot less lately. Here's a real shocker for ya'.....Flat calls and says he running a little late with (you guessed it)....a flat. It must have been his last tube because he then handed off the flatting duties to Danny. Danny can change 2 flats faster than I can change 1...and he did, so that was cool. After riding, we headed over to the new Alterra on Nort' ave. for post ride snacks and silly talk.....gooooood coffee...(but their MTB racing team is another story). Nyuk.
Later I headed down to the Rave to catch The Cult with Flat and some of his boys....Interesting cast of characters to say the least....especially Dave. If you ever send your Buick into a ditch near Hancock, Mi... you're in for a real treat. The Rave has never been one of my favorite places to see a show, but they seem to be cleaning the "dump" up a bit. If high-energy, load-ass, rock and roll is your thing.....you would have enjoyed it.....I did. Pretty accurate review here.
It's safe to say..their amps go to 11.
And yes...I know I said Hancock.

It was only 4 posts ago that I busted my Rig and I already have the replacement Ferrous. Either I need to update this blog more often or the Fisher folks work pretty quick. About 10 days from the time I took it in to the shop. Same color as my Poprad. It will probably be a while before I get it together though. This baby is undergoing and interesting overhaul and I robbed parts from the Rig to get the Ruffian put together.
I plan to ride the Tosa trails this Saturday morning at 9:30am from La Casa de Bubba. If you are reading this.....you are invited.
Let me know if you need the 10-20. This guy knows truckin' talk.

Jerry's old ride is going to suit me just fine. It may not go real fast anymore, but it still looks good.
I think I'll stick to steel bikes for a while.......they seem to hold up better for me. This is also the first steel fork I've had on a 29er. It feels better than a 26in steel fork.

CAN YOU SEE MY CRACK...............PART 3.........
The Milwaukee river trails have a way of wreckin' shit......usually me, but this time it was my bike. I didn't even notice it until tonight when I went for a quick ride with Coooop under the cover of darkness. This is the third Rig frame that I've cracked in the exact same place. I had intentions of selling this bike, but after spending lots of time on it the last few months, had it set up and fitting real nice and I started to think I would hang on to it.
Well....so much for that idea.
I think it might be time for the Fisher folks to put me on something that is going to stay in one piece. I know of a few folks that have been able to warranty busted Rigs with these....We'll see...

I HAVE A SON..........................
Back in her freshman year, Meg and a handfull of her friends from school decided to grow their hair to donate to Locks of Love.
Fast forward to their junior year and today was the day to "girl up" so to speak and "git-r-done".
I think these girls deserve some props...I mean heck, I don't ever remember doing anything nice for anyone when I was in high school. I was just a smart-ass, snot-nosed punk.
