Sorry Chuck D, but all of Jack's rides are epic.  That's just the way it is.

At least, compared to mine, they are!  And as long as that's true, I'll allow it.  ;)

Chuck, head out to your local mountains and put in 300 miles +/- 50 and see if you don't think it was EPIC! To make it more exciting throw in a bit of ice and snow and 50 MPH winds! And throw in a pickup that thinks you would make a nice hood ornament! The good roads around here are plentiful and challenging and let you push the Enfields as hard as you want to. Yeah, Epic is a good word!

I suppose the word "incredible" could have been used in place of "epic".  :-\

The problem with "incredible" is it reminds me of the story about a guy who was telling a few others about a long and harrowing trip he had made.

Every so often, a guy in the crowd would say, "incredible!".

After a number of these "incredible"s had been made the story teller stopped and asked the guy why he kept interrupting by saying "incredible"?

The guy said, "My mom taught me to always be polite by saying 'incredible' instead of bull shit."

Jack and Bare have sole ownership of the term 
EPIC. Anybody else using the term EPIC would be considered conduct unbecoming an Enfield enthusiast, punishable by bad karma.
