    You guys look like you are in a Gang... :whistling: Are you MTB Gang Members?
    Hey wait! One of those guys looks familiar! Awwww Man! Are you hanging out with @MrGreedom ?!?!?!?
    I promise NOT to mark off too many points for that association. ;)


    Those black and blue steeds fit right in with our black and blue crew.
    Welcome to imtbtrails Brothah! Let's ride!

    Howdy/welcome.. I got back into riding after a long hiatus back in 2012 and haven’t looked back (except for the whole 2 young kids thing that’s have slowed me down the past year). Sounds like you’re easing right back into it nicely... oh, and nice bike!

    Well I'll tell you what. @MrGreedom is AWESOME! Especially if he got you on a bike and hooked you up with the imtbtrails family. Tells me you are in good hands.
    It's a moral imperative that you come visit me...
    ...and I will give you the red carpet treatment of the Golden Eagle trail. You will go through withdrawals for at least a week from the final descent.

    Welcome @George :)
    I checked out the FB link that Ryan provided on his post. I noticed a familiar name in one of the pages/posts and I quickly showed my wife. Turns out you customer Cheryl Rucker McQueen is a friend of my wife Margarita and I, talk about a small world :geek:
    Hope to get a ride in together in the future, on the dirt though, I rarely road ride nowadays.:thumbsup:
