Notso heavily loaded as some body's bike...

















Have fun.

If you look real close you should recognize that pack it's the same one that the Superbug was wearing for the ride to Baja. It fit's NOTSO a lot better. NOTSO's only loaded for a long weekend trip not two weeks plus only in one climate not planning for 30 degrees to 85 degrees........ Let me see what else can I do to come up with for justification as to why Superbug loaded so heavily. Ah heck, I just didn't plan well and Oldtimer has his act together better than I do.

I'll have my bike packed better for the Hells Canyon ride

By the way I talked to Oltimer this afternoon, he made it to his destination on NOTSO getting 60-62 mpg. He was busy looking for the Cake Baker then he saw a coors light and didn't want to talk to me anymore.

Now for the even more important stuff and the Baja ride. Live2Ride promissed he'd finish his ride report. OK Tim time to finish up or we'll have to come up with yet another name for you There are few others that haven't told about their rides home, what's with that? There are more stories lets hear them.

I got my photos in the bucket thing, now just got to figure out how to move them to the ride report. Got the shirt today in the mail. Only one from the trip I bet.

I can't find the info I had on the guy with the klr that lives in Portland and had the soft bags for the klr and I said i would get down there this summer and get them. Dwane, I think, but at this age one never knows about accuracy when memory is part of the mix.

I was cleaning my gear and found one of those Baja thorns stuck in the toe of my boot. Am I in trouble for bringing plants across the border?

I biffed it near Franks Casino and ran thru a dead cactus. I had a ball of cactus stuck on my shoe. It was so stickery I didn't want to grab it so I eventually just kicked it off with the other boot. I guess it left a souvenier.

Thanks to the Gunn family for taking us down the east road. A good trip.

Some of you need to add to this thread and/or finish your reports.

Sir, May I have some more, please?

I was showing a friend this thread and saw that no one has posted any more.

On a trip of this magnitude a person should learn a thing or two. Any way I never did post my summary.

Maybe I do take to many pictures. That was quite a tome I just put up. Thanks, to all that responded. Now that I’ve learned to do this I have a couple in the can, but I need a break. It’s a lot of work.

I am a solo rider at heart. I enjoyed the group ride, but it was best just meeting everyone at the end of the day.

I wish I were younger or could ride a bit better. I really hate being the last guy all the time. I was an auto racer for 20+ years and have a competitive side.

I am enervated by the Big Empty.

Frank’s Casino and El Arco were new territory for me. It would have challenged a few, as it did me, but the group could have made it thru there.

El Coyote is a special place. I’ll return.

Go to the big National Parks at sunrise. The crowds are huge.

I was a lucky son of a gun with the weather. It snowed inches the night I got home.

My guardian angel is still on the job.

TA’s are tough.

Go to Mexico. If you are fence sitting, just go. You won’t be disappointed. The riding on both dirt and pavment is excellent. The people are generous and cordial. The biggest difference is language. I prefer to ride the rugged parts of the west and NW Mexico is just a continuation of the SW USA. The logging villages in Sonora would fit just fine on the backside of my county in Idaho.

When we hit LA Bay I needed more I am now satiated. It was a good ride.

It was nice to see another post come up and very well said I might add.

There's still more pictures and stories out there from this ride but I suspect everyone is too busy with riding season to add to it. I know for me this is one of the few weekends I've been home since the end of Feb.

This ride was made be each and every rider that joined in on the fun. As I read other group ride reports I feel we so very lucky with the dynamics of this. Everyone got along, had a good time and a terrific ride.

You're all top notch folks !!
