The CityBike Wrecking Crew goes to Bungee Brent’s Backroad Bash every year—it’s become something akin to an annual corporate retreat, which I understand is what real companies call these outings that serve as backdrops for trust falls, sexual harassment and blackmail fodder. It’s a bit of a misnomer, though: we’re not corporate, and we damn sure don’t retreat. Ever.
It’s been too long since I last wrote about our CRF250L long term dual-sport project. I crashed it at last year’s Backroad Bash and broke my foot, and the subsequent recovery time kept me out of the dirt for a while, although much to my doc’s chagrin, not off bikes in general.
