Darkness, Trail, and a SS

The sun went down, the lights came on, the ground froze, and we tore up dirt once again since what seems like 1990. It's been too long since my last dirt encounter, the last time we rode trails they had 6 inches of snow on them.

The new set of Juicy's look good, feel good, and should be a good upgrade for the new year. My old juicy's had seen some wear. On a sad note, the Fox fork didn't fit. I need 220mm of steerer, and it only had 180. Shame on me for not checking first. Marco was one cool dude about it though and took the fork back. I found another on Ebay for under 500 so I guess I'm not to bad off.

Wish I could post pics from last night but I forgot my camera. Truely awesome riding can be had in the small town of Warrensburg. There are three trail systems and if you link them up, you have one serious trail ride. We poached one of the local golf courses, and the sand was froze. Can you say sailing? Launch a frozen sand trap and see what hangtime you get. The snow was frozen too, enabling launching through parking lots. I like to get air, maybe I need a DJ bike??? Nooo...


Here's a new one. The ninja mask! Find out more at http://www.talusoutdoor.com/. You'll see me rocking one if this weather stays cold.

Sunshine, Road, and a SS


It seems like forever since getting out and riding outdoors. I've dabbled in it, but yesterday was the first good ride of the year. Really, the first good ride since early December. We headed out for a blustery and windy 3 hour ride. The first hour and a half was rough, with strong headwinds, but the second half was gravy. The Jake SS was a blast, I need to take the mud crosses off, but the 42x16 was perfect.

Also took delivery of this last night... Let the fun begin suckas!

Posting Frenzy!




I'm on a roll... Wanna see more snowboard pics? Betcha did. Here's a few. Working on the year end video finale... Figured I'd throw in a few shots.

Get Your Ass Kicked


Wanna? Wanna? Huh? I'll be buying this download in the next few days so I'll be able to tell you more about it. I saw it about a month ago, but that was during my bike hyatus, so I didn't think much about it. I did the first video training ride in years last night and actually had fun on the trainer. I have a felling this is going to kick ass. A good review is up at www.bikerumor.com. Enjoy, no go get your ass kicked!

For Your Boredom Pleasure

video

Yup, I've been a bit uninteresting as of late. Too busy to post up anything worthwhile, and still in the process of putting together the 09-10 snowboard season edit. We've got a few good shots and videos, and some lackluster ones, but all in all we're having a blast shooting footage of doing what we love in winter, snowboarding.

This is pretty lame, but it was done in a 30 minute block of time in between gettting moved in my new place in Warrensburg. I built a little kicker to shoot over this little drainage creek in one of the park. I was just stoked to still see snow when everywhere else there was none. Built the kicker and sent it. Not enough speed to do much, but just enough to clear.
