For me though it is pretty simple. Time off from work, the family and a chance to ride the machines with my brother and my dad. Amazing.
We took Mosquito Ridge road, dropped down into the reservoir and rode back out the canyon through the national forest land. Nary a car or bike around most of the time.
Give me another week like this and I might be in heaven.
Enjoy the the holiday folks.
