Still want to ride in mud?

Images from yesterdays and last night from 24 hour Gutbuster from north of Dallas. Photo credit to Craig Reed. Race was stopped at 12 hours due to so many bikes broke down on course and most folks had quit anyway! A real tough one for sure. To clarify, not me, friends from here formed 2 teams for Cycle Shack North racing.

Re: Still want to ride in mud?

Yea, based on current conditions, I'd guess the mud was pretty bad. Good thing the sun came out and at least gave you nice weather yesterday though, even if you were playing in a huge mud bath.

Re: Still want to ride in mud?

I used to love taking the Jeep out in some mud. Got over that as time went on. All mud did was infiltrate and destroy things prematurely. If it's in the way sure. If there's a way around, I'm going that way.

When I trail ride I always take the path of least resistance, way easier on me and the bike!

Re: Still want to ride in mud?

I know a LOT of riders hate sand. Me...? I love it. I'll take sand over ANY mud ANY day! Mud is like Kryptonite to my riding abilities... I just have never been able to figure out how people ride when there is almost zero traction

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Still want to ride in mud?

In Argentina the front wheel locked up with mud and I skied down the hill from there. I remember thinking, "I'm a long way from home, to be sliding through the mud!" That's my wheel path, coming down the hill from in the ditch. I couldn't stop, had to keep sliding.

That was scary mud, but nothing like the pictures above.

Re: Still want to ride in mud?

Ahh to be young again... My son raced this event and I think if it hadn't been for the commitment to his team and sponsor he may not have ever gone. But I think once it was underway that desire to compete kept them going.

I've been to events where the haulers had to be pulled out, but they were actually pulling the haulers into this one.





His bikes are always meticulously maintained.



He's going to be busy...
