    I'd ride with all of the people in the poll...

    ...well, except stosh who we all know really doesn't ride... but, I'd hangout with him and talk architecture anyways.

    If I had to pick one, then the choice is clearly the great Skookum! His ultra hipness and positive attitude on life combined with his knowlege of the most kick-ass trails in the world makes him a no brainer in this poll.

    echo likes to ride by himself most the time. it'd be fun to ride with Brian (lots of booze included) and Heidi
    should be riding with treesaw soon though..
    i'd of course would like to ride with everyone.

    maybe except for N8 and loco they may be talking too much....

    I have to vote for skookum. Every time he posts pictures of his rides my jaw drops and the hairs on my neck raise in a fit of jealousy.

    I've rode with Skookum many times, but I'll still vote for him. He is probably the most laid back tour guide around :D When you ride with him it's not about speed or distance, but about riding and enjoying the adventure.

    Plus he sings while riding and will make you laugh so hard with his off beat humor you can't ride :thumb:

    ***sniff****sniff***** IAB….Not feelin da love…..***sniff****sniff***** :p :D

    There are a lot of monkeys, like a lot of the originals I'd like to ride with.

    So, here is that list, and yes, the XC folks would kick my a$$, but it would be fun to ride with them anyway.

    I already listed 3

    So here are a few more:

    Nizmeister
    Heidi (for sure)
    RM
    IAB & MBC
    Helltaco
    Splat
    Squeek
    Cliffster
    Stosh :stosh:
    Motionboy2
    Ohio
    Echo
    Toninator
    Deyv
    JOJO
    BeerDemon
    Spincrazy

    Certainly by no means complete. It was cool to ride with a lot of the east coast monkeys! Tought to make a list....

    Pretty much most of the Monkeys west of the Mississippi...

    aww, you know that's not true, but it's hard to follow my motto with you...

    Ride up mountains, drink down beers. (you're 16-17, yeah?)

    Yes we have ridden. You even let me take your SGS for a few runs at Wintergreen, downhilling is so much easier on a downhill bike than it is on an XC bike. :help:

    LOL - why are Babs and MBC the same person? They do exist on their own...I've ridden with him before, not with her. There are a lot of monkeys I'd like to meet and ride with, and a lot I've already met and ridden with.

    I want to ride with everyone, but since I can't here's a little whirlwind Monkey tour...

    I would want to head up and ride with the whole PNW crew. Gotta ride with Skookum and take panoramic pix and compare leg scars. And I have to see if Megan Black is as hot in person. Then I would head over to Stosh's place and see if he really rides or if we would just drink beer. Then after that it's off to Mack's place for some spelling lessons. Avoiding most of the south due to heat and humidity,I am next heading to Biggins' place for some fishing and riding. If he's feeling blue I may pick him up and bring him along with me. Then I'll make a brief stop at N8's place to plaster his bikes with Hillary Clinton and Green Party stickers... AFTER he BBQ's for me and makes some Martini's. Head west after that for a ride with Loco. We'll ride the Texas trails and then listen to some Descendents and discuss the merits of chick pants Vs. Wranglers. Heading home we'll make a swing slightly north and hit Santa Barbara. Great trails, cool peeps and some good garlic. Almost done with our whirlwind Monkey tour I'd skip home and head to San Diego for some riding and jumping in 100000 degree heat. Orvan takes good pictures too so I would feel like a star. Finally, exhausted and in need of some good beer, I would head home to Pasadena and do a final ride on Mt.Wilson with a carne asada BBQ after. Y'all are invited.

    After that I am sleeping for 3 months.

    I want to ride with Biggins, that sounds like it would be alot of fun. I will be riding with Mack, and MMCG and whoever else lives in CT. But besides those people, I would want to ride with really anyone on RM, unless they wear lycra.

    I voted for Westy, but I think I'd just as much like to ride with Loco and Stinkyboy. :thumb:

    Skooks would be cool, too.

    Shoot, I already rode with most of the list. I'd have to say Skookum and Heidi top the list for me. I need more PNW dirt on my tires.

    Holy crap! i'm a runaway favorite, that's a change.... Heidi is the runner up i guess i'll run for president and have her as my vice president. Only prob it'd only be a matter of time before i'd get assassinated, by a woman of course.... :D

    Well since this influx of mass popularity i'm gonna have to cash in. i've therefore decided to sell the rights of my name. The name Skookum Skookz Skookie Skook Skooker Skookariakah El Skookador Skooky Doo has now been sold to the Mormom Church's PepsiCo division, you'll all have to refer to me from now on as Ned. :monkey:
