Ohio Snow Riding

Lots of fun playing around in a new to us area even with snow on the ground. Great day, but a little sore now because I high sided at the end of the day while jumping the bike. Third jump was the charm and my left foot peg stripped the bolts and I had no footpeg after landing. Well, held it long enough to get the speed down before the rear broke loose and I went tumbling in the snow on my left shoulder. Ouch. I'll wait till the shoulder feels better to repair the bike and weld the foot pegs to the bike.

Awesome!

Great music.

I liked it when you were trying to guide him up the hill and he ran right into the person watching. Object fixation?

She, is a new rider but lots of spirit and fearless! We all give her a lot of support because 1. we don't want her to kill herself and 2. it's kind of intoxicating to have a girl out doing that stuff with us big bad guys.

Great video. We moved from Ohio (Oxford) just over 2 years ago. I had a little Yamaha LT2100 that I stomped around in the woods with. I would put the boy in the carrier and cut trail behind our house. Keep on riding.

Oxford, is that down near Cincinnati? Dayto Dirt Riders is the only place I've gone down that way.
