    If you can’t stand to see a little blood don’t look.
    This is what happens when you look back to see where Rick is. Just clipped a juniper tree that was burned in the Crown Fire (2010)
    This happened at about 10 mph. Didn’t crash or even dab but those twigs got me good
    Just scratches.
    Second picture was just horsing around.

    Thanks. It just takes us old guys a little longer to heal up.

    There is a force out there against which even mighty Wolfie on a full moon is no match. Beware MAMA BEAR!A50BFE0D-CBFD-408B-A246-EEA57D49DF39.jpeg
    This wily beast shred Wolfie to smithereens, and fed it to her offspring.

    I see what you did there... :D

    And I see what you did there too. Isn't that the second "look back" blood letting reported here in the past few weeks?

    Don't look back
    Your skin will be breakin'
    It's been so long since I used band-aids
    I don't mind when I get ragdolled
    The dirt is callin'
    Today is the day

    I can see
    It took so long just to realize
    I'm much too average
    To always ride
    With my rubber all down and half of a frown
    I'll turn it around (Oh, yes I will)

    I finally see the blood arisin'
    But past the ER I'm drivin'

    It's a bright horizon and I'm all healed now
    I see myself in a brand new way
    The sun is shinin'
    The dirt is tacky
    A perfect day to give some blood away

    I can say
    There's little time left to hurt yourself
    I take advantage of it myself
    Easy things in my life were leading me on
    But that sh¡t is wrong (Oh, yes it is)

    I finally see the dawn arrivin'
    I see beyond the trail I'm ridin'
    Laceration on my left behind (left behind)

    Oh, the sun is shinin'
    And I'm on that trail

    Don't look back
    Your skull could be breakin'
    Rather not see you end that way
    But I don't mind the junipers rakin'
    The trail is callin'
    Today is the day

    I can say
    There's little time left to hurt yourself
    I take advantage of it myself
    Easy things in my life were leading me on
    But that sh¡t is wrong (Oh, yes it is)

    I finally see the dawn arrivin'
    I see beyond the trail I'm ridin'
    Fluids that I left behind (left behind)

    Don't look back
    Don't look back
    Don't look back
    Don't look back

    You know...
    I’ve been thinking about a new thread that revolves around songs converted to mountain bike lyrics. With this one it seems ripe for the picking! Loved it!

    blood happens. sometimes small, sometimes.....If you are riding an aggressive trail or a narrow trail sometimes is often. If it is both it is rare to not knick something if you are riding the trail aggressively too. For me its the latter, I like them technical and narrow and dark, but the main thing is to ride. it is so easy to not ride, stay motivated and ride. Speaking of such, the sun is down, its time to ride
    Happy trails in the dark

    Last night I hit a rut at speed and brushed up against a bush. Scraped right over some of the old wounds.
    Halloween prep I guess.

    That’s right. Carving a turn, or was it an arm?
