We had some play time on top of Mengal. scruffy and Rich (sorry I forgot your screen name) went up first.

Here is scruffy:




Then Rammer went. Only he didn't have enough speed:



Then the big 950 got stuck on a big rock:



so scruffy moved it:



and away he went:



and then they came back down:




I have to add that it's much steeper than it looks and those ruts up top are a whole different story.

lets see if this works. I made an animated gif and it works on my computer but not sure if it will on smugmug.








whoohoo it works.

It's not as good as ZenSlugs but it all the skills I got.

Great pics and videos! My brother and I rode different routes from the rest of you. The best was chasing the sun down from the Saline Valley hot springs to Eureka Dunes. The sun won. Good to meet some of you Saturday night/Sunday morning.Thanks to BigJohn for the cigar Saturday night.

The travels of a transplanted tiger or "does my cell phone work here?"

Part four....
Today the couragous thirteen head out to hunter-teakettle-racetrack and the crater. Not necessarily in that order.
Starting off with the mandatory photo op at the sign. Many people I just met and please forgive me if I don't remember all the names...



A gathering at Hunter Mountain Pass. Great views from both sides of the pass.




Oh.. This road looks really EASY and really FAST.



I can even take pictures on the road because it is soooo smooooth...



Hey........ Crap..... four wheels looks pretty good right about now..



................................Oh the Carnage...........



ADV'r getting a little furry around the cheeks... oh wait.
Thats dirt... And he still Smiles..



Teakettle Junction.... Here is where the big bikes split from the smaller more nimble bikes. Except for Steve, our new leader..
He just hauls ass and lets us lumber along to the Crater.



Where did the ADV teapot go???????



We need a break.



Hey guys;; Is that some kinda cloud formation ahead? The weather report said clear skies and warm weather all weekend.



What's that Orange thing on the ground...



Steve!! Did you wait long?? Oh.. That long eh?



It's bigger than it looks.




The fearsome three.



Notice TrailTrick it's like he was just resting all day. That guy can ride.



Close up and personal........ Hey who's that in the back?



Hey;;; That looks like Jeff... He does not look happy.. That is a man who can tolerate pain for sure.

Take Care and Heal fast my friend!!,,




That covers day 2.
More to follow....
