Oh, then that means your bike is bent. Hope it was low speed.

Here are a few more from sunday...

Parked the Raptor at Silverwood dam, then a chilling pavement run around to the east side of the Mojave River.

Climbing into the hills above Hesperia


Breaking trail around an impass


Hillclimbs into the sun were tough


Can we take a break now? Please!


Lots of ups and downs


Spot the Nowwhat and win a prize


Nasty, rocky, off-camber descent


Some strange critters lurking in the bushes out here








Starting down to Devil's Hole




Feeling like fall at the bottom


Easy crossing, not much water


Blasted forest service roads over to Deep Creek crossing, jeep trail up to Crab Flats, and on up to Green Valley Lake.
No pics

End of the trail up near Crafts Peak
Looking west... Lake Arrowhead and Angeles Crest in the distance


Little bit of single-trak that didn't go anywhere


Fall colors tour on Hwy18





Time for and


Apparently I forgot about my camera after lunch. No more pics.
Ended up on Pilot Rock (2N33) pretty much all the way back down to the truck.

Looks like a nice ride on a great day ... I did a lot of that same ride a couple months ago on my GSA and made the mistake of posting about it. Would have thought the world was coming to an end because I took my big bike over that run into Devil's Hole.

Hey, thats awesome
How did you like the single-trak out around Juniper Flats?
Which way did you go through Devil's Hole?
Which way through Deep Creek / Dishpan?
Any pics?
