Wow...I guess it's a good thing that skid was pulled! If that bolt would have came out it could have been very BAD.

So far so good with the Dragon. . . all seems to be intact. I am going through it this weekend and checking everything out. Feb. 7th thru 11th our group will be out in the Black Hills riding, so all checks need to be done this weekend.[:)]

We rode on Sunday morning and found some nice play areas. . . un-touched this year. Should have rode Sunday with us Ian! You would have loved the areas we rode.[thumb] 364 miles in 2 1/2 days for us. . . not bad for all the playing and delays we had. It all made for a great time guys.

I will put together another video with photos and video taken from everybody. With my trip west, it might be a few weeks before SF 2008 video is ready. Our group got some good video of jumps, climbing and forest road riding with the helmet cam.

I'll post some older helmet cam footage I took while riding my Prox8.

All in all I had a great time but I will definitely have some summer rebuilding to do on the sled[beatup] One trailing arm to replace and mount to push back forward (right side). Left side got pushed back on the powerlines when I found the boulder[Disappointed] Bear with me guys, someday I will learn how to ride a sled[thumb] Thanks again to all the guys who make this ride so smooth[8D] A special thanks to greasemonkey, wallygator, 2SEWings, and thezoo, for getting my sled back in running order Thursday night[thumb] Thanks to thezoo also for taking the time to look at my mini van and working on it Saturday night[8D] Hope to see you all again next year[:p]

I noticed that somebody messed with my helmet.

I had a twelve pack of Summit on ice and couldn't waste any time loading up a sled or puting helmets away.

As far as racing goes me and theZoo lined 'em up. I'm not talking.

For those that missed the ride. . . here is some helmet cam video of a typical small forest road. [:)]

This video is NOT from this weekend, it is 2 years old. I will post my videos when I transfer them from my video camera. [thumb]

Sorry for the low quality video, I compressed the file to make it easier to upload on the the SF site.

After I got Ericks rail stripped down today, this is what it looked like
200812914303460_11185.jpg

Went to where the Zoo works and borrowed their press to tweak the rail into place.
Came out pretty straight. It's all back together with new hyfax. All it needs is a new wheel.

The sled doesn't steer too good with carbides looking like this. Blasted rocks.

Tomorrow when Erick comes up we will put the skid back in so he can break it again.[:D][:D]

man i can only guess what my carbides look like after seeing those. think next year if the snow conditions are the same i better have new skis to replace my c&a pro's or else its going to be a game of dodge the rock again.


cheers
