This may be the last picture of the day but it wasn't the end of my day. My little ride soon became a mini adventure preceding my planned adventure to Colorado. Just above the Western States Trail and back onto trail 6 again I make my way toward trail 5 when all of a sudden I'm not sure which trail leads back to the staging area. ( it crosses a couple of roads and I got my roads mixed up) I head down a fire road and flag down a truck. He says I need to turn around and go the other way to hit Forest Hill Rd. So I head the opposite direction; looking down at my odometer I realize I don't have much fuel left. Within 30 seconds I'm out of gas. OMG! Time to walk. So I ditch my bike and my gear in the woods and head up the road. Two miles and fifty Hail Marys later I reach Forest Hill Rd. I only walk about 100 yards down the road when all of a sudden my answer comes meandering down the road (but in the opposite direction) I stick my thumb out but he cruises on by. One minute later he's coming back down the road; he stop and asks if I need help. He was camping in the area and recognized me when I road through his camp ground earlier in the day. He just happen to be changing camp sites when he came upon me. He was the only person on the road; it was a Thursday afternoon. To make a long story short; my new friend not only gave me a lift back to my truck ( 5 miles away). He helped me retrieve my motorcycle. That little miracle saved me at least three hours. He went away well fed for his efforts. Another good day!

Very nice.

Glad it worked out ok. I have a co-worker that rides that area, some pictures were familiar, don't think I want to do those trails on my heavy pig of a KLR.

Brought back great memories... Rode Observed Trials for several years. Those small-bore bikes are great when things get tough.
Thanks for the RR & photo's...
