Day #2 (Pre-Ride) San Felipe R&R

San Filipe R&R (Rest and Repair): After arriving in SF we got hotel rooms, secured the bikes, and took showers; boy did that feel refreshing. Then we all walked over to the beach

and found a restaurant that served up something Springer and company had experienced before – Bacon wrapped large Shrimp.

The waitress was a little overwhelmed with drink and food orders, but managed to get it all mostly right.

During dinner, we discussed what had been going well, and what areas needed more focus on. It came up during this discussion that we could forgo the 50-miles from RM220 to RM270 but Dean and I were hesitant to agree to this. We were here to pre-run the course and if that meant driving/riding back 70-miles on the highway to do it, that’s what we’d do. The plan was to return to SF that night, so we were going to be doing the longest day so far – 130-miles from RM220 to RM350. Deano wasn’t real happy to run the bikes on the highway, and they all needed some TLC before we departed in the morning. Returning to the hotel, a few of us bought another 12-pack of carbohydrates of the “Tecate” variety and polished those before hitting the sack. In the morning, bright and early for some, later for others, we set about cleaning air-filters, checking oil, and checking for loose nuts, and bolts.
Then we loaded up the two CRF450X’s and departed on SBR-Time out of town.

The "Ball Buster" is coming up...
