Pre ride pics


There was a brush fire on the foothills and the guys looking at it. I hope Tim didn't fill up that GS tank all the way full




Always a welcome sight to see new & regular riders sharing the same ride.

We rode with WOT for about 18 miles in the canyon full of curves. We took the back road Big T to avoid the dangerously notorious Angeles Crest.

Big T and AFH was wide open and the road was perfect.

Getting on AFH


Spafxer must be thinking....these FFs got it made...canyon and dirt riding all in one....




Upper Big T, and like all disciplined school kids, they waited for me




Here comes our trail leader Sito, too fast for my camera


The TransAlp and the GS on the terrain where they are kings







At the bottom of the Lynx trailhead and met dunerat and lepermasiah




The fun and sad parts nex.....................

more pics

Sunset and the 540. This was at about 7:30pm. Even w/ the big tank I ran out of gas twice, once at the end of our ride on the dirt section and then on the 210 fwy on the way home! Thanks to all who donated gas. And it turns out that tall seat isn't as comfortable as I thought

Team Rothmans Honda

This is a cool, very original bike....reminds me of Wayne Gardner....Transalp at speed.

I thought of taking more pics but hard to do it on Lynx and clinging on to my dear life.

Some of the highlights

Tim trying to reinstall his left pannier after he ripped the mount on a gentle drop



Again............


and again..........


I admired Tim, cuz if that's another rider....he would have turned around and call it quits.

Tim did the entire Lynx and the last part in the dark. I'm sure this experience will provide him the ability to handle a big pig in a similar situation next time....


Tim still smiling while Spafxer looking sorry seeing the GS.....




The regular FF crew





The last daylight break, soon darkness will fall while still on Lynx


I was going down on this curve with slick surface and simply tap my front brake....next thing, it's my turn, as always..............next time I will do Lynx........LEAVE THE SAHARAs AT HOME! Sito....you suck and make a lousy photographer.


I notice that Tim converted his side pannier to a top rack.......



Spafxer first time on Lynx is uneventful...or he developed the art of picking the bike up quickly!



The Rothman bike did a digger....




Darkness finall fell.....lepermasiah on his BRP, and unusual to see him wearing a body armor....did he see a vision before the ride




Dunerat did a noble thing...rode as a sweepy for the first time




One FF didn't wait at the junction and all the riders behind him took the wrong turn......

who ever you are.... know the trailtiquette

Poor Kenny, of course the rest of us too were upset



this is what a night ride looks like



The 3 week old SE died on the trail.............. It took us about 30 minutes to get it running and still we didn't know what went wrong........
could it be operator error




Thanks Spafxer, Lear60man, and BouncingBilly for waiting and worrying about us...while the rest of the FFs rode on to Newcombs thinking that they will get dinner.

Beautiful! Nice shot Kena

By the time we reached Newcombs Ranch, the kitchen was closed
but the bar was still open... , this must be the busiest
night after 10 for the bartender.

Hanging out in front of Newcombs






It has been over 3 hours of hard riding and no dinner.....and at 10 PM, this ride sucks!



I am going home...at last



It wasn't a martian, or a gremlin, or a half insect.......it is Rob!



Back on the saddle again for more dirt



Lepermasiah...designated sweepy for the Pacifico run





No action pics, and this one taken at the parking lot at the bottom of Pacifico






The kids love that glowing thingy that you put around your neck, so I bought like 2 dozens and by the time I took it out of the box, most of
them were lit up just from the shaking while on the bike.



I have a suspiscion that AA sent these guys over to ADV for the needed fix



alcohol was a big part of the ride



Rob was demonstrating to Dunerat that in Mars, his bike has ape bars

finally took a digger

Took the first digger last night with the boys,Sito leading and I'm near the back, on the Acton side of whatever trail,med hill climb littered with rocks and the valdez decides in a wall of dust to nail a boulder,this shooting me diagonally off said trail in tank deep pucker bushes ,they bring klr to sudden stop but Billy does the classic flying w over the front and land feet first a few feet in front of my idling klr.thanks Dario for the push seems the mefos aren't tractor tires.On the 8 or so rides with these guys to go down like this was very lucky considering all the saves on every ride.
