I like to pretend I got a supermoto sometimes but last night I just wanted to get out of the canyon before it got dark. I got this phobia about hitting a dear. I can't wait until my RD350 is on the road then I can really have some canyon road fun

Word here at work is he was a new guy here in our special effects dept., middle -ager getting back into riding after being off bikes for a long time. That's an all too common scenario. I didn't know him personally.Glad to hear you guys had a good safe ride!

I'm not sure going 90 @ dusk is a better deer avoidence system than just going slow in the dark

But I'm not one to throw stones being in my glass house and all

I love this shot. It would be nice with a better camera/lens. But I still love it.

Agreed nice photo, I like seeing the trail leading off. A bit of photoshop love can go a long way too.

Then you just give them the "Hollywood treatment" but if these guys want to book more modeling jobs they better learn to trow up after every meal.

more pics

after getting skunked on the first trailhead to tule, i was able to go up through this one


just to see there are already at least 5 riders gone up before me...



i love the color of this dirt






looking at the trail i took



nice view and the trail ahead


i was admiring this scenery and all of the sudden....



a bunch of FFs showed up; here's 2 of them. not recognizing me, jm and jason just took off



spafxer i think figured out it was me and stopped; roger saying hi...



roger's butt not really that big, but his 990 didn't show any mercy to the dirt



not to be outdone, spafxer did his own digging too



and they all left me... but good there was no dust!




when i reached the junction...bouncing billy, the most honorable one, was there patienly waiting for me.. .... hey billy, that fuel tank is awfully f*#king BIG..........



looks better from this perspective...also thanks for sweeping..
