I'm sure glad I didn't get involved in those shenanigans.

Hiya Kevin!

Great pics. I think the only pics I took were of the blue tick hound and maybe the weimaraner.

Glad you made it over, hadn't seen you in quite a while since I've either missed gatherings at the Scrub, or the regular gatherings didn't happen at all a couple of times.

See ya next time.

Great pics Kevin! (hide those other pics I know you have) Haven't seen so many cool airhead pics since my last Coonbottom!!

Mark - what the hell are you growing on the sides of that handsome face?

Hope to see ya Memorial Day!

Mark and Mr Tuna...good to see ya again at the Old's Cool!!

Hey Motogirl...better put your shades on when you venture "outside" SADD Great to see you and mobeer again too! Had a fun little ride up to the RDV with mobeer on Thursday, here's a few pics.

My wife rode with me leaving the neighborhood










Then after a slab run to get out of the 'hood we just zig-zagged back roads the rest of the way.


We stopped for a burger in cowboyland.










mobeer decompressing from the slab ride from Florida the night before.....










That was a fun road..look between the poles to see where we came from....







RDV

I'm exceptionally bad about not taking any pics while I'm hanging around a rally site. Don't really know why just didn't take any more pics Thursday.

Friday morning I took a few while waiting for the riders of the "Late Train" to assemble.

Check out this FZ1 prototype that was at the RDV on a shake down run!






It's not complete and a few things were cobbled together quickly just to make the trip.





Didn't hear of any problems with it...he followed me and did just fine!










Happy Riding between my bike and the FZMonster with the growing sea of tents behind.











Almost crunch time! Friday's ride started with 14 bikes.




....more later.....

In an effort to keep a group ride rolling along there's not as many photo-ops but I still try to toss the camera up for a shot or two. Lots of green now compared to some of my scouting pics.













This was Friday's straight away.








That very quickly turned into lots of this.








The conditions on Friday were absolutely perfect! Hard packed, tacky and dust free from the recent rains but we enjoyed moderate temps and sunshine!















Uhoh










The guys cleaning up that mess were great and moved off the bridge to let us pass!














...and guess what?.......We still have 14 out of 14 bikes in the group!


But then we had to suffer through some of this.






....more later.....

It was for me anyway!! Lots of 'em told me that they had fun too so that makes a guy feel good.

Even though I did make 'em suffer through some more slab sections.






























Here we are waiting at the end of a steep and dirty mtn crossing, no pics from me but it turns out that one of the old GSPDs took a little nap on the climb. ooops.








some scenes from the dirt












Mr. Cigars & Scotch




























I decided to stop and regroup at Whitetop in an effort to not lose anybody on the little zig-zag that was to come........it didn't work, we still left 4 behind somehow?!?


FZ1Monster



GSPD

We were eating lunch in Taylors Valley when it became apparent that we were missing 4 because of a broken link in the "always wait for the rider behind you at every turn!" rule.


They missed out on this little road that advtenn pointed me towards that resembles an old RR grade.

















Friday is work day for most folks.






See that dumptruck on the left? We met those riding down through some marbles so while the group was finishing lunch I retraced that section and found it to be clear, which was a good thing. The others were about ready to ride upon my return.





I left the group at a gas station in Damascus and swept the town looking for their bikes but only found some of advtenn's group and no trace of my missing riders.


On the way back I had the group follow gps breadcrumbs to where we lost them while I swept that old RR rd and met them there.....no luck. At least we knew nobody was stranded along the side of the road so we continued on course with 10.




The GSPD that took a nap earlier was also having clutch noises so we split the group on purpose this time with about 1/2 just taking the quickest route and the remaining 1/2 following me through the dirt.



...more later....

Wildflowers were worth a stop in many places but all they got was a fly-by.














You regulars have seen this scene already.




























The group headed down to the New River... isn't it America's oldest?




















......more.....

On the home stretch Friday afternoon












Looks like a few more have arrived during the afternoon!!








iDave is the first to greet me as I pull in!!








Before I even have a chance to get the helmet off Steverino pulls in!






...and who is with him? none other than Drif10!!






I have a feeling these guys had helicopters chasing them all day.





That's all my pics from Friday......Sat & Sun coming up.......
