Go figure I deploy to Iraq and the thing I miss the most, beside my wife, is my mountain bike! I miss SoMo, Hawes, McDowell Mnt, and Sedona trails where I could ride for hours when ever I want. Now I all I can look forward to is....uh...giant freaking dust storms, 122+ degree weather, spiders bigger than my dog, broken A/C units, and the chow hall running out of grub because the convoy did not show up again. :madman: :D

When I come home I am going to ride until my a$$ falls off. :thumbsup:

Thanks for your family's sacrifice!

Really appreciate what you are doing for all of us over there and please keep your head down! Look forward to seeing you ASAP on one of the trails you mentioned.

Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

A fellow rider I met while down in Georgia spent hours upon hours in spin class on his tours to the sandbox, and he's come back to racing scene with a few recent podium finishes.

Keep your head down, and come back safe.

I know what you mean. I was in Afghanistan in 2002 and Iraq in 2003. As soon as I got back I bought 2 bikes a haro escape and a specialized enduro comp, rode the heck out of them, until the haro was stolen and then sold the enduro due to not having enough room to bring it home when I ETS'd. Now I own a Enduro Expert, a Kona Kula deluxe, and slowly building up my Voodoo Wanga singlespeed. Ride hard when you get back.
