    Sorry about the lack of pics, I forgot the camera in the car. As Jeff mentioned I did take some pics of my mud covered leg with little traces of blood starting to come through at the end of the ride. Not sure how those came out, but they're probably pretty stupid.

    The sight of that Lefty front fork does take some getting used to.

    Glad you guys were able to join us Steve. The entertainment value of JP hucking off that rock as you guys were getting ready to head back was worth it alone.

    I don't anticipate it's going to last as long as the TWAA has after seeing him ride yesterday.

    It is the oddest thing to sit there and look at, but while you are riding you don't even notice it. They claim it is to even out the weight from the drive train that is all mounted on the right.

    The JP hucking at the end was worth the trip out there with the sound of the metal crashing together and then him bushwacking his own trail back up the hill to do it again

    Ahh....that makes sense. I was wondering how the weight balanced out. I also thought that it mught be distracting to see only one fork. They seem to get praised pretty much so they have to be pretty good. Probably lighter too.

    Yes video would have been good. It might have given JP a little added courage to try the drop that he ended up skipping...
