LOL, haven't ridden since april of 2012 and went out with 3 other guys this morning. Did nelson to searchlight and back. Not to bad for my first time back in the seat, stayed well ahead of all 3 of them all day so I guess the speed is still there. The fitness... Yeah, yikes!!!! I'm pretty beat and sore right now. Forgot what it takes to toss that thing around under me and keep it upright. I picked a wrong hill climb too... LOL, Made it to the top JUST BARELY!!!! 2 of them crashed, 1 looped out in pretty epic fashion. I finally sent them up the hill I meant to have climbed! Good times! Need food now though! Darn it! Nothing easy to cook in the house and too beatup/lazy to leave! Where's my slave when I need one?

Actually that little dip let me check tire clearance with the new rims. Looks like I'm clear l the way around in the back. Stuffs up in there and is nowhere near rubbing.

Now to get some bump stops.....

You can do any trail you want. It just depends on how much body damage you are willing to take. You should be able to do the loop without difficulty or damage.

So, I may have just gotten myself placed on a terrorist watch list. I sent the following email to Senator Harry Reid. While I'm pretty sure it's all accurate, I'm sure someone will let me know if it's not. I know the letter will be read by some flunky and deleted, but it made me feel better to write it. Hopefully Dave's buddies dont pay me a visit, nor do I suddenly disappear because of some accident.

I just wanted to write and thank you for doing your part in implementing "Obamacare!" I received my annual benefits package through my employer and discovered that my monthly rates are increasing while my actual benefits are decreasing. I will no longer have vision nor dental insurance to cover my family of four, which includes two very young children. Thank you for causing my family additional financial hardship during these flourishing economic times! I look forward to next year, because instead of being able to afford everything my family needs on my income alone, my family will now have to watch me work additional hours of overtime to provide the most basic necessities.
As you may or may not understand, it is quite difficult to find a decent, competent healthcare provider in Nevada. I got lucky when I found my physician. He is very attentive, and has helped me to become healthier than I have been in years. Unfortunately, he is now out-of-network on my policy. Thank you once more for a job well done! I have to choose to either find another physician that doesn't understand my medical history and is a stranger to me, or pay quite a bit more in co-pays.
I'm sure that the millions of illegal immigrants and unemployed will be quite pleased receiving the health insurance that I paid for while suffering reduced benefits for my family. That's ok, though, my wife and children are still healthy, and haven't developed any chronic disorders yet. They won't be taking away the benefits of the ones who didn't work for or do anything other than to file some paperwork and wait in line to earn the help.
It has also come to my attention that you and the rest of our Senators and Representatives have exempted yourselves from the abomination that is "Obamacare." Once again, great job in selling the public a train wreck that you aren't required to participate in. I also want to make sure to tell you how welcome you are for me paying for your healthcare for you. It must be nice.
Before, If I couldn't afford the policy I had, I could just opt out of parts of it. Now that there's a legal minimum limit, penalized by large tax fees, I cannot choose to not buy something I cannot afford. I am forced to pay for a lower level of insurance that I previously held before, for increased cost, or choose to not cover my family, and pay large tax penalties. Eventual jail time would be the result of my failure to comply with the forced purchase of of a product/service. Yet again, wonderful job in making our lives more difficult and complicated than they were already.
I can certainly assure you, I will not be giving you my vote the next time I see your name on a ballot.
