What gave that away, the blinker light cover?

I was pretty happy to put this part behind us.

A few future pics

Dr. Rock is going to be a bit---------after talking to him I realized just what a mess he's in after the hurricane.

So I'm going to lay low for a while until he has time to catch up.

But here's a few pics of what's coming up.









What is going on here ???

How many people did it take to get that GS back on two wheels?

SoosCreek Crashes...

Oh sure, pick on the short, fat, bald, old, guy with the Hi Viz and his big pig of a bike!

BTW, Dr. Rock was out of "No Hassle Tassels" so I had to fend on my own...I was doomed from the start!

I think it took at least 3 of us given the situation to pick up the bike the first time. Only 2 of us the second time.

And, it occurred within the last 5 off road miles of the 600-700 that I was going to ride with the Mobius team.

I think the Anti-Tassels gremlins were afraid I was going to get free and clear!

The Rider:


Photo from Copper Canyon earlier in the year

The Bike:


Photo from Yellowstone earlier on that trip before meeting up with Mobius 10

I never had any intention of trying to ride through deep sand with that bike and my skills...but sometimes you end up where you end up.

It was a great 3-4 days with Mobius 10!

Dave, Francine, Mark (BIGDOG), Scott( DINGWEEDS) and Dave (MTRIDER16) were fun to ride with and learn from.

Also, I am from Seattle area, not Oregon, but I realize nobody east of the Mississippi cares....

Steve

Soos,

not trying to beat up for crashing in the sand. That can happen to any bike of any size. You're right that sometimes you end up where your end up and have to make do with what ya got. I just wondered how hard it was to pick that monster up.
