[TR] The Mighty Tooth - 8/23/2008

Recommended Posts

Trip: The Mighty Tooth -

 

Date: 8/23/2008

 

Trip Report:

Scampered up the Mighty Tooth. It was fun as always.

 

Actually this TR is just an excuse to post a picture of the new wheels that took me up to the trailhead; a really fun 600. Now that it's broken in, it's really, really fun. Maybe too fun... The thing just floats around the curves whereas the old FJ lumbered. On smooth tarmac it's like carving through some steep creamy powder. Mmmm, creamy... now I'm thinking about a tall cool glass of Guinness.

 

Anyway, here's the damn picture:

Gear Notes:

6 plus neutral

 

Approach Notes:

Spiffy new ride

Nice bike. Riding is like carving powered turns. Be safe.

 

Thanks, and will do. You too mate.

 

Actually I have taken skis on other bikes I've owned. Definitely does not help the handling though.

I remember following you up to Snocrummy Pass one winter day about 9 years ago thinking you drive like a madman. Drive safe!

Kurt! Hope you're doing good these days.

 

Nope, no additional damn horses; just unloaded, er, sold our house. You noticed that it's LEI red not just red, right?

 

Cheers!

Howdy Mike, hope you're doing good too. That trip must have been in the old Peugeot wagon? Nothing handles like a car you don't give a crap about...

I did notice that it seemed like the same color of a certain Volvo.

I like how the letters on the side say "ZZR".

 

That's the sound my 4 yr old son would make while imitating it!
