Humbling?....you were a beast.....Riddler was the hill climb champ....and you made the Berg fly..........

That was some crazy dirt....deep and soft with rocks and crust....can't wait to go back........new rear tire already ordered....

Thanks for making the video Tony, maybe I'll switch my name to the trench digger. I was actually the clown doing the slalom course not Tom.

Thanks everyone! Feels good to post a ride RR/video before the next ride occurs. I still have 10+ videos to do but am waiting until I get up to speed on Premiere CS6, a huge learning curve from iMovie.
Rrugger,
We really miss you. My camera misses you too.
Hopefully you will join us one of these days.

That looks like Fort Irwin area north and west of Calico.

There are some fun routes and things to see in Calico as well, some good shooting areas out Mule Canyon, and Bismark Mine is fun to crawl through. It's about a half mile long. In one section you have to crawl thru on your elbows, but it comes out the other side. Kinda spooky.

I have not ridden the Ft. Irwin area but George Erl (Uptite) use to go out there all the time, would never tell anyone where it was...super secret!

Awesome video, Toast. I always enjoy watching these. The desire to go riding after watching is overpowering!

yeah nice vid, props. if premier vexes you get on final cut, it's worthwhile to learn.

i am wondering on the staging area as well. please share unless, well, you don't want to.

also, is this an open riding area or were you following marked 'trails'?

we were following existing trails, although some of them were pretty obscure and barely visible, as it had rained there recently.

You will not be disappointed with a Beta RS. They are SWEET!

The 1st GE photo Tony posted shows where they rode. The last time I rode that area I don't recall seeing any trails as "marked". But that was 10-12 years ago, so I've slept a few times since them.
