I'm not sure.. You guys decide. I might have to show up late or bail early.... Have a lot of court work to get ready.

I'm here! I got everything unpacked today, started up the DRZ and it won't idle for some reason.Will I have to adjust the idle mixture for the altitude change?
Fuel injection is just so much smarter!
May have to take the big bike.

I adjusted the idle mixture a little richer and the DRZ runs good. We'll call it an altitude adjustment.
Give us a meeting point (cross street) and we'll meet you there. 239-216-205O

Same number. No android. My phone barely works as a phone. We may be hungry by then as well. Perhaps a little grub n' suds will be in order before we head to the Squares.

i had fun today guys but man am i sore now. i think i pulled something in my back and neck. i really need to start riding more. after riding Tommy's bike i learned i need different tires in a bad way (or XRL ). today was ridiculous, i was fighting the bike the whole time.

Dave, sorry we missed you. we were lost in the north end of the trails. it was pretty fun though and i would really like to explore the trails up that way again soon.

here's some photos i took and a link to the Sphere photo.

the group waiting for Steve:






us BS'ing around at the camp site:



The KLX leaning up against a tree looking all sexy



some people on horses showed up. i guess we were on horse trails. we walked the bikes out and then started the engines so not to spook the horses.

horses drinking water:


as much as i'd like to say that no animals were harmed during out shenanigans today, that's not the case.



and the Sphere photo... next time i'll ask you guys to stand behind me while i take the photo and i'll take more.

it was a beautiful day out today:
