Default A Day on the BigHorns

Spent the day with some local riders and a group from SD. 2 Polaris, 6 AC, and 4 Yammis. WOW. Some great terrain up there with something for everyone. I shot nearly 8 gb of pics that I'll go thru and sort/clean up probably tomorrow. Escape is much improved, but still not right. It did manage to make it thru everything everyone else did, just had to work it too much to get it done.

Cuzz, I'll admit it, them Cats can rock. had a couple M10's, an older M9, a M7 with a BB kit, and a couple M7's. All of them rocked it both boondocking and going vertical. I was impressed.

Andy, you never should have gave up your Nytro. I rode with the guy that was telling you over on SW it would come to you, that is a sweet sled. Also had 1 of those Pig Apex along. Extremely nice ride. Of course both these sleds have been on extreme diets. Apex was a monster in the POW.

All in all, had a blast, met some new folks, hell even got invited back.

I'll post up pics later.

That's good you finally got hooked up with a riding group out there. Can't wait to see the pictures!

Speaking of pictures, as a mountain photographer you should be interested in these:

You've probably seen those before, but I thought everyone would enjoy some mindblowing photography.

No actually I hadn't seen that one. Some very nice shots there. Those lightning shots are hard to get.

Another new site some of you may not have seen yet. This guy gets some great action shots.

The group of locals are really cool guys.

I shot over 500 pics today, so it's going to take awhile to go thru and sort them.

I did for the Group pic, but while actively riding, not too keen on handing over camera and lens to someone who may drop it or whatever.

Besides, I explained above, Escape is better, not right. Secondary is hanging up intermittently and not wanting to backshift. Plus either I've got some bad gas or I failed to add enough race fuel, it was detonating on topend pretty hard.

No, that's one of the guys wives from SD. These girls were working those M-sleds out. Great to see females out there mixing it up with the guys and holding there own.
