Got home exactly at 2AM!

It was tough going but was fun. Hit the fallen tree on Pacifico, going uphill on 3rd gear, entering the left turn curve from far right. Kaboom! There's now way I can avoid it, saw it at 20 feet away, if I took the berm, they will pick me up on Angeles Forest Highway. I remember Bruce warned us, but I wasn't expecting it that soon and that BIG!



Thanks Rob, Rich, Ben, Charles (cribaby), MikeToon, Derek and Charles.

We did Lynx to Pacifico to NR to Pacifico to Lynx .......no carnage and everyone got off the trail in 1 piece. It was cold up there in Angeles Forest.

Hope all you guys made it home.

Pics and RR in the morning.

Outstanding Outing

H8chain, Thanks for organizing one outstanding skid. I had an excellent adventure. Blasting through Pacifico made the night for me. I'm glad that the downed tree only got you and the bike dusty and dirty with maybe a scratch or two as a reminder that you where there. Everyone else thanks and I hope that all made it home safe. I will try and post up my pictures later today or tomorrow.

I also had a great time. I never thought how focused on the trail you get in the dark. But then again that's all there is to see. Those huge dropoffs are out of sight.

That little branch in the trail didn't get to Joel. He picked himself up and drove around it.



Then came back and farted on it.



Great fun guys, and thanks Joel for the guidance.

I got home around 2:30. While I was putting the bike on the stand I notice the bike was not idleing right. So I checked around a bit. It turned out the new tank was pinching the cables. So off came the tank to fix that. Next I noticed the new fender was loose. It turned out one of the bolts had worked it self loose. While I was in the area I check one of my fog lights that was not working. I could not figure it out so it going back. After I put the bike back together It was 5:00am. When I entered the house my wife was on the sofa getting ready for work. She asked what time did I get home? I told her at 2:30am. I must lost track of time working on the bike. Good times last guys. Thanks Ben

The 14th is the last day PACIFICO will remain open...take advantage of it, or wait 6 more months...

Wish I can go....my right shoulder takes priority..will see a doctor tomorrow and get x-ray.
