I just like riding

Quick photo dump from this week.
Checking out my shock mount in the timeshare parking lot. Probably the most glamorous garage setting I've ever used. The rear end's still a little clunky, but hopefully it holds up. (The bucket was a gift from the desert.. Or a litterbug drywaller..)
Deburring the rear brake caliper and replacing pads. We'll see (and hope) if these ones will make the entire trip.
A little road trip through Joshua Tree National Monument today:
There's snow on them there hills!
Little side trip. The rest of the group went pavement and I checked out a 4x4 trail.
This met me half a mile up the road. It's about a foot deep.
A road sample. As usual, the tough parts weren't caught on camera. It was relatively challenging terrain. In DualsportBC terms, I'd give it a C+ or B- trail rating.
These guys were awesome. Little CT70s (one a '93, the other a '74) poking around the desert. The older one was having troubles with the points ignition. They kept on getting contaminated.
Traveler headed to Death Valley.
Behemoths of the low desert. The west end of the valley is filled with these hulking masses. I'm always mystified by how these harness the wind. And I also wonder how quick the wing tips are moving at full speed.
Anyway, that's it for now. More riding tomorrow! And the next day... And the next day... I'm still trying to comprehend this.
Two wheels and half a brain.
