    Jury is still out as to whether the Hell's Revenge rock that did this...


    Also did this to poor Betty's frame...

    A visit to Dan the Barefoot Welder got me back on the road.
    Competing theory is that frame got fractured same time I broke my subframe in four places Thursday when we failed to clear a leap across a little arroyo. Lack of rubber isolation mounts on the Ricochet skid plate really transmit shock loads to the frame. Stock rubber mounts are good for the same reason your helmet has a foam liner rather than being directly bolted to your skull.

    Well it ain't a true Moab get together until something on Betty breaks. Mission accomplished now let the fun begin!

    Oh yeah and that foot don't look too good Fred. Maybe you could get that welded back into shape as well

    Sorry to hear about the frame and foot, but it looks like you are still managing to have some fun.

    Yesterday I could cram foot back into Adventure boot so a few of us rode down to the Green River at Mineral Bottom and upstream to Hell Roaring Canyon and the French fur trapper's graffiti.
    Nice easy ride, was a bit warmer and less wind than up on high country

    Then I rode to island in sky to get permit for Thursdays White Rim planned ride. And then back to camp via Gemini Bridges. Nice 1.9 gallon ride but weather is still windy and cold

    We are all having a grand time , great people to visit, wrench and ride with. Blown fork seals and smashed turn signals seem to be a reaccuring Moab theme.
    A few sore muscles but no real injuries. This foot is slowing me down a bit so I'm the one with the funny walk. Won't make the 3+ mile hike into Wild Horse Canyon to see the famous Grand Gallery pictographs as planned on my way home.

    At least you did your foot there and can still ride, I did mine before and can't ride, hope to see the surgeon soon and get a walking boot so I can get in and out of the camper and can go to Moab and at least camp and visit. Ever tried to get in a camper with crutches? Hell I just about kill myself trying to get around my house, them things are dangerous...
