Mengel Pass

seeing this marker on top of the hill makes us nOObs shit in our pants meaning "Mr. Mengel" is not too far and waiting for us


still have few moments to smile ....rruugger, davebro, and zing


some guys just could not wait to get to Mengel, zing on the gsa (before mengel condition )



my bike was too skeered to move one and played dead


not just once but twice


mengel at last....


we cheated................we brought baby sitters with us



davebro don't need help at the bottom of the hill...


dean was the only victim....


dean got up and rode it out!


zing rippped his "hollywood approved skid plate"


which in no time, our official trailside mechanic sito was able to fix


i have a suspicion that the 950s have an anti-gravity device built in them...jeff and sito


mengel is over rated..... , and we officially added it to the nOObs gpx file

Fun Fun

Have to say saw about every kind of different kind of riding I thought I would and was as much fun as I can remember. Havent gotten the camera out of the tank bag not that I know how to post the pics I got anyhow but I will try after dinner. Think I will dedicate this weekend to fixing broken pieces on the bike and those that were there know of one. The reports are super cool and I would like to make one when I learn how to post my pics. Smugmug account would make life easier right? To everyone thanks and broken spoke thanks for helping me get the pig up before Joel could get a pic of it down.

Hey Zing,

I was another GSA guy in DV this weekend, didn't have the balls for the Mengal stuff. I can claim the 2nd GSA skidplate casualty this weekend, only it wasn't in the dirt... Crossing train tracks at 70 mph took mine!

Dinner Time

after 300 miles of continuous riding (from home) , we made it to furnace creek in the dark. 150 miles for those who came from camp stovepipe. aware it's already dark, and that we will be too tired to make dinner, we decided to treat ourselves....

.........................

dean was freaking out to see food !


zing showing off his meat



adam was a hard cored vegan until he saw zing's meat .........and he enjoys fingering his meat too....


mine is as big as zing

Great pics....I took only a couple....

86d4life and I didn't get on the bikes until after noon on Friday so we only rode up to Chloride and then back down Titus.....

Saturday we made up for it with a 320 mile loop...we saw a good size group on Saline including on fast FF on a yellow DRZ and a white helmet...you sir can ride... ....

320 miles before the sun goes down means a lot of this....


Sunday we went to go see all the fresh snow....
