Espis ride report

My 1st ride report... ever.
So I decided to do this trip last minute- like fri @ 10am!

I end up leaving @ 1:30pm from Irvine.



head up the 15...



to see this just before Cajon Pass. must have been going to Ft. Irwin.

So, I finally get on the 395 out of Victorville & feel the heat of the Mojave- wasn't that bad as long as you kept moving.






yep, 209 to Bishop...

well, i knew which way i was gonna be heading for a while...







then, 1st sight of the So. Sierras soon I would be out of the Mojave







Is that precip up ahead???




Yep! it sure is! Soo now, I'm in the Owens Valley, starting to sloowly climb in elevation- seems like i haven't really left the heat of the Mojave behind me.




So, I missed that storm cell






holding indicated 80mph, which is 73mph on my gps. this is with one less tooth on the front sprocket. Engine was pretty whiney... but it held that velocity when i wanted it to.





leaving Lone Pine... & yes, its getting dark.
thats it for fridays pics.
Rolled into camp after dodging the cows that guard the entrance to Browns Camp @ 8:30pm.


Next day, JoefromSF had to deal with his slow air leak in the front tire. He just put a tube in it.






view from camp





Joel briefing his So. Cal. crew while they all look intent








Whats he saying




Our turn to gear up after Joe fixed his leak
