I peeled off to head for Bullead as the rest of the pack readied themselves for the remainder of the revised track. Ersin just texted me at 9pm that they FINALLY made it back after the fourth flat tire for the day. Long haul. Beautiful day. Should be some interesting RR's. I saw actual video cams!! Oooh!

Ersin, Rich... thanks.

Holy shit.

We decided to do a road ride 2-up, the long way to Palm Desert over the mountains thru Anza, 250 miles, 4hr, 25mins, no flats, no issues. Was about 95 in Palm Desert. Beautiful though. RR coming.

Can't wait to hear about Mojave Trail.

The first bit was solo, then I rode with the group on the Mojave Trail. Hit the highway home solo.

Home safe. Very fun but very tired! . This was quite an adventure! If you ever want to do the Mojave trail you better like sand, lots of sand! Also bring extra tubes

Home..bike unloaded....gear washed...what a ride....

I ran close to 20psi F/R in my tires to Make SURE that I didn't get a flat...then I picked up a 3" nail....bwhahahahahaha...

With a smaller group and no flats today...we ran 190+ miles in 5.5 hours including lunch in Baker...

Groups of 5 or so riders is the key to a ride of this length,.....

beautiful trails....the sand is no problemo on the smaller bikes...Sito did great....
