Sorry I didn't make it.. I had all the best intentions and just needed to do a lil TLC after Vegas..
I did have a brilliant way to do it though.. Stuck it in the elevators at my loft. Brought it up to the seventh floor put on a movie and went to town..

hahahahaha

I guess I didn't take my photographer pills this morning.

There is a new addition to Rowher now. Considering how broke all of our government agencies are, I was surprised to see the boulder field that was being built for trials bikes and possibly rock crawlers.





This guy was fun to watch.













Earl



Isaac





Duy



Head pucker



Rock Inn was great, as usual

Picture???
did they break off sub surface, flush or is there anything sticking out

if you want to bring it by my house Monday
I can help you get them out by welding a nut to them and just take them out with a wrench

Working night shifts tonight & tommorow night get home 7 a.m.

Nov 27 last Saturday - Nowwhat - Ruugger - Toast

Joel,
You surely set the standard for performing same day ride reports. I am still working on the KOTW video, hope to have it ready this Friday.

Here is last Saturday's Ride Report.

Anyway, it was a cold Thanksgiving weekend Saturday morning and we were set to meet Ruugger at Mikes Cafe in Mojave for the usual fare.



Ruugger had already ordered, some weird stuff that I don't suggest eating before a ride. Pepper covered cottage cheese with salsa....more on this later.


Here is a picture of the jacket in its perfect condition.


2 minutes later Ruugger was approaching Nowwhats waiting spot on the hill climb and Ruugger rides ride off the edge in front of him. Nowwhat comes back down the hill to get me, I was worried for our friend.


Nowwhat and I hiked up to help Ruugger's bruised KTM down the hillside.
The rider fared pretty well under the circumstances, bike.....eh

Nowwhat pointing out how lucky Ruugger really was...

Ruugger left part of his subframe on the hillside, and left us to start the ride without him. DNS


Then it was 2, Nowwhat sporting some new body protection items



Trails were nice, but no chocolate cake and yes I had to clean the air filter. For some reason rain clouds don't make there way here when it rains everywhere else.


Oh, and I had the camera in a speed holster. We made it up this hill pretty easy considering it was looser than usual.


Then the caravans ....

Then we came to his hill that I had a tough time making it up. 3rd attempt was a charm, Nowwhat made it up first try.

I couldn't get traction on this stuff to get a run at the little rock face so I rolled down another 15 yards.


2 minutes later you HAVE to climb this one. It was fun, second try success.

Then we are off to Randsberg


Nowwhat stands this thing straight up...

Then we spent $17 on 2 "bowls" of chili, 1 hot dog, 1 power bar and 1 small Gatorade. Chili was good though.



I used to have a brochure of this bike in my school notebook...


Well then we hit some of this and headed back to the truck, all radars on full alert.


Video just uploaded, 8 min

Nice work Tony That rocky canyon looked pretty mean this time around. If I continued on I probably would have knocked all the orange off my bike.

How awesome is this picture taken by MiddleAgedMissile Saturday!!!



I was probably pretty easy to photograph since I was so slow. I crashed 3x. Same crash every time, lost the front in loamy soil. Hit/ran over/ jumped the same bush 3x too. (I never learn I guess)

But, I SURVIVED, I think I was on the biggest bike there, and I wasn't dead last (by 1) so whooohooo!! If the Catalina GP goes again, it's seriously not to be missed, one of the greatest days I've ever had.
