I had that problem once. it turned out to be a neck thing, go to a chiropractor.
I don’t have the name of the guy that straightened me out but if you send me a PM and I will get it to you

Ron, if you decide to see a chiropractor, you met a good one in Crested Butte year before last! Local guy and a rider too!

We all met at the Morning Star Grocery at 10:00 and headed south to Manzano then up FR422.
I can remember bikes but not too good with people:
SV650-mod
KTM990
KTM690
GS1150
Tiger 800
KLR650
TE610

Intersection of FR422 and FR522


South end of FR522



South on FR522 near hiway60


Turned west at hiway 60 for about 3 miles and onto the WSMR roads.

Saw some hoses in the coral, looked wild and not used to people.


Headed west towards Socorro and into Lemitar for gas.








It was about 4:00 by the time we got to Lemitar so we slabbed home on I25 but not before the Tiger tire decided it had enough for the day. A rescue effort was arranged from home base and we finished up the ride way after dark. I' still scared of the dark!

Hope you can get your vids uploaded. I'd like to see more of the ride.

I have a few pictures and some GoPro video to process. I may need to help getting it posted though.

Thanks for hanging out after the tire/tube finally gave up the ghost gents!

Hope everyone made it home to loved ones safe.

The meet up as well as the sickest bike ever..... Hint: It's white and it's not the Johnny on the spot.


Empedrado or Jim as I like to call him.



Stack Roach on his Triump 800XC w/full luggage. He was headed down to Baja immediately after our ride for the winter....



1150GS guy (I suck with names) and Ditch on the Husky



I took 2 other pics but they are no where to be found on my phone, operator error I'm sure.

This ride was great and exactly the type of ride I want to be on. Thanks elgato gordo for leading it was good meeting you. I am interested in any rides you plan in the future so please keep me in mind.

I will PM you the part # for the fender I was talking about. Thanks again! Ron

I've been putting off doing anything about it but I've got the same pain with little to no improvement for 3 weeks now so I need to look into it. Thanks for the advice.
