not so much here in cal, the 1/4 wet suit and lead weights take the fun out of it, unless viz is 40 feet or more and the fish are no bigger than my thigh...

used to dive every other weekend and year round. been out of shape and need to get re-certified.

Cano Island should be on every scuba head's bucket list.
Going down in July

jmt, thanks for the linky. costa rica is awesome, both on land and in water.

so much to do and see, not enough time. a little better off now that we get 4 weeks of vacation/year + 10 holidays. yeah, this year, planning to use all of them to ride baja, ut, az, or and nv.


when is the next ride? i heard big bear is prime now.

I didn't want to post it earlier. Waiting for Lior to reveal it. He picked it up yesterday from us (Del Amo Motorsports). It is one gorgeous bike. I am working on the paperwork for the last one we have in stock. :) so don't even think about it. Hahahahhaa

That 990 would look good on a Grand canyon ride.

So here's the story ....

I was heading to Kernville Friday night after work, to attend WARPED. Managed to leave the house by 6:15, gas in Mojave at 8:00. Heading north on the 14 just past Redrock-Randsberg Rd. I came up a hill and there was a truck, a big rig, making a u-turn on the road in front of me. I didn't even immediately register what I was seeing, what I saw was the reflector tape along the trailer. I went grabbed all the brake I could, slowed enough and cleared the truck, but lost control of the bike, and went down in the right side traffic lane. Think it took a minute, but I got to my feet, was trying to figure out how I'd get the bike up, when I realized there was traffic coming. They weren't able to see the bike as they got to the top of the hill in much time to avoid the bike, most of them managed to miss it, but one car hit the bike. I know for sure the rear wheel is broken, don't really know how much other damage. The family picked me up, and I went on to attend the rally, didn't get there till Saturday morning, though.
I seem to be entirely unhurt, except for a few more that my usual aches and pains.

Glad you're OK Cathy. The bike can be replaced and the newer wee-stroms are much better looking than older models.
