after the sand nap...what about a taste of mud....


tom was thinking that i'm a real masterpiece....



i rolled down the hill and landed on this cactus....



damned cactus...truly an invasive specie...



have to show blood to lose my nOOby status.......




where was this road when i needed one...




or next time i come out here...it will be a small bike



we made it to the palace station



there was this preserved cabin




i got a souvenir to bring home....




this gs rider was amazing; not a big guy, just pure skill



from what i heard, this rider did the A-loop....



jim's now convinced the 525 is a small bike...



that guy knows how to ride




in spite of the several crashes (pilot error), the 640 is an awesome bike. got me to many places and for sure more in the future.....

Joel, needing a smaller bike seems to be your motto lately. I see in your future a ktm 450 exc with the giant loop mojavi bag holding all your goodies. Xr 400 is not a small bike.

the 450 i agree makes me but for now, need to put together the 540 and see what happens.


tim aka hilslammer rides one and he finds the 450exc more controllable and smoother than the 525.

Joel, Help a brudda out. I need a bigger bike. Sell me your beatup Orange Koolaide cheap and then you can buy the 450. We both will be happy.

Here at Cedars-Sinai. Tried uploading photo but no luck. Will post it later. First time I've seen Vernon not moving around. They must have him tied down. He's doing pretty good after 7 hours of surgery. Fused c5, c6 and c7. One was shattered. Had to open him up front and back. Had several complications but had a great surgeon.
