Hate you for what? I must have missed something.

Put the float in upside down?.....forgot to put the needle back in??, filled up the tank with diesel instead of unleaded??? back in high school you met up with a girl for a one night stand but forgot the orange safety cones & the water buffalo inadvertently setting into motion a chain of events through time that all led up to you having a carb problem with your motorcycle????

No much worse - I made commitments to ride that weekend. I really screwed the pooch, I thought DVDaze was the weekend of the 19th-21st. Damnit.

An asshole would pick what he wanted to do more and bail on the less attractive offer with no consideration to prior commitments.

Thanks Layne - but I still feel dirty.

Yall have fun, really wish I could be in two places at once.

The upside is there is a 4.9 gallon desert tank that is available to demo for the weekend for Justin with no commitment to buy. It even matches his bike color if he want to give it a try. Even better if he decides to keep it, I will part with it for the low low price of $100.

JP call me ... you know you want it.

The weather looks good for tomorrow's ride.
Sequoia national forest Norte. Maybe some Sierra NF too.

Justin, still on for tomorrow at 9:30? Anyone else?
Clingan's junction is the place.

Wicked nice and chilly!

Brrrrrrrr is right. It was 18 degrees when we pulled into China Peak, and that was at 1:00pm!
Your pictures don't look much warmer.

Hope it is warmer at DV.

Sorry I bailed on the ride Perry, I just figured I would be doing much more freezing my ass off than I would be dirt riding.

.....All ready for DV Daze in 2 weeks

now we know, when there's snow, go in via Trimmer Springs, stay below it. It was freezing cold that day.
