The 8 miles of whoops is the main reason I love the Mojave Trail. Without those it's nothing

i was railing the corners and in the groove (also literally). it was a 2-track (jeep track) and berm on the outside. really, once you're in, you're in or crossover to the other track but you have to get ride across the tall mound of sand which is trouble. the branch was sticking partly on my line and hit it at 20 - 30 mph. didn't really get hurt due to the soft sand and body protection. sometime.....it pays to be slow....

the 3 of us were committed to ride up and take the whoops. after breaking the rear fender, told todd and lior that i want to do it, BUT my duct tape repair will not hold up .....

i like the power line too.

My little CAR took place in Arizona.

Got on the bike , got on the 10 and got to south/east Az by dark. First motel was a rathole, but losts my lights due to bad contacts in my ignition switch so the cop that followed me off the fwy said "this as far as your going tonight". Sounded good to me I was fried from rad-a-tad-tad ing on the 640 for 340 miles.

Next morning made it to Triangle T Ranch for http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=844407
Nice place!


This place was a far cry from the meth/motel the night before

You can camp on the ranch as well

Next day did a group ride with the DezertDazes group, the highlights were a mountain range with water crossings near the New Mexico boarder and a long graded road into Tombstone with alot of hwy in between oh and a power line road that me and one other imate took at the end of the day neither of us sure it came out on the otherside and me with no headlight. Sometimes things just workout. Trail was awsome and back to ranch by dark.


Ranch Saloon


Ian (guy on the left) is get'n an adventure school up and running so we scouted a few trail to loop together.

Mess Hall

Running my little engine that could for 2 days at 4800 rpm is starting to have its effect. Cooked right through the carbofiber bracket. SS wire is golden on the trail.

Nope bought it new in 07 . Sometimes I think of gett'n rid of it but they are Pure adventure bikes! Lot of fun and do everything fairly well. The 990 has a little issue.

Thanks Rich. Solo rides due have the allure, but Death Valley Noobs is awsome. See you there! First I need to tighten everything from valves to throttle cables to tail pipes to mising fairing bolts.

since i didn't get much riding at the dvnr2013, found a fix here at the local riding areas, 30 minutes away.

at 7:30am



only zach and i on the trail that morning






brunch at the rock inn



zach prefers lunch



rruuger finally showed up



strange, we didn't really see lots of rider at all considering this is a saturday












by 3pm, i was home. it was a short day but happy to get some 60 dirt miles....
