All those parameters must have been against us on the last day because we all ran out of gas before getting back to the motel. I think that leg was only about 150 miles, including our assorted unplanned excursions. The only thing that prevented the coyotes from eating us that evening was the emergency 1 gallon bottle on my rear rack. We split that 3 ways and limped in on fumes (passing that gutted dead cow on the way)!

A few of us were given the amazing opportunity to play on Hogwild's Tulipless trails. Its been unquestionably a fantastic couple of days. Its really cool to ride with these guys again, and get to know everybody better. Lots and lots of highlights for me, not the least of which I got to team up with Ned for a good bunch of miles. And with super challenging navigation. Challenging for me, anyway. And the Tracks! Wow...



























Thanks Scott!

Yes, a great time with a great gang. Entries and sponsors of the postponed Rally Diabol%@&* were invited to join me for some fun to tide them over for a few months. Thanks Dave, Ned, Phil, Rick, Bob, Matthew, Jason, Chris, Tony, Antonio and Michael for taking me up on the offer. We did Stage 16, Stage 23, and Stage 13, in that order. The photos look great!

I know, I was driving!!!

Here are some more pics of the bike that I was testing for Dakar 2015. And a pic of my brothers nasty off. He was riding off-road for the first time and we dragged him straight into the dunes. He found the "Mini Grand Canyon".

Dave, your brother? looks bit like Rubby Gordon in that photo.



You should consider using him for marketing RMS 'speed' bikes

Nope, not my brother. That's Rick from Canada.

A month has passed since I had the great pleasure of riding Scott Whitney's "Grand Rally".

It was a truly epic experience: The scenery was beyond description, the terrain and route some of the best riding I've ever done, the camaraderie of fellow riders fantastic, and the navigation very challenging (wtf does left from very faint road to very, very faint road mean?! I learned to love CAP headings. ; ).

I'm slowly crunching the videos, so watch this space!

Cheers!

Matthew Glade
