Funny story......

......So I rode over to Manawa the other day for a few laps, when out of nowhere a large deer jumps in front of me... Luckily I had a good head of steam, so I was able to "Urlacher" the thing into a tree.... I wouldn't recommend what I did, (I'm still digging bark out of my teeth) but what was done was done, and I wasn't about to leave Bambi's mom laying there. So, I did what any other dedicated sportsman would do and I threw a couple hundred pounds of deer jerky on my back and peddled home. Luckily there was a passing car that took a couple pictures, otherwise nobody would believe it.

Higher Ed.

My bosses here at Grace really want me to go back to school. Something about the school looking better if I have my PhD. I wondering if I can get a 1 hour P.E. credit for the crash course I got in Expert Mountain Biking yesterday. Met up with the man simply known as Holmes yesterday. We were going to take a spin around the new sections at Swanson. I figured that if Holmes went too fast, I could fall back and go my own pace. Not even halfway through the ride we met up with Mod. GREAT, I was now in the middle of an expert sandwich. Well, I survived the first lap with Holmes leading and did a second lap with Mod. I will end with two thoughts. First, thanks to Mod and Holmes for a great ride. WOW those guys can fly. Secondly, Mod, the Goatheads WILL see you in Spearfish next year. (don't make any plans for Labor Day next year fellas)

Not a Goathead in sight.
We need to organize a couple more group rides this year before it gets too cold. (That's right, I said it. Too cold. You probably won't catch me out there in tights this winter, and if you ever did, you'd wish you hadn't.)
I've been exploring the new trails at Tranquility the past couple of Sundays. You can always be assured of two things when the words "new trail" and "Tranquility" are used in the same sentence:
1. You will have a fun and challenging new experience
2. (If you ride rigid) You will have back pain
Thanks for all the hard work, trail building guys. Now, its up to us trail users to get that thing broke in properly.

Let's all be thankful for bacon.....

Thanksgiving has a whole new meaning when your turkey is wrapped in bacon....

Angry Butcher's Manawa Revenge

The Angry Butcher had his revenge this last Saturday, against the evils of Manawa. This time he came loaded with the right weaponry to take out anything that attempted to block his path. Coop also came out for his first ride at Manawa, and his first ride with a GoatHead. He was quick to show off his dirt bike skills. Based on Coop's and Johnny Law's history, I say we all take up dirt bikes in the winter to practice up for the next MTB season.

It was a superb November day for the Professor and I to hit the trails with the guys.

Unicat - Go anywhere RV

There's been a lot of talk lately about the next/ideal vehicle for Team Goathead. I'd like to submit the Unicat for consideration.

Rugged on the outside:

Refined on the inside:

And I'm sure it gets great certainly can't be worse than the Pathfinder.

After 6 years of riding once a year with a few guys, and two trips: I have joined the ranks of a few average guys with average riding abilities who call themselves the MTB Goatheads. Hoorah!
So, here is a pic of average me to get acquainted.
