Duner, you missed a good one. Pritchett canyon following Mike Brown and other pros we got held up at the first staircase. Some Canadians shamed us into continuing with them, glad we did, learned a lot that day.

Hey Tom, I have your footage in my memory stick. Do you need it or did you make a copy? And do you have my battery?

Great pics and love riding that area... I always find it funny the more i ride with buddies who have 1200GS bikes how much they stop to help each other thru stuff like that... one of my friends says he wont ride with any group less than 3 riders so they can help each other pickup their bikes or get thru stuff... i thought those bikes were made to power thru anything... lol

Your buddy needs to hit the weight room ... if the big GS's 110 HP can't "power" through something like that wash out, I typically get off and carry it over my shoulder.

Taste of Dakar

Nancy from AltRider here-- I wanted to inform you all that I just got off the phone with Jimmy Lewis and wanted to update you guys that the official date for Taste of Dakar 2013 will be February 22-24 located on the border of Nevada and California near Death Valley. Registration is not open yet but we wanted you to pencil us in on your riding Calendar. I'm including it on this thread since it would be a close ride from LA

Taste of Dakar is an all-inclusive adventure weekend with 2 nights camping, all meals and beverages (beer!) provided, nightly entertainment and a self led GPS ride created by Jimmy Lewis himself. Last year was epic and this year we're including more training with the option of taking Jimmy Lewis's Off Road Academy for a discount right before our ride.

Watch the video to find out more:
