Easy, just twist the throttle.

Didn't quite make it up a rock face.

The bike is setup with a soft throttle right now and it's messing me up. I expect a certain amount of power when I twist but with the soft throttle, you don't get that power until you twist further.

I'm switching to the normal throttle.

I got my braap on a weekly basis. I think I'm starting to smell like to 2-stroke oil.

My guys decided to mutiny, and all left early today. I decided to make the best of it by going for a little afternoon ride on vedder. Managed to clock 55km and got out just before dark.

The good news is that I had an awsome ride! Rode some ultra gnar and learned a new skill…..getting my bike on the back tire to make a 180 degree corner.

The bad news is that vedder is looking pretty grim. The logging hasn't been kind to the mountain or the trails. At one point the top is completely flatened. I had a good loop that was mostly singletrack. now parts of it will have to be linked up with roads.

Give me time with a map. I will come up with a new loop.

I may go back tomorrow, but not super early. My boss is letting me take the weekend off, so I need to take advantage of it.

I'll take a slice of Vedder pie in the afternoon.

What's the call ATP? 3ish?
