and the GREAT ESSCAPE begins...but begins with a bit a whimsy as one John McKinnon, owner of many a Euro scoot, must not have gotten the memo about the dirt offing by the group...though John has joined for many an ESSCAPE ride on the road, he decided to have a look see at what this dirt adventuring was about, and graced us with a showing of his most recent purchase ~ that of what looks to be a spectacular example of brand spanking new (sans some mountain twisted road miles already under foot) Aprilia Tuono R...bespeckled with lovely bits of carbon spalshed throughout (not to mention the gob smacking set of Arrow carbon cans), John came out to capture mental notes, if not a few pics, of what the lads have been on about of late, and what hopefully will be his and Craig Cocke's participation in the near future...that is to say, their vested interest in true bits of "On Any Sunday" adventuring...

in the rolled over image, we see the smattering of felons who are about to saddle up and give the dirt a bit of flogging...from left to right are John McIntosh (who bellies up to the bar with the smackest KTM 450 EXC known to dirt kind), newbie to the group Ed Nahmur, Jack Brown, Rocky Brower, and the cheshire grinning new 625 SXC owner, Steve Foote, who later in the ride, showed the metal that the high flow head turns to in an all out drag strip 3 bike length winning form...
not exactly a bunch you want to bring home to meet dear Mah Ma, but I am quite sure that dirt biking Dad would nod with general approval if not a beauty queen wave of the freed hand not holding a gentleman's proper scotch...
