I Found my Mojo...Then I went Boom!

Welcome back Goat...its been a while.

Last night was our weekly TiTs ride hosted by PBR, congregated locally by MTBR.

Everyone else must of been stuffed turkey's from all the thanks given as the Goat led 90 % of the ride. I know, how the hell did that happen? The Alfine must be feeling the pressure as I recently went out and bought a Surly Cog and have been threatening for the past week that I will be selling the 1500 gram anchor. More on that later....

The ride started at Ironworks, our favorite little Lakewood Brewery and ladie's 80's hair bar. As per usual PBR and Lubes took to the front but by the time we hit Green Mtn and the Hayden trail, the goat made a pass while those two were suckin wind. For the rest of the evening I pulled the night train...6 riders pulling on the goat's tail all evening long....Till the Vista Trail.

Vista Trail starts with some painful rolling climbs and then becomes a mostly sidehill style downhill with a few rollers mixed in....My Captain Control was way out of control as I came around a curve and all the sudden I looked to my right and rear of my bike was in front of the front of my bike....just before I could have my oh shit! moment I was flying....I felt like super man for all of 2.5 milliseconds and then I hit the ground with a great resounding BOOM! Yardselling my camera and a few other items I tumbled to a stop where I laid there chewing on the tall grass as Bad Andy! and the rest of the crew came pullin up..

Later...2am in the morning...

I wake up silent screaming and hobble around the house for 15 minutes as a cramp in my left thigh takes hold and throws me into the bowels of agony....the goat's final paid fee for being the night's leader.

1st - what other 2am's are there? 2am in the evening?
2nd - you should have gone to Buff Rose and stayed as long as PBR did - you wouldn't have had to wake up for the cramp - cuz you would have still been at the bar!
