Last ride before Christmas saw five of us, well you can't see me behind the camera, and one other guy left already, out for a merry little ride. With some fresh snow down on the ice, riding was 100% better and there were no crashes and only a few fishtails, so we ended up getting in a good long loop without an ass-to-ice incident.
The cast of characters included: Tony, Craig, Mike V, Rider X, and myself. Sorry rider X, I can't remember your name right now, although your story about your three crashes in the last week, and the fact that your wife now calls you something like A Stupid-Ass Crazy Bastard, sparked some ideas for creating new titles for the CB membership. Also thank you Rider X, for coming back and bringing me back from the black pit of off-the-back several times. Also thanks to Craig for bringing beers for an after ride drink in the lot. Nothing like drinking a cold one outside after a ride in 20 something temps.
While the Holidays are a time of love and joy and all that crap, it's still good to know that inside Crazy Bastards are still real bastards at heart. Just when you think you're getting all warm and fuzzy you catch a glimpse of what's really going on inside. This quick snap of Tony after the ride says it all, don't you think? It's like "screw the Holidays, back off you freak or I'll crack ya' over the head with this bottle."
