    Larry thank you for a very pleasant day. Great way to bring in the new year.

    I don't have Lurch's talent so here's just a few pics from my dirty lensed iPhone

    Do I get credit for wrecking a sidewall, if the tire was already mostly wore out? I cut my pinky finger on my console, too :frown:

    I was going 25-30 mph east up one of the major arroyo when suddenly I found myself approaching some mogles. I couldn't slow down fast enough. After getting some articulated modulation (of course, in slow motion), I was launched into the air and came down hard on the front bumper bottom. It popped off the bumper cover corner on the driver side. I was able to push it back on but it does look like the bumper space on the driver side has no space whereas the gap on the passenger side has a bigger gap.

    Flickr wouldn't accept the 512MB file... the error message said that while it was technically inspiring, it was too boring

    I'm actually going to remember this. Next time I am in a group and we are running behind, I am going to pull this stunt to see how agitated I can get some folks.

    Flickr was a no go but YouTube accepted it. As always, video doesn’t do justice to how steep this is. Truly an amazing machine you have there Larry!

    @LBBLC100 that is such a pretty rig!

    I wish that clown in the TLCA shirt would just shut up and change the dang tire...

    Yes - 15 lbs. I know, the tires don't look like it.
