for the 2nd time, we caught up with the group in front of us or is this the prelude to the 2013 ktm dv rally....



definitely there is no shortage of rocks in this place



out of no where, came this giant handing tom his tire



roy could not resist and gave tom some help



after tom pinched the first tube, jon jumped in



biggie patiently waiting



vern meantime is providing entertainment



we met this traveller from france - tristan and his gf; which we invited to come to the camp on saturday



these guys are in for the long haul



safe ride and we'll see you at the festivity

Street boots + Dirt riding = Hospital visit....


Heal fast Motok.....

In true Uber n00b fashion I go to get my gear out Friday am and *$#!*#$*%(^%^(%^(! I forgot my boots. I ask around but you PPs have small feet. Off to Ridgecrest I go, 140 miles in the truck, 1 pair of 13's. Thankfully they were only Tech 3's not something more expensive.

On the plus side, when I go to KM again and soak my boots on the first days ride, I'll have a spare dry pair for the following day.

Good point there, Bob! Wet boots/feet is the worst!

Great RR's everyone! Keep 'em coming!

Get a heat gun and tub of snow seal.

Apply heat rub in repeat.

I did this to mine and they are still water proof after 5 years of riding. I only reapplied for the first time this year.

It soaks into the threads and seams really makes the boot truly water proof.

How do you keep the water from coming in over the top?

You bastards! I'm the guy in the Mercedes that ran into you at Goler Wash, the cabins and then Furnance Creek.

I must admit I was a little jealous seeing you riding through the valley. I wish I had a smaller bike now.

Cheers!
Tom

jnyrav, my riding partner



towards wildrose and the beautiful sky



we passed these guys on their small but cool bikes









nice road to the charcoal kilns



up to the mahogany flats



the gate was locked and hiking 7 miles at high altitude will kill me...



we stopped at the kilns on the way down



poked our heads inside



this building is big even from the inside



fellow advriders bill and tim



soon leo aka libratrades join us; that berg has only 80 miles



on our way to aguereberry point

i hope you enjoyed the satellite radio and a/c while going up goler.......
