Fat Tire Fun

What a great first trail ride with the fatty.   Learned several things, have a lower tire pressure for better grip and it does not hurt too bad when you bail in the snow.  Rode a bit with Chris and then Ran into Steve D.  We rode around the North side. We even made some first tracks on the tree section by the houses.  What a great time.  I wanted to keep ridding but my body was saying it had enough.

Its here...

Yes it finally made it.  Took it around the hood yesterday and it was a blast.  Almost wiped out twice as I plowed through deep drifts of snow.  It just floated around,  it was sweet.  Cant wait to take it down to Tranq.  Will be down there Sunday afternoon  to have some fun...

Poderosa Ride

Heading west on Dutch Hall road in a stiff head wind. With the hills and the wind,  it really
made the legs burn. The hill I remember the most was the one by the dump.  Right when you thought you were at the top you would look up and see another hump.  On the way back it was a blast. With the wind at our back we sailed back to the starting point.  Had a great ride.

Hanging out at the Ponderosa enjoying some food and drink.

Sunday Road Ride

 Headed over to Standing Bear Lake for a nice Sunday  ride. Snow on the trail was hard   to ride thru

Saw many people out enjoying the day also.   Trail at the lake was mostly snow packed and wet.  Thought about heading down to Tranq,  but did not know the trail conditions.    Found out later that they were great.  Shoot, o well  I am sure  will get some more snow to crunch around on  :) 

On the way back home I noticed every time a car blasted by me it would kick up a cloud of salty dust that seemed to end up on my lips every time.  A great day for a ride.
