None of those namby pamby shiny bike in your kitchen shots. I want to see down and dirty and big and hairy (XC shots with epic views are encouraged). The bike porn equivalent of scheisse vids.

You already saw this one...



Then there' s Barb...





Over a hundred days and counting on my Delerium T this summer. It's quite a bike.....

While I wholeheartedly endorse the idea of this thread and look forward to the pics it will bring, I am sure it will do nothing but further the amount of drool flowing from my mouth over Noel's frames. Oh yeah, it may end up hurting my wallet too.

Wow - very close! It's actually the upper section (first) of the two.

Cheers!

When you look down that first pitch it doesn't look nearly that smooth, as with any picture it's all about the angle. Love that line, Dales rock face and that line make that route worth the ride.

I remember Barb warning me at a trail day early last season just as I was about to pick up the stick to play fetch with Harley. Best move is to push Harley back with a foot just as you reach in to snatch the stick, or just pick a new stick each throw.

It seems like the season has flashed by in a second and I have nothing but my memories as testament to my best year of riding ever. After being out the country for two years, I got back in April, desperate to make up for all the riding time I had lost out on and in desperate need of a bike. I was introduced to Noel and my V-Tach and the season is a blur of speed and adrenalin.

I had to email a friend to get this photo off him...but wait...it looks like this weekend is going to be awesome and I am definitely taking my camera!

While working on the local trails, some "random" Knolly rider blazed through an unfinished stunt.



I had to change the line when I saw how far he was clearing the tranny.

LOL - that's defintiely starting to be an issue.

However, white V-tachs in large are pretty rare and I think I still know MOST of the people who own them. The 66 RC2X and the white helmet, combined with Caskey's "Fast as possible racer style position" on the bike were give aways (not to mention the lack of elbow pads!). Though I did have to think for 30 seconds or so to figure out who it was!

Ya, trying to find the time to come visit. I told Laurence that there is wine close by and we're trying to figure out how to combine the two :) How far away is Quail's Gate from you?

Quails Gate? About 6 minutes if you time the lights right.

Also Boucherie and Mission Hill are right here..

There's roughly 80 or 90 wineries within 90 minutes of here now.

Some trails end at wineries (Hillside in Penticton, the Golden Mile in Oliver, and Orofinon in Cawston).

The Okanagan Valley. I live in a small city called Westbank, which has seriously kickass riding. There's also Kelowna (overhyped traffic hell) and a bunch of other pretty little towns like Penticton, Oliver, Vernon, and Summerland. All thos pics I've been posting are from this zone.
