partial Ride Report on an EPIC ride!!!!!

stats:

left L.A. at 5AM on friday to meet TRID to make it to Lancaster by 6ish

got home tonite at 7:45

many many many beers consumed

400+ miles ridden in 2 days, 90% dirt

friday rode 7 AM til 5:30 PM

saturday rode 6:30 AM til 4:00PM

(pssst what happens in vegas ......)


met some amazing ppl and a few of the AMA District 37 head guys, re-met CA STU on the highlight of day 2 in Red Rock Cyn(the most amazing views and rock structures).

day 1 while registering, ran into Chris (knrlkrn) so we had a strong rider and an amazing guy to ride with, as well as Paul(trid) , Duane(the regulator) , and some others.

only bike problems besides the shit stock suspension on the KLR( which i am taking donations now for a new set up ! ! ! ) was trid on day 2 had his muffler bolt fall out, put another smaller one in, broke, bail wired it together, broke, then cut a chain link fence from an abandoned gas station, oh yeah, AND while all this was happening his subframe broke.

i just want to say thanks to duane, paul and chris for a fucking rad time!!!!

next year i wanna see more of you FFs on this EPIC ride!

there were hard sections, HERO sections and easy routes so everyone on here could go and have a blast!!!

here's a teaser, more pics later....

WAY steeper than it looks! if you have ever skiid or snowboarded, this is equivalent to a black diamond run!!!


beautiful sunset!!!


yeeeeehaaawww!!!!! bailing wire trail side fix

Wicked Barstow to vegas only

Did saturday only, some very nasty sandwashes early on, 6 1/2 hours riding 250 miles, 3 1/2 hours taking breaks, peeing , gassing, lunch, helping others, getting helped, shooting the breeze. What a blast. Just got home to Fresno. Put the bike down twice very early in slow very soft sand dunes, put foot down and just sank and just kinda fell over at 3 mph. Vibrated rear light and turn signal off on my DR 650, buddy's XR 400 did the same thing.

That's a load of crap! A KLR won't go that fast. Unless it's downhill, or over a cliff.

Dang that must been a LOOOONNNNGGGG downhill!!!

You da man!

What a great ride. I'm glad I made this one happen.
It's going to be hard to top this one but I'm up for the challenge!

I arrived at Riders Choice in Lancaster about 6am and got checked in and geared up. We started riding about 7:30 or so..

Saw RAZR & Trid at the start and they didn't mind if I tagged along..

at Riders Choice

MUD = NO DUST
a lone GS survived the mud puddles..

RAZR ..overlooking the desert


Trid on his BRP

the hillclimb on Barren Ridge

it was hard to get up this thing!

lots of guys didn't make it up, some bailed..



all made it up the hill climb

definately felt like an accomplishment

Google Earth aerial view of that one

I met these riders from Wisconsin

What go's Up..
The downhills after Barren Ridge were pretty steep!

The ruts claimed a few riders

This was the last pic I took on day one.
Jawbone Store refreshments & gas stop. 2 pumps, 30 bikes, but ya gotta pay first!

we rode hard but missed the hero loop cutoff time after a late lunch.
End of Day 1

Day 2 BARSTOW: 5:45am
a beautiful sunrise

still dark and early


Just as we are ready to roll, I look over and notice Trids muffler was missing a bolt, but we found a replacement and were rolling shortly after

Until that bolt fell out a few miles away,
a combination of safety wire and chain link held it until later

with muffler problem resolved we decided we had better catch up time wise and took the "adventure route"






Powerline Road



the "Adventure Route" had some pretty deep sandy miles on it.
Ace Repair work!

at Baker gas stop & re-repair
found a support truck with a bucket of bolts to choose from Trid quickly had the BRP's muffler safely secured. This helped hold the subframe on later!



more comin..
