This was me at the start of the ride!
then after doing the 150 mile ride on an XR400,


Can't really complain. It was the perfect day, 80 miles of canyon riding and twisties, then another 60 miles of dirt (no dust, hard pack, some mud, lots of water crossing....just absolutely great condition). The weather was cool, sometimes cold which I would rather have when wearing armor and boots.

Made it home around 4pm, plenty of time to spare before the rain came down. Took me 1 1/2 hour to do 50 mile ride home. The XR beat the hell out of me, aside from the vibs, I can feel every little imperfection on the road. I'm really exhausted .

I thought by taking the XR, I could keep up with Sito and Nowwhat, shit I was wrong. These guys kick ass. Not they pressure me to ride harder, I find it beneficial for me. I feel a better rider now than when I started doing dirt 6 months ago.

Pictures coming up soon, still uploading. Pretty interesting pics....

Thanks Nowwhat and Sito for coming along, you guys made my day! Great lunch at the Rock Inn, hanging out with the Harleys and Goldwings. Lots of chrome in the parking lot with the exception of the XR and 950E.

This is one of my best ride this year
