Great trip!

The highlight was the Coyote flats trail, very challenging on the big beast.

Pix don't to the steepness and elevation justice.

The bike all packed and ready to roll on street tires




My riding partner, Scorpion aka keep it under 100, on ride up to camp, just finished fixing his clutch at the rendevouz place



While gassing up in Mojave, we came across this Australian kid (Cameron) doing a full loop of California on a tiny 125NX



Scorpion and I caught up with these guys on the 395.
