    I planned my skid photos for today, but it rained and poured last night, so there is NO dust to kick up and I took a 9 year to work the DSLR camera, and her timing was a little off. I have some if I need to fall back on them, but I really need to try again.

    Rode it to beach volleyball tonight and when i rode off a curd the rear wheel went all cockeyed and locked up resulting in even more paint loss. Yea me! Stupid glitter paint. Will be adding lock washers tomorrow I guess.

    Well, looks like life has intervened again ... bike is a blast to ride but I haven't done squat in the way of pics and weekends are full of birthdays, honey-do's and rain for the next 3 days. Will have some klunking pics eventually, but for now i just get watch instead :roll: Oh, well. Best of luck to all the fine klunker pilots this year !!!
     
  13. Don't let the rain stop you, it just adds to the fun and makes it easier to slide! :mrgreen:

    It's not the rain stopping me per say, but the photographer might not find it as fun as I do lol

    Doesn't look like I am going to be getting my pic. :( With over 12" of rain in the last 2 weeks (3" last night) There isn't a trail that I want to ride at the moment. Not to mention my stoker and photog are not keen on playing in the rain. If we ever get dried out I will get a pic for giggles. That is if I don't put the bike up for sale before the rain quits.

    So my brakes never locked the way I wanted, I don't think the shoes are doing the trick, so here's my ultimate embarrassing pic, my slightly buzzed cousin trying to show me how to slide on my Redline gee thanks for the salt in the wound..

    Like I mentioned earlier, I went out Thursday, but it had just rained, my 9 year old was using the DSLR (not use to it), and I discovered a chain link with the pin not all the way in place as I was walking down the trail, so I'll just give you the best I got... I didn't get dressed for nothing, so here's all I got. Weak sauce sliding, but I was going easy as I didn't want to snap the chain and crash into all my kids.
