We rode up to Nukes yesterday for breakfast and the mtns on UBT were looking great! Everything is much greener than what it looked like a few months ago!

So, the forest is making a slow, but nice come back!

you know the jimmy school is paying off. in the past, i always look for the easiet and cleanest line, but yesterday i chose the shitty sections and ruts. stood on the pegs most of the time, was less tired and relaxed. i don't think it's the bike, it's all about the rider......

the xr is getting electrified soon...the last major part needed came in last week. though i have to get the exc together first before i take this one apart. the exc needs is a new paint job and hopefully i will be able to find the parts that are stored in different places...

did somebody say my name?

I don't usually put up RRs but Joel thinks I don't ride!!! Did almost 200 today on my new husky!!

Ore vista- Big T
To forest to upper big T
to ACH where I was stopped for an airlift.
Sport bike down. guy was OK from what I heard, but still lifted him out





To Newcombs for pulled pork sammy
(sorry no before shot...I was hungry)



then to wrightwood for gas
back track a touch to Velyermo rd
to fort tejon rd
to soldad cyn
to sand canyon
to airport (side trip to whiteman)
to home

It is amazing how beautiful the flowers and green is coming back. Its sad for you I never stopped to take a photo of it! Thats probably why I don't do RRs!

Whew...I really like my new (to me) husky!!!
Ouch...My butt hates that seat!!!!!

Sheriff and CHP flights are usually no charge.
I'm sure this will change if it hasn't already.
Mercy Air flights are usually near $20,000.

no gate, no sign, no comment...


just guessing.... , since lynx was graded to a super smooth dirt road, me think they're making it accessible to the property owners

we'll just have to wait for an official public release.....

I'm really glad to see the progress, I thought the place was gone for years.

So where are the towers in Joel's picture? Did they have to take them down or are they just not visible? It looks like the visibility is pretty good otherwise.

Hey Eric! Was good meeting you on the "grocery trail" the other evening, I think we managed to chat away a good hour in aisle 5

What else is new, it's squid season now!

I have a blast on my 610SM! Did you retune the suspension for your weight and riding style? Putting in 5 wt fork oil and resetting the preload on the shock makes a huge difference in the handling.

Yep, that seat is thin!
