Cool Pictures Joel, especially the ones you posted on your Vegas ride in the snow. Looked like a pretty gnarly ride!
Just wanted to say that I had a good time riding with you guys this past Sunday to the Husky Memorial. It was my first time riding with all you guys. I had the black 800GS. My old man is username "MadMAx"
I dont really log on here too much but plan on doing so more often. I would love to ride with you guys more too. Looks like you guys do a lot of really fun trips and know the ropes of all the boss trails to ride.
I rode with Lior quite a few times and he kinda tells me what rides are going on. Anyway, happy holidays to you and safe riding out there.

Ya, MadMax is my Dad. I will tell him you said hi. He has been in town for a little while and we got a few little riding trips lined up pretty soon. He is picking up a new Husky 650 Strada right after Christmas, then we will be riding. That bike looks pretty sweet!

I used to work across the street and the Yard House got a lot of my business back in the day. It's nice to see the pics of my daily commute.

yh, still a great place, the food never disappointed me. the window tables get a nice view of the harbor. a short walk from the convention center makes it also convenient.

i left my stuff under our table and they went after me so i don't go home empty handed.

2013.12.15 Husky and unplanned Full Moon Ride

my 640 wasn't prepped up and could not ride, but glad i went and join the guys on my xr400 geared 15/50...for a 200 mile loop...yikes.

i got to the meetup place just to find out i left my riding pants and i'm going back home. btw, who the heck carries a spare pants when they go riding?......i could not laugh since big todd saved my day.

it proved that the xr400 is not a bad bike at all. i'm loving this bike more than my 525 exc.

at @ 8:30 am, a big group of bikes hanging out at the chevron gas station in pearlblossom



joel, your pant's awfully big for you



great to see ccer and spaniard here on this ride. yeah, it's about time.



a short pavement ride to the trail head



at this point, i bailed out again. my xr starts sputtering and dies. symptom indicates a fuel starvation. i told jim to go ahead and catch up with the group and i will go back to the truck.



i knew the carb is recently rebuilt, have a new fuel petcock, good fuel line and throttle cable working. what else could cause it. after a few minutes, the bike will fire up again. hmmm, could it be a clogged up vent on the fuel cap. lior mentioned to me that he doesn't like my tank vent because of problems a few weeks ago when we did the vegas ride. i pulled it off and started the bike. wow, bike is alive again....but the guys have been gone for at least 20 minutes. wtp, i have the tracks and i ride a honda...what else could go wrong. off i went and chased the PPs.

eventually, i catch them near lake mirage....wohoooo!

how could i miss that bright red jacket



this place is new to me and i like it already



the baja990 is at home in the desert



not sure if that is lake mirage



browneye leading and jim waiting



dirt everywhere







we caught up with rich's group and about to passed them



rob had a flat. thought of sticking around just in case.



didn't take a second to find the culprit ........huh



breaking a bead courtesy of a honda



meanwhile, i parked my beautiful bike in the middle of the road so ersin and his fellow lost riders could spot it. nada so we rolled and hopefully find them on helendale rd.



rich and ben



in less than 30 minutes, rob had another flat...wtp



having used up his spare tube, rob had no other choice. here's ben trying to patch it.



i volunteered to ride up ahead to catch the big group at the next rendevous point. gave my spare rear tube to rob before i left since the patch job didn't work.

waited here and texted ersin


and waited!

after about 15 minutes or so, everyone finally showed up....and with bellies filled...sob!






bill took over the group and led us to his secret route including a gas station we never knew is there.



lior volunteered to sweep...and he saw a lot of me...hahaha



the group waiting for jim, lior and ersin. the klr rider reported that jim may have a flat.



i turned around and confirmed jim had a flat



i went back to the main group and told them about the situation. bill instructed the boys to head out to the petroglyphs where we will meet them. found rob waiting for us.



i used to ride with this rider almost every weekend...8(



the road was pretty nice and we were moving smoothly












got to husky and good to see damado and rich waiting for us












rest in peace kurt and dad







group photo.....less 6 riders



the ride out was fast paced trying to beat the little day light left



the husky ride ends here............................. and the start of the full moon ride....hahaha



it was cold and a long pavement ride back. have to stop here for gas and warm food



it was an epic fun ride. a long day too, 7am to 9pm @ 200 miles on my little poor xr 400,

great job everyone and thanks for coming out as well as looking out for each other.
