This is the reason we ride,

Here is Mike leaving his tent, at least the one he didn't hit his head on the walls.

My pics suck but at least there is proof Mike rides and not just use it to ditch his wife to hang out with chicks!

Pics of the chicks were deleated .

P.S. deleate chicks insert Snakes.
