That's pretty JP. Be sure to post pics as the colors change. The yellows mixed in with purple and greens make for lovely pics.
Hope you heal up soon.

Bummer JP, heal up fast.... I was watching for you when I passed through Ludlow on Saturday, but it sounds like you didn't make it there. Will you be ready for DEVA DAYS?

Well... Got a hall pass for riding saturday... But maybe I'll go for some road since the local dirt situation sounds wet and nasty not to mention the number of folks on crutches or with limbs in slings is alarmingly high at the moment.

Tempted to find a 990 for sale and go for a test ride.

Ya ... I know they got one ... But its $6000 over my budget. There is one down south that is a little more realistic and I might be able to afford in spring. I know it may not be there in four months... But then again it might. I have managed to get some smoking deals on vehicles in the past by looking months in advance then coming back in later when it is still collecting dust on a showroom floor :p

Puke Another BV story

JP wrote"LA B 2 V was slightly eventful for me this year.....only made it 3 hours into the ride before I crashed. I'm not sure exactly what happened but I high sided & then my bike landed on my foot. That was in cal city where the closest hospitals or medical facilities were Ridgecrest or Tehachapi....I opted for Barstow where I had a room for the night & could get help from the D-37 people.

Got to Barstow & got a ride to the urgent care & then the imaging place, had my results back before 5...fractured 3rd metatarsal, but no breaks.....had my brother drive to Barstow Friday night then left home sat morning....I have now officially joined the injured list.....but not for too long I hope "

I pitted for my buddy Ken from Colorado. He took the hard route to Ludlow.3 hours in, just before Ludlow, in an easy part of the course, he looked at a freight train going by, hit a rock and high-sided doing about 35.. Got a call from his riding buddies to come pick up him and his bike. Turned around and got him and his bike in Ludlow. Loaded bike and helped him peel off his gear. Took him to ER in Vegas. He was there all afternoon. Broke collarbone, 3 ribs, and chipped scapula. Hung around with him until today and he went home to Denver with his wife. Got taped and a sling and pain meds. He will be off work 5 weeks..

Eh? Lab2v 2013 ?

I'm starting to wonder if I really want to try to make the 2013 LAB2V ride. Sounds like a lot of carnage this year.

LA-B to V

Well what an experience that was. Started with JP, but did not end with him. As you herd that brave young man broke his foot just after the first check point, My brother and I got him put back on his bike and to the highway and rode him into Cal city where there is little med. facilities. He rode on to Barstow while we road the hwy to Ransburg and stated the course again there. We got to Barstow aroung 5p.m. and had dinner with the fallen warrior.

Sat. a.m. we started at 6 a.m. and made it to Baker around 2 p.m.. due to time we hoped a ride into Vegas and called it good. We had flat tiers , crashes and we were lost due to our navigater having a broken foot and out of commission. We had a great time and am going again next year for sure. Our challange was mostly navagation and staying on course. We got pretty good at it on Sat but Friday was pretty harry.

All and all a great fun ride and am in for the next one.... Carnage, ya but if you ride slow and steady you will be fine.
