86d4life on the big 990 had no problems with the Scorps in the sand....I had one off in the sand with the Sahara's...but it was me not the tires...the Scorps did let go 3 or so times in the mud and snow...but 86d was drifting when it happened... ...

Wheeldog has a fledgling decal business... he was nice enough to make a stack of decals to hand out!

I just got home a bit ago... actually had to ride straight in to work to get some stuff done. I've got over 600 pictures to sort through & edit... I am sure there are some great ones.

Thanks Tom (RBA) for putting this together... the memories of the inmate I rode with and the places we rode will last for a long time.

Will post pics & stories soon!

Redbull,
Thanks a bunch for putting this trip together. It was a great few days in the n00b vaLLey. With that adventure rig you have (FJ w/ BFGs, cooler full of RedBull and X bike on the back) you can go anywhere and look good doing it.

Jamin does just that on his NX250. Dude is unstoppable. Takes amazing photos as well.


pics uploading....

thanks for the kind words everyone! I'm just glad you all enjoyed yourselves.

A big thanks to Wheeldog (aka - Roger) for making those stickers. I still have a few left in case anyone wants one.

OK, back to our show....

As the group broke into 4 or 5 subgroups, I headed straight for Furnace Creek to secure a campsite. The issue was the fact that we intended to camp in Echo canyon but with the risk of rains and the low temps we decided it was better to stay at a lower elevation and in the open.

On the way up to Furnace Creek I took a few more pics.

Hey Doghouse, good to hear your home and enjoyed the trip.

On the way to the Pinnacles, the carnage began. This is DaveBro our fearless leader. Broken clutch lever and derailed chain (one reason I H8chains!)



Spafxer saved his bike but ended up in the bush!


It was tough, the sand was about 8 inches deep! My 640A decided to take the usual nap in the soft sand. A full tank of gas 6.5 gal and 50 lbs of shit, impossible for me to get it up.



Jamin survived and the beautiful blue sky awaits for the next one.

Big thanks to Redbull Addict for setting this up! What a blast.
Didn't get to meet everyone, but it was cool to put names to faces for the ones I did meet.
Redbull Addict, nice shots - you're a helluva photographer

The Pinnacles finally!




"No sign of the rest of the group" Jim reported. Then we replied, "Those BYATCHES abandoned us!"
