i'm super stoked! :D:):thumbsup::D

took gigi out to a trail i've only been on once before...think rolling hills...now think rolling hills with boulders embedded in them...now make those hills not-so-rolling (steeper)...that's the trail...techical ups and downs...literally feels like you're going uphill both ways!

the last time i was there i was on the crappy HT...and i got worked pretty bad...i was pretty bruised and bloody at the end...some pretty neat bruises too...i kept getting those 'oh honey, is your boyfriend beating you?' looks from people! :p

this time, we took a different route...straight down, and then straight back up back to the car...but...different bike and different rider...didn't fall once...ok...fell once...but it was while i was goofing off waiting for someone, so it doesn't count...and i made it up some really technical uphills i have never cleared before...as i was riding them and i couldn't believe i was making it! :D very cool! :thumbsup: and there were a couple of uphills that were totally hike a bike, and i could not believe i rode down them and made it :)...and all i have to say is gigi rocks on the rocks!!! :thumbsup::) ...and so do i! :D

not only that, but i caught some awesome air on the downhills! that's pretty new in my biking repetoire also...and boy was it fun! :) now i really want an rfx! :yesnod:

i didn't take too many pics...what can i say...i'm still a homer in training...but i will definitely take more next time i go out there...and maybe one day i'll get good enough to take pictures of myself riding (a la BZ) :). but here are a couple:

1) view from the trail
2) rock garden section...like butta, baby! :) :thumbsup:

Sounds fun! Who or what is "gigi?" I'm guessing it's your 5 Spot perhaps? Flux? Maybe I've missed previously posted pics. You're in Phx, AZ right? We're headed back to your neck of the woods for New Years to ride some more of your trails. Can't wait.

Don't knock them til you've tried 'em. There's syrup INJECTED into the pancake/bun. It's breakfast food at it's technological pinnacle.

Congrats Dh, I dig that rocky stuff, Nice shot over the wheel! (good use of the fill-flash)
Yeah, get a little speed and all of a sudden yer thinking of an RFX... Homeritis, absolutely. Ever notice, sooner or later most people end up with more than one Turner?:D

Hey, next time you pack your camera, bring one of these. They weigh next to nothing and make taking shots way easy!

BTW, I named my bikes too... Huck' and Flo' :thumbsup: :cornut:
