    The weather was perfect, the sun must have got to my head. I should have grabbed this 20" with the cool bars asking $60
    Could have flipped the other parts :!: :!:

    Took a short ride with mpr455, OldGreaser and his son Johnny, Ratina, And Myself and Garret

    My other son Taber has a badly bruised foot wasn't up for the ride so he stayed behind and hung out with my wife.
