Enduro the Sport of Kings


Enduro New Paris Nov 4/5

I by chance happen to ride the bike (250 KTM EXC) pictured below when it is not hobbled by a flat. The exact moment I took this photo the bike had a flat, mild flat it took my lithe frame to create the true flat profile. Enough so that I decided to call it a day since I did not have tools or tube to fix the damn thing. Frank helped me fix it that night with a couple of screw drivers, no kidding, I saw the screw drivers but was terrified at the prospect of puncturing the tube myself or even worse, Franks new home.
This is Frank, the owner of the Raptor trailor and my advisor, he tells me when things are broken or flat, for some reason most of the time I just dont know. I am not saying I am stupid but maybe a little thick at times. Frank has me by about 8 years and beats me everytime racing enduro unless he breaks down, only if he breaks down. He is holding the hose which drains the toliet, shower and sink holding tanks, in that order, which cleans the hose, kinda. I am documenting, so maybe I am not as stupid as I might think.
Dave is holding the yellow tail, Kirkwood the cutlery, Frank the pose waiting for me to stop the nonsense so we could eat. As you see and read enduro is the sport of kings. I was hoping someone would email me some action shots but so far nothing, my best side is with a helmet on, fascinating huh?

The hose would seem to be arguably the most important part of the trailer.

(Why isn't there a show called, "Trick My Trailer"? You got yer, "Trick My Truck," "Pimp My Ride," "Extreme Home Make-Over," etc. There would seem to be a niche for this kind of thing, because you are "tricking" a vehicle and a home at the same time.)

Zen: I like this idea, I think I will run with it, all profits will benefit my passions.

I once rode on the back of a motorbike when the tyre burst. I thought I was going to die. But I didn't. The bike just wobbled loads and that part was exciting!

I just wanted to say that I didn't know if there was some kind of prob between you and Bunyan. I was a bit confused. But that's no different to normal. I'm always a bit confused...

 
At 6:10 PM , Blogger josh williams said...

Erin:Bikers get a bad rap, these guys are top of the line good guys, most enduro riders are, present comment replyer accepted...

Molly: No you are not confused this time Bunyan is a big ole hunk of turd.Dont believe a word he says...

Bono is at a U2 concert in Ireland when he asks the audience for some quiet.
Then in the silence, he starts to slowly clap his hands.

Holding the audience in total silence, he says into the
microphone..."Everytime I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies."

A voice from near the front of the audience pierces the
silence..."Fookin stop doing it then!"

 
At 8:09 AM , Blogger Molly Bloom said...

Oh deary me...I'm even more confused now. Oh well...I just hope that everything is ok.

 
At 8:27 AM , Blogger josh williams said...

Molly: Bunyan is under control...

 
At 9:22 AM , Blogger Molly Bloom said...

I shall now tell you and Bunyan about the injury I inflicted on myself when riding a motorbike. Have you noticed how the exhaust pipe is extremely hot? Like red hot? I was wearing a short skirt on my bike (yes, I know..I'm an idiot - but the joys of reckless youth y'know) and I put my leg down and there was this awful sizzling sound and I burnt off the side of my leg. It looked really impressive and I got loads of sympathy. I really milked it. It didn't scar though..I was amazed.

The relevance of this story is unknown and of no interest to anyone. But, it might stop you two arguing.

I shall take the both of you and line you up like Mrs. Buttress you know. You wouldn't want *that* to happen, now would you?

Or, you could be like Viola and Sir Andrew Aguecheek and have a really funny duel if you like. I shall be the umpire. And I shall bring my cane.

Molly: Your one of those smart people arnt you?
"Methinks sometimes I have no more wit than a Christian or an ordinary man has"... I forgive you your intellignece and think a duel is the best idea, and yes bring your cane...Can we duel on your site, I don't want Bunyans blood all over mine..Kind Regards JW

Molly: I must apologize,your moto tale was splendid, I have many a burn on my leg, no scars...Hmmm?
