This nOOb wants to thank everyone for the great ride today. Nice to meet you guys even if I can't remember all your names. A big thanks to Joel (the resident photographer) for being on the spot to capture the action. Without him I might have forgotten about my lack of steering in soft sand. It was he and Cathy that came to my rescue and got me "unstuck" ......a BIG thank you. Hope to do it again soon.

Yes, today was great, look forward to doing again. Next time I'll try to have some real tires on my bike though.

still sore from yesterday's. hope everyone made it home and had fun.

the weather was a little cold, low 60s, but we had our jackets on. frozen fingers a little bit at the start of the ride.

it was a big group, good mix of experts and nOObs. thanks guys for waiting for us nOObs. we left at 8 am and ended around 2 pm and then rode down on angeles crest on the way home.

we're lucky to get rewarded with a fun twisty pavement ride after a day of riding in the dirt. including the ride up on little t, we get to use the full tire (chicken strips) on our rides.

klr riders....gary and woody



lkn4drt brought the mighty 950




chopchop rob had a bad start....a flat tire, which he fixed quickly. we left him with someother guys, and they were able to catch us up at bpl. i don't think he missed the centerstand that he chopped off




dannyg breakfast, piece of pastry and redbull riding an xchallenge, you need to carry that red msr bottle in your backpack.

breaktime at the start of sito's trail
