On Saturday, I was planning to just take it easy and do some road riding and maybe head out to Ballarat for some light dirt. Then Rotex & his girlfriend (Jim & Myra), whom I had been talking to on Friday night at the raffle and after at the fire, walked over and asked if I wanted to accompany them out to Titus Canyon. I wasn't so sure about it, but when Rotex said he and Myra were riding a GS Adventure two-up, I thought, why not... At least I'd have someone to help me pick the bike up if it took another nap...

We were getting ready to leave and Prince Ruben came by and was invited along. Here are some photos of our day...

Prince Ruben said Rhyolite was on his bucket list, so we headed there first... We stopped at the outdoor art gallery...

By the entrance, near the wagon chassis


The hottie totem...






Rotex watching his step...


Taking a break at the last supper...




The faces and the sphere...


Carpet matching the drapes...


But I never noticed she was on her knees...


The prospector and the penguin...


The mosaic sofa...






Ghost rider Rotex...


and Myra...


At the Titus Canyon entrance...


When ya gotta go, ya gotta go...


2 GSAs and a GS... Prince Ruben and Myra...






Stopping for a rest and refreshments in Titus Canyon... Titus Canyon is definitely nOOb and big bike friendly...








Myra on her perch... I cannot wait to see her photos of this ride...




My trusty steed...




Trying to figure out why Prince Ruben's bike is so much dirtier than ours... oh, yeah, the silt nap...


Myra took some photos with my camera too...








The dudes, contemplating life, the universe, and everything...




One last photo before heading out of the canyon for the campground...


I had a blast on this ride... I learned tons from following both Prince Ruben and Rotex, watching their lines, their speed, how they were riding in general... I am very glad I went on the ride with these people. Thanks for inviting me along...

Our route, as captured by my Spot Messenger...
