This ride is full of uncertainty, but as long we leave our ego at home and ride at 1/4 throttle....we should be fine....

If ever you see any 640A parts, hang on to them, but the 950 components do well on Ebay!

I ride with my eyes closed half the time anyway. Seeing the trail all the time is over rated.
I'm just happy that it's not going to be so dam hot! It might even get a little chilly! I think this is going to be fun because something different. I'm not worried because I control the throttle, I can go as fast or as slow as i want . I am worried because its going to be way past my bed time! I don't think I have been up passed 12:00 in over 2 years!

For those that will be sleeping while these maniacs are bashing around in the dark, I'll be at the usual 7-11 Osborne exit start point at 7 AM to beat the heat if anyone wants to join. 210 fwy, 2 exits west of Sunland Blvd., 1 block north to light, turn left, see 7-11 on left with 1 or more ADV-types hanging out. We can decide plan of attack there. Noob friendly!

Hey Artboy,

What are you riding tomorrow?

I need some two wheel therapy to clear my head of everything that has been happening lately.
I might make tomorrows ride, I will know at 7:00 a.m in the morning, just don't know what you had in mind. A single cylinder or two cylinder ride(well for me single cylinder or bigger single cylinder).

Full Moon Ride

The weather has been very hot in the past several weeks and riding the same trail all over again become a negative factor to our weekly ride.

So we cooked up with a solution.......................................... ......

A Night and Dinner Ride and found the 18th (yesterday) under a full moon to do the ride.

It didn't take very long for the kids excited again................

It started all here
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=358064


The actual ride was 110 miles, maybe 40 miles of asphalt but mostly twisties and canyons; and the rest was pure dirt. From near sea level we rode up to about 6K feet elevation and down....which we did in 9 hours or so (6:30 PM to 3 AM) without dinner (sorry guys....we'll get it right next time).

We had 8 ADV FFs and 4 more friends joined us on this ride, and we lost the 2 X-Challenge riders Oni and DannyG.

Our trusty trail leader Sito, who we almost lost cuz duh' he was at the 7-11 on Osborne....good we got him to meet us at the correct address





Jim aka Spafxer, a long time riding buddy and rode all the way from Ventura



Bouncing Billy washed his bike for this ride to make it more visible




Lear60man....he has the sweetest bike on street tires




Jim aka tbarstow, he may be for the record, the first to ride the Lynx on a fully laden behemoth GS1150 on street tires in the dark .......




Russel,....from the Rowher Flat days in the peak of my noobiness...come on Rus, you need to come out more often...




Jeff, one of the many orange men



Kenny, Billy's younger bro




Dario,thanks for sweeping the last part of SCD. Your headlight shining my path helped me survived



The rest of the FFs decided to meet at Upper Big T and Rob up in Newcombs Ranch (good decision Rob )



More pics and prickin report next.................
