Gear cleaned....Gun Cleaned...Bike ummm dirty, its gonna have to wait....


Great time...Sorry for your troubles Joel...you of all people deserve a carefee ride...

The ride was novel in that I rarely do the loop backwards...made for a newish ride...and mostly big bikes came today so I got home relatively dust free ....

Longer D.... the range takes some getting use to....you should have seen the guy that was next to TBarstow and me...first time and he was shooting a 12 gauge shaking like he was going to have a heart attack....

200 rounds though the USP...good times....

I don't think there were any pics of the LC8 and the 1150 on the ground so it must not have happened....

Every time I threatened to tow Joel "suddenly" his bike started working again

I'm beginning to think he don't trust my bike haulin skillz.

I would like it on the record that I rode a decent amount of dirt and dinnet crash. I think that's like twice which I think is a record and I should get an award or somthin.

Anyway, I had fun riding by myself mostly today. I did blow the doors of a guy on a crotch rocket coming down Tijunga. He really sucked... parking it in the corners. IT was funny watching him cus he was really pivoting his body, hanging off the bike into the corners @ like 45. You could tell he was PISSED when he looked back and saw me right there.

Tell me again why I want a carbed bike instead of EFI For me the puddle under the bike would have been too tempting and

Made it home after a great ride and some decent shooting. Nowhat had the shot of the day that I couldn't duplicate, 150 yard with a .45 to hit a triangle that was maybe 8" in height?

Downloading the video now, I'll get it compressed and posted later.

Joel - next time will be better. Now go use you health insurance and get fixed up.

then while xymotic and i tried to catch up with the rest, i slid on a curve with a negative camber. my clothes and armor are in several pieces, time to see the ups girls again....

I hope you're not seriously broken and that it's only the ATGATT......

then bike won't start, gas pouring out from the carb. after an hour, i got it figured, the drain screw on the bowl became loose and allowing the gas to flow through. Time to rebuild the carb or sell me the bike

caught up with everyone at the range.

good day, it made a mechanic out of me....
I really hope you're OK... sounded like a fine time, at least everyone one was armed and ready....
