Packed and ready to take off. Heading to Mojave to meet Mojave GS (Mark) and Magilla (James) at the Jack in The Box at the 58 and 14. At this point my poor KLR had no idea the amount of abuse I was going to give it



Fast forward, made it to camp, check in and set up


Friday morning took off to see the sights, headed up Sierra Hwy towards Johnsondale


Had to get pretty picture of bike nect to the river


Ran into Mark and he suggested a road right before the closure as a great place to see some spectacular views


On my way back down I noticed that the road closure was for all vehicals EXCEPT blue 2008 KLR's, so I went!


So I continued towards trail of 1000 giants and went south at the 190 intersection to Pine Flat at which point the paved road turned to dirt, YEA!! I found an off shoot that turned out to be a road to an area to cut fire wood, it was awsome




After geting back onto the main "dirt" road I came out at an intersection that would take me to Sugarloaf. This is where I figured out I must be on 23S05



I started heading east to get to Portuguese Pass and came across a area of "summer" homes and a very nice meadow



Finally arived at Portuguese Pass and ran into snow, by my self, gona have to turn around


Time to head for Glennville and the 155, here is the intersection at 155 and Jack Ranch Road


Headed back to camp via 155, that had to be the most fun road I have ever been on. When I got back to camp I met my camp mates Ben, Lindsay and Mark. I gotta say, my KLR was a little intimidated by all the Orange


I do want to thank Ben and Lindsay for keeping my beer cold and alerting the powers to be that I went missing on Saturday, but that is another story for another report (Teaser - Danny G's E ticket tours)






Skiping to Sunday, this is what a '08 KLR looks like waiting for a tow truck, It just looked at me and said "FUCK YOU! I'm done, I want a ride home"


I had an absolute blast and want to thank Mike and all the orginizers for the time they spent making this happen

My Version

I managed to wrangle Thursday off and make Warped 4 Good a long weekend. And what a weekend it turned out to be. Good friends, good food, good roads and good weather, what more could you ask for.

I left town with Treadless and Computorless and we hit Hwy 33 and then zig-zaged across the central valley. We took a little break in Caliente and after sitting there for about five minutes, in rolls MojaveGS, Magilia, and 2old2race. Then it was time for Caliente/Bodfish Rd, what a hoot that road is. No pics 'cause I've done it a bunch, but a few others have post a few above.

No sooner than I rooled into camp, I started running into some of the usual suspects. It's the people that make these things fun

Gerg. Who again went way out of his way to provide Thurs dinner


Santa/Glen


Magila/James


Craig Britton got some jalapinoze starting to sizzle and then loaded them up with blue cheese and they were sooooo gooood, yum


2old2race/Bob was warming up to the event in the early evening light


Chicken, check


Tritip and brauts, check


Antman say, lets eat


Computorless/John smelled the chow and came dressed right


After the sun went down it got dark. Not sure it was from the sun going down of the quantity of brown liquor that was consumed, but never the less, it got dark. There was much laughter and knee deep bullshit and a good time all around.

more n a few, my microwave dinner is ready

Bob.. great photos.. all of them. It really bites about the bike deciding to end it's day before you did, though.
Here's hoping you manage to get it worked out under warranty and back on the road soon!
Thanks for the pix.

Thanks Walt, it was great meeting you. That RT of yours is beutifull, gonna have to save my $$ and get me one of those. Next rally we'll have to go for a ride together. I go on the rides with the "young" kids and I get my ass kicked every time. Reality set in this weekend when I was riding with SBBILLDER (Bill) and he said, "Your about my dads age", ouch! I really enjoyed meeting you and all of the other ADV guys and gals and putting faces to names and names to screen names.

hahahaahh. I'm an old fart on an old beat up R1100RS.... I passed a bunch of those sportbike kids on 198 and 25 going home yesterday, then two old farts on R1200GS's blew by me like I was standing still. They didn't have any luggage, so I don't think they were coming from Warped, and I just didn't feel like pushing my bike over 90 with luggage, plus I was getting into the smooth cruise thing on the last legs of my 6 hour ride home...

I don't even wanna TALK about this one long Harley train climbing 198 out of Priest Valley in close formation who made me pass them over the double yellow one by one

This is stuff I'm talking about kicking my ass, try doin this shit while somebody else is getting your raffel prize. Never pass up a Danny G adventure ride, everybody should do it ONCE.


Unfortunately I did not learn my lesson, this is what I looked like the last time I participated in "Danny G's adventure rides" at Stonewalls bash last year. That's one of Danny G's buddys looking at me and wondering who was going to give me CPR. I'm sure I'll do it again this August, 2 things you can count on, when it's over you had fun and you have got great camp fire stories

As we pulled into the campground, we were greeted by Super Mike aka Treadless. He helped us find our home for the next couple of days and pointed us towards campsite #26….




After setting up camp, we wandered over towards Stonewall. He spotted us pulling in and recognized that I was the guy who he brought the Inyo maps for. We talked about all the ride options there are out in his neck of the woods. Then I looked over and saw Henry trying to start his KTM. He had a dead battery and was getting a little push start. Frank seems to be managing this operation just fine….


We headed over to the store to fuel up “the big bike” and picked up some additional items we had forgotten….


Friday night dinner….


Appetizers….


Main Dish….


Dinner Mates Daniel (Sam Buca) and Errin (ErrinV)….


Our Saturday Jawbone crew….


Henry and his rock….


Mrs. Monkeytrick taking charge….


Henry blurring by….


Oops. Dead End….


Frank….


Henry helping us find a way outta here and Mark giving the us an encouraging salute….


A car farm….


Stopped to water the bushes….


Jawbone Canyon Rd and Hwy 14…




Chopper….


Jawbone Store….








The ride back….


















Scenery….








After we returned from our great ride, CaStu introduced himself, explained that he had blown clutch slave cylinder and asked if I had a spare. I told him I didn’t have a spare, but that I’m done with my ride for today and he can take the one off my bike. Besides, he needed to ride home the next day and I had the trailer so it was a no brainer.

DrStu applied the customary sanitized gloves, installed the newly donor’d organ and began administering fluids into the ill fated victim….




There were several close calls, when we thought we might lose the patient, and the doctor consulled with his team Rider914 and ErrinV to weigh the options of the current situation….


A decision is made and DrStu with a determined slow hand and an easy touch, proceeded with the operation. His team bowed their heads and said a little prayer to the warped gods above…..and below. Will the operation be a success….


YES!!!! The patients resilient chassis and warm heartening will to live accepted its new organ and was ready for tomorrows journey home. Smiles, laughter and tears filled the air, warm tingly feelings flowed like Knob Creek down your belly and the sound of cold alcoholic beverages echoed across the valley with a rolling thunderous roar and the angels wept….











Anyhoo, time for Saturday Dinner. The line….




Mrs. Monkeytrick, Windrat, and Richard Cabesa….


A slice of heaven….


More slices….


Traderjoe and his infamous top secret buffet style “two plate” stacking method….


OCBlue650 was so excited, he dropped his fork in the sand and as legend goes, he licked off the dirt, sandfleas, ticks and debris and continued with his meal without a blink of an eye….


Traderjoe explaining to us the art of hunting via compound bow and arrow. Very interesting stuff. Would love to check that out….(picture courtesy of gerg)


Gfunk….


After dinner, there was the raffle. I won a 12v air pump….(picture courtesy of gerg)


And a bear hug from CaStu. Here’s Stu on the charge…. (picture courtesy of gerg)


One last goodbye to our dearly beloved site #26….


This is a great place to camp….



All in all, we had a great time, met many good people, ate good food, did a fun ride, drank many o drinks, and assisted in a keg robbery. Thanks to Stonewall for the maps and 2Old2Race (Bob) for sharing his camp with us and for coming back to the camp safely and with a great story!

Thanks to Treadless Mike, Honey Diane and all the minions who made this event possible.

On behalf of Mrs Monkeytrick and myself…….Cheers!

Saturday's Ride

continued...........

Our Saturday morning began innocent enough, starting with a nice breakfast then go for a pleasant ride. DannyG asked if we would like to join them, which made us a group of 6 with 2old2race/Bob, DannyG/Danny, Gutte/Tomer?, AnySunday/Bob, Alon? and myself.

DannyG/Danny:


Gutte/Tomer:


AnySunday/Bob:


Alon(sp):


2old2race/Bob:


Me:


Before I get into the riding part of this, I would like to just say that these guys I was riding with were all studds. Our day was pretty trying at times for each of us and everyone kept a great attitude and we all worked well together. Our long day would have been much longer without the team work.

We rode out of town on Caliente-Bodfish headed to Brekenridge Road, from there we took narrow roads & single track which branched off in different directions.



























We were riding on the east side of the mountain, so as we neared the summit, we came across this........



Nothin' like handling a 550lb machine over snow & ice.....thought I lost it here, but some how kept it up.


skills......










We stopped for a coffee, Starbucks was closed so out came the Jetboil. Way better than Starbucks.





We reached the summit and headed down the west side....


Encountering the first of many of these across the road....




Not moving this one.....



....little higher boys......


When we couldn't go thru it or under it, we went around it........















ooops.....




At some point we came across these 2 that had their truck stuck in the snow, in the middle of no where. We pushed it out, then realized we needed to air up the tires. I'll let you figure out the contraption at the trailer lights....engineered by AnySunday.





.......to be continued......

The plan: Ride to angryscot's house thursday night & meet up with ShortFatSally & MsBianca @ around 0715, ride out to Coalinga for b-fast and to allow SFS to conduct his 'conference call' and then to continue on until we reached WARPED by 3 or 4pm.

What REALLY Happened:
SFS and MsBianca FINALLY show up at and hour and 15 minutes late (even though he SAID he was packed at mid-night the evening before)


We take height measurements and establish something I knew all along. The scotsman was so excited he almost started dancing a jig!


unable to make it to Coalinga in time for SFS 'conference call' we take a REALLLLLLLLY long breakfast break of about 2 hours ....... in Los Pinos. Gosh.....THAT was FUN!!!


I lead most of the time, because Angryscot is too lazy to make a route on his GPS and because SFS is cant seem to download the most up to date software for his GPS. Knowing SFS is an 'aggressive' rider I tried to keep a slower pace in the twisties, but it didnt help; MsBianca needed a few breaks.


We were SUPPOSED to have arrived in Kernvile around 3 or 4. But 4 turned into 5, and 5 turned into 6. FINALLY....around 6:30 or so we arrived to a MOST cheerful welcome from all my good ADV inmates. Camp was set up and the booze broken out. I was hoping a little rum would drown out my ever increasing cough and runny nose, it didnt seem to help.


Saturday morning was ride time! Myself, ITSATDM and Oly set out to ride out to Chimney peak and Castle rock (??). I was a bit hesitant initally as I wasnt running much of a dirt tire, and the last time I'd TRIED this road I hit more sand than I liked and had to turn around. Now, with a few more miles of dirt under my belt I knew 3rd gear and 50mph was the key to traversing sand. We made our way up the mountain via a few switchbacks to a fork. Oly took a breather to decide which way to go.

"I hear the road is washed out, but maybe we can still make it"


We hit the 'wash-out' but kept going. Who knew what we'd see next.....


The area had been hit by a fire recently so there were downed trees all over. We made our way along until we came accross a tree accross the road. I talked Oly and ITSATDM into giving me a hand moving the trunks off the trail. We were a little hot, thirsty, and getting a little hungry...but we figured we'd get this tree out of the way and back to the riding



but we hit tree


after tree.....


after tree


we got a little sick of riding 100 yards, stopping, and having to dismount the bikes to clear the fallen trees out of the way. That was a bit of work we thought. That is until I got the pyg stuck on the side of the road in the dirt. OOOPS!!


the road almost disapeared infront of us


We finally made our way back to camp, ready for the evening fun. Enroute to dinner I found a little dwarf sitting on the back of the bike. Funny thing is, it wasn't Angryscot



The inmates all in attendance:

Dyvking, ready for drinking (note beer and cup in back pocket)












I had picked up some schwag, and had donated a few items myself

We keep asking 'When's the wedding?'


Gerg tries to get the noObs to 'check in' for the de-noObing ceremony


The morning after everyone begins packing up. MojaveGS and ShortFatSally discuss the finer things in life; the pro's and con's of wearing a bananna as a riding suit.


We pack up and make our way out Hwy 178. Ever notice how close you are to the edge?


Along the way, we had to pay homage to 'Dances with Wolves"......
Buff.......buff.....buffalo. TATANKA!


Sally still got MsBianca sick, even after she got smart and took some Dramameme (sp?)


The ride home was QUITE interesting. Considering we werent on the road until 10am we (er Sally) decided to get on the 5 and scoot home. That was a nice plan, but with all the idiots doing 90mph, the crazy broad who came inches away from hitting me (who was then chased down and given the ADV Salute ), and the crazy jiggaboo who nearly ran ShortFatSally off the road after he got the salute too for riding our asses while we passed a big-rig truck. After all that we took the slower and more scenic Hwy 101. 10 hours later I was home, showered and crawled into bed with a horrible cough and runny nose.

WARPED IV GOOD was a great event. They seem to be getting better and better every time! Hopefully we can get some new faces involved in keeping WARPED going in '09. Until then, Oly says it all.......




ok......thats MY report. its 0330, and I have to get up in 2.5 hours for school. FUCK!
