THANKS to Luc & family for hosting the ride day at their home!
Mother Nature did not cooperate, but Luc is stubborn and refused to cancel. Plenty of folks showed up to brave the rain and mud....and boy was there mud!
I was excited to come for a few reasons, but a big one was that Quinton overhauled my old 99 KTM 300 2-stroke! The list of items he fixed, replaced, or otherwise improved is a mile long! 2 weeks prior I dropped off a bike that wouldn't run and was in such sad condition one would have been tempted to junk it! I hardly recognized it when I saw it in the back of Quinton's truck. I hesitated to ride because the conditions were miserable, but Quinton said I had to ride it. IT'S ALIVE!!! I left a few ruts in Luc's pasture, however, I left 0.73% as many ruts as Luc created!
Unfortunately, Rachel started feeling poorly so we headed home early. (She's fine now, btw.)
Thanks to savage & safiri for the great photos, too!
My brother, KC, brought his son, Zachary, for his first ride. Z-man was amazing! I think he's dreamed of his first day riding a real motorcycle his whole life.
Despite really crappy weather for dirt riding, seems all had a great time!
