Well, no photojournalist splat today so I took some photos. We planned to meet at meet at our local riding spot, Vietnam, and carpool down to greener(browner) pastures. So BadDNA, Berkshire_rider, and I are sitting in the lot when the SilverTurtle(Dirtrider2) shows up with a freakin XC titanium hardtail instead of the 48lb Big Hit. We know we're in trouble! Here's a picture of the SilverTurtle and his new bike: Any way, we get to the trails, meet up with a couple more folks, and hit the usually stuff: BadDNA on a technical rock feature: Silver Turtle wishing he had more travel: Tyler(Skunkty14?) on the roll after the bridge: Silver Turtle looking at another rock he WOULD HAVE climbed on his Big Hit: Then we hit the road and BadDNA needed to make a pitstop: Dude, Where's my suspension: Then Mike hit a nice drop........ON A HARDTAIL: Silver Turtle, Nope, no rear suspension: Finally got a picture of the Silver Turtle riding. Of course he would have ridden 3 ft to the right of where he was if he had his Big Hit: That's it. Maybe more from Nam tomorrow.
