This is Mike's wife. It is my bike by the way, and it is referred to as a "him" not a her. I don't ride no her. Can you believe he tore my bike up? Guess the few scrathes I put on it in the desert is nothing now compared to this, which I got scolded for tearing MY bike up. Of course, I didn't say a word to him about it....now this is Mikie typing....she is a damn liar! she is ONNN me.
 
With ropes attached to the front tire and the footpeg the guys pulled the bike downstream and over the falls to the tree where I ended up.

Here is Onelugnut and Nat with the big orange trout.



This gives you a good idea of the whitewater Mike and I came down



Scott giving directions!!!!!!



Onelugnut and Nat still trying to land their fish!

























Okay, so now we have Scott on the other end pulling with the quad!!:banana:

What a day. Now we still had about 15 miles back to the trucks... Everyone went and geared up and Mike was going to be towed out by a QUAD :P :smirk:



Here is my boy with his new ride! I bet he never forgets his first ride on his 07 wr 250 f. :smirk:



Hi Mike :wave:



Bye Mike :wave:





This bridge is a couple of miles downstream from where we went swimming






About this time a guy in pick up came up and we loaded up the bike thinking it would be easier. Man that was a long ride in the back of a truck holding on to that dirtcycle :prof:



My son and I met these guys in a nearby campground when we went looking for cell service.



Here we are loaded up and back in the truck :banana:
