Pablo's Ride report...

So I have been looking forward to this ride for about 2 months & boy was I happy when the day came to load up the pig(DR650) & set off for another adventure.

I left Thursday night about 7PM from Sherman Oaks to Lake Arrowhead with my new front sproket & new rear Dunlop 606- yeah. What a difference with the new one tooth less sprocket on the FWY. The engine is now working to maintain indicated 70mph. I saw that Rich carries both the 14 tooth & the 15 tooth sprocket just for that reason & swaps them out as needed... I think I will do the same from here on out.Attachment 167934

Help!

Adding more than one photo to a ride report!!!
After attaching a photo file, "it" tells me That is the max amount of photos that I can load.
What should I do to be able to load more photos so that I can complete my ride report???

All you can do is submit one less... or break the report in two. Either of those options kinda suck

But it's all good....we just started the adventure a little sooner than later. I believe this is the 2nd trip I've saved Don by carrying a spare rear tube!...not to mention replacing his DR350 broken clutch cable with my DR650 spare. Thanks to Mole and the team for rigging it to fit his bike! Wonderful job guys! Thanks to Pablo for the water purification at the creek...boy was the weather HOT! Thanks to Joel for allowing me a place to pitch my tent...thanks to John for setting up the tacos!...those were delicious! Thanks to Steve for putting this together and a BIG thanks to Luis (Sito) for helping out retrieve Don's bike and repairing his rear flat. Hey Pablo...I saw you bounce off the mountain biker when we got to the top of Clarke's grade...that was too funny! The road is a slight up hill which curves to the right...there's a mtn biker stopped on the left looking behind him up the hill...out of nowhere comes this mtn biker around the corner at the same time Pablo (espi) is and they kind of bounce off each other...the mountain biker looks stunned for a second and Pablo looks the guy up and down, and takes off! It was hilarious! Joel and I attempted to take Cleghorn Rd to the 15 but somehow got on the wrong trail (2n39) and ended up taking 30 miles of dirt & rocks down to the backside of San Bernardino....it was sooooooo f-ing hot I felt like passing out. We stopped into Burger King for lunch and to cool down with their air conditioning.

Thanks a million guys for the genuine camaraderie...you guys rock!

I'm going to be putting a Kennedy Meadows trip together for either July or August...need to take a poll. I'll post the link to the thread in a few minutes. Take care guys and see you all next time! Keep the rubber side down!

Hey Bob, it only took you 2 minutes to decide!



I'm sure the rest can do quicker, but their response will be "I'm OUT"!



Never been on this trail and I'm very interested.

I have a feeling this one is not going to be a V-strom approved trail. I may have to appropriate another bike by then.

Great to see you again Luke. Pretty crazy that we met last year in Julian when I stopped for fuel and then we ran into each other again at the Big Bear Ride.

Small world...
