Probably more stupid than anything but what the heck, I lived to tell the tale.
There weren't any good reruns on the TV so might as well go for a ride.
I think my death mud run on Friday morning was a better tale but no pics. Real fun having to carry your bike since it's so clogged with mud it won't turn :shock:

Monsoons in AZ are no joke

Oh come on. What kind of fool wants to ride so badly that he’d do that?

^^^ I know you’re careful, but still — be careful! I just read that a dirt biker up by Murrieta suffered heat stroke, a crash, and a brain hemorrhage on Sunday. In the ICU now. Sometimes we push too hard and don’t listen to our bodies.

Thanks and I try to be careful. It wasn't really bad at all. One thing I have tried to do for some time now is to hydrate a lot the day BEFORE I ride and during the day of the ride. this seems to help me and I find i drink less water.
Plus, I've just slowed down being broken and old so I don't push myself. Nothing to prove to anyone or myself and want to get home safely to see the family including my little grand daughter :thumbsup:
