here are a few photos of our trip this Fri/Sat it was, as the Mosquito Inn bar keep said "starting to get tooshy deep on a 10 foot indian. He did not use the word toosy though!!We did find some that was up to my waist, I am 5'9" so it was pretty good. Good stucks were to be had. Had 2 short tracks with us that got buried pretty good. the short tracks were greener than I was so I did not call screen name "kingofmountain" to ride as we would have held him back. We made the NON-Boondockers cry and we had to go back to the trail!!! picked up a dusty 1974 cheeta on the way home...dont laugh it still runs but needs some major cleaning up!!

Great pics, Randy! It's nice to know that some folks are able to get to the snow this year.

Wonder how the Cheetah would have handled the deep stuff! Man, ya gotta love technology, eh?

To whom it may concern,

It would appear to me that Mr.Gunther is my only friend, whether I can ride or not he's the only one who calls. So hats off to all the friends who did not call me to go riding this weekend. But don't fret, I got called into work all weekend, where I had no friends or fun. LOL Glad you guys had fun, we'll ride the next time or the next time or maybe the next time after that. Ha Ha! Enjoy your eveing.

Snowmaker, you should not look so deep. I'm not known for having a very serious side.

boy oh boy!! I enjoyed reading the post's above. LOL! Kingofmountain, I wanted to let you and that gunther character know that I really saved you. We boondocked for 2 hours and the sally's we were with had to go back to the trail. I knew that would happen and did not want to put you through the misery. And please note that many times when Mr. Gunther calls he uses my phone....doesnt that count as a call frome me???? LOL!! Its looking like the end of Februrary to March for the next run up. I will for sure call you, on Mr. Gunthers phone!! What weekend are you gone out west? We will come up that weekend!! LOL!!!! but really, whats the dates for that so we can plan around it. That Gunther dude is also leaving in March to go to Florida. Whats that!!!! Florida in winter....during riding season!!!! Hows March 3 and 4th for you guys?

I will call ya later. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif Hey, i could say I call you all the time but get the answering machine.....wait, you dont have one!! http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif See, never can leave a message.

Looks like a 72 Cheetah. 399 Kawi. Used to be the king of powder in their day. Had a tendency to suck a lot of snow into the carb. Lots of great memories with the 72.
