    Phew, what a weekend.
    Thanks to @Postal Pat for driving and to @DangerDirtyD for the laughs.
    It was great to meet the new peeps and awesome to reunite with the rest of the crew.
    I got to ride with everyone by going in different parts of the group. I even tried to sweep at one point but @Voodoo Tom kicked me out.

    Just a few pics

    It was great to be away from work and be surrounded by great peeps. I think @Cyclotourist caught me staring off into space when we regrouped near Grandview point. Thanks for snapping me out of it :thumbsup:

    Love these pics from the raised vantage point!

    I appear to be checking out @DangerDirtyD 's ass, not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Y'know, with all the love shown to two of the Guerilla Gravity bikes, I realize the third and most recent to arrive on the scene garnered no attention at all - and that was the black (with red go-fast accents) Trail Pistol under the stalwart @Danimal. I guess if it's not bright blue, or doesn't have colored spokes it's just another bike :(. Don't worry Dan, I thought it was awesome and a great replacement for that tired, creaky Rocky Mountain! :thumbsup::cool::inlove:

    I checked out Dan's TP in the parking lot and I like. The red gives it a bit of flash. I assume that Dan had a wonderful ride on it up there as well.

    Oh, and Herz, sliver is where it's at. SILVER. Go see @SnakeCharmer's bike... :D

    That's a fair statement!
    I was more interested in Dan and actually never really saw his bike. I happen to be standing there when @buggravy pulled in the parking lot and I was left standing there with his new composite bad boy staring back at me chest height siting on his bike rack. I never got the chance to ogle Dan's bike.
    @Danimal please let's ride soon as I have a growing interest in the GG movement and want to ogle your bike and toss a little drool it's way as well!

    I did get a chance to ogle Dan’s bike. It is a thing of beauty, and an absolutely killer spec.

    Looks like a blast! Sorry I missed it. Went to Mammoth for a special hike with the dog. Really looking forward to meeting up with everyone soon.

    Yeah, That's right I didn't get no Love! Although @SnakeCharmer and @buggravy checked it out and got two thumbs up from them. :thumbsup:
    As I've been riding it I've come to really like this GG Trail Pistol with the Red ( red is faster Ya know), even though @Luis is correct and bucked me off and isn't completely tamed yet. :oops:
    I thought that with @DangerDirtyD @buggravy and myself all riding GG bikes this was quite the concentration of them all in one place given what a small footprint the company has.

    The ride was Frickin' awesome, getting to see everyone, break in the new ride, ride some dirt haven't been to in quite some time, talk smack, eat good food. Awesome ride with awesome people!
